Did you know that DogWatch works for cats, too! Check out this great video from a very happy DogWatch cat customer!
Boo is a 1 year-old deaf male cat from Dallas, TX who loves to play in his backyard. Keeping him in the backyard, however, was a problem. Despite his family’s best efforts to keep him contained, Boo frequently climbed over fences and in trees to explore his neighborhood. This behavior is especially risky for Boo, as he is unable to hear the sounds of cars, wildlife or other potential dangers.
Boo’s family was in need a solution to keep him safe while still giving him the outside access he craved. So they called their local DogWatch Dealer, DFW DogWatch, to learn more about hidden fences for cats. “After long hard deliberation,” Boo’s mom wrote on YouTube, “we decided to install a hidden/radio fence with a correction collar to keep our cat Boo in the yard.” Read post »

Walking German Shepherds (and many other dogs) on leash can be a challenge for the average dog owner. That’s why DogWatch created the SideWalker® Leash Trainer, a training collar that gently corrects overly enthusiastic leash pulling and helps dogs (of all shapes and sizes) learn appropriate on-leash behavior.
To see how the SideWalker helped one German Shepherd pet parent gain control of walks with her dogs, we reached out to Lorna, a DogWatch customer from Van Hornesville, New York. Lorna is pet parent to two beautiful German Shepherds, a four year-old female named Bella (left) and a two year-old male named Solo (right). Both dogs were avid leash pullers, especially Solo.

How did your dog get his or her name? Did you name them after someone – say, a character from your favorite book or movie?

As we approach the end of 2016, we decided to take a look back to see which dog names were the most popular among our many new DogWatch customers nationwide. Check out our list below, and see if you dog’s name made the list!
