Project: Install Electronic Pet Fence
Dog Guard products work very well, but I was having some problems. Jeff Damon responded quickly to my call and came out within 24 hours to make the corrections.

It is now June 4 and my dog has not willingly gone out in the yard. She is apparently very sensitive and her veterinarian says Janni is not going to accept the electronic fence. Oh, well.

Jeff was very efficient in setting up two dog fences on our property, one in our backyard and one in our front yard. He completed the work in 3-4 hours and I would highly recommend him to others.

Project: Install Electronic Pet Fence
Jeff showed up on time, performed the installation and demonstrated how to train the dogs - all in less than three hours. UPDATE: I had the fence installed on June 21, 2018. I went on vacation, came back and the fence was no longer active. I called Jeff who said he would be out the next day. He never came out nor did he call to say he wasn't coming. I called him the next day and he rescheduled for the next day. He never showed nor did he answer calls or a text I sent. He said the fence wasn't working because someone probably went over it with a lawnmower or edger. Because he wouldn't come out to honor the warranty, I discovered that two of the connections he installed were faulty. Any pull on the wires, which sit on the ground, not underground, disconnects the wires. At the connection where the two wires meet to go in different directions, the screw caps were not sufficiently tight. One soft pull and they fell out. I repaired the fence myself, but I would never recommend Guard Dog - especially with the price I paid.
Response by Dog Guard of Maine: Jeff said that he broke his ankle and wasn't able to perform the services that the home owner is requesting. He feels that it on fair to be treated this way by the consumer since he's injured and can't do the work.

Review by in Phippsburg, ME
I did not give this contractor a 5 because of the two times he did not show up for the pre-determined appointment and it required persistence on my part to follow up. However after he did arrive, he was friendly, worked until the job (about 1200 feet of 12 gauge wire laid in heavy woods, etc.) was competed even though it was raining. System operation was explained, two year collar battery provided and my dog initially trained. The system is working well so far.

This product works! It's not installed underground but is essentially a wire around your property.

  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.
