Natina P. | Groton, MA

“Our do it yourself fence was struck by lightning and needed to be replaced. Ideal offered great value and ease in replacing our system professionally instead of doing it ourselves. Other companies didn’t offer to meet in person and were 40% more expensive. Thanks, Brian for also being so very patient with my nervous fur balls in the training process. We will refer friends to only Ideal Fence from here on out!”

Bob B. | Winchendon, MA

“Nice guy and does great work in a timely manner. I have already recommended him to several people.”

Andy P. | Westwood, MA

“Brian was great. I called to move a section of my existing fence. We agreed on what we wanted to do over the phone and once he arrived, he had everything finished in under an hour!! Very professional and reliable.”

Highly recommend dog guard! My 4 month old chocolate lab took the the training immediately and it has been a great addition to our yard. We have had zero issues with the system, and honestly I don’t know how we lived without it before. The customer service is amazing.

Melissa G. | Leicester, MA

Dog Guard of Central MA is a pleasure to do business with. Brian is so responsive and knowledgeable, he will walk you through the entire process of how your fence will operate, be installed, and offer training and tips to familiarize your dog with their new boundaries. The service that I received was professional, the installation was done neatly and did not tear up my lawn, they did a great job. I had follow up questions the day after installation and Brian was extremely helpful with calming me and my dogs and helping us proceed with our training. I highly recommend them!

We inherited our nephews puppy Odin when he tragically passed away. We have a huge yard and wasn’t sure what to do for a fence. I turned to google and figured I’d look into the invisible fence as fencing the yard would cost us thousands!!! I found Ideal Fence and saw that they were local. They called us back immediately and came out same week. Our fence has been installed and only took a couple of hours and he walked us through the process and helped us train our dog. Everyone we have worked with has been super informative and great to work with. We had to call them to request a 2nd collar as we are keeping Odin’s brother now as well, and they got back to us very quickly and even offered to come out and train Ragnar as well! I would recommend them to anyone!

Manoj S. | Littleton, MA

We had really great experience with Ideal Dog Fences from the very first time I made contact. Brian, the owner, returned my call immediately and explained the entire process of fence installation. Brian quoted us a good price and he was also flexible in terms of scheduling. He did not rush us to install the fence. Instead he suggested that we wait until the puppy turns 3 months. The installation was performed by Corey, who was very professional and resourceful. We worked together to figure out the best way to run the wires to the garage since the most logical path was blocked by a paver path. Corey showed us how to train our puppy to stay within the fence. In addition Brian immediately called me back to provide additional guidance when we reached out to him. Brian also registered the product warranty with the Dog Guard company saving me the hassle. I am also told that we will get periodic reminders for the battery replacement, which is convenient too. All in all, i would recommend ideal dog fence company to anyone looking for a professional and hassle free experience installing a dog fence for safety of their dog(s).

Aliou N. | Upton, MA

Ideal Dog Fences arrived on time and did an excellent job installing the fence and training us and the puppy. We are very happy with his professionalism. I highly recommend Ideal Dog Fences.

Jaimie S. | Webster, MA

Unbelievable service, owner answered after hours and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in getting a dog fence for our new pup. Highly recommend

Jimmy P. | Dracut, MA

Brian is awesome!!! He is very knowledgeable, professional, timely, and very responsive. After installing our fence the first time we wanted to make some adjustments to the fence parameters and he came back the very next day to make the adjustment. I was very pleased with his service, its hard to find people who do a great job and care about their customers!

Carmen C. | Brookfield, MA

Brian was extremely helpful from the beginning and answered all my questions plus the ones I didn’t know how to ask. Corey was the guy that did the job and he was very professional and knew exactly what I was looking for after I explained it to the best of my ability. He was very good with my dog and immediately earned her trust. Corey provided training which I felt it was a nice bonus because you need to understand how the system works. I highly recommend IdealDog to anyone that is looking for professionalism, well done job and reasonable price.

Michael T. | Leominster, MA

Brian with Ideal dog fences was great. He explained how the whole system and install works clearly. He showed up on time and was very efficient and clean with his work. The conduit and wiring for my unit were installed plumb and very neat with great attention to detail. Price was very good compared to other companies and his training is very straightforward, my dogs were trained on the system in 3 day. Would highly recommend.

