Keith G. | East Peoria, IL

Just when you thought there wasn't a good customer focused are lucky to find Dog Guard Illinois and Iowa. I retired from the Air Force and moved to Peoria...looked at their reviews to handle my three dogs and I couldn't be happier. If I owned a company, I would model this one...this is a FULL service company, they don't take your money and run...they become your partner in keeping your pets safe. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Robyn G. | Bradford, IL

Top notch from the start! I must admit I stumbled upon Vicki and Greg via a google search for a local pet fence installer. We had invisible fence at our old house and thought it was ok. Dog Guard blows it away. Better product, much better warranty, and amazing customer service. Vicki came out promptly after we decided on moving forward. She and Greg were out in the cold laying the wire above ground to get us started. They will come back to bury in the spring. The best part is that Vicki worked with the dogs before they left to get the training started. Much less for us to worry about as we are already very busy with 3 active young kiddos.

Rachel B. | Eureka, IL

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Dog Guard a few weeks ago, and we are both very happy with their services. The system works great, and our puppy is very happy that he can run freely now. They did a great job at answering any questions we had, explaining the system, and training our puppy. They made sure we were comfortable with the system and training steps before they left. Definitely a business I would recommend to my family and friends. Thank you for all your hard work!

Phyllis M. | East Peoria, IL

I love the fencing and my dog learned very quickly what her boundaries were. Love it.

Mike S. | Sterling, IL

This couple is great to work with - totally dedicated to helping our dog learn how to react to the electronic pet fence. He's never gone out of the boundaries since they trained him!

Michelle K. J. | East Peoria, IL

Greg and Vicki certainly know their stuff! Our Sheltie, Rizzo, caught on quickly! We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice of Dog Guard!

Lyndsay G. | Heyworth, IL

Greg and Vicki are the best! So friendly and they really know their stuff. They explained everything to me and my husband and took the time to help train our pup. These are the people you want to contact if you want to install a fence! 💞🐶

Lori A. S. | Princeton, IL

Vicki and Greg are the Best! Our Golden, Rizzo fell in love with them immediately! They are extremely helpful and very knowledgeable.

Lisa H. | DeWitt, IA

We are thrilled with the product, service, and customer service. Vicki & Greg were GREAT to work with. They were professional and very kind and caring to us and our sweet Molly. Only 2nd day and Molly is doing great and safely confined in her own yard. We would highly recommend this product and the service of Vicki & Greg.

Diann E. | Morrison, IL

Vicki and Greg are the best with the whole process from quotes to training and they have awesome personalities to go with the business.....I only wish I knew about them a long time ago.. We will have them back again and I recommend them to everyone.. Call them first and you won't call anyone else.... You will love them and their product.. Your dogs will too... Mine sure do...(she has good treats)....

Steve S. | Shirley, IL

Vicki and Greg installed their fencing for me in a 4 acre perimeter around my farm for my young Collie. They are TOP NOTCH and do a wonderful job. Vicki also stays and provides training for both the dog and owner. A++++++++++++++++++++++ Folks!!

Heather S. | Cuba, IL

Having Greg and Vicki install the underground fence was the best choice we could've made. We lost a dog to our busy road and ended up adopting 2- 5 month old brother's from a rescue. Vicki did an excellent job training the boys and me. We've had it for 3 weeks and not once have they tried to leave the yard. I've had friends walk by and tell me later how they barked at them but not once came close to their boundary. I just started letting them out without supervision and it's been amazing. I highly recommend Vicki and Greg to anyone who wants the luxury of not worrying about their dogs safety while still being able to enjoy the outdoors. Thank you!

David N. | Peoria, IL

Vicki and Greg were great during installation. And then, the day they left our lawn people pulled out all of our flags :( Vicki came all the way back to Peoria, at no additional charge, to replace all of the flags because she thought it was that important that they were positioned in the right place. Can't find that type of customer service anymore. I would strongly recommend them for anyone who needs a dog fence!

Dan P. | Biggsville, IL

Perfect solution for our rural setting near a highway. Professional installation, training and a quality product. Our dog, Whiskey, has never been happier outside since he is no longer on a tie out.

Bruce B. | Burlington, IA

Vicki and Greg were prompt and professional from the very beginning. They gave us a great estimate in a timely manner and were at our house for the install exactly when they said they would be. It was a true pleasure working with them!

Becky B. | Davenport, IA

Vicki and Greg are the best! Vicki came and to the house beforehand to give us options on how to place the fence. She is so kind and a true dog owner. We are so happy with our fence and we will recommend them to everyone.

April W. | Mapleton, IL

Our two boxers love their new freedom. they also love that they can play outside now more and dont have to worry about getting loose. They learned quickly and Vicki was great to work with. Would highly recommend Dog Guard!

Amy K. B. | Argyle, IA

Vicki and Greg were wonderful to work with, very helpful and took their time with the dogs and I. Such a relief to not have to worry anymore about where my dogs are but still able to be outside when it's nice. Wish I'd done this years ago!!

