Dogs, owner shocked by Smart Meter

BY SARAH SIMPSON, CITIZEN JUNE 8, 2012 

Sahtlam resident Chris Davis lives on a five-acre parcel near the rural community’s fire hall.To give his two dogs Minnie and Katie room to roam but to also keep them contained, Davis installed an electric dog fence around the entirety of his property.

“My dogs wear a collar and then it gives them a little shock if they get too far past the fence,” Davis explained. “There’s never been an issue. Ever.”

That is, until BC Hydro contractor Corix installed a smart meter at his house.

“The smart meter gives my dogs electric shocks when they go near the meter,” Davis explained. “The collar starts bleeping and shocks them to the point where they yelp.”
