What Do School Teachers and Pet Fence Trainers have in common?

Rick and Brent are both local public school teachers and they know educational development can be fun for both the student and the teacher. They also have your loved ones best interest at heart. Pets, like children, are around many natural distractions that can jeopardize their safety. That is why safety and well-being are primary to Rick and Brent, from the schoolyard to the backyard.Class bully or shy pet? With the patience to earn the trust and respect from all students, Durafence can help educate your dog on the electronic fence, no matter the breed, size or personality.

A couple of years ago we had Rick and Brent install a dog fence for us. We were extremely happy with both the product and the work they did to install it… Our dog quickly adapted to her new life within the fence. It was life-changing for us… Since then, we have contacted them several times and they always responded very promptly and helped us with whatever we needed. Last winter our snowplow dug up and broke part of the fence and they quickly came to fix it. About a year ago, we acquired another pup and they lead us down the right path to purchase an additional collar. They have always been very helpful and we couldn't be happier with their services. We would highly recommend them to anyone in the market for an underground dog fence!”

Rick and Brent were even able to customize our application to make it work with our next door neighbor’s PetStop fence with Yard Link.
