Travis C. | Toronto, OH

“Very professional. They worked great with our 2 dogs. Did a very good job installing the fence and I highly recommend them for anyone looking to keep their dog or dogs in the yard.”

Amy P. |

“I highly recommend! The job was handled so quickly and Gary was also able to train my dog Primrose within 5 minutes. He was also available to answer website questions when I wanted to order another receiver collar online for my other dog (who I never thought would run away; she did). We called other companies online, but he topped them. Well done Dog Guard! I give a 5 out of 5!”

Highly recommend this company for anyone looking to protect their pups. Fast and professional service and installation. Their training is spot on. Just be sure to repeat on leash everyday for at least a week. Amazingly they are still there for you after the install ❤️

Couldn’t be happier with the product and especially the quick service that Dog Guard provided. So nice not to have to worry about the safety of my dog every time he goes outdoors. They worked with me to get the fence exactly where I wanted it to go even though it was not the easiest route. Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking to invest in protecting their pets!

I highly recommend Dog Guard Pittsburgh!!! They could not have been more professional or accommodating. I originally reached out to just get a quote and had an appointment by the end of the day!! The install team were so friendly and knowledgeable and now Riot has more freedom and we have more peace of mind!

I had my Dog Guard installed and couldn’t be more pleased. First, the installers were exceptional and really helped us get started with the training. They accommodated my requests and were very professional. Dog Guard offers better pricing, customer service, and a better guarantee than other companies I found. I highly recommend them.

I spoke to Gary about installing an electric dog fence around my property to help keep my dog safe. Gary was easy to talk to, polite, professional and eased all that concerns. He was able to get me on the schedule quickly and and no time at all my electric dog fence was installed for my two dogs that had been chasing deer and getting out of the yard previously. Installation was quick, clean, and professional You could almost not even tell they were there! Dog guard Pittsburgh took me through all the training and brought me up to date on what was my responsibility and what their responsibilities were. So far it's been a week my dogs I've tested the system but have not left the yard! We are so excited and look forward to when we can spend time outside with the dogs off the leash safely! Thanks Gary and Pittsburgh Dog Guard!

I recently purchased a house that had a Dog Guard system which didn’t function. I called and they sent a technician next day to fix it. They also gave me a tutorial and helped me learn to train my dog. Great experience!

They were really great to work with & very willing to answer all our questions. The owner even took time out of his vacation to talk with me & explain the process answer the questions I had. Install went well too! Great company & very helpful! (Also, a better price than the competitor!)

Let me just say that I did not think this fence was going to work for our stubborn dogs. (I have a German shepherd and a Golden Retriever.) We are on our 4th week and it’s working!!! Gary the owner is great and very helpful. They scheduled me within a week and had the fence installed in less than an hour. I highly recommend Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh!

I just had my fence placed. Mike and Chuck were wonderful… kind to me and my puppies. They were very professional with installing the fence and then giving me instructions. Chuck made sure I understood everything. Prior to the installation talking with Gary Agate and Suzanne was excellent. They both were very helpful and easy to talk too

The electric fence has been a game changer for our family. It gives our puppy the freedom she desires and it makes my life so much easier. She is happy to come in and out as she pleases. Training was so much easier than I was anticipating. Very thankful to Dog Guard..

We received a call the very next day we inquired and had an appointment for install within the same week. The workers were very cooperative, helpful, and did what was asked of them. Our pooch adjusted well and we now have peace of mind 24/7. We highly recommend this company and are very appreciative of the service and system we have now thanks for them!

Gary and his crew are great people, and most of all honest. A quality that’s hard to find in today’s society. They conduct themselves professionally, and know what they are doing. I have 7 dogs so an underground fence is a necessity for us. Dog guard is gives you a 15 year warranty and they are great people to deal with. Thank you guys!

