About Us

DogWatch of Appalachia & West Virginia

It's all about your dog!

DogWatch of Appalachia and DogWatch of West Virginia are family owned and operated businesses. We have fifteen years of experience in the pet containment industry. We are Rich and April Caron and we are dedicated to helping families keep their beloved pets safe.

We have three sons who are very active in DogWatch. They are Braeden 16, Brennon 14 and BenRylan 11. They enjoy marketing at trade shows and are serious about learning how to train dogs and cats.

We came to DogWatch 15 years ago after several failed attempts to try and contain our Jack Russell terriers (Zoie, Zena & Zara).

We tried several different brands of pet containment systems and nothing would work. Our dogs would figure out how to out smart them all.
While doing research we found DogWatch. We called and found there wasn't a dealer in our area. We asked if we could try the system and install it ourselves. In doing so, we found a wonderful premium product that worked. We were so impressed with how well the DogWatch system contained our pets and kept them safe that we immediately went through the process to become dealers.

Fifteen years later, we are still enjoying our system with our new fur-babies Halo, Lucy and Caesar. It was definitely a change in our lives. We are dedicated in helping you have a wonderful experience as well.

Superior quality and reliability make DogWatch products and services stand out from our competitors. We include expert training for your pet with every installation. We also offer a variety of other indoor and outdoor training products that will make life more enjoyable for both you and your pet.

We've enjoyed the experience so much that we want the same life changing experience for you!

DogWatch is "Simply the Best...No Getting Around it"!
