Todd & Cathy | New Market, MD

“Skip came out to the house, walked the perimeter, and explained the entire installation procedure to us. He installed the fence in a morning and did the first round of training on day one. Within the first week, our dog crossed over one time for a squirrel. Fortunately, I was able to call Skip and he got back to me within 24 hours. We corrected the problem, and we have not had a problem since. Even better, I know that if another squirrel were to tempt the dog at the fence line, Skip is just a phone call away. As long as we own Dog Guard, Skip will be there to help us. He stands by his product and truly means it when he says 'Please call me, I want to make sure you are satisfied and your dog is safe.' We highly recommend Dog Guard. ”

“Two things stand out to me about the new Dog Guard system. First would be the system became effective immediately in keeping our new lab puppy from the highway. Not only did it train the young pup, but when the two labs were introduced to the system properly the older lab learned in one afternoon what the new parameters would be. This is something I originally had doubts about, with the stubborn habit of chasing cars this lab had developed over time. The proper introduction to the system brings me to my 2nd and most important item, which would be customer service. Our Dog Guard specialist was Skip Daugherty, and no question his knowledge and professional “can-do” attitude combined with an expert installation makes this system a total success. He installed this system exactly as requested in regards to location, and the training he provided was exceptional. This day and age it seems customer service is all too often overlooked, however when a system is installed and the representative returns several times in the days to follow to ensure you and your dogs are comfortable, that speaks volumes to me about a company. I would highly recommend Dog Guard and representative Skip Daugherty to anyone who is in search of fencing.”

Protecting our new puppies and older dogs was the goal. We live next to busy roads on all sides and making sure our fuzzy kids were safe have us peace of mind. Skip and Danny were awesome. Installation exactly where we wanted and they took plenty of time to train our crew and train us! Totally happy thus far and knowing they're just a phone/ text away to help if needed is great! Thanks guys!! We REALLY appreciate you!

Patricia S. |

Skip was awesome. He explained everything really well, fast scheduling and great training. We chose to get our underground fence, because moving into our new home, our 2 dogs and cat loves to be outside. Before the fence, our cat would run out of the house and escape the property. Now he stays within the vicinity of the fence and is outside 24/7. We are no longer scared to let our babies outside without supervision. Would 100% recommend. Thanks again!

Ave S. |

Skip was recommended to us by a couple of friends and I'm happy to pass along the glowing recommendation. Install was very quick. He explained everything and made sure we were comfortable with the system. This has been the best decision for us and for our active 8 month old GSP.

Julie P. |

Getting our underground fence installed was a complete Life saver for us & our German shorthair pointer Hank who likes to run constantly. He was destroying our small fenced in yard because he just needed more room to wear himself out. This was the perfect space he needed. Skip’s install & training was awesome. Hank adapted so quick and he will not go through this fence even on the rare times without his collar on. It gives us peace of mind that is he is safe & will not run off. We are forever thankful for Dog Guard of Maryland. I highly recommend!

Dawn Baer |

Had a great experience ! My dogs love the freedom , we love them being happy! We have had a problem or two my dogs being the culprits, but Skip is great at communication and helping us fix the problems! Calling him with the concerns and him showing up same day or next day to help us correct it. Would highly recommend!

Beth Maroney Harvey |

After many calls, research, and site visits, I landed on Dog Guard of Maryland. Skip was the ultimate professional from our first conversation to well after installation. He was patient with all of my questions and while training our quite stubborn Rosie. I would highly recommend him!! A+

Sarah Boltz |

Skip did a great job of explaining the process and the dos/don'ts of training our pup. He has also been very responsive when I have questions about training/batteries/etc. His team is very trustworthy and I plan to use them for our new home!

Aaron Huegel |

Skip did an excellent job with my install of the underground fence (couple years ago at this point) and I needed some help recently… Skip went above and beyond any expectations you could want or ask for to take care of me. Skip was great with communication, punctuality, still has the same great customer service skills, and helped me out in a pinch. Big thank you to Skip and Dog Guard of Maryland!

Ashley Barclay |

Skip does a phenomenal job! He is very thorough and clearly has a love for all dogs he works with. He explains everything to owners in full detail!

Vince Bello | Middletown, MD

We thank Dog Guard and our Mailman also thanks Dog Guard Everyday for protecting him from our guard dog Milo. We have been using our Dog Guard system since Milo was 3 months old, and it’s been great ! Thank you Dog Guard for a great professional job.

