"We certainly chose the right company to install our invisible fence! Beginning with a phone call on a Saturday in which Gary answered all our questions and addressed our concerns, the fence was installed the following Monday. The Agates, father and son, did a great job. They are knowledgeable, professional, and extremely helpful. We were quite apprehensive about purchasing the underground fence for our Rottweiler pup, but they put our minds at ease, and assured us he would love it❤️. Even though it was just recently completed, I’m sure it’s gonna be just what we need. Don’t hesitate to choose Dog Guard. Thank you guys!!"

"We have not had our fence long, but we are so excited at how much easier our lives will be in the near future. Our oldest dog was consistently wandering out onto the street and we recently rescued a dog that had been caged her whole life. Needless to say the rescue wants to run like crazy. We are still in the training phase now, but very happy with Gary Agate and Dog Guard. Looking forward to a lifetime of freedom for our pets and peace of mind for us! "

"I’ve been wanting to get a dog fence for about 2 years. I have 2 dogs and a very large yard. I’ve contacted other fence companies, but their prices were SO HIGH! My husband found Dog Guard and contacted Gary and gave us a GREAT PRICE. Gary came to our house on time for our installation. He was very professional and answered EVERY question and concern that I had. Installation was quick and was up and running in a couple of hours. He helped me with training tips and walked the fence perimeter with both my dogs. Needless to say, the fence is the BEST purchase we’ve ever made for our dogs. It works fantastic! Our dogs our happier too! They love to be able to run all over the yard and I love knowing they are safe. Our neighbors noticed how great it worked and a few weeks later, they had Gary install one at their home as well. You will not be disappointed in any way. I just wish we would have found Gary and Dog Guard much sooner! "

"Gary and his Father installed a underground fence for us in September. After contacting Dog Guard of PGH Gary reached out to me in less then an hour and was at our house the next day for install. Gary and his Father were very professional and easy to work with. They provided great detailed instructions. They are always available for any questions we have. We would highly recommend Dog Guard of PGH (Gary & his Father) to anyone. "

"From the first initial call to the end project, Gary was prompt, friendly, helpful and worked around my work schedule. Gary loves animals and you can see that with his interaction.Everything he told me from the initial consultation to completion of the project was just spot on. I have two that needed a little more training and correction level, just my dogs nothing to do with Gary. I will highly recommend Gary and his work ethic to anyone, anytime."

Patty G. in Pittsburgh, PA

"We had Gary out to install our fence in May. Our dog is an extremely energetic 1yr. old. We were very fearful of him taking off as we live on a very busy road. Our Dog Guard fence has given us peace of mind and helped our dog learn his boundaries. He has so much more freedom to roam our property he loves it! I highly recommend Dog Guard!"

"Project: Fix an existing Dog Guard electric pet fence. We had an existing Dog Guard Pet Fence that needed fixed. Gary came to our home, troubleshooted to get to the cause of the problem (mother nature), and did not leave until the electric fence was in 100% working condition. It was such a relief to know that our fence was fixed and we could train our golden retriever without hesitation. Gary was friendly and professional. I would recommend him to anyone. "

"Gary was super helpful. He did my 1/4 acre in less then an hour and a half! He was so helpful every single step of the way. Very prompt in returning phone calls and answered any and every question I had without any hesitation! He took his time in conversations prior to the install and the day of he explained everything he was going to and walked me through proper training techniques! So far so good my little girl wants nothing to do with the flags!! Would recommend him to everyone I know !! His prices cannot be beat and the pride he takes in his work and his thoroughness is outstanding!! Thanks again Gary for all of your help!! "

"We had our underground dog fence installed by Big Gary and Little Gary today of Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh. This father and son team did an amazing job installing the fence in a rather wet yard. What little mess they made they promptly cleaned up. In addition they showed us the ‘ins and outs’ of training our Vizsla puppy Gunnar with the collar! They were very professional and on time, we highly recommend them!"

Stephanie R.

"I can’t thank Gary and his Dad enough....from the start they were prompt and courteous, took the time to get our zosha trained on the fencing system even though it was raining. She got the hang of the system in just a few days and our lives are so much easier since we are not worried about her going out on the road. Thank you both again."

