Meet the DFG Team!
Owner of The Dog Fence Guy!®️
In 2008, Joe established a veteran, family-owned, independent dog fencing business, catering to pet owners seeking reliable pet containment solutions. As a locally owned and operated business, The Dog Fence Guy!®️ has been able to concentrate on perfecting pet containment while also providing personalized service to all customers.
Joe, a 1987 graduate from Hempfield High School, Mount Joy Career and Technology Center, and the Associated Builders and Contractors as a Journeyman Industrial Electrician, boasts an extensive education in electronics. He has been an active member of the Building and Industry Association and the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP).
Having spent four years in the United States Marine Corps and serving during the Persian Gulf War, Joe's passion for dogs led him to the pet containment industry in 2000. Over the years, customers have referred to Joe as the “Dog Whisperer” of pet containment, due to his exceptional ability to understand and successfully train dogs. Joe's training methods are focused on understanding the dog's perspective, anticipating their reactions, and making the process as smooth as possible for the best possible outcomes.
In addition, Joe has earned the Advanced Pet Fence Training Certification from the IACP, setting his business apart from competitors who often “certify” themselves. The IACP is a globally recognized organization and, as of 2007, the only third-party institution that offers a Pet Containment Training Certification process.
By choosing The Dog Fence Guy!®️, all prospective and current customers can be confident in the quality and expertise Joe brings to pet containment solutions.
In summary, our primary goal is to ensure complete satisfaction for all customers when it comes to their pet containment needs. The guiding principle that drives us is to know the business inside out and excel at it, surpassing all competitors in the industry. We are dedicated to providing top-notch service and expertise, ensuring the safety and well-being of your pets.
