THE PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE COMPANY
A Better Choice for Safer Pets™
PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE was founded nearly fourteen years ago after the owner, Michael Myhal (pictured left with "Buddy") became increasing aware of the growing number of strays and pet fatalities appearing in St Tammany Parish, Louisiana. Over the past decade and through the trials of Katrina, Mike has channeled his knowledge and passion for animals into building a business designed to safely and responsibly save and protect the lives of four-legged family members.
LOCAL, RELIABLE & FANATICAL about Pet Safety
We were not fortunate enough to have children, so like many folks in that situation, we are deeply invested emotionally in our dogs. They are not "like" family, they ARE family. That passion is extended into caring for our clients dogs like they were ours, and unlike and out-of-town company, our clients are our NEIGHBORS. Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is hard enough, but losing one because they dug under or climbed over a fence, ran through an open gate or door, or bolted into traffic is a grief that no one should have to live with. We certainly don't have an exclusive for loving dogs, but no other company has earned the reputation we have for "walking our talk".

#2- We are Full-Time and NOT a franchise
This is not a sideline or a part-time effort for us. Our livelihood is completely derived from our efforts and reputation for keeping pets safe. As a full-time business with a track record of success and service spanning nearly fourteen years now, we have dealt with thousands of clients, their challenges and many, many dogs of every variety, personality and temperment.
As a small business dedicated to service, we had the chance to be tested by Katrina and prove ourselves through all the challenges that she brought with her. (see "Professional Reviews") also see Client Reviews
Why NOT Being a Franchise is Important
Over the years, we've seen formerly good manufacturers often turn and go cheap, and some to go out of business. The latest trend in the largest manufacturers has been to seek more profit by pushing overseas to China to make cheaper components - a trend PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE cannot tolerate or defend. Reliability is everything when it comes to choosing the right company and components to safeguard your pet. We think all components should be built with exacting standards, and every unit should be tested before it goes on your dog. We feel that sampling for quality (testing every +/- ten thousand units at a plant in China) is not acceptable when the life of a four-legged family member is at stake.
Because PETCARE HIDDEN FENCE is not a franchise, we are free to make choices within the industry and provide you with recommendations based on facts and actual experience, rather than marketing hype or obligation. We only enter into agreements with manufacturers that allow us the freedom to change our relationship and recommendations, should a better product come along.
