Review by in Maple Park, IL
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.

The invisible fence company was relatively expensive, but they accommodated our needs.
Response by Dog Guard Of Illinois: Dog Guard and The Invisible Fence company are not associated with one another. We did not perform this work.

Review by Joseph D. in Lincolnshire, IL
He tried to charge me $180 to fix my fence that was working on Feb 7 but said that I needed a new fence for $500! This can’t be true since the fence was working in February and just needed to be reconnected. I suspect that he damaged the fence so it would’nt work. The fence does not work now and I’m very disappointed with Home Advisor. Now I’m left with a broken dog fence.
Response by Dog Guard Of Illinois: I'm sorry that you're upset. As I told you when I came out to assist you, your fence was damaged. If it was not already damaged you would not have contacted me in the first place. I offered not to charge you at all if you did not want me to complete the repairs of the breaks I found, which were numerous. I also told you prior to fixing the numerous breaks in the wire that even if those were fixed, the fence would still not work properly as their was too much corrosion in the wire. I suggested to you that since you had so much corrosion and the system was 30 years old, it would be best to replace the entire perimeter wire. I pride myself on being upfront and honest with every customer and treat everyone the way I would like to be treated and that's why I offered a free quote for replacement and offered not to charge you anything that day, to which you replied "I want to pay you."

Review by in Elgin, IL
Showed up quickly and was very courteous and professional. Our old electric fence (by another company) could not be fixed, so he installed a new fence same day. Showed us how to train our puppy to the fence and left specific instructions on how to proceed with training. Also offered to return if we had any problems. Our only negative is that the collar he provided is too thin to support the weight of the receiver. We ended up buying another wider collar and "Jimmy-rigging" it to accommodate the receiver.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
