About DogWatch of Columbus
The West Family has proudly served the Columbus area since 1992 as DogWatch of Columbus. We have made it our business to keep your pets safe at home, yet free to run and roam the yard. DogWatch of Columbus is the ONLY hidden fence company in the area with over 20 years of service and experience with the same brand. We are proud to offer lifetime warranties on our equipment and customer service that is second to none. We treat our customers as we want to be treated by people we do business with.
Pat West started servicing and installing DogWatch Hidden Fences for his father, Bill West, while also attending Wright State University. After graduation in 1994, Pat became head of sales while also coaching for the local middle school wrestling team and substitute teaching. In June 2006, Bill retired and Pat took over ownership of DogWatch of Columbus with his wife Emily. Emily also graduated from Wright State University, received her CPA in 2004, and has been involved with DogWatch of Columbus since 2002.
Pat and Emily are residents of Hilliard and have two girls, Maggie and Genevieve, and one son Benjamin Patrick. We can’t forget our beloved four-legged pal, Potter, a black and silver Miniature Schnauzer. The whole family is happily involved with DogWatch as you may hear on the phone or encounter while visiting our office.
The ability to stay in constant contact with our customers is a very high priority for us. Because of this, DogWatch of Columbus is very active in the social media world. You will find us active on Facebook (www.facebook.com/dogwatchofcolumbus), Twitter (@dogwatchohio), Linked In (Emily West and Pat West), and You Tube (www.youtube.com/dogwatchofcolumbus). Please check us out and join in the fun by fanning, following, linking or viewing. We also maintain a blog through our website, that is targeted at dog owners and dog lovers in general. With 20 years experience, we’ve gathered quite a knowledge base that we enjoy sharing. You can also sign up for our newsletter via our website to keep up to date with our latest equipment, special offers, contests, events, featured rescue dogs, and relevant monthly dog related topics.
Pat and Emily have presented, mentored, and hosted several events for DogWatch dealers on the local, national and worldwide scale. Please go to our awards and achievements page for a more detailed explanation of what we have accomplished. We have also had the pleasure of making several instructional videos to be viewed by both customer and dealer alike.
DogWatch of Columbus has received several awards, including many sales achievements, website designs, and most recently DogWatch "Dealer of the Year". Locally, we have received the "Super Service" award from Angie's List for the last several years consecutively.
DogWatch of Columbus is a proud member of the Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce, accredited associates of the Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio, and are very happy to be rated on Angie’s List. Pat and Emily have volunteered at Capital Area Humane Society and have supported several local events to help raise money for rescue groups, dog parks, Humane Societies, cancer research and many other causes. If you’re looking for a company that uses ticket numbers and where you’ll never talk to the same person twice, we’re not the company for you. But if you’re looking for personalized and timely service, superior products, and honest business practices, give us a try - you won’t be disappointed.