Kayla P. | Geneseo, IL

Highly recommended! Vicki and Greg are amazing; they go above and beyond. They make sure your dog is trained, go over everything with you, and answer any questions before they leave. Very caring and wonderful people and business!!

Michael G. | Morton, IL

Great product and service from start to finish. Would highly recommend to anyone

Jane R. | Tampico, IL

These people were very professional and organized. They spent a considerable amount of time training our puppy and us. The result is a puppy who knows his boundaries. Our overall experience with this business was very pleasant.

Kayla B. | Metamora, IL

Vicki and Greg were amazing and made it through our crazy timber yard! Our dogs are loving their extended time outside since the fence was put it!! We appreciate it so very much! Thanks again ❤️🐶

Kathy J. | Alexis, IL

Wonderful folks to work with.

Fred G. | Keokuk, IA

Vicki is very knowledgeable and provided prompt and efficient service for our installation and training of our dog.

Valli A. S. | Macomb, IL

Otto is so happy to be off his leash thanks so much Dog guard. I had my doubts that this would keep Otto in my yard do to the fact he is a high energy German Shepherd puppy but it really works. Not only does it make life outside easier Otto is behaving better inside since he is burning off all of his energy outside.I would highly recommend . Thanks Vicki & Greg and Terra

Kerry L. | Morrison, IL

High recommend!! This was by far the best decision we have ever made. It is so nice to be able to let our 3 dogs out and not worry about them running off. Vicki and Greg were absolutely amazing to work with and very informative. Can’t believe we didn’t have Dog Guard installed sooner. 🐶🐶🐶

Patrick S. | Wheatland, IA

Great service, very accommodating. Vicki and Greg are great people to work with.

Kevin F. | Metamora, IL

Highly recommend and great customer service!!!

Michael M. | Fort Madison, IA

Vicki and Greg are awesome. From the installation, to the training and the amazing follow up customer service, everything is top notch. You could not ask for better people.

Carlos P. | Coal Valley, IL

Absolutely the best customer experience from Vicki and Greg. Quick response time, great price, and clearly understood my issue and fixed my problem. Very professional and they know their stuff. I would recommend them to everyone. Great work guys and it was nice to talk to you!!!!

Josh U. | Morrison, IL


Heather A. | Farmington, IA

Very pleasant to work with and willing to come back anytime if needed!

Laurie M. | Pekin, IL

We are so pleased with our experience with Dog Guard and Greg and Vicki. Our dog Shastah loves that she is able to be off of her leash safely and the whole process was so easy. Greg and Vicki are very knowledgeable about the product and trained our dog in such a short period of time. They gave us instructions on how to work with Shastah and were there for us if we had any questions. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. They were great!!!

Nancy T. | Cambridge, IL

Vicki and Greg were the Best!!! They came right out to give us a quote and within a week we are all set up!!! So far so good!!! Such a relief to know they are safe and sound and able to have plenty of room to play :):)

Michelle G. | Geneseo, IL

Absolutely terrific customer service!! Vicki and Greg were great and very personable. From the first day they came out to give us an estimate to the day of installation every question and concern we had was answered. It didn't stop there....Vicki continued to call and check to see how things were going. The out of sight fencing has exceeded our expectations and our sweet lab Maggy(whom loved Vicki too :) has stayed within her boundaries! The freedom it gives her to run & play safely and the peace of mind for us is priceless!

Danny C. | Chillicothe, IL

The personalized customer service that Vicki & Greg provide is great. We called for an estimate 9/28/16 and Vicky came out the next day and provided an estimate, along with explaining how the system works. They installed the Guard Dog system on the following Tuesday, 10/4/16 and began the training. Vicki has been available anytime we call with questions. We are still in the training process with our 10 month old Samoyed's, Annie & Emma. They caught on very quickly and are feeling more comfortable everyday in their yard. They were escaping our traditional privacy fence and we had to do something to keep them safe. I believe we found the solution with the help of Vicki & Greg. Can't thank you enough!

Rich P. | West Peoria, IL

They did a great job on the install and training!

Marti P. | Peru, IL

We found out about Dog Guard Illinois & Iowa from looking on Craig's List. We are so glad that we found it. Vicki and her husband were so amazing to work with. Our dog, Zues, caught on quickly to the training and within a month, he was completely trained. I would highly recommend Dog Guard to anyone who is wanting to keep their pet safe. One quick other thing I would like to mention was how affordable it was compared to a fence. Thanks Dog Guard for keeping Zues safe.

Easy scheduling.

Shylah W. | Sublette, IL

Today is our first day with our new out of sight fencing, so we are still learning but I wanted to give a 5 star rating for the awesome experience so far!!! First off, Vicki is so sweet! Dog Guard was recommended by another friend after we moved out to the country and since day one of me contacting she has answered every one of my million questions!! She came out to quote us and after our landlord approved to help with the cost, came out to REQUOTE our land for the second time w/changes. She returns calls promptly and ensures every thing is taken care of prior to installation!! This morning was our install date!! Vicki and Greg are extremely great to work with and the pups did great training. After a nice long break after learning the boundaries, I went out again and walked the area as instructed. Only once did either of my pups get a warning. They have been outside all day with me and have been very receptive to the training given!! I'm so thrilled and it's only day one!!! Thank you so so much Vicki and Greg!!