Jackie N. | Lancaster, MA

We love the invisible fence! Brian came out to the house, met our dogs and looked at our property and developed a plan for our yard. He was able to answer any questions and concerns we had and even came back out to the house to adjust the fence for us. Very professional and I would recommend (and have!) to our fellow dog enthusiasts!

Bob M. | Shrewsbury, MA

Brian was great to work with. Not only does he install the fence but helps you understand the training methods needed to keep your dog safe.

Shawn M. | Bridgewater, MA

Brian went well out of his way to help a long term customer outside his main service area. He was responsive, professional, hard working and he presented a clear, reasonable cost with no curve balls.

Steven S. | Carlisle, MA

Brian was once again great! WE had some landscaping work that inadvertently broke the invisible fence. Brian quickly identified the problem, fixed it and had us back up and running. Fantastic service, great guy!

Jeff G. | Westminster, MA

Ideal dog just put in our new Dog Guard system. We liked the one at our last house and wanted another here. It works great for our dog. We find Ideal Dog to be responsive, knowledgeable, and professional.

Christopher L. | Sterling, MA

Great experience. Requested quote mid week and Brian called right away and found an opening by weeks end. Install went well and system is easy to use.

John S. | Webster, MA

Ideal Dog Fences was great. Brian came out and completed the project in just a couple hours and even took time to train my wife and I with our dog. I was working from home that day and there was no interruption at all. I strongly recommend Brian and Ideal Dog Fence’s!

Ernesto G. | Belmont, MA

Brian was fantastic! Excellent professional work! Highly recommended!

Gail S. | W Brookfield, MA

The person (owner) who put in the fence was very compassionate to dogs. He took his time explaining things and training me. He had somewhere else to go and never rushed. He gave me all the time I needed and said to call if there were any questions. I would highly recommend this company.

Sara A. | Douglas, MA

Brian from Ideal Dog was amazing! As a family with a smaller child and two dogs, we wanted our mind at ease when letting the dogs out. Ideal Dog did just that and more! Brian was responsive when inquiring about the product putting our minds at ease that they would be safe and sound! Brian was knowledgeable regarding the products and taught us how to train our pups so we could still go out and have fun without them being terrified of the invisible fence. Our family highly recommends Ideal Dog! Thank you, Brian and Ideal Dog!

David D. | Barre, MA

Brian got out of his truck wearing a mask. He was professional, personable, and thorough. I will recommend Ideal Dog Fence unequivocally.

Richard R. | Millbury, MA

Super nice people, very professional, gave helpful details and information.

Jen M. | Westboro, MA

Brian was very professional. He answered all of our questions and did a great job. Winston loves his new freedom. Thank you for making life easier and more fun for all of us.

Pete E. | Groton, MA

Brian and Julia were great from start to finish. From the initial contact and quote, to installation through frozen ground on a cold day, to the training, and ultimate successful containment of an incorrigible golden retriever puppy running out to greet and maul everyone walking by. If you’re looking for a pet fence and company to deal with from day 1 and beyond, you will find none better and will be very satisfied with Brian and Julia.

Luther O. | Royalston, MA

Brian did an excellent job. We are very pleased with the results.

Brian was easy to communicate with before he came, answering my questions, and scheduling the installation, so I was confident he would do a good job. He did not disappoint. He arrived on time, listened to what we wanted, and installed the fence exactly where we wanted it. He showed us how to train our dog, so we are satisfied customers.

Kristen K. | Acton, MA

We were desperate to get an electric fence installed and Ideal was able to get it all done within a week of me posting the job on HomeAdvisor. The fence is great, the dogs learned super fast and our lives were simplified. So far, so good!

Grace H. | Rutland, MA

Just a girl and her dogs. What’s better than a winter day and dogs off leash? Brian was efficient and professional. Hooking us up so my sister and I have matching systems so our dogs can socialize, explore and get their zoomies out at her place or mine.

Leah L. |

Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with and we, along with our four dogs, are very happy with the product.

