She’s one in all two inventors featured on the Sept. 6 episode of Quirky (10 pm ET), a Sundance Channel actuality collection constructed round a product-development firm that brings the innovations of on a regular basis of us to market—with a giant dose of public enter by way of social media.
Carpenter is an unemployed single mother, an ex-New York police officer (with the accent to match), who pulled collectively her concept for the Kosuko leash looking for one thing that labored for her and her canine, Pom. I’ve severe reservations about retractable leashes. On the very least, they encourage unhealthy leash-walking conduct, and on the worst, the prolonged leads create tangling and strangling dangers. Plus, a canine operating out the complete size of the leash can construct momentum that’s harmful for the canine and the walker.
That stated, I’m impressed with individuals who take an concept and run with it, particularly if the motivation is, no less than partly, to make our lives with our canines higher.
