About Us

Jon Springer
Owner, Invisible Fence Consultant, Trainer, and Technician
As owner of Bozeman Dog Company and Invisible Fence of the Big Sky, I love my work!  For me, it's not a job—it's a passion.  It’s a great joy to provide safety for your pets and peace of mind for you. I enjoy making friends with the many, many pets I meet, helping them to learn new boundaries. I very much enjoy meeting and working with the people who want the very best for their pet(s)—the best training, technology, service and support. My wife and I have been Montana residents since 1987, and as family business owners we're in it for the long haul. Our mission is to make life with your pet(s) more enjoyable!  We hope you’ll allow us the opportunity to do so.
Jade Cross
Store Manager, Dog Groomer, Pet Sitter

“Truly an animal lover at heart” is the most common thing I have been described as throughout her life. I have lived with dogs, cats, snakes, poultry, cows, horses, and so many more. In my free time, I enjoys pet sitting, hiking with her dog, volunteering at dog shelters, and anything else she can find that has to do with animals.

I have been professionally dog grooming since 2019 and I am thrilled to further that career here! I have been pet sitting professionally since 2016. I am comfortable with all breeds, shapes, and sizes! I have never turned a dog down and never will! I am here to help with any questions or other animal needs here with Bozeman Dog Company!