Peter E. | Manchester, MA

Matt M. |

Easy to work with, got the job done quickly and very happy with the quality of the job

Cassandra L. |

I highly recommend dog guard. I have it for my dogs on about 2 acres of my land. Brian is extremely knowledgeable and is there if I have any questions. Also I like the fact that he took the time with each of my dogs to train them, and show my husband and I how to train our dogs to stay within the flags. I am a boxer breeder and I will be recommending his services to all my puppy owners.

Shannon G. |

Brian, I can't thank you enough for your flexibility and kindness shown toward our animals. The dogs are well trained thanks to your guidance and could not be happier with the fence!

Mark S. | Dracut, MA

Really, really pleased with the professionalism of this company. Very, very knowledgeable. Wished I did this way earlier. My dogs have never been happier!

Marisa G. | Charlton, MA

Brian arrived on time, stayed true to the estimate and even trained the dogs before he left! So far no incidents where either one of my pups has gotten out, and one of them is 100lbs! He was very patient with them and worked really fast, I will definitely use him again whenever I expand the yard!

Jennifer M. | Groton, MA

Unlike all the companies that advertise online and call you right away, these people actually came, charged a fair price, did quality work. We ended up paying to lay down all new wiring as our 10 year old fence had rotten and after fixing multiple breaks, that's what they recommended. Folded the initial repair work into the total cost. Was hardly more than those other companies wanted just to show up. Good service from local people.

I can't say enough about Brian and his willingness to accommodate me when I called him last minute. Brian was very professional, and did an excellent job - I highly recommend!

Jared R. | Billerica, MA

Hiring Ideal Dog Fences was an extremely pleasant experience from start to finish. They were professional, courteous, and adaptive from start to finish. I have a large yard, some of which is still rather untamed, but that had no impact on their willingness to give me the fence I wanted. Everything was explained to me thoroughly and concisely at every step of the way. After the installation was complete, Brian took the time to explain the best possible way to train my dog, and was willing to stay as long as necessary until I was comfortable doing it on my own. A few days later, he called to ask how things were going and if I wanted him to come back to help out with the training. Ideal Dog is a top notch operation, and I recommend them to anyone looking to install an electric fence.

Brian was great to work with. He was responsive to calls and texts. He took a lot of time to thoroughly explain the process From installation To training. He offers help if there are any issues with training after installation. He even helped resolve an issue we were having with our neighbor.

Karla R. |

The fence was installed exactly as we wanted. Then they showed us how to train Mazie with the fence. After the first day she already had figured it out. Even though Mazie is high energy she is also an anxious dog so after the first day she wanted to go inside after training with the fence but luckily dog guard told us to just hang with her outside and she is back to loving her yard.

Virginia O. | Holden, MA

Brian was fantastic! We have had the fence for two weeks and Brady loves it! The price was great and included everything we needed. Brian was great with Brady and he pretty much knew to stay away from the flags after Brian worked with him for just a little while! The install went quick and Brian was readily available anytime I called with questions! I can’t say enough. I would recommend ideal dog fence and Brian to anyone!

Gary G. |

Ideal Dog Fences was hired for an electronic fence installation. Brian Pitre was my contact. He did exactly what he said he would do, in the time frame promised and within the estimate given. My Rottweiler was trained in a short time, and does NOT cross the boundary lines that were set up. This is what was promised. This fence, the install, everything about this project was great. The cost of this electronic fence was so much less expensive than a physical barrier, and it works! Thank you Brian!