Tammy R. | Pekin, IL

We were heartbroken when our 14 year old lab passed away in December of 2014. We found a rescue pup in January and traveled to Iowa to pick her up. Our new home is in a subdivision that does not allow privacy or chain link fencing and we live on a busy street. We found Vicki and Greg's website while we were looking at underground fencing options. We called them and they came out to estimate the cost and explain how it works. They were so patient with us and explained everything. We knew that underground fencing was right for us and our new pup, Bella. They put the wire in even though it was freezing cold in January. Vicki came back on another cold day and trained Bella on the fence. She was incredibly kind and patient considering Bella did not have the best doggie manners. Bella learned the new system instantly and she has never crossed out of the yard once. We had a instance where Bella chewed up her collar We called Vicki and Greg. They went out of their way (they were traveling home from an installation) and met us to repair Bella's collar. Vicki and Greg are two of the kindest people we have ever met and we could tell they truly care about keeping our pet safe! We love our underground fence and so does Bella! It's the perfect choice for us and our new lab/beagle pup, Bella!

Colin R. | Mapleton, IL

Kristen P. | Bloomington, IL

They are the best! So friendly, on time and fast installation. We feel they go above and beyond to provide excellent service and make sure you and your dog are comfortable and confident before they leave. We will recommend their business to all our friends looking for underground fencing!

Margaret J. | Princeton, IL

Fast installation and more than willing to answer all my questions. Vicki calls to make sure the dogs are doing good and to make sure we are all happy. I would recommend to anyone that owns dogs!

Jeanne S. | Fulton, IL

It has been such a peace of mind having Dog guard for our 2 dogs! They can run around in the yard and we have no worries!

Charles E. | Pekin, IL

Stephanie P. H. | Peoria, IL

We have had such a wonderful experience with our fence. Vicki and Greg have been so nice and will do whatever it takes to give their customers great service. We love that we don't have to worry about our dog running off or getting hit by a car, and now he is so happy to be able to play and run in the yard. I highly recommend Dog Guard!

Heidi J. S. | Koahoka, MO

This fence is well worth the money! Puts my mind at ease knowing they will stay in our yard! Highly recommend!

Tony W. |

Vicki and Greg did an amazing job both installing the fence and training Daisy ....she absolutely loves her new found freedom in our yard . Very kind people who care very much about your pet ...enough to follow up after to make sure all is ok and all is going well and as it should be . Would highly recommend them to anyone in the market !!

Becky B. |

Excellent training of dog and installation. It has only been four days and our dog has not strayed out of our yard. I highly recommend them for their services.

Kimberly K. |

From the first phone call I knew we wanted to go with Dog Guard. Vickie was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with the entire process. The install was quick and you can't even tell where the wire was dug in. Highly recommend this company for underground fence!

Kelly P. |

Called about Dog Guard and spoke with Vicki. She impressed me from the start! Answered all my questions and made my appointment to install. She and Greg arrived on appointment day and began. Immediately. Very friendly, informative, professional. Greg did an amazing job with installation and Vicki spent time assisting Greg and then spent time with my little Valentino training him on on his established boundaries. They are a wonderful couple! They completed their install, but did not depart until they were sure I was comfortable with it all and questions were answered. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to fence their pet invisibly. You won’t be disappointed!

Jessica D. |

We are so happy with our fence from Dog Guard! It has kept our German Short Hair Pointer in our yard, even when tempted by a deer dashing through two night ago! She chased it to just before her boundary and sat down at that point and just stared at it as it made it’s was up the street. Incredible product, incredible company and incredible people! Thank you for making our life so much easier!

Jennifer L. |

Excellent customer service, fast and professional installation, and thorough training for our large dog. It was a wonderful experience for all of us, but especially for Flip and the boys. The boys loved getting to help with the training, and Flip is loving having much more freedom in the yard. Vicki and Greg exceeded our expectations and we're so glad to be new members of the Dog Guard family!

Christina S. |

My husband and I had Dog Guard installed a couple of weeks ago. Our dog was roaming a little too far from home and we were not comfortable with that. The owners were very nice and professional. They called my husband to ensure Duke was doing well with his new boundaries. We had almost 2 acres installed. Installation was quick. We feel better knowing that Duke is not leaving our property. We would definitely recommend Dog Guard to everybody.

Stephanie S. |

We were amazed how quickly the install and training went. We so enjoyed the personal touch by Greg and Vicki! They are wonderful and they do an amazing job! We highly recommend working with them!

Brittany S. |

Cyrus was awesome with our install and the training went great with our very energetic dogs.

Absolutely great, we called to get a quote and they were there within a few days installing it and training our puppy! We love it, it is such a relief not having to worry about her getting on the road anymore!

Wade Z. |


Dani R. |

Vicki and Greg were the best to work with and took their time training our dogs. I am so impressed wth their service and would highly recommend them. They don't just put up the fence and leave, never to be heard from again-they follow up with you and guarantee to be there if you have any questions.
