DogWatch celebrates 25 years

DogWatch 25th Anniversary Celebration

DogWatch, maker of the safest and most reliable hidden pet fence in the business, celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2015. In 1990, Fred King, DogWatch’s Founder and President, had a problem – his family needed to keep their feisty pet cat Slapshot and her claws away from the new furniture in their living room. After looking at the options available, King saw an intriguing business opportunity, and set out to make a quality, dependable and technologically advanced pet containment solution to meet the growing needs of pet owners like himself. “25 years later,” says King, “DogWatch has grown into an international industry leader, and our Hidden Fence systems have given nearly 500,000 dogs the freedom to play outdoors safely.”

DogWatch Dealer Dave Wingfield and Cesar Millan

Cesar’s Way: "Dogs Must Have Boundaries"

Most dog owners (especially those with, shall we say, “difficult” dogs) know who Cesar Millan is. Called the Dog Whisper, the self-taught Millan is well-known for his success in training particularly aggressive dogs. His methodology? Helping dogs find “balance” by utilizing his understanding of “dog psychology,” combined with “calm-assertive energy” and his “fulfillment forumula”: exercise, then discipline, then finally affection.

DogWatch dealer Dave Wingfield of Hudson Valley Boundaries was recently able to attend one of Millan’s seminars on his “Trust Your Instincts” tour, and had the chance to have a meet & greet with Millan backstage. During their chat, Millan noticed Wingfield’s DogWatch shirt. When Wingfield asked if he approved, Millan said, “Of course. Dogs must have boundaries.” That statement in and of itself sums up Millan’s ethos as a trainer: in order for dogs to be truly happy and healthy, they must have boundaries. DogWatch Hidden Fences, Indoor Boundaries, and Remote Trainers are all useful and appropriate components in providing such boundaries.
