I’m Debbie Andres, the founder of Dig Your Dog and I’ll tell you straight up – I’ve never had a career in dog fence installation and I’ve never worked for any kind of pet company. My background is in the healthcare industry; specifically, I used to work with premature babies.
But dogs have been a part of my life as far back as I can remember. When I was a kid we had a black lab named Skipper and oh, how I loved that dog! When my parents bought him for us they had one condition: he had to stay outside. We didn’t have a fence and part of our yard bordered a busy highway so that meant Skipper had to be tied up whenever we weren’t out there with him.
I never really thought about it at the time; I was a kid and that was just the way things were. Besides — electric dog fences hadn’t even been invented back then! 😉 But now that I’m older I realize how much better it would have been for Skipper if we would have had the option of an electric dog fence. He could have had full run of the yard and we wouldn’t have had to worry about his safety.
So my passion to keep dogs safe and secure while at the same time giving them freedom to run around and play in their own yard led me to research ways to contain dogs. Ones that were safe and cost effective so the average person could afford it, no matter how many dogs they had.
And that’s how Dig Your Dog was born. It’s definitely a labor of love, driven by my desire to help people and keep all our furry friends safe.
One other thing you should know about me…I’m a self-proclaimed research fanatic. My family and friends would say I research things to death before I buy — like the time it took me 6 months to research a car I bought.
But I’ve been that way all my life and it’s always made me confident in my buying decisions and satisfied with the results. So I’ve taken my flair for research and used it to write the in-depth dog fence reviews you’ll find here on my site.
One of my goals is to save you the time and hassle of having to explore every little detail about electric dog fences. So I’ll do all the leg work for you and take the guessing out of the equation. I’ll examine every angle of buying a dog fence — from nose to tail 😉 — so that you don’t have to.
There are a lot of excellent pet containment systems out there and I’ve made it my job to sort through all the features, figure out which fences give you the most bang for your buck and help you end up with a fence that works best for you and your canine companion.
So come on in and have a look around. If you don’t find what you’re looking for or if I can be of any assistance please don’t hesitate to use the contact page to get in touch.
