About Us

DogWatch of the Gulf Coast

It's all about your dog!

Welcome to DogWatch of the Gulf Coast! My name is Shannon Mathews. My husband, Mark, and I have been the proud owners of your local DogWatch dealership since 2011. We were first introduced to DogWatch in 2003 as customers. We were unaware that professional dog fence installation was even an option until a local landscaper we were working with urged us to consider it. He advised that his experience with his customers was that do-it-yourself systems simply did not work. We followed his advice, and we were so satisfied and impressed that we bought the dealership! As a locally owned and operated family business, we want our neighbors to experience all of the freedoms that come with owning a DogWatch Hidden Fence. Since joining the International Dealer Network in 2011, DogWatch of the Gulf Coast has won Sales Achievement Awards in 2013 and 2014, and DogWatch of Dealer of the Year for 2014. We are dedicated to making 2016 our best year ever!

Our family includes two wonderful children, Manna and Stephen, as well as Mackerel and Meatball, our beautiful Lab/Australian Shepherds. As shepherd mixes, they love to chase the cows on the farm behind our house, but they know exactly where to apply the breaks to stay within their boundaries!

Customer Testimonial

The results have been phenomenal with our three labs. They have learned the boundaries and they do not cross them. The peace of mind and the reduction of stress - on both humans and dogs - has made all the difference in the world.
