About DOG GUARD of Illinois

After serving four years in the United States Navy, I returned home to Minooka, Illinois in search of work.  Not knowing yet what my calling would be, I transitioned from job to job, several times, before receiving a wonderful opportunity from Myles and Sue Smith.  The Smith’s were the owners of Dog Guard of Illinois at the time and looking to begin retirement and train someone to take over their growing franchise…I jumped at the chance!

I grew up with animals of all kinds, but always have had a soft spot for dogs large and small.  Quickly I began learning all I could about Dog Guard, about underground fencing, and began honing my training skills!

After a long transition period, of education and hands on experience, I am proud to say that I am now the owner and operator of Dog Guard of Illinois.

I am ever grateful to Myles and Sue for their support and for the support of my wife Haley during this transition period.

For those of you who are new to Dog Guard, welcome!  You will not find a better product or a more dedicated team to helping you with all of your pet containment needs.

For those of you who are existing customers, I look forward to continuing to live up to the highest expectations and standards set before me and continuing to serve you and your furry family members for many years to come!