August 26, 2021

We have had Dog Guard for a few months. My goal is to give an honest review. The good, bad and ugly, if you will! Gary was super helpful with getting us scheduled. The closing of our house kept moving around and I feel like I was calling constantly trying to move the day around. He was very patient with the process. The day they were set to arrive, even though they had a long traveling time to get to us, they were there bright, early and prompt! They got to work almost immediately and quickly realized that when I said we had some challenging terrain, I was not kidding. Even they were amazed at what they had gotten themselves into! They marched up and down a mountain side, climbing downed trees (a lot of them) and steep, muddy drop offs. To add salt to the wounds (literally, as one of their guys ended up injured) it was raining the whole time. All three gentleman were friendly and kept a pleasant demeanor despite their unexpected workout. I would even venture to say they were playfully bantering with one another just before leaving. It was obvious that they were not only coworkers, but friends and worked well together. Perhaps their playfulness with one another was a celebration that they had survived! We had tried to get an invisible fence brand fence since it is what we had used in the past. With the layout of our property, the dogs were going to have to wear two collars. Invisible fence didn’t want to run a wire through the terrain, yet Gary’s guys walked it all with their heavy roll of wire! Invisible fence wanted us to wire the front yard and use a GPS collar in the backyard. Who wants their animals to wear two correction collars? Gary ordered us large gauge wire and warned that with falling trees or even animals, we may end up with a break where the wire could not be buried. They wrapped the wire in pvc in order to make it across the stream bed, tacked it to the backside of a downed tree for protection, and really worked hard to prevent issues in the future. Again, I don’t believe they had any idea what they were getting into at our house! He explained how to fix the line and left us extra supplies incase a break happens, to avoid having to make a maintenance call. So far, no breaks! We had two dogs on the property while Gary was here but knew we were going to be getting some puppies. We took 3 collars when he left. We now have 4 dogs on the property. My only concern is that I was having a hard time making a connection with his office in order to order another collar. Since the puppies are still too young for the collars anyhow, I gave up. I will try another day. I have noticed that the corporate site allows collars to be purchased online. Since they are the same price either way, I will probably take that route. Everyone always wants to know the price. 10 years ago we had an invisible fence installed by invisible fence brand at our previous home. It was 1/2 acre of flat yard and we had 2 collars. Dog guard installed our new fence around 10 difficult acres and gave us 3 collars. The Dog guard fence, with all the extra acres, 10 years of inflation, AND with an extra collar, only cost approx $200 more. So far we have not had a single escape, nor do I think either of our animals would try it. The dogs stop for deer, rabbits, or the random person out hiking on the road out front. I look forward to the puppies getting large enough to wear a collar so we can have the same peace of mind with them! Thank you, Dog Guard, Gary, and your poor guys whom had the joys of walking our woods! I hope that we never move again! Moving is a very stressful process! If we ever do, I know which company I am calling to install our new fence!

From start to finish, Gary and his team made the DogGuard fence and system installation seamless. They answered all of our questions before they arrived and were very diligent and focused on the physical installation and training of our puppy. If I could redo this process, I wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks DogGuard of Greater Pittsburgh.

We are so pleased with the service and professionalism of Gary and his team! Before installation, the office staff was always courteous and informative. Gary and the installation team worked through rough terrain and installed the fencing on seven acres of our property so our Anatolian Sheperds could have more freedom. The training was easy and Gary walked me through the process so I could reinforce positive behaviors. I highly recommend Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh. They are truly exceptional! Nala & Freya thank you!

Gary's crew (Chuck) provided an out-of-sight electric fence. They were very professional and provided a thorough explanation for training our dogs. They took the time to work with us and the entire process was only 2 hours. They have the best prices around. I would recommend them to everyone. Check them out before going with another company. I don't think anyone else can match their prices.

Had Dog Guard installed, dog ran through the fence a number of times. Contacted Dog Guard and advice was received for adjustment of the garage unit. This procedure didn’t work, however Dog Guard sent crew to inspect installation and settings on the garage unit. Adjustments were made and now the fence works as advertised. Happy with the installation, customer service and value. I recommend Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh.

May 28, 2021

We were pleased with the responsiveness of this company. We have a 1/2 acre yard and they were done within 2 hours. I was at work during the install but my husband called me on speaker and they answered all of my questions. We’re in the training phase with our dogs but they are responding so good and are happy to move about their space freely and unchained!

Lori B. |

May 20, 2021

Gary and Dog Guard came highly recommended by my friends! I could not agree more! Not only was Gary super quick with providing complete details, pricing, and scheduling installation, but he and his entire staff were super! The dog training was reviewed and complete instructions were provided. Seems so easy, my only question would be “why did I not do this sooner?!” Highly recommend! Great job!

Gary and his team are professional and fast with their installations. We have a Great Pyrenees and a Min Pin mix that are both as stubborn as the day is long, and they have both taken to the Dog Guard underground fence like champs! It keeps our dogs safe in our yard, even when there are exciting things outside of the fence like dog friends and squirrels. Thank you for helping our pups enjoy their time outdoors safely!!

Kayla S. | Cowansville, PA

May 10, 2021

I did my research and shopped around and this was the best company for us. It is extremely important for us that our dogs are safe and well taken care of and we are thankful that dog guard has allowed us the freedom to let the dogs enjoy more time in the yard! Highly recommend and will continue to recommend to all of my puppy clients.

