Don’t forget that when you’re walking your dog during the warmer months, they don’t have the same protection on their feet that you do! 🐶

Make sure to check the temperature before you head outside. If it’s too hot, keep walks short and stick to grassy areas. Do your best to take long walks during the cooler parts of the day such as early morning or evening.

If your pup has cracked or damaged paws from exposure, consider a paw balm, like Mushers or Bag Balm to help moisturize, heal, and protect paw pads.

Happy Holidays to all my friends, colleagues, customers, and your families and doggies!
After 29 years I have reached the point in my life and career with DogWatch of Santa Barbara in which I am retiring. I have had an amazing run and am very grateful for this experience.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the past almost 3 decades. It has been my honor to have been able to help the local Santa Barbara dog community and its families to keep their fur baby family members safe and sound.
I want to thank my wife, Karen, without her I would have never been able to have done this. She has been an amazing support system in every way. I also want to thank my 3 children who have given so generously of their time, weekends and summers. Their willingness to help me when needed, right up to the very last DogWatch installation, putting their own lives and schedules aside, was a godsend for which I am so grateful and blessed.
I also want to thank all the good folks at DogWatch Corp. for their unwavering support over so many years. They gave me the opportunity to support my family and have a great life working with dogs. I appreciate all the good people in shipping, dealer support, marketing, engineering, especially Fred King & Barbara, who built such a fantastic company. Being involved with this company from virtually the beginning has enabled me to see how much it has grown, developed and improved much due to Fred’s relentless drive to produce the best, most pet-friendly as well as consumer-friendly, reliable products out there all while surrounding himself with an incredible team ( You know who you all are).
The Santa Barbara DogWatch Dealership is now in the hands of very capable new owners, Anthony & Blake. They have extensive backgrounds working with dogs and will do fine continuing to support my existing customers.
And last but certainly not least, to all the wonderful family dogs who I have boundary-trained throughout the years, thank you for all the great, fun, and rewarding memories, of letting me provide you with the safety of keeping you on your property and at the same time providing peace of mind for your owners. I will miss you.

Additionally, Kirk has taken courses in proper use of electronic training (e-collars) form Martin Deeley an internationally known dog trainer and expert with remote training collars.

Kirk also regularly trains and mentors new dealers for DogWatch, Inc. as well as instructs and lectures at our National DogWatch Dealer Conferences on all aspects of containment training of all breeds and personalities of dogs on electronic pet fencing.
