How to Have Your Dog Meet and Greet Other Dogs

I was in Naples last week installing a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® system for a new client and his Cocker Spaniel named Buddy.  Buddy liked to jump over the back fence and explore all over the neighborhood.  This made it very inconvenient for my client and he wanted his Spaniel to stay put in the yard.  I installed the fence with the wire along the top of his current fence to create a “no fly” zone for Buddy.  It worked...

When You Are Riding Your Bike and a Dog Chases You

I was in Coconut Creek last week working on a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® installation for a new client and his Boxer, Sparky.  Sparkey, like all Boxers, loved to run all around the yard.  The problem was that he also loved to run out of the yard.  He loved to visit the neighbors and chase after the Mail Man, joggers, kids on bikes, etc.  Needless to say, this was not making my new client the most popular person in the neighborhood. ...