We are so glad we had Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh install a out-of-sight electronic dog fence 4/16/2021! Gary helped us decide where to install the fence on or property perimeter, then they went to work. Thirty minutes later the fence was installed, flags were set and there was almost no disruption to our lawn! The team adjusted the power and fitted Nina, our Boston Terrier, and our daughters much larger dog with collars. Then Gary began training Nina to learn the ‘boundaries’ of our property and showed us how to continue the training. He did the same with our daughter and her dog; he emphasized that both dogs were trained about 65%, and that the more we trained our dogs, the quicker they would be 100% trained. Gary explained how the panel they installed worked and placed a ‘do not dig’ sign in our shrub bed, to remind us where an underground line was located. We trained Nina about 4 times/day, and she quickly learned her boundaries. Just 3 days after the fence was installed, Nina has been enjoying her new freedom without a leash! Before the fence was installed, Nina would run to other dogs or people walking on the road if she had the opportunity; now she watches them, but won’t cross the installed line. It is so much fun to play with Nina outside, without a leash!

I was quite skeptical at first given my pups reactive nature. Gary was fantastic and patient! All staff were wonderful and, despite my concerns, my dog did great on day 1 and is has been enjoying it since. Best investment we’ve made. LOVE IT and definitely recommend.

I have waited a few months to publish my review because I wanted to make sure it was worth it. Well I can tell you that IT WAS THE BEST MONEY WE EVER SPENT!! This system is life changing for everyone!! I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND this system from this company!! We have referred three of our friend and will continue to refer friends and family!!

After Day 1 my dogs know what those flags mean. We can not wait for them to be fully trained and run the whole yard. Gary and his staff were fast, Efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend this company.

April 11, 2021

This has been the best decision for us! Dog Guard has changed our life here with Benny having the freedom to play and run with the kids! The customer service was so fast! I got a call within hours and the fence was installed within days! Thank you Gary, Chuck, and Mike!!

We are very happy with the quick installation and quality of work. Gary was able to come out 2 days after we inquired about the fence to install it for us. The installation only took about an hour and you couldn't even tell anyone disturbed the property. Our dog will be a very happy guy to roam safely in our yard thanks to the Dog Guard!

Thank you, Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh! Our dog will be much safer in our yard with the new fence and we have more peace of mind while he’s out there. The team at Dog Guard of Greater Pgh was helpful, friendly, and responsive from the first phone call all the way to the installation and training. We are extremely pleased and I’d highly recommend using them if you are in need for your puppy!

Meg L. |

April 6, 2021

So grateful to have the peace of mind with our dogs. Dog Guard made sure the dogs understood the concept of the fence before leaving and gave us all the recommendations to make it a successful and happy transition. The fence has super adjustable settings so we can accommodate whatever sizes and kinds of dogs we’ll have over the years. Grateful to be able to play fetch without worry that a passing bunny or bird will cause my dogs to stray from the yard.

I just had them install an out of sight fence today. They showed up 20mins before our appointment went over everything with me. The owner marked out the property with me and then they finished the install and training in about an hour! The customer service was amazing from the first call to make the appointment all the way up to the install and after. One of the biggest sellers for me is they are a local father and son owned business. If you are in the need for an out of sight/electric fence I would highly recommend.

Edward O. |

April 1, 2021

Gary and his crew came out 2 days ago and did an absolutely wonderful job. They are courteous, professional and very easy to talk to. They spent about 30 minutes with my lab Baloo and my French Bulldog Sully training them on the system. It didn't take them long at all to get the whole point of this system and 2 days later they are roaming my property with freedom. I would recommend to anyone looking into a fencing containment system.

March 29, 2021

It's been two weeks since they installed our invisible fence and so far it's been slow going but going. Price was reasonable, they where able to come out quickly, and where very friendly and professional. We wanted our dog to only be able to be in the back yard and they where able to find a way to close the loop without allowing him to go between the front and back yard by "pinching" the sides of the yard. He can be in the front or in the back but he cannot travel between the too. My dog can be finicky as he is a rescue and I was nervous about the training portion of install but he worked really well with them. My dog is also very easily scared so if your dog is easily scared and you don't want to put the work into training them and making them feel comfortable, don't get an electric fence. My dog was so afraid of the flags that he refused to walk on the leash so I had to pick his front paws up and make him walk the boarder on his hind legs. At first, he was too nervous to play but by continuing to work with him, he has been playing more and learning the boarder a little better. If he gets to close while playing and does get shocked, he needs encouragement to keep playing. He still will not go outside without one of us present, but he has gone from needing to pull him out to following you out. If you have a dog who is very attached to you, like mine, they will take a shock rather then be separated from you if you go outside of the fence. I was in the front yard and he was in the back and he ran through the above mentioned "pinched" portion to the front so he could be with me. Long story short, happy with the fence and would defiantly recommend, just make sure you're willing to put the work in.

