A History in Pet Containment
From Jasper the door dashing shepherd mix, their very first family pet in the 70’s, and Brandy the Boxer who liked to sneak off and run down the street, to the notorious Ziggy the fence-climbing Husky, Jeff and Bob have experienced and shared the same anxiety in caring for their pet’s safety as you. Over the years they’ve extensively searched for the best solution to keep their furry family members at home. After much trial and error, they eventually discovered that only electronic dog fences offered the flexibility, affordability and ease of use that they had been looking for.
Having experience with part-time ‘professionals’ and self-installation attempts, they learned two very important lessons. First, not all fencing systems are created equal. And second, every property and pet is different, requiring a customized approach to each installation along with proper training to ensure the comfort and happiness of the dog.
Jeff realized his desire to help others with their pet containment woes could be fulfilled when he found an opportunity to begin a career working with pets and their owners. In 1994 he joined a national pet brand in Columbus, Ohio. While enjoying a very successful 8 years there, along with earning two national sales awards, he ultimately found the brand to be lacking in some qualities he considered to be important for his customers. In 2002 he found a like-minded manufacturing partner in Pet Stop Pet Fencing Systems that allowed him to start his own business, so he headed south to join Bob and his family. Pet Stop South Florida was born, and they have never looked back.
