Meet the DFG Team!
Owner of The Dog Fence Guy!®️
The Dog Fence Guy!®️ was established by Joe Madilia and he has been working to successfully train and contain thousands of dogs since 2000.
In 2008 Joe decided to become a Veteran, Family-Owned, Independent Dog Fencing Contractor. Being a Locally Owned and Operated Business has given them the luxury of focusing on perfecting the pet containment business.
Joe is a 1987 graduate from Hempfield High School, Mount Joy Career and Technology Center, and the Associated Builders And Contractor's as a Journeyman Industrial Electrician with an extensive education in Electronics. He's also been a member of the Building and Industry Association and the IACP.
Joe also spent four years in the United States Marine Corps and served during the Persian Gulf War. It wasn't until 2000 that Joe was able to combine his love for dogs and the pet containment industry.
Over the years, customers have referred to the way Joe trains as the "Dog Whisperer" of pet containment. "He seems to know exactly what the dog is going through, how the dog will react, and how to make the training process as easy as possible with the best possible outcome."
Joe has been certified by the IACP for Advanced Pet Fence Training Certification. This is different than our competitors who "certify" themselves. The IACP is a worldwide organization that is the only THIRD PARTY organization that has a Pet Containment Training Certification process as of 2007.
In summary, it's their goal to completely satisfy all their customers with their pet containment needs. The one goal we live by is to:
Know the business and do it better than anyone else.
