“Spoke with Chris, he took time explaining the product well, so we decided to purchase [Dog Guard] pet fencing. Install no problems and we have underground lawn sprinklers, the installer worked well with our 4yr old Doberman. Follow up training (us) took no time, our Doberman after one correction, now enjoying the freedom of his home (backyard, side and front yard) space.”

Money well spent. My pups learned very quickly and have been enjoying all the extra space they now have. Set up was quick and painless. Very happy with the purchase.

After doing my research and deciding we didn’t want to actually fence our property but wanted to give our 2 dogs freedom to enjoy the yard we came across Dog Guard of Illinois and we couldn’t be happier. It was such an easy process, did not take long and the dogs were trained after a day. A month later they can now run around outside without supervision and seem so much happier!

Katelyn G. | Romeoville, IL

October 18, 2021

Matt was very professional and friendly consulting me about the process. Cliff was also friendly to myself and my dog. After the fence was installed, he took the time to give Stella a crash course in how to navigate it. Matt provides excellent follow up, as the first week has been challenging for Stella. I appreciate his timely responses and advice. They are a great company and I will recommend them to everyone!

Mitch K. | Riverwoods, IL

They got me set up less than a week from my initial call. Fair price. Did the job right the first time, fence is effective, so pleased to be able to let our little buddies outside without concern. A+

Thank you for coming out to our farm and putting in our new fencing for our 3 labs. We now can relax and let them enjoy the farm without having to worry about them running off.

Donna P. | Algonquin, IL

August 18, 2021

Everything has been simple and stress free. Dogs are now loving a yard to run instead of being hooked up to a tie-out. Pricing is fair are far out beats any wood or aluminum fencing quotes. Couldn't be happier! Thanks Dog Guard for making three dogs very happy, and sleepy from all the running!

Everyone in my neighborhood has invisible fence. We are on acre lots and need the ability for the dog to roam. Called them and Chris was prompt, went through everything and I moved forward with them immediately. System installed in a few hours and it was a flawless, enjoyable install. Helped teach the dog and she caught on within 30 minutes and is still doing good. Had a minor issue and they called right away and resolved it. Times like these we should always choose small business where your a name and not a number. Veteran owned was what made me move forward right away. I’m fully confident they will always answer my call or any issues with the system in the future.

I would highly recommend Dog Guard of Illinois. If it weren’t for the weather the entire process would have been complete within a couple days. As soon as it was possible it was done the very next day I was available. Chris always responded to my texts and the installation was very quick, professional and informative. Thank you Dog Guard! My Hank is loving his ablility to run

I have three huskies and this fence really keeps them in the backyard. The provider (Chris) that I purchased the installation from is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Even after one of my huskies used one of their tricks to remove a collar and destroyed it, Chris helped me replace the old one without the need to purchase an entirely new collar. This will be my preferred e-fence company from now on.

Bill M. | Lake In The Hills, IL

December 24, 2020

After researching and getting pricing Dog Guard had the best pricing and the best ideas for how to set up our perimeter. Install was on time and fast. Took a couple of weeks for our 3 dogs to get used to it but now even if we slip and forget a collar they know their boundary.

December 6, 2020

We decided to put an electric fence in for our Great Dane mix rescue puppy, (Scooby, 9 months) who is able to jump our 4 foot fence. Luckily, he is not a runner & stayed close by. I called several companies & Chris, a veteran & owner of Dog Guard, called me back promptly and set up appointment to install the fence after giving me a quote over the phone that was more reasonable than other companies. They came out to install within a few days and showed me how to use the fence with the collar on Scooby. Now he is able to be in the front or back yard. I believe in supporting small businesses & Dog Guard provided excellent service, answered all my questions, was very professional & guarantees their products. I highly recommend using Dog Guard to protect your pets.

We looked around at a lot of invisible fence companies and decided to go with Dog Guard. We are glad we did because they did a great job on the install, they were very friendly and helpful and not only on-time but early. They took the time to train the dog after installing the fence and took the time to answer all my questions and then some. We are very happy with them and glad we chose to go with them over the other companies we researched. We've had the fence for about a month now and have had no issues with it and it works great!

