What People Are Saying About DogWatch

Vicki H., Dublin, Ohio

We were very happy with DogWatch of Columbus. They provided very personal and professional service. The company owner was involved every step of the way, including installation and training our dog in using the fence. It was nice working with a smaller, more personal company.

DogWatch Hidden Fence works! We have two dogs and one loves to chase squirrels and rabbits. This morning I let both dogs out and there was a rabbit in the yard, both took off after it but stopped well before the boundary line. Then they both turned around and came back to the deck. So happy we called DogWatch of Columbus!

We had used another dog fence company before finding Dog Watch of Columbus. What a difference we found using DogWatch! All Companies are truly not the same. If we have any concerns, questions, or problems they are solved in minutes by Emily or Pat. With the other company, it often took days or even weeks to get answers to our questions or resolutions to our problems.

We recently moved and our Dog Watch system was included in the sale of the home; however, I am currently making arrangements for an installation in our new home. Plus, I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the price remained on the Dog Watch System. We are so glad to be back in the DogWatch Family and thrilled to know that Sophie, Buckeye and Maxie Mae will all be safe again.


Sean M. – Hilliard, Ohio

We love our DogWatch Hidden Fence. Half the cost of the other “invisible fence” company and twice the service. And yes, it can contain two Great Danes.

Leslie & Mark S. – Galena, Ohio

My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Emily and Pat on two separate occasions. The first time was at our last house where we were very skeptical of how an invisible dog fence could possibly keep our two golden retrievers in their yard when all they love to do is lick people! We had a bad experience with a previous competitor of theirs and had hoped it would be different with Dogwatch. Well, Pat and Emily exceeded our expectations from the very beginning! Scheduling was very accommodating and Emily is extremely friendly! When Pat came out to do the install, he was also very friendly and did a great job on the installation. He takes pride in his workmanship and makes sure the job is done right. After he finished the fence, he spent as much time as we felt we him to train us and our dogs on the new fence. He let us know that we could call him and ask any questions or voice any concerns from there on out. The Dogwatch Fence NEVER let us down. It was extremely easy to train our dogs on. It always worked-we always felt at ease knowing our dogs were safe in our yard.

That's why when we moved into our new house, we had Dogwatch put in our second fence. There was no question on who we were going to call. Three years later, Pat and Emily still offered the same great product and customer service. We have added a third dog to the mix and he has adjusted beautifully. I was pleasantly surprised to see they have updated their collars even more and they are now more slim line and lighter weight. I simply cannot say enough good things about Dogwatch of Columbus! I'm happy to be able to support a local small business who takes pride in their product!


Veterinarian Debbie H. – Lewis Center, Ohio

Fender is absolutely loving his new hidden fence! Thank you so much!!

Paul & Kathy D. – Pataskala, Ohio

Wife says: "Love this product! Husband did not want the dog - wife did. Husband did not want in-ground fence - wife did. Guess who won? We have fence and dog. Fence has even helped in potty training! Love my DogWatch Hidden Fence and my husband too."

Husband says: "All above is true. DogWatch Fence was best investment ever!"


Bret B. – Hilliard, Ohio

Day 8 and doing great! Had our boy Ozzie off the leash in the back yard playing and a big deer decided to test him out by walking through. Ozzie ran him off and stopped five feet short of the flags!


Mark S. – Columbus, Ohio

We love you guys...you're like doing business with family. No 800 number and no corporate shenanigans. Love it.


Amber M. – Newark, Ohio

I wanted to give you an update on Howie and his bark collar! He has been using it for about 3 months now and we love it!

When we rescued Howie 2 years ago, we could tell that he had been abused and he had developed several bad habits. We worked through many of them and he has become such a sweet part of our family, but he did have a bad habit of barking incessantly.

The bark collar has been a tremendous help! He wore it full time during the waking hours of the day for the first month, but now he only wears it when we are inside and it is set on the vibrating mode.

