When you are looking for a hidden underground electric dog fence, we understand it’s because you love your dog. You want to provide a safe place for your pets to get out and exercise and just be dogs. “Dog owners want to have peace of mind, and know their pets are protected.” Greg Smith, dog lover, dog trainer, and owner of Pet Stop Pet Fence Systems of Western Mass, wants that for you too. Greg is at your home for every installation and treats every installation like he is installing it in his own yard!
Greg has been training dogs for over 30 years in basic obedience and competitively. He believes in a very gentle and humane way of training, that’s why 20 years ago, when he needed a pet fence system for his dog Buck, he chose to install the safest and most reliable pet fence system in the market…Pet Stop®. One thing Greg knew when he retired from a 25-year suit and tie career in marketing was, whatever he did with the rest of his working life, he would have to love it. He loves dogs and enjoys training so much he knew that was the direction he needed to go. Greg was so happy with his Pet Stop dog fence system that is was an easy decision for him; he became a Pet Stop dealer and Greg has never looked back.
People often ask Greg for advice when they see him with his happy and very well behaved yellow labs, Abby, Boomer, Sam, and Jag… “It’s simple, dogs of any age can learn so I spend a few minutes most everyday training my dogs. The adage, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is nonsense. Dogs of all ages can learn new things. In fact, dogs are much happier and better citizens when they are learning and have a purpose. When they are puppies, all training I do with them is an enjoyable experience. I find it very beneficial to carry a pocket full of kibble with me. For example, if you run away from a puppy they naturally want to chase after you. If you command “come” or “here” as they approach you, when they get to you, reward them with a kibble treat. They will figure out in a day or two what “come” or “here” means and they will gladly obey. Everything we do is fun and the puppy or adult dog is NEVER disciplined in a negative way! As they get older the kibble isn’t needed.”
In a 10-minute Gentle Steps training session with your dog, 9 minutes and 59 seconds of it will be just playing and having fun. Training your pet on a Pet Stop pet fence system will be a positive learning experience for your beloved pet. Once trained, your dog will have a lifetime of running around your yard just being a happy, safe dog! (or cat)
A Customer Testimonial
The thing that most makes Pet Stop one of the best decisions we have made since bringing home our first puppy is Greg’s service, knowledge, responsiveness and willingness to help out in multiple ways. Pet Stop was a great find for us! The collar and underground fence work great and we have not had any problems at all.
The hardware has many compatible features and can even be programed to be compatible with other systems which really helps out when having friends over that have pups with different systems, or even when we are headed over to a friend’s house that has a different system.
I would recommend Pet Stop of Western Mass to anyone and I welcome any private messages if anyone has questions. I did not know Greg before purchasing the system, but now I almost consider him my dog care consultant.
With regards to installation, Greg handled everything and it was completely hands off for me, I showed him where to go with the system and he told me some best practices and made some meaningful recommendations without any pushy sales tactics (I am a skeptic and will not buy anything from someone who is pushy, Greg is the opposite). The installation was very easy on my yard, a small slice where the wire goes in the ground and very clean. The yard was back to normal within a week or so and now you wouldn’t be able to tell it was even there. We did go through the driveway, which was very cleanly done and sealed the same day.
Again, I would recommend this service and company to anyone. This really is not an advertisement, I am just very happy with the service, when we brought home our puppy everyone was telling us what we “need” to do, it was refreshing with Greg helping us find what we “wanted” to do.Tom Daniel