Marie A. |

November 19, 2020

Install very quick, training was very quick, our 8 month old puppy is catching on very quickly. Chris was very helpful on the phone and answered all questions. I like how all products are USA made and it is a veteran owned company. I am a big advocate for supporting veteran companies and local small businesses.

Dog Guard was quick to respond to my request and quick to get my fence installed. Chris was able to offer recommendations on installation to help it work better for my pets. Training has been incredibly easy. My dogs love being able to run around outside without being tied up! I highly recommend Chris and Cliff and Dog Guard!

After doing some shopping around to see what would best fit my pets I found Dog Guard and I will have to say I am very happy with this decision! Chris and Cliff were so great absolutely polite and very well educated on the product they sell and helping with any questions and concerns I had even after the install I called Chris multiple times with follow up questions and he was so helpful and understanding of my crazy calls being the first time with an electric fence! I woul definitely recommend them to anyone looking!

Anthony P. | Darien, IL

September 14, 2020

I did a lot of research before choosing them. I appreciated the honest conversation, the fact that they buried the line deeper, had a competitive price, and worked with me to ensure I was happy with the job. I have a lot of lines in my backyard and they made sure to take then utmost care when digging.

Sydney G. |

Chris was great to work with and he was very calm and patient when training our dog. We have had the fence for a while now and have had no issues! We would definitely recommend Dog Guard and Chris over anyone else!

August 25, 2020

We got two 3 month old puppies in January. A Husky and a German Shepherd. They are very high energy and since we have a huge backyard, we wanted to allow them to run around freely and play. A couple months ago we contacted Dog Guard and had them install an invisible fence around our property. This has been a game changer for us and our dogs. So happy we went with Dog Guard!

Phillip C. |

August 20, 2020

I am so pleased with the results! Only a few days since the installation and my 2 Bordeaux 's are enjoying their freedom! Very professional and helpful with the installation. Highly recommend Dog Guard

August 10, 2020

Dog Guard has been a game changer for our family! Chris was so knowledgeable and responsive to questions and concerns that we had regarding the fence and our puppy. We set the date for installment and Cliff was amazing. He walked through the property with me and made sure I understood the boundaries of the fence. Cliff trained our dog with the collar which has been awesome! I love that we can hangout outside with Mae and not worry about her running off. Highly recommend to everyone and anyone who has a dog!

Aidan M. |

August 9, 2020

Chris was extremely helpful when looking for info about an invisible fence. They were out within 3 days to install. Everything done very professionally. I would highly recommend if looking for a fence company—doesn’t hurt that they were also the cheapest (by a bunch!) of the companies we talked to.

We can finally let the dog out in the backyard without worrying that he will run in the lake or, simply, run away. It works well and it has only been one day since he was trained with the collar. Our dog learned well and doesn’t go near the flags. Eventually, we will remove the flags. With so many choices, we’re glad we chose Dog Guard. Very pleased with the service and great communication.

Amy B. |

June 7, 2020

Chris was amazing! From the first time we spoke he answered all our questions and was able to give us a quote over the phone. We were able to schedule installation fast. Once he got to our home he walked around the yard with us and helped us make the decision onwhere to place our fence to keep our dog safe. We have a walking trail behind our home We were considered about. He put our fence in just how we wanted it. He did the initial training with our dog and gave us “homework” for her to do. I would recommend Chris in a heart beat. This process was easy. Thanks Chris!! Dog Guard of Illinois

May 15, 2020

Chris over @ Dog Guard took good care of us. The install was quick and smooth with no damage to the yard, and he was able to train our dog the very same day. Best part is, the dog stays in the yard now. Thanks Chris.

May 15, 2020

Chris, the local Dog Guard dealer answered my first call, scheduled our invisible fence installation within a week, and had it installed within 4 hours on a full 1/2 acre. He trained our pup in no time. One month later and we couldn t be happier with the work. Our pup is safe and free to roam! Great job, Chris!