We love this collar because it allows him to bark to alert without receiving a correction - but when he starts barking more than necessary, he is corrected. We also like that the collar has flexible training levels preprogrammed and of course being a Dog Watch product, we know we are getting a great value and that we can come to you for awesome service!

We have only had to charge it two times since receiving it and it is really easy to set up. We would definitely recommend this product to others who have dogs with bad barking habits!

Thanks so much for always being there for our dogs!!

If you're looking for an invisible fence company - look no further! This is a customer service oriented company with competitive prices. I would highly recommend!


Carol S. – Powell, Ohio

Emily, thanks so much. Buddy and Holly are sticking in their yard thanks to your help!

Butch & Cherri K. – Alexandria, Ohio

Pat & Emily, we can't say enough about how happy we are to see Joey running and playing in his newly "fenced" yard. What a joy! We are so proud of him; he learned very quickly! Our experience with your company far surpassed what we could have expected. Very personalized and no high pressure tactics! We will definitely recommend DogWatch of Columbus to any friends and family considering this type of fencing. Thanks again from one dog lover to another!


Karen G. – Wothington, Ohio

We love DogWatch of Columbus! We've had our hidden fence for less than a year and couldn't be happier! We back up to a public park and have had NO issues! Great Customer Service - very personal, like working with our good friends! Our dogs chewed up the plastic monitor piece and they replaced it for free because it was under warranty. Also bought a remote collar system - can I say AWESOME!?! Thanks Pat and Emily!

Verna H. – Delaware, Ohio

Emily, thanks to you and Pat for your quick response to my short notice request. As always, you folks are unsurpassed by anyone when it comes to service excellence. Lots of companies talk about it, but no one has ever delivered the way you do. Thanks again, I really appreciate your help.


Greg C. – Galena, Ohio

Hello! If you have landed on the DogWatch of Columbus page… look no further! Pat and Emily are the most professional team. I have had my system installed for nearly a year now and it works PERFECTLY. I had an acre and a half system installed for two medium/large dogs. This team is personable & professional and the install went as smooth as anyone could expect. They were very considerate of our home and left the install site extremely clean. Their passion for your pet shines through, it is very obvious this is more than just a business. The DogWatch system is flawless for us and their price is very fair. My mind is at ease that I can count on this system to contain my guys. My ONLY regret is that I did not contact DogWatch sooner to install this system. Feel free to contact me as a reference as I highly recommend that you select DogWatch of Columbus to ensure your four legged loved one’s protection.

We love our DogWatch® invisible fence. We first met Pat 12 years ago when we got our Jack Russell ,Trixie. The hidden fence has been awesome. We now own our second Jack Russell, Magee, so Pat trained her last spring with great results! We highly recommend them as we love the "big girl collars" the girls wear.


Glover S.‎ – Galena, Ohio

This is Gunnar! He is a Bernese Mountain Dog at 16 weeks of age and we love the mess out of him! This is a picture of him out in the back yard after a few days of training with the amazing Dogwatch Hidden Fence. Pat came out on the 2nd of Feb. to do our training and Gunnar has done fantastically well! He seems even more happy to have the freedom of moving around the yard on his own, and my wife and I love that we don't have be with him every minute when he is outside as well.

Terry & Gina S. – Westerville, Ohio

Pat came to our house last fall because our 5 year old Shih Tzu was nearly hit by a car after darting out our front door. She loves people and that was just too close a call for us.

Pat was very good to explain the DogWatch® System to us, so we gave them a try.

Today our 10 year old Lasa Mix and Sasha LOVE THEIR YARD! Sasha no longer has to be tethered and we know they are safe because the system is excellent! It is tailored to their sensitivity ad they love their collars because they know they can roam their yard freely.

Thank you Pat and Emily!


Erica C. – Columbus, Ohio

Our DogWatch Hidden Fence is amazing at containing our high energy Poodle/Wheaton Mix Clover. She just recently watched a bunny run across the neighbor's driveway today and didn't even think about running after it!