Aimee B. in Irwin, PA

"Don’t look any further! Gary is the BEST!!! I did a lot of research and got several quotes for a hidden fence for my beloved fur-babies. I chose Gary (Dog Guard) because from our first conversation, I immediately felt the safety of my dogs and keeping them inside the perimeter of my yard was his top priority. Due to the construction of our new home and due to weather, I had to reschedule multiple times. Gary was kind, accommodating, thorough and very flexible with his schedule. The installation of my fence was fast and Gary was even able to install it up a steep hill in my backyard which I thought was going to be impossible. I have a very energetic Goldendoodle and a very stubborn Beagle/Lab mix and I wasn’t sure how they would do with a hidden fence. Gary trained both my dogs very quickly and before he left he made sure I knew exactly what I needed to do to continue their training. I am so pleased to say neither of my dogs have crossed the property line even one time. I could not be more pleased. Thank you so much Gary!!!! "

-- Aimee B. in Irwin, PA

"We couldn't be more excited about our Dog Guard underground fence. We haven't had it long, so we are still in the training phase. Looking forward to a lifetime of freedom and safety for our dogs as well as peace of mind for us! "

"I would recommend Dog Guard. I have a 5 month old male boxer puppy. He has so much energy he needed to run. I have one acre and had half of the acre ,invisible fence. The team installed the fence during a rain down pour. Dog guard could have reschedule, but due to my active puppy and my urgent, they installed the fence, even with both gentlemen getting socked. It's been a few weeks and both the puppy and the family are doing well. 🐶 "

Dawn A.

"I can't say enough great things about Gary and his father. From the beginning of the installation process to the end Gary assured me what I was asking for could be done and it was!! Did I mention they had to install 15 acres? Yes..they installed 15 acres!! I am the mother to 4 Rottweilers and their safety means everything to me. Gary and his father got in here and had it all completed and set up within a couple hours. I am so thankful and I would highly recommend you check them out first before having anyone else even attempt your fence. Your not going to find better prices or quality anywhere else. "

"We actually were told about Dog Guard from our dog's previous owner, they were able to come out as soon as we got here with a quick installation. Gary was a very personable person I was thankful to have met him and his father. Gary explained everything to me and my husband we were very pleased with our service. Strongly Recommended :)"

"I can't begin to say how great our new dog fence is! I was going crazy trying to put two dogs on separate chains in our yard. Gary and his team put the fence in quickly and professionally. My kids loved helping them put the flags in! In the end they took extra time to make sure we knew how the fence worked and answered all of our questions. Ever since I've been recommending this company to all of our friends!"

"Thanks Gary for coming out so quickly to install my underground fence. I wasn't expecting such a quick response and you exceeded my expectations. The system is very easy to operate and you do a great job setting everything up. I would highly recommend your company to anyone looking to have an underground fence installed. You guys rock!! "

Sarah N. in Wexford, PA

"Gary was very personable from the start. Answered all my questions and returned calls in timely manner. The installation was efficient and the estimated time it took was right on target. He followed up with us the following week to see how it was working. Our dog (a 1 1/2 yr old great dane / boxer) has tons of freedom now to roam our yard, but stays within boundaries and our worry of him running away has pretty much vanished. He even tip toes near the border when his toy goes close to it. So far, it's working just as expected! "

Angela K. in Charleroi, PA

"We had Gary and his dad come out to install all new wire in an 11 year old Dog Guard fence around our yard. They are the best! Great, friendly service and very helpful. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to keep their dog safe and sound and confined to the yard. Wonderful people. Thanks again!"

"I only wish I had done this sooner. It's so GREAT to open the kitchen door and watch my 2 "girls" go outside and not have to worry about them crossing the road or leaving my property. It took all of 10-15 minutes for them to learn the flags were there to keep them inside. The "Garys" both went to work right away and had the fence ready in a few hours. (They were trying to beat the rain and almost did ).They did several acres of fencing for me and although I can't see the girls all the time, I know they are safely within my fencing. I feel like this was a gift to me from myself. Sounds funny but no stress calling or looking for dogs. No more putting on leashes and walking them in rain or snow. The GIRLS are so happy and content knowing they can come and go from the house. I feel this was a GREAT INVESTMENT. THANKS"

Kristin L. in Valencia, PA

"We had an existing electronic fence. Gary came out and ran a new wire for us. They were able to get us into the schedule and did a great job burying the wire given our tricky terrain. Where he was unable to bury the wire, he marked the area and let us know that this could be a weak point in the fence. When our system breaks, we will hire them to put in a Dog Guard System."

-- Kristin L. in Valencia, PA
Colleen M. in Gibsonia, PA

"Noticed a sign in a neighbors yard, and of course the yellow flags. Decided to call that same day. Gary and a co-worker were here within days and installed our underground fence. Great workmanship, very professional and friendly. Simple clear instructions provided for the equipment and training. Easily available for any follow up. Highly recommended!!"

Steve W. in Cranberry Township, PA

"Gary was prompt, friendly and showed genuine concern for the work he was doing for the good of our dog. Everything he told me from initial consultation to completion of the project (which was less than a half day) and to the training of our dog was spot on. The fence installed within 5 days of my first contact. I’d highly recommend Gary and his work to anyone."