I can't say enough about the great service and professionalism of Chris with Dog Guard. I first contacted them by phone and email and within an hour he had contacted me, that is someone who cares about his business and customer service. When he came to install the system he had it completed in no time and spent time with us and our dogs ensuring proper understanding of how to use it with our dogs. Absolutely great! Thank You Chris.

Stephanie G. |

March 18, 2020

We have 2 XL breed dogs that have a mind of their own. We wanted an alternative to a traditional fence, and after comparing Chris to other companies, we felt confident choosing this electric fence. Even through all of our dogs fur, the collar works. We like that it beeps as a warning.

Debbie D. |

January 8, 2020

Just had ours installed a few days ago. Service was excellent. So far the dogs are learning their boundaries and seems to be working well.

Patrick M. |

January 2, 2020

My dog has used this for about 7 months now. She really went through the initial training as directed and has learned her boundaries. She has actually enjoyed the freedom of not having a wooden fence anymore. I cannot say enough good things about my experience from sales to installation to after sales additional support when requested. Thanks!

Kaitlyn K. |

December 30, 2019

Our experience with Dog Guard has been excellent! The installation was quick and easy. I was very nervous about our Bentley learning the boundaries, but he has done great! Chris worked very well with him. He was knowledgeable and reassuring. It is amazing to have our dog outdoors with us off leash!

Sherri W. | Essex, IL

December 5, 2019

Chris installed an underground fence for us on Nov. 22. He was very professional, and explained the system and it's use to me. The installation itself was surprisingly quick. Chris also took the dogs out to train them. I have to say the dogs are so much happier being able to run around the yard. And I am happier not having to take them outside on the leash all the time!

Renee L. |

December 3, 2019

I had Chris come to install Dog Guard for my chihuahua Holly. This has been so helpful to keep her in my yard. She knows her boundaries and will not go near them. Chris was quick to respond. He was helpful in training my dog on the product.

Renee N. | Cary, IL

November 16, 2019

Chris was amazing from start to finish. He promptly returned my phone calls and answered all my questions before we decided on Dog Guard of Illinois. On the day of the install he explained everything that he was going to do before he did it. Chris was great with our dog and made sure to answer all of my questions regarding dog training and the fence. Chris is highly knowledgeable and very professional. I would recommend his company to anyone considering an invisible fence.

Christina B. | Shorewood, IL

October 20, 2019

Highly recommend Dog Guard of IL! Chris is not only knowledgeable about his product but also about training a dog in general. He is very easy to get a hold of and takes his time answering questions.

Cathleen D. | Libertyville, IL

October 1, 2019

I can't say enough about how great my experience with Dog Guard has been! After a lightning strike and a fence that stopped working, Chris came out the day after I called. He fully assessed the fence and transmitter, confirming that it was indeed fried (you should see the tree!). Then, he showed great flexibility for installing it within my work and travel schedule. He explained everything clearly and succinctly. I think his passion for doing a good job shines through in his demeanor. And, if I ever do have a problem with this lifetime guarantee, I have confidence that he will come through with excellent service!

Peggy G. |

I am so happy with my experience with my new Dog Guard System! Chris was awesome! He explained everything very well and was able to answer all our questions.

Robert M. |

August 16, 2019

Chris did a great job for us. Our dogs have much more room to roam now that the chain link fence is gone and we have the Out of Sight fence. We have two dogs and they both took to the training easily. We are very pleased we chose Dog Guard Illinois

Bryan K. |

August 6, 2019

Chris was very quick to respond to our call. We had our fence installed several years ago and was not installed very efficiently. He was able to assess the issues and recommend the appropriate changes. We had it all fixed in less than a week and so far, so good. I would recommend him and his services if you are in need of an out of sight fence.

Adam D. | Spring Grove, IL

June 2, 2019

Chris was very professional and provided exactly the service we were requesting. Another vendor insisted the install must be done their way, including cutting the driveway and drilling were not wanted. Chris with Dog guard installed exactly as requested, with no damage and no trace of any install. The dog has tested the fence a few times, but never left the yard. We are now comfortable letting him out on his own or letting him roam free when we are outside doing our thing. No more leash at home.