I also want to mention our new indoor unit.   Before we got an indoor unit, our dog considered the kitchen her turf. It became clear that I needed to take back my kitchen one day when I made some cookies and set them on a baking rack on our counter to cool. Not thinking anything of it, I took our toddler upstairs to put her down for a nap. When I came back downstairs, there were only three cookies left of the dozen I had made...my pup looked guilty (and pleasantly full). I knew something had to change. I talked with Emily and she suggested the indoor unit. With this helpful piece of technology, our dog is hesitant to even venture into the kitchen, which makes meal-prep much easier and less stressful. She doesn’t jump up on the counter to help herself to tasty treats. I feel like I have my kitchen back and peace of mind when it comes time to leave cookies unattended.

DogWatch® is amazing! We have 5 ornery dogs that like to explore. DogWatch saved us! Our furry ones are now safe. Thanks DogWatch®!


Lori H. – Westerville, Ohio

It's day 7, and I reluctantly did it...I dropped Gracie's leash to the ground and let her go. She kept turning around and looking at me like I had gone mad. I really don't know how I will ever get that girl back inside, but what a great problem to have. Thank you DogWatch !!!


Jen S. – Centerburg, Ohio

Not only do WE love the Remote Trainer, but our mail carrier is actually brave enough to get out of their vehicle now! We don't even have to press the shock button. Chief is familiar with the audible beep from the fence, so he backs off & stops barking as soon as he hears the Remote Trainer beep. Humane treatment of dog & dry undergarments for the mail carrier;) Thanks DogWatch!

Dave B. – Logan, Ohio

Dear Patrick and Emily,

I cannot thank you enough for your never ending, very prompt and courteous service throughout the years. As you know, I have had a DogWatch Fence, covering approximately 10 acres, for at least 20 years.

Even though I live in Hocking County you are always here when I need you to find an interruption in the fence, through mud, snow, briars, and brambles.

Your immediate service on equipment, and no cost replacement to receivers (you just send a receiver to me at no cost - to replace one that one of our other dogs chewed up) never ceases to amaze me. What a company and how lucky are we to have you as dealers.

Anyone with a dog - and we have six - should have a DogWatch System. Simply put - they work! Thank you, thank you!!!


Ike M. – Hilliard, Ohio

The Big Leash has restored peace to our household. We have a five-year-old German Shepard named Bear. We adopted him about a year ago he had a few issues most of which were just pent up energy due to lack of exercise and proper training. But there was still one thing that completely disrupted our household the dog would just randomly bark at his tail. This could be once a minute or once every thirty seconds or every two minutes he was never at rest when the whole family was home. We were ready to put the dog on medication to help with what we thought was anxiety. So we talked to Dog Watch and they suggested the Big Leash as a training tool. Only using it properly as a training tool to our amazement the undesired behavior was all but gone in a few days. The only wish is that we would have discover what a great tool the big leash is a year sooner!

Thanks Dog Watch for the peace in our house we are much happier pet owners without the barking and yelling.

David & Christina L. – Worthington, Ohio

We met you folks at the Worthington Pet Parade and have the white Dutch Colonial home on the NW corner of the Village Green. You just completed the installation for our beloved Jack Russell terrier, Bandit. The job was professionally done and we move in this Thursday. Kudos to you and your company for a job well done. We would certainly recommend your services to our friends and neighbors. Thanks again.


Cindy C. – Hilliard, Ohio

 The Big Leash Remote Trainer has helped tremendously with our Golden Retreiver’s bad behaviors.  The biggest thing that comes to mind is the "call" command.  She comes when I call her and that is wonderful piece of mind.  We've been going to the dog park on Spindler Road and if she starts to act badly I can call her to come to me.  Oh, and the "leave it"…I "love it".  That has helped with her eating mulch. 

So, kudos to you for not only the fence but also the e-collar.  Every time we go out back, she scans the perimeter of the yard like she's looking for those flags.  I love you guys!