David A. |

I want to thank you for the effort you expended in locating the break in my DOG GUARD fence that you installed on my property years ago. When you found it, the splice was obviously one that someone else had made in my boundary wire (we have buried phone and electric and phone problem corrections probably caused that failure and improper splice). Your support for the systems you install is what I had hoped for when I chose DOG GUARD over other systems available. Your support deserves ‘Rave Ratings’. As I told you at the time you installed my system many years ago, if I had your system in place when I moved to the ‘country’ (where my city dogs had room to wander) I would have not lost two beautiful, four leg friends…. With our large lot and house well back from the road, I didn’t think that I needed to control my pets…. they’d be sure to stay by the house. For a time, they did stay close to the house, but the lure of nature lead them to untimely deaths. When they were lost, I had you install your system and since then my dogs have been totally safe. They stay close to the house without leads, tethers, or constant vigilance on our parts. I am, for the first time in my life, able to turn my pets loose and not worry about rabbits, cars, or sexual distractions luring them away from their defined grounds to be lost, injured, or killed. For many years I have been a dog obedience trainer for several organizations. In my first lesson, which is a lecture, I always discuss pet safety and stress the value of the buried wire dog fence. With the service you have always provided me, I always recommend that my students contact DOG GUARD! Thanks again for your help.

Philip Z. | Northborough, MA

They were great. Helped us out in a pinch.

Steve W. |

He is very thorough, provides good work, he's professional and doesn't hack things up and does it right right the first time.

Brian is amazing, he is super attentive and detailed. I asked about a hundred or so questions and he answered all them with a straightforward genuine answer. He is as honest, trustworthy, hardworking and knowledgeable about his craft. Even after the installation, he has been attentive and helpful with all my questions. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. I'm very happy with my experience.

Jenifer L. | Chestnut Hill, MA

Very responsive and very thoughtful in the work he did! Great to work with!

Stacy B. |

He was friendly professional, he did not tear up the yard and very helpful training my dog.

Dan G. | Princeton, MA

Prompt excellent service!

Jamie B. |

He was so awesome. He was the only one to help us with the fence on labor day in the hot sun. Did 5.5 hrs in the hot sun to complete the work. Would highly recommend.

Chris M. | Ashland, MA

Brian has great communication, great product knowledge, and made us feel comfortable through the process. Great help training the pup as well

Maria C. | Chelmsford, MA

I priced out other dog fence companies and this one was had the best pricing. Brian also called me immediately and my work was scheduled and done quickly and on time. I had an issue with my dog collar which turned out to be an issue with the batteries but Brian drove to my house to test and reviewed everything with me again. Very happy I did this. My dog is not running out of the yard into the busy street anymore. I have such a large yard so a fence was not an option, I'm happy I found Ideal Dog.

Meghan U. | Holliston, MA

Had a fantastic experience with Brian! He was prompt and explained everything thoroughly! He answered all my questions and was flexible when I had to reschedule! We are very happy with the work done and so is our dog!!

Bradley B. | Templeton, MA

Very good job, put the fence in and was training my dog the same day

Shankar K. | Hopkinton, MA

Brian was a professional who provided an estimate over the phone, worked with an outside firm to understand the need of the electronic boundary wire for my robotic lawnmower and completed the work as scheduled and did not quibble for the additional time it took him to complete the job. He returned back on a holiday weekend to fix damage done by the irrigation folks to the electronic fence

Cindy V. | Littleton, MA

Brian was wonderful to work with setting up our fence. He even came out and did additional training because she was afraid at first. It is working out Great! I highly recommend Ideal Fence - best investment for our Bella

Ron K. |

After dealing with our 15lb mini golden doodle leaving the yard and be gone for 1/2 hr at a time, it was time to do something about it. I found Brians company and couldn't be happier now. Brian was easy to work with and he let me be there during the installation and make adjustments with the underground wiring as he was installing. Needless to say, our dog did escape a couple of times after that but with a little more training from us and adjustment to the system, things are going good now. We are certainly able to let him in the yard now, with the collar on, and he stays close by. He is certainly afraid of the fence and knows where he cannot go. Hire Ideal dog!

Jackie C. |

We are so happy that we got an ideal dog fence. We have a 10 year old rat terrier but what prompted us to install an invisible fence was getting a new lab. We wanted him to be able to run free in our yard. Brian was professional and the install was quick and easy. Our older dog was fully trained in a couple of days and the puppy is trained but we still keep an eye on him out there.

