Does your dog dig holes in the yard? Instead of scolding Fido, grab a camera!

We’re looking for a canine safety ambassador to star in our safe digging campaign. Your dog can help spread an important safety message: Doggone it! Call 811 Chicago at 811 before you dig.

Whether you’re planting a tree or installing a fence post, you could be putting yourself in danger if you strike an underground natural gas line or electrical cable. Now, your furry friend can help raise awareness about safe digging.