Angie D. – Baltimore, Ohio

Just wanted to write and say how much I loved my indoor fence I had put in. It was the best thing ever. I recommend it to anyone wanting to keep pets off the carpet and areas where you do not want your pet while away from home. The owners were so very, very nice. I can't say enough good. Thanks for the great service. I highly recommend them to all pet owners.


Bobi B. – Marion, Ohio

We love our fence. Love it. We have not picked up a single mess since our Sheppard Berkley, has been able to go outside through her doggie door and be contained all day with your amazing fence. Conway our runaway Pitt bull mix is happy and runs the yard and runs and runs, but not away! They love to play together and it’s amazing how well they already know their boundaries. Thank you!

Carla B. – Dublin, Ohio

The DogWatch works fantastically for our dog as well as our daughter's visiting dog, Gizmo (the little black ornery one) - he knows those boundaries and he never challenges. Thanks so much for getting us all set up here at our new house.


Bobby W. – Westerville, Ohio

Henry would scare us on the leash because he'd pull so hard and begin to choke himself with his collar. We would stop numerous times just to make it stop, so that he wouldn't hurt himself permanently. No matter how often we stopped, he still would continue to fully extend the leash regardless of the discomfort he felt from the collar on his throat. Pat & Emily said that had the quick fix for it, and I must admit...I didn't really think there would be a "quick fix" at all.

I was wrong. The second time I used the side walker, Henry naturally heeled next to my side with no struggle...and absolutely no discomfort. I can't believe how quickly his behavior changed, especially since I never even moved the dial past the "vibrate" setting. Just today, I tried to use his old collar on a walk in uptown Westerville. It was a nice day, and there were a lot of people out walking their dogs. He only pulled away from me once, and from thereafter heeled right next to me. I'd recommend this product to anyone who has a puppy. We give it an A+! Thanks DogWatch!

I just wanted to let you know that your installer did an awesome job getting my fence set up. As any homeowner could imagine, this job could be a complete mess. Your installer did such a neat and clean job with everything. He even has the wires to the box so neatly organized and tacked to the wall the way my OCD loves!

Pebbles is totally safe because of Dog Watch of Columbus! The side of our house is on a very busy street and a walking path is next to our property. Runners, walkers, dogs, even squirrels and rabbits do not tempt her! Thank you Dog Watch of Columbus!


Matt T. – Hilliard, Ohio

When researching companies to install a dog fence for us, we interviewed three other companies outside of Dogwatch. We really liked Pat when we met him, then when he came out to install the fence I could not believe his craftsmanship. He really took his time and did an awesome job. To top it off when we had questions and called the office his wife Emily is just so easy to work with. Thanks again for a great experience.

Ann T. – London, Ohio

I just wanted to tell you that Piper should be your "poster child". She adapted to the fence almost instantly. She loves her new found freedom and I feel very safe letting her have the run of the yard. We are even trying to encourage my father-in-law to put one in and for the record he did put one in too and he loves it.


Sara D. – Hilliard, Ohio

We have a fully fenced backyard so when we adopted Dexter we weren't worried about him getting out. Turns out Mr. Dexter can jump fences! We called DogWatch, got the fence installed and haven’t had a single problem with Dexter leaving the yard since. This a wonderful company and they do wonderful work. We highly recommend them. They are so knowledgeable and Pat was so patient with Dexter who is still a little skittish around strangers. These guys are the ones to call when you need a hidden fence!

Melissa P. – Dublin, Ohio

I just had to write and thank you for your very sweet and surprising note and gesture. After moving into our new home a little over a week ago, I have been literally shocked at how uncaring, unprofessional and frustrating so many companies have been with their service. DogWatch, however, came shining through yet again. It's no wonder to me that your company continues to win so many well deserved awards. Thank you for your continuous and exemplary customer service!


Josh and Alison C. – Hilliard, Ohio

Hi Pat and Emily, just wanted to let you know that changing our "Other System" to the DogWatch System, has been one of the best things we have done for our dogs! No more worrying about Finn running through any longer! It is great, we can't thank you enough!