Virginia O. | Holden, MA

We are so pleased with our new ideal dog fence! Our dog Brady is 3 years old, he began exploring more into the woods than we wanted and we decided to get the fence to keep him safe and out of the woods and street. We have had the fence for two weeks and are beyond pleased! Brady is very happy with his new boundaries and enjoys playing with all of the kids in the yard. Brian was amazing. The fence was installed in just a few hours and after Brian worked with Brady he understood that he should stay away from the flags. I was concerned it would be tough for Brady seeing as he is 3 and not used to being contained but he picked it up in no time! Brian was so cool to work with, fast and professional work and always a phone call away if I had questions. The price was incredibly reasonable, I was surprised how reasonable, and included all of the labor and everything we will ever need. Thank you so much Brian! Brady says thank you too!

Lee R. | Marblehead, MA

No Need for anyone to Shop around, Brian quotes competitive pricing and will do the installation right. He is a perfectionist, returns all calls promptly and pays attention to the details.

Liz T. | Holliston, MA

We hired Ideal Dog Fences for an Invisible fence repair. With 3 rescue dogs to corral, Brian arrived, like Superman, next day. He was expert in the repair, professional and a pleasure to do business with. We highly recommend IdealDog for all types of pet fence work.

Joseph K. | Auburn, MA

Very professional job, my fence was installed in 90 min and dogs have started training. We have been given training and troubleshooting info. I recommend this team for any future work and will recommend them to anyone who is looking to install an electric fence. Great Job!

Christina A. |

We needed a fence to keep our lab safe. Ideal Dog Fences was the best choice for us. The peace of mind this fence has given us is worth it all! Our lab has been gone for some time now, but our Ideal Dog Fence is still going strong. Brian has personally come out to our house to fit our new dogs with collars. Brian helped with the training of our dogs as well. Ideal Dog Fences was the perfect fit for our family!

Amanda S. |

Brian did a great job installing our dog fence. He is extremely knowledgeable and assisted us with training our dogs to learn the boundaries of the invisible fence. We highly recommend ideal dog fences. Our German Shepherd and our Irish setter love to play outside all day and we are so thankful to have peace of mind knowing they will stay home and not run off.

Jonathan G. | Douglas, MA

Needed a fence for large dog that likes visiting neighbors and is not afraid of cars. Ideal fenced nearly one acre around my house including driveway. They responded immediately and performed work on time. (In a snowstorm) During installation they discovered my neighbor had installed electric fence into my property and would interfere with my fence. They removed and reinstalled that portion back into neighbors property at no additional cost. Since installation they have reached out to me inquiring if I need additional training at no cost. Fence worked great and dog was roaming free within a week. Would highly recommend.

Tara T. |

I have had hunting dogs my entire life. We grew up using a 6 foot stockade fence and yet, there was always one dog who managed to scale the fence in chase of a squirrel! I was afraid of using an electric fence because I thought it was inhumane. I was wrong. I installed DogGuard about 15 years ago and I have successfully trained 7 dogs on the system. My dogs never get corrections because they understand their "hunting" zone. The fence allows them complete freedom to run and chase and play. While critics may argue that an electric fence keeps your dogs "in," but doesn't keep coyotes "out," I remind them that coyotes will gladly scale a 6 foot fence to seek prey. Brian has always been prompt and courteous when I have needed any type of service. When installed professionally and dogs trained correctly, an electric fence is the safest and most humane type of enclosure for your dogs.

Lisa G. |

They were very professional. Fantastic to work with.

Gary G. |

I wanted to be able to let my dog play in the yard without having to install a real fence that would cost a fortune and look horrible. I chose Dog Guard after a lot of research and found they had everything I was looking for. The cost was more then fair and their knowledge of the equipment and also the training of the dogs was excellent. They were very accommodating with their schedule to make the install work for my schedule. It is a great benefit to be able to let my dog out in the yard without having to worry that he will leave the yard. He knows where the boundaries are and he stays inside them. I recommend Dog Guard to anyone who is looking to get an invisible dog fence.

They were great called and explained every step. When they showed up they had everything they needed very professional and very personal. Great team. I would recommend them to any family member that needed a dog fence. Company is definitely worth it.

Excellent on time And easy to work with. Brian came twice as it was winter and we were expecting a storm. He did so in order to get wire in the ground prior to freeze. Followed up and returned the following week to finish and provide training. Would highly recommend.