Highly recommend Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh! The crew was great even with the cold and snow. Very quick to install and offered to come verify the install once the snow melts. Took time to ensure we were well trained on the use of the fence. Can’t wait for summer to get here.

December 10, 2020

I cannot say enough about the Dog Guard product and customer service! I was “on the fence” about getting an electric fence since we live on a main road. However, it would have been very difficult and expensive to install a regular fence due to the shape of our yard. When I first called, I was given an estimate and was told that their team could be out in 3 days to install. The turn around time in and of itself was great. When Gary’s team came out to install, they were finished before I knew it. I was expecting the install to take a lot longer, but that was not the case. At the time of install, my husband was not home. After install and once my husband returned, he realized that it would be more beneficial for the fence to expand beyond where it was placed initially in a particular area of the yard. I told him I wasn’t sure that it was possible. But, to my surprise, when I called Dog Guard back, Gary said he could come back out the following week to take a look at what my husband was wanting to change. Gary did not disappoint. He showed up the following week and met with my husband to discuss the small change. Shortly after, he got to work and made the change in no time. Again, the customer service is amazing! As far as our dog, Gunner, he is a 17 month old chocolate labrador. He has done really well with obeying the boundaries of the fence. In fact, just the other day, my husband walked down to the main road to greet a neighbor and talk with him. I was anxiously waiting to see what Gunner would do. Gunner knew not to cross the line on the driveway and patiently waited until my husband came back up to the house.

November 30, 2020

Dog Guard was so simple. We were given a quote over the phone on the first contact, they arrived on time, took no time to lay the fence and trained our dog all in the same visit. It was WAY more simple than we ever imagined. I give my highest recommendation to Dog Guard. It was a wonderful experience!

Debbie C. |

November 19, 2020

Installed invisible fence for my dogs. Contacted them and were out to install within a week. A huge plus was a year with no financing and an online estimate. Very professional. Installation only took 2 hours max. Still a learning curve and some getting use to but working great so far.

Jon L. |

November 17, 2020

I hired Dog Guard to install an invisible fence for our 55-lb lab mix. Gary and the crew were incredible and had our whole fence installed (about 6,000 sq ft) in under an hour. They were super knowledgeable, friendly and courteous, and gave us all inclusive pricing including all equipment and even did an initial training with our pup for us. Could not recommend them enough!

Carrie H. |

We have had our System for a little over a year and we love it. While our Kayce is no longer a pup and loves to chase any animal that comes into our yard, she never goes past her boundaries. We love having the freedom and comfort of leaving her outside and knowing she will not wonder.

Marisa F. |

October 5, 2020

We’ve had a great experience so far with our invisible fence! Our dogs have had no issues at all trying to leave the yard since we had it put in in August! The two guys who installed the fence were extremely friend and knowledgeable! We would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

Shanna L. R. |

Gary was great from the moment I called and inquired about the fencing system. He answered all of my questions on the phone. There was not a need to come to my dining room table and give me a powerpoint SALES presentation like the big name in the industry did. I felt no sales pressure with Gary. He laid out the facts and gave me transparent pricing. He was accommodating to my schedule for installation. The day after installation, I called him back and asked if can adjust the boundary. He did it the very next day without any questions. I recommend Gary and Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh!

Jim E. |

Recently had them install an electric dog fence. They were professional, friendly, efficient, and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their services to any dog owner looking for a similar product. Thanks for keeping my pup secure!

Chelsea M. |

September 1, 2020

Back in May 2020 we decided to get a fence and at first our dogs weren’t responding well to it. So we contacted Gary and his team again for advice on what to do. Gary came out to our house again looked over the equipment and said give it another month and if we weren’t happy with it they would remove it. So we gave it more time and worked with our six dogs of all different sizes and breeds. Now we love our fence and are so pleased with the professionalism that this company treated us with. Thank you Gary and team!!!

Kelli C. |

August 28, 2020

We decided to get another dog when we moved into our new home! I called Dog Guard and they came out the next day and installed an invisible fence! They were very knowledgeable and had great prices. I highly recommend them if you are in the Pittsburgh area and wanting an invisible fence!

Tara R. |

August 25, 2020

I can’t get over how great the Dog Guard system has worked for my pups. The installation and training was super quick and efficient even in the summer heat. I really appreciate that we sat down and they explained every little detail about what to expect, maintenance, collars, etc. I have a German Wirehair Pointer who is super energetic and loves fetch as well as a Beagle who is trained to hunt rabbits. Needless to say I was nervous to see if the fence would truly keep the dogs in or would the “break through” either chasing a ball or rabbit. The fence system has absolutely been nothing but fantastic, not once have the dogs broke through the fence, even while chasing out some birds and bunnies. Now with the fence for almost two months the dogs have the best time in the yard while I have the peace of mind that they won’t take a run into the woods. I would absolutely recommend Dog Guard to anyone that has a big yard and wants to give their dogs room to run. Couldn’t be happier.

