DogWatch dealers from 31 states and 5 countries met in Texas this past weekend, February 6-8, 2015, for the 21st Annual DogWatch Dealer Meeting. The 2015 Dealer Meeting was a special one as it coincides with DogWatch’s 25th Anniversary. More than 200 Dealers, employees and family members attended the meeting at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort in Lost Pines, TX, 30 minutes east of Austin.

The annual conference features workshops, general sessions and information tables, and it provides a wonderful opportunity for Dealers to brush up on the latest technology and learn about new DogWatch products, including the new SideWalker leash trainer and the BarkCollar. The meeting also gives Dealers the chance to catch up with each other and share ways that they are managing their business in order to bring the best pet containment solutions to their communities.
