Preventing Lost Pets with DogWatch Hidden Fences
Did you know that more than 10 million pets are lost each year in the United States, and one out of three pets will be lost during its lifetime? To bring attention to this issue, July has been designated Lost Pet Prevention Month, with the goals of increasing resources for preventing lost pets and relocating lost pets with their owners. July was chosen because July 5th is typically the busiest day for shelter intakes in the United States. The increase is shelter admissions on July 5th is attributed to dogs escaping their homes or running from their owners due to fear of 4th of July fireworks.
At DogWatch®, it’s our mission to keep pets safe. We are pet owners ourselves, and can understand the heartache that pet owners must feel when their pet is lost. We are dedicated to creating products than can help reduce the number of lost pets and give pet parents peace of mind that their dogs (and cats) will not be one of those 10 million lost each year.
Our hidden fences are designed to give pets the freedom to run, play and exercise outdoors, while at the same time staying safe within their yards and away from potential hazards such as roads, wooded areas, pools, gardens and more. We are committed to providing the best safety features in the industry, including our patented SafeLink® Digital FM signal and other unique features like AutoMemory® and FastReact®. The SmartFence® goes even further – it keeps owners connected to their hidden fence even when they’re not at home, with customized text messages and notifications to alert you if you need to change a battery, if there is a power outage, and more.
But don’t just take our word for it. Everyday, we hear stories from our customers about how DogWatch Hidden Fences have changed their lives for the better. Here are a few examples:
- I am a single mom business owner with a stubborn black lab. After trying to juggle everything in my life by myself for too long, I decided some things needed to change. One of them is the disappearance of my dog. If I turned my back on him for just 2 seconds he was gone. I was tired of not being able to just open the door and let my dog out. It was so frustrating having to put my daughter in the car and go look for him time and time again. So after talking to a friend this spring about the hidden fence, I decided to look into it. OMG I wish I did this 7 years ago!! My dog is a completely different dog. Being able to be outside more gives him the exercise he so badly craved and the fence gives him the boundaries that he needed to help keep him in line! I can not say enough good about this product or the company! The installation was quick, the training precise and easy, and the results phenomenal! I did not realize I was not only getting a hidden fence, but a better behaved dog too!!! Thank you! — Jackie F., DogWatch of Upstate New York customer
- We have a Border Collie puppy that started chasing cars (and lawnmowers, bikes, etc.) and ran like crazy after deer and other wildlife on our farm. Dogwatch Hidden fence allowed us to create a huge safe area for her to roam around but with a gentle correction at the ‘fence-line’ that keeps her from running wild. She’s happy to have free run of the acreage (no more dog run!) and we’re happy that she’s safe and secure. Within a week she understood the system and we would recommend it to anyone with similar issues! — Julliette, DogWatch of Peace Country customer
- My dog is a skilled escape artist with a Beagle nose. He climbed chainlink fences, dug out of privacy fences, dug under the concrete to prevent him from digging out, used his dog house to jump over fences…Nothing we could do would keep him in, and we spent hours chasing him. We read really great reviews about DogWatch of Chattanooga and decided to call. Cliff was a lifesaver! He came out the day we called and gave us an estimate and was back in a couple days to install the wiring. Cliff got it completed in a day!!! He even took the time to train us and our dog on how to use the fence. Our dog has not gotten loose once since Cliff installed. This company and Cliff are lifesavers! Would highly recommend to anyone!!! — Bayli Y., DogWatch of Chattanooga customer