I cannot even begin to explain the impact that this company has made on our lives. First, the absolutely incredible professionalism and kindness that the team projected was so reassuring. My two boys now have freedom! My heart feels so warm to know they are safe and having the time of their lives. Thank you so much for making everything so easy! You all have my heart!

We had a great experience with Dog Guard. Very professional, super friendly, and an over all great experience. We got the fence installed before our puppy came home and were eager to try it when he got to the size that he needed to be to begin training. We followed the simple instructions give by Dog Guard and our black lab was quickly trained. We love being able to let him outside with out having to chain him up and give him free roam of our yard. The kids love it to because they have to freedom to run around and play fetch with him! All and all Dog Guard has been a great experience for us and we would recommend them to anyone!

We called Gary on Tuesday & he was at our home on Wednesday morning installing our fence. Gary took the time to teach us how to train our dogs properly. Our dogs have done great with the underground fence so far! We're so happy we went with Gary & Dog Guard!

Gary and his helper outfitted my yard with a Dog Guard system in less than 1 1/2 hours, he helped me start the training with both of my dogs and even helped me remove a stubborn bush from my yard. I am excited to teach my pets and look forward to allowing them the freedom and safety to run around the whole yard. Thank you Gary! Its been over two years since I had my system installed. Definitely worth the investment. My dogs have never left the yard, not even when taunted by squirrels.

Our very cute yet busy Wheaten terrier-Tiger- is 5 months old and in one day is already understanding his boundaries!!! These guys were amazing!! Quick, efficient and surely a pleasure to have at our home for the morning!! We highly recommend their expertise, as our yard is smaller but tricky and they gave us the best plan to keep Tiger safe! Now the idea of enjoying outside with our little guy is a reality!! A great way to head into the warmer months! Thanks guys! You are the best!!

The fence is Awesome and the customer service is top notch!! I have a Great Dane and a French Bulldog so if you're wondering what size dog this fence will work with, the answer is ANY SIZE! One day of training and neither of my dogs will go anywhere near the fence line! I tried the collar on myself and it's barely a little tingle, it WON'T hurt your dog! A few months after having my fence installed I decided that I wanted to expand it to give my dogs a little more room.....Gary and his crew came out and extended my fence up and down hills, through some wooded areas, and over some rough terrain, no questions asked! The price was great too! Great investment in the safety of your dogs! I couldn't be happier with the product AND the service! Highly recommend!!

Quick, friendly, very informative of everything (I asked a lot of questions, being nervous about the fence..). I am sooo excited and confident the fence is going to do wonders for us and our dog, Kenzi. Being 21 weeks pregnant I have a lot of stress going on and worries about everything and I can honestly say after just the first training today and seeing my dog with and around the fence... I AM NOT WORRIED or thinking about my dog being in any harm or getting out of our yard. Thank you again Gary and Chuck! :)

After much research we decided on Dog Guard of Greater Pittsburgh and the Dog Guard system. We contacted Gary and he was able to give us a great price and schedule us for installation within 5 days. On the day of installation we received a phone call about 30 minutes prior to our scheduled time to advise us that he was caught in traffic and would be about 30 minutes late. We were impressed. The area is about 1.5 acres and installation took about 1 hour and was perfect. The initial training (actually training us on how to train our pooch, Bailey) was well done and left us without any questions or concerns. Bailey has caught on to the dangers of the yellow flags quite easily and will soon be able to enjoy a great romp in the yard without that darn leash. Gary and his team did an excellent job and we strongly recommend them to anyone in need of a safe environment for their furry family members.