Had my fence installed by Chris last week. Everything went great. He was here on time, went over all the details, got my large yard done quickly. Even got everything mounted in my garage that didn't have ideal outlet placements. My dog is responding very well to the training. Very happy with my purchase.

Definitely a value add for my family. My dog Samwise is already used to the fence as opposed to the DIY version I installed 2 years ago. Avoid that disaster and go with Dog Guard.

Chris is great, he took his time to figure out the area which was a little tricky because I have a barn I wanted the dogs to go in but not the pastures. it worked out great and the dogs learned the boundry quickly.

Life changing! Our Golden puppy is a runner... so he could never just hang outside with us unless he was in s lead. Literally had it installed today and he is out hanging out with the kids while they play basketball. No more crying at the door wishing he was with them! Thank you Chris for your amazing service and training... and Rizzo thanks you!

Ryan L. |

April 17, 2019

Very excited to have this installed and was a little nervous about how the dogs would react but Chris took each of our two dogs and gave them a little training session. He also gave us a very insightful rundown of how the system works and what our expectations should be. Glad we chose Dog Guard of Illinois!

Nicki L. |

April 16, 2019

Chris was great to work with. Understood our needs and took his time explaining the product, process and training. He was amazing with our dogs and did a great job installing. I am blown away that our extremely stubborn shep (who was not fazed at all by the invisible fence we installed ourself from the store) seemed to understand immediately and stayed in the boundaries. This is a life saver. No more fixing our wooden fence from the dogs digging or jumping, no more tie outs that get tangled and no more looking for a dog that escapes out of yard. Thank you so much !!!

Jeanice P. |

April 15, 2019

Chris did a great job installing my fence and teaching us how to train our dog. Chris answered any questions we had after the installation and was available at anytime. I did research before purchasing the invisible fence with different companies and Chris explained everything in great detail. I have had the fence since February and my dog knows how close he can get to the fence and if he does get close he will run to the door to correct himself. The training and instructions worked great if followed.

Chris owner and operator of dog guard is amazing! He makes the whole process Of getting a electric fence easy! My mother-in-law was very uneasy about this idea for our dogs and once she was able to talk to Chris all her worries were put to Rest, He is a kind caring and understanding person and will help with anything you need and takes the time to make sure you fully understand everything that is going on. We are just now in the beginning stages of training and we have had a few questions and he answers them promptly with no hesitation or attitude. You can tell he is truly in it for our furry friends! I Used invisible fence in the past but will use them no longer now that I have found Dog Guard!! Thank you Chris for the excellent experience for me and my family and especially for my furry family!

I called Chris for a second opinion. I’m so glad I did. He saved me a few hundred dollars. He was very professional, respectful, honest and upfront. It is very obvious that he loves what he does and also believes in giving the best customer service. I also appreciate that he regularly maintains his equipment because the first person I had come out said that my fence needed to be replaced because the signal was poor due to the cables. Chris assessed the situation with the same type of equipment and the signals were very strong. He fixed a couple of places in the fence and it was done. Thanks Chris!

I highly recommend Dog Guard of Illinois. We had our Dog Guard system installed about 8 years ago, but recently needed help troubleshooting a problem. Chris was extremely helpful and continued to work with us until the problem was completely resolved. He was professional and courteous throughout the entire process.

Dog Guard was the best choice we could have made !!! Chris was so informative on the training that went along with the fence and also gave us more training tips that have worked wonders with our 4 month old pitbull puppy. I also want to say their response to our call to install was same day and within a week our fence was installed. Thank you Dog Guard and Chris

Dog Guard was FANTASTIC. I called the more common name brand, but was very underwhelmed with their service and timeliness. Dog Guard on the other hand went above and beyond, giving me an estimate and quick install date. Dog Guard was easy to work with, easy to communicate with and provided top-notch service in a very timely fashion.

Mary F. | Crest Hill, IL

June 28, 2016

Very friendly and patient to work with. Chris spent time with both my 70-year old mother and her dog to help train them both on using the invisible fence.

Outstanding Service! I was impressed with the quick response to my inquiry and how fast they were able to install our fence. They were professional, friendly and punctual. I will definitely recommend them to my family and friends and keep them in mind for any future services needed.
