About Us

DogWatch of Puget Sound

It's all about your dog!

Hi, I am David Van Kirk, the owner-operator of DogWatch of Puget Sound. I came to the Great Pacific North West from the Midwest in 1979 because I think this is an incredible place to live and work. I enjoy the diversity of culture, the natural beauty of the area, the many outdoor activities available and (last but not least) the excitement of the local sports teams.

I became a DogWatch dealer in 2012 after retiring from a long career in health care. I wanted to find something to do that was fulfilling to me and was helpful to others. Becoming a DogWatch dealer was a way to do something that I enjoy while having the feeling of satisfaction that comes from helping solve problems and improving the quality of life for people and their pets.

I represent the DogWatch brand because the quality of the equipment is second to none. There really is no other brand that comes close to the technical innovation, the practicality, the ease of use and the customer service from DogWatch. The FM SafeLink® design, the user friendly features of the transmitter and collars, the 2 year receiver battery life with nonproprietary batteries (verses the 2 to 3 month battery life, and proprietary batteries of the competition) and the lifetime warranty on equipment make DogWatch ‘simply the best.’ I personally offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. I will keep your dog contained or your money back.

I am a truly locally owned business with the backing of an international company, DogWatch Inc. I am responsive to my customers, and take great pride in the quality of my work. I know that there are others you can choose from, however, I am confident that once you have done your research, explored your options, and compared quality, you will choose DogWatch. I am looking forward to being of service to you, making you happy and keeping your pets safe.