Kate P. | Bethel Park, PA

Tonilyn J. | Rosslyn Farms, PA

February 11, 2019

When we moved into our home, we were excited for the very large yard. We knew our dogs would enjoy having so much space, but we would need to keep them safe. Before purchasing an in-ground fencing system from Dog Guard, we considered Invisible Fence. Their estimated cost was extremely high. We contacted Gary from Dog Guard, and he was able to provide an estimate over the phone, and his cost was less than half of Invisible Fence! The installation was fast and our dogs got the hang of things almost immediately. It was such a great experience, I don't know why anyone would pay twice as much for the exact same product! I would recommend this company over and over again for anyone wanting to protect their dogs without breaking the bank. Now, to fully appreciate how well this system works, sit back for a story that will surely convince you of this glorious victory. (This is a long one, so please enjoy the colorful imagery.) We have three playful pups in our household. Cheyenne is the senior, a Catahoula with a high prey drive. Even though she is getting grey, she reigns over the yard with a sharp eye and allows no unwelcomed guests into her palace. Jackson is tiny but fierce, an adult Schnoodle with a mighty bark and breath to make his enemy's eyes water. Virginia (Ginny) is a puppy, but this gentle giant towers over her siblings as she takes after the Bernese Mountain Dog side of her Bernedoodle heritage. These three are very good dogs, but they are wild as hell. Inside the house, they will sit, lay down, and stay like Dog-Olympic level professionals. They will obey commands like we shipped them off to boarding school for training. However, the very moment that the door opens and they get outdoors, their wild instincts are unleashed and it's every man for himself. Before Gary installed Dog Guard, the three would immediately rush past the edges of the yard in three different directions. Cheyenne would chase little critters clear out of the yard and disappear somewhere beyond our view. Ginny would eagerly investigate the world around her, flopping and rolling and barking and generally causing a commotion. Jackson would test the limits, running to a neighbor's yard to deliver a fresh, hot creation in his favorite spots: doorsteps. Don't worry. It was usually never the same neighbors' homes. He was inclined to spread the love and christen the doorsteps of ALL of our neighbors. Our new neighbors absolutely LOVED us! Gary and his assistant came just in time to prevent petitions to kick us out of the community. That fence went in and those dogs learned that leaving the yard was just not an option. Gary walked us through introducing each dog to the system, and they were trained individually. They quickly understood that there was now a barrier that they could not cross, and the days of chasing down creatures, playing fun games of I-am-pretending-I-can't-hear-you, and leaving steaming piles of ungodliness all over the neighborhood were over! Success! I could almost hear the cries of joy from the entire community. The three menaces to society would be contained to our yard now! I'm surprised they didn't throw us a parade! Since then, we have had absolutely ZERO instances of escape. Our dogs still bound outside like they are about to take on the enemies of their fathers, but now they just play or roll around in gifts that the deer leave behind. I can let them roam around the yard out of sight, too, because I know they will be safe, and that our lovely neighbors won't be bothered by them. If you have read this entire testimonial, the choice is pretty clear: spend a fortune somewhere else, go with the affordable option, or just forget both and wait until your neighbors rise up in mutiny. The only real choice is Dog Guard. You'll be happy, and your dog will be, too.

I had this fence installed for my two Golden Retrievers who liked to run. After the install Gary had each dog come to the flag's, the training was amazing. Golden's are very intelligent, and they will not go near the fence and stay within the boundary. Gary was great, personable and professional. I recommend this company to anyone who loves there dog. He went out of his way for me, and drove an hour and a half to do the install.

Dog Guard is absolutely one of the best purchases I have made for my dog! I looked into Dog Guard for my Shiba Inu because this breed is a "runner" by nature. I needed to keep him safe while giving him a large space for running freedom. I have had the product for 7 months and my family and Shiba are very pleased with the product. In order to write an honest review, I purposely waited to rate the product until I watched how my dog really adjusted to the boundaries. Our dog is safe in our yard and can enjoy running, playing, and being outside. This product has made the biggest difference in his and our lives. Not only is the produce great, the service was topnotch! Installation was fast and professional. Gary was knowledgable about the product and able to answer all of my questions. Great service and a great product! I recommend Dog Guard to anyone thinking about their dog's outside safety and freedom! It is an amazing product.

As a veterinarian I know how important it is to keep your pets at home in their own yard to prevent injuries. I LOVE my invisible dog fence from Dog Guard. I have two rambunctious large breed dogs and with the dog fence I am confident that they will stay in their own yard. Before installing the dog fence our Dalmatian ran out the garage door as we were moving into our new home. Luckily he ran into the garage of a neighbor down the road and we were able to get him back home without incident, not all dogs are that lucky. He again ran out of the garage door yesterday when I came home from work. This time he turned around as soon as he heard the beep of his collar. I have peace of mind knowing that my dogs not going to be hit by a car or get into a dog fight since they are confined to their own property. The fence is safe, reliable, and easy to use. Training was quick and pain-free. Once trained the system gives the dogs a warning beep if they get too close- as soon as they hear the beep they stop or turn around. This is truly a wonderful tool in keeping your pets safe. Dog Guard has also been great to work with from installation to maintaining the system.