Wendi B. – Canal Winchester, Ohio

DogWatch of Columbus installed 3 acres of Hidden Fence for us many years ago. The system is awesome! They are super quick in responding when something happens...like when the phone company accidentally cut our line! Only needing to change the batteries twice a year is a super plus for us...especially since we live on a busy street! Our dogs have never once left the Hidden Fence area. This year had DogWatch of Columbus fence off some of the garden area to keep the dogs out and it has worked out perfectly! This is a great family owned business that does a great job and we trust them with keeping our dogs safe every day!! The also sell a great remote trainer that we love!

Melinda D. – Hilliard, Ohio

If you are thinking of installing an underground system, call DogWatch! When we bought our new house over a year ago, we loved everything except that it didn't have a fence to keep our family dog in the yard. We didn't want to spend a lot of money on a traditional fence so we considered an underground system and called DogWatch. They were very professional, always showed up on time, installed the system fast and helped with our training. We have called or emailed with follow up questions and always get a response from the owners, not an automated system or a third party company.

We are so happy with our system! It works, even with our 100 pound Rottie. We didn't have to spend a lot of money or hassle with a traditional fence installation and maintenance. We can enjoy being outside with our kids and dog without worrying that she will wander or get hurt. We are so happy that we called DogWatch and recommend them without hesitation.

Debbie B. – West Jefferson, Ohio

 We have had this product for almost a year and we are looking to get and an additional collar for our newest addition. We will be attending the Home & Garden show 2014 to discuss a new collar. This product beats the other product that we had and the batteries do last. Anytime I have had a question they are always there to answer. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking to keep their fur babies safe!!


Amanda B. – Hilliard, Ohio

I had an excellent experience with Dogwatch Hidden Fences of Columbus. We purchased a remote trainer from them to aide in the training of our dog. They took the time to show us how it worked and made sure we understood how it worked before leaving. The remote trainer has really helped our dog understand boundaries and has been a key factor in keeping him safe. I would recommend Dogwatch for any service that they offer.

Natalie S. – Dublin, Ohio

I've been a Dogwatch client for 9 years. Our dog was easily trained following Pat's guidance and continues to "know her boundaries." It wasn't until this year that I had to be back in touch with Pat and Emily, as our landscaper cut the fence in 2 places. I was expecting this to be more of an ordeal to fix, but the work was done within 24 hours of contacting them. 

In addition, the overall cost of ownership with this system is low. I purchased while they were running a battery special, and haven't needed replacements until this year as well. 

Finally, I feel good about supporting a locally owned family business through my ownership of a Dogwatch system.

Scott W.  – Dublin, Ohio

We had Pat install our hidden fence a short time ago.  Pat took the time to get to know our dog and us.  He was great training our dog on the hidden fence.  The installation is professional and we have had zero issues.  I highly recommend their service and would use them again without question.


Finally, I feel good about supporting a locally owned family business through my ownership of a Dogwatch system.

We want to thank you for helping us reach our goal of letting all 4 of our pups roam freely and safely on our property. With 2 acres of running room and knowing they are safe…everyone is happy.

Jamie D. – Dublin, Ohio

Max is doing so well! He's loving hanging out in the front yard in the evening, watching all of the neighbor's and their kids and pups walk by. He stands there and watches without a leash! Seriously though, this rescue boy was known to pull us all over the place to explore and say hello to everyone/thing personally. He's been quite the observer and actually welcomed two female pit bulls into the yard to meet him on day two.  Thank you!

Erin S. – Hilliard, Ohio

What an amazing Hilliard invisible fence company!!! I had DogWatch of Columbus install our invisible fence for our puppy. I absolutely love it and working with Emily was awesome!! She answered all my many questions and helped me figure it all out with my timid puppy!! We misplaced his collar for the last day and I missed it SO much! Luckily I found it and we are back in business. Highly recommend!
