About Us

DogWatch by Critter Camp

It's all about your dog!

Rick and Donna Edington have been in the pet care industry since 2003, starting out with a boarding kennel in Northern Minnesota.

In 2009, the Edingtons purchased Critter Camp in Iowa and have made it their business to keep pets safe and on their own vacation while their owners are away from home.

Critter Camp is pleased to announce they are an authorized Dealer for DogWatch Hidden Fence Systems. We can help provide dog owners with a safe, yet free to run and roam area for their best buds around their yard. We are proud to offer lifetime warranty on our equipment and customer service second to none.

Rick and Donna are owned by 6 Labrador Retrievers, 2 "change of career" Labrador/Golden service dogs, and camp mascot Emmett. They are lifetime members of the Duluth Retriever Club, AKC Hunt Test judges, former volunteer puppy raisers for Canine Companions for Independence, sponsor of "Winston" a Leader Dog for the Blind service dog, and board members of Fort Dodge's animal shelter Almost Home. We love working with animals because dogs are our lives. We chose DogWatch because DogWatch Hidden Fence is the premium underground fence system on the market today.

In addition to being DogWatch Dealers, we are proud members of the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance. We hope to have the opportunity to help keep your pet safe.