October 17, 2018

First off, I would like to say that i have been wanting and NEEDING to consider a correction fence for quite some time, but after calling invisible fence and being quoted over 5000.00 I was a bit deterred.. I found dog guard just randomly googling other options on the web. So I took a chance and called for a quote. And I'm SO GLAD I DID. Heidi called me back within one hour, helped me figure out the financing part, I was quoted only 2000.00 TOTAL FOR 3 DOGS and Gary and Christian were at my home 2 days later. My yard proved to be a tricky affair...hills, rocks..hidden poison ivy and crazy boundary lines. However, Gary and Christian were able to provide me with a fantastic experience within a few hours. Friendly, honest and quite the characters, it was truly a great experience. When the initial training occurred, they had me bring my dogs out one by one and on the first correction with each dog, it was as if magic took over the yard. I have 3 pit bulls, one being a running terror weighing well over 90 lbs refused to even go near the second flag after the initial training moment. They literally layed by my feet waiting for my command. My 6 month old puppy as well which is unheard of... I have never been so humbled by a regular guy who was personable and friendly and just all around a nice guy.. who knew his stuff and was happy to explain things thoroughly. Since they have gone...my hellion runners have tested the boundaries only a small amount of times and they are listening to my commands like new dogs. I no longer have to worry about the judgment of pitbulls by fellow people down the street as my dogs are SAFE ON MY PROPERTY ONLY!! I am in awe. I am so grateful to be able to sit on my porch with my 3 dogs and have people and other dogs walk by and not have to worry. It was truly a blessing that I came across DOG GUARD and didnt have to spend the 5 grand PLUS invisible fence tried to charge me. I walked away with a deal..a piece of mind..happy dogs and Gary stopping back for many steaks and hamburgers at our next cookout!!!! Haha! We will be happy to cook for him forever for helping us contain our furbabies in our cattywampus yard. Thank you so much DOG GUARD. In just 48 hours our lives have changed. I thank God you were sent to us. I would recommend to everyone who ever felt it was hopeless to have a safe and happy life with 3 pitbulls and the public. Much appreciation and love! Very Sincerely, Dawn Pearson, Maximus, Jeff and Coco Beware

The day after it was installed we had 5 days of torrential rains so Zoey (6 years) and Bella (5 months) basically only had the training from Gary. After the rains stopped, we took them around to the flags to reinforce what Gary had taught them and they "remembered". It was amazing. Just yesterday Zoey ran and barked at another neighborhood dog, but DID NOT go "through" the fence. It's even sort of funny when Bella gets close to the "fence", sometimes she just sits in that awkward puppy way they do things. It's good to know, living on a busy road, that my furbabies are safe. I <3 the freedom of letting them out and not getting tangled in their leashes and it's to much run watching them run and play.

I’d like to pass along how pleased I am with “Dog Guard” of Pittsburgh. Gary responded almost immediately to our initial phone inquiry, and had our fence installed very quickly. His explanation and instruction were clear and thorough. He is very professional and easy to work with. After the initial installation, when I requested an adjustment be made, he came back and made sure we were pleased and satisfied. I recommend Gary and Dog Guard of Pittsburgh.

Gary and his team were wonderful to work with. Install was simple and easy, pricing straightforward and honest, easy financing with a local partner. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an underground pet fence solution without overpaying for a certain name brand. Our 1 year old Viszla puppy is doing great!

Dog Guard did an outstanding job with the installation and training. The follow up was prompt and they even came back after our son cut a wire pulling out a root. Very satisfied and would definitely recommend.

Gary and his helper were very fast, professional and kind. They have an excellent product and know it inside and out. Gary knows dogs!!! I would highly recommend him. His big competitor in my area wouldn’t even call me back. You won’t be sorry. The product works perfectly!!!

They were quick and reliable. They came out to install the in ground wiring. They were on time and very quick!

Beth B. | Evans City, PA

August 10, 2018

When Gary came and installed the in ground fence only one of my dogs was old enough for the fence, because I have a puppy. I still thought this was the best purchase my husband and I have ever made. Not having to worry about where our little girl is every minute she is outside is such a stress reliever. But now that the puppy is old enough to wear his collar it is an even better investment (if that can even be) since he is our little explorer. Gary has been so patient with me because I’ve had a lot of questions do to having this puppy who was way too young when Gary first came. He was also very professional during the installation. The fence was in the ground in no time and my oldest dog was trained in less than 10 minutes! Again, the best investment ever.

We had our fence installed in August and it has been wonderful. We have 2 dogs, a pit bull and a medium size mixed breed. It keeps them both in the yard even when the neighbors are walking their dogs or their favorite mail lady comes over to see them. Gary and his father were great to deal with and even helped my husband pull out a large weed before they left. I’m glad I decided to pay the extra for this system instead of a self install box one from the store.

Gary was awesome! Our 2 dogs were acclimated to their new fence in no time! He was cheaper than the competitors, but the product and customer service were top notch. If you are thinking about getting a fence, CALL THEM!!!

Best investment I’ve ever made (aside from the dog himself). Didn’t think it would keep my Doberman in my yard but it works wonders so he can get daily exercise. Gary came back to my house to make the proper adjustments when I wasn’t initially satisfied but we love it now!

