Summer Heat for Dogs in Cars and on the Street

I was over in Naples visiting one of my Dog Guard Out of Sight Fence clients and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Toby.  Toby had previously had the annoying habit of running onto the golf course and trying to steal the golf balls as they landed on the green.  After we installed the out of sight dog fence, Toby was done with this issue and he politely watched the game from the comfort of his back yard.  Well, as I was leaving Toby’s, I...

Creating Play Zones in Your Yard for Your Dogs

Robin and I were at a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fence client last week in Coral Springs planning their new underground dog fence.  Her question regarding Sawyer, her two year-old Beagle, was that she wanted him to be free to roam outside, but still have multiple boundaries.  She didn’t want him to go nuts in the front when the kids loved running and chasing him in the back.  How could we create the proper zones using our system and training...
