I would never use a shock collar on my dog! How many times I heard myself say that. The very thought of using such a thing on my beloved pets was unthinkable. That is until Loki came into our lives. Loki, our Siberian Husky who was rescued from life in a small cage, came to us at 6 months old.
In our large, fenced backyard he discovered what huskies were born to do – RUN! And when he saw the deer in the peach orchard behind our house, he discovered another talent – escape artist! Anyone who has ever had a dog run off from their home and get lost knows that horrible sinking feeling. You are so frantic to find them it’s hard to even breathe. Three times Loki answered the call of the wild to chase the deer and rabbits behind our house. The third time, after hours of the searching, hoarse from calling him name, I found him on the other side of the state highway! How he safely crossed the traffic was a mystery to me, but I knew I could never take that chance again. This was truly a matter of life and death for our Loki Blue Eyes.
As I clung to his neck and cried I knew I had to do something to keep him safe. When we got home I called our vet who recommended Jason and South Jersey DogWatch. The next day Jason came out, installed the electric fence and began teaching us how to use it. Each time Jason came to work with us on the proper use of the fence, his love of dogs was easy to see. Loki took to him right away. We could tell this was more than just business to him, that he did this because he loves dogs and wants them to be safe, which is just what we needed. He came back as often as we needed him and helped us train Loki to understand and respect the new barrier around our property.
Now with our electric fence Loki stays clear of the fence perimeter. No more digging or squeezing under it. And I can let him outside to play with his doggy brothers with full confidence that when I call them to come in, he will be there with his tail wagging and his blue eyes smiling.
I simply cannot thank you enough, Jason, for the peace of mind you have given us, not only for the fence itself, but also the knowledge that you stand behind your work. Every time we have needed some help with the fence you have come right out and fixed things for us. It is a pleasure working with you. Again, thank you so very much.