We love our new underground fence! We have two active dogs and they learned their boundary really quick. They love being able to roam the property without being tethered up on a long lead! We moved into a new house and were worried that this would be stressful for the dogs, but they are happier than ever and the underground fence has actually made everything less stressful as we are able to let them play in the yard. Gary was great and did an awesome job with installation, which didn't even take two hours! Highly recommended.

Sue A. H. | Slippery Rock, PA

Gary and his team were on time and professional. Our yard appeared untouched after they were done. They were even able to go through the seam of our driveway. We have a busy street behind our home so this was a must for us. The safety it offers our dog is priceless.

Cathy M. | Mount Morris, PA

June 18, 2018

I couldn't be happier with my underground fence. I have three dogs, it is not only great for me but they love it too. No leashes, more freedom and the ability to do their business at there own pace without being rushed. Their safety was important to me and this helped a lot. The dog guard staff was courtesy, so understanding and great at their job. From the receptionist to the installers. They were efficient, helpful and most of all affordable. I know my family appreciated it and we give them 2 paws up. Highly recommended.

Despite a torrential rain, Gary and his assistant were able to install the fencing and controls in a little less than two hours. The area was approximately two acres and was competed at a reasonable price. My Border Collie puppy learned almost immediately and we have had no problem over the four months of use. Has made life easier for all of us. One of my better investments.

Rhonda Y. | Monaca, PA

June 7, 2018

Gary and his helper outfitted my yard with a Dog Guard system in less than 1 1/2 hours, he helped me start the training with both of my dogs and even helped me remove a stubborn bush from my yard. I am excited to teach my pets and look forward to allowing them the freedom and safety to run around the whole yard. Thank you Gary!

Working with Gary and his team could not be easier. He was knowledgeable, on-time and thorough during the install. He asked questions when necessary to make sure he was in line with what we planned, and he did a great job of cleaning up after. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking an electric fence.

Dog Guard is five stars!! It was the best option for our dogs, giving us peace of mind. It was a pleasure to work with Gary! He was super friendly, professional and offered quick installation of the fence. We have been completely satisfied with this product for over five months and continue to be happy with our decision to install Dog Guard. We had a question a few months ago and received great service and fantastic support from Gary. We highly recommend his services to anyone who wants to keep their dogs safe and happy!

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. 🐶

We had our 4 acres fenced last week to keep the chocolate labs from wandering. Gary and crew came over and walked the property with us to make sure we gave the pups max running room. He was able to follow the property line even through heavy, thick weeds and brush. We did a test run after, which I tested on myself first! It felt like one of those hand buzzers. After that I was comfortable to put it on my pups. The test run went great and we no longer loose our wanderers. Gary also took time to show us how the control box works and how to adjust strength and radius if needed. We are very please with his work. Thanks Gary!

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 !!

William S. | Carnegie, PA

March 22, 2018

Highly recommend. Fast, clean and extraordinarily professional. Spouse was giving me an earful about us not having a system installed after I promised her last summer that I would once things slowed down at work. Once I realized that I wouldn't be able to do this myself I looked online but the prices that I saw were ludicrous so I kept putting it off. As much as I hate paying someone to do something this simple, I didn't have the time to install the fence on my own and I was tired of listening to the complaining about not having a fence. Luckily, I was able to find these guys. Gary at Dog Guard was able to perform a challenging installation on our sloped property that has many irregular boundaries to negotiate (as well as my wife's delicate flora that I absolutely would have 'accidentally' ruined during a DIY). They called the morning of the install to verify our appointment, showed up ten minutes early, listened to how I wanted it done, explained everything that they needed and then got to work. In a perfect world I would have installed this underground fence myself and saved a big bunch of money--in that same perfect world I'd also be married to nymphomaniac super-model that loves to ride motorcycles and is mute, but yet I digress. If you've read this far into the review, then you should go ahead and at least call Gary for a quote; he was 33% cheaper than Invisible Fence. Guard Dog was an excellent compromise between a cost-effective DIY installation and the super freakin' ridiculous prices of the other vendors online. Thank you, Guard Dog!

Gary was able to install the fence around our 2.5 acre lot in under two hours! He and his staff were very patient in helping me train each dog. They are very knowledgeable in this field and I would highly recommend their company. Great service and great prices! Thanks Gary!

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

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!!

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!!!!

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 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. You're 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.

Ever since I've been recommending this company to all of our friends!

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.

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 boundries. He has so much more freedom to roam our property he loves it! I highly recommend Dog Guard!

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.

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.

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 or Vizsla puppy Gunnar with the collar! They were very professional and on time, we highly recommend them!

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.