Scott & Donna L | Jefferson, MD

Huge thank you for the excellent work! The system continues to keep our two Italian Mastiffs contained. In addition, Skip is always a phone call away for supplies or any questions we’ve had. I would recommend the Dog Guard system and Skip to anyone in need of keeping their pets safe at home. Thanks so much!

Neil Mantle |

We just moved to a larger piece of property next to a much busier road. we were worried about our dogs getting hit. Skip came out surveyed, installed, and trained our pups. The dogs have lost some weight from all the free running they can do now and best of all we don't have to worry about the traffic or the road. Definitely recommend them for your pet's needs.

Brandy Madison |

Very helpful. Very patient and went out of his way to answer my questions and concerns. Responds quickly. The customer service and products are awesome. The collar works exceptionally well on my very very stubborn beagle. Now if I could only control her howling.

Ajay Patil | Jefferson, MD

My experience with Skip and Dog Guard has been fantastic! Skip was very patient with my skittish rescue and worked with me every step of the way to ensure me and my dog, Loki was comfortable with the fence. I would highly recommend Skip and Dog Guard to anyone, as my experience was extremely positive and the results speak for themselves. I have a happy dog that can enjoy his yard, without me having to worry about him taking off! Thanks, again!

Paula Smith Pearson |

My dog was trained in a day. Skip was the best.

Mo Z. |

We got a fence for our dog who likes to roam and we love it. He learned very quickly where his boundaries are. We were very happy with the service we received and the thorough instructions of how to train our dog with the fence. We were treated in a very professional and friendly manner. This was the best decision we ever made highly recommend dog guard to anyone with a dog who doesn't want to have to build a fence.

Megan Klock |

We have had our fence for a couple months now and we could not be happier with it! Our pup who had to be leashed is now able to run and play around the back and front yard! I would recommend this service to anyone who is looking for an underground dog fence! Thank you Skip and Danny!

Jenny Smith |

Very thorough and professional. It's been about a month now and both my dogs are loving free run of the yard while knowing where their boundaries are. We previously bought a wireless containment system and trained our one dog according to the instructions and we ended up with a porch dog. Skip gained the trust of our dogs and taught us, and the dogs of course, very well. Highly recommend this service.

Holly Hamilton |

Love my fence. Skip goes out of his way to help whenever there is a problem. Like lightning hitting the box. Not that there is a lot of problems. Just weather!

Heather D. |

Fantastic service! Skip is the best. Even on vacation he quickly got our batteries out to us so our retriever could not escape :) Fence has also worked perfectly from day one.

Dori Carr |

Our experience with Skip and Dog Guard of Maryland was wonderful! We had the electric fence installed. I now feel comfortable letting both of my dogs outside to play. I'm not worried they will run off and it gives them time to expel some energy! Best decision we made for these pups! ✔Professional ✔Affordable ✔Happy Pups and Owners! 🤩

Donna Rich | New Market, MD

Just wanted to thank Skip and Dog Guard for the outstanding system and service. We recently moved and had Skip install a system at our new property and both our dogs, (one that used to jump the fence regularly) and our cat are regularly secure. Thanks so much for your help, we can’t tell you how much it means to us!

Dave Clements | Frederick, MD

I have had a dog guard system installed at my house for 12 years. The system had worked flawlessly until I decided to locate my septic tank with a digging bar. I knew I must have damaged the fence when the alarm went off on the main unit. I pulled my hair out for several hours trying to locate the break but had no success. I then contacted Skip from Dog Guard of Maryland and explained my situation and even though he did not install the fence originally he was their the next day and fixed the fence in minutes. Well, 1-year later I decided to aerate my yard. I thought It would be a good idea to put extra weight on the aerator so the tines would really dig in. Bad idea. The alarm was sounding again and I pretty much destroyed the system. I fiddled with it for several months and was hesitant to call because of the thought of having a new system installed was not in my budget. Finally after the dog had got brave again and was going out of the yard I decided to have the fence fixed. I called Skip on the coldest snowiest day in January and he understood the urgency of the problem and he scheduled an appt. to fix the fence. Skip showed up prepared to do the work and did so in a professional manner at a reasonable price. I was very impressed with his workmanship and service. The service that his company brings is hard to find today and I would highly recommend Dog Guard of Maryland and Skip to anyone considering a dog fence.

Dog Guard is highly recommended. I received great customer service and the fence has been great and no issues with the dogs.
