The increase in domestic natural gas production has created thousands of new energy jobs and opportunities, not just for humans but for dogs, too.
Canine pipeline inspections offer an alternative to traditional inspection methods.
“It’s an environmentally friendly, cost-effective approach,” said Susan Hagberg, president of CDIS K9 Pipeline Leak Inspection in Chicago Ridge, Illinois. “We quickly find the leak and save [the pipeline owner] money, all by using a trained dog.”
Hagberg performed a demo of the company’s services at Midstream PA 2017 on Oct. 19 in State College, Pennsylvania. She also discussed canine natural gas pipeline inspections with The Stream.
