You walk home to see the garbage ripped open, a door that’s been pushed and snuck through, or a couch that’s been torn to shreds. You look down and see the culprit staring back up at you- your dog. While you can’t stay mad, you want a way to keep this from happening again. The Pet Guardian is an easy-to-use, easy-to-install, cost effective way to keep your furry little friends safe. A couch ripped or a garbage bag torn open may seem like the worst mess, but your dog can do a lot of harm to themselves ingesting things that are unsafe. The Pet Guardian provides peace of mind knowing that your furry little friend won’t be able to get into trouble while you’re away, leaving nothing but tail wags and kisses for when you get home.
