SpotOn Virtual Fence Receives Gold Stevie Award

SpotOn Virtual Fence, the world’s first and only dog containment and tracking system, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award in the New Product – Consumer Electronics category in The 18th Annual American Business Awards.

SpotOn was honored because of its groundbreaking use of advanced technology for dogs. Unlike the traditional invisible fence and buried fence systems currently on the market, the SpotOn Virtual Fence lets dog owners set up a virtual containment area wherever they are. The system is also smart, offering satellite tracking in the event that the dog leaves the area as well as the ability to store fences at up to 10 locations. It is the first fence of its kind to incorporate such technology providing highly accurate positioning for containment and tracking purposes. The entire system is a collar and phone app, making it completely portable.

“A virtual smart fence is a great idea and the features of the SpotOn Virtual Fence are a great advancement to what is available today,” shared one judge. “I have used some of the current products [and] technologies and it seems that this innovative offering has tackled the issues of what is available today.”

More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“We are so honored to be named a Gold Stevie Award winner in the New Product category as it’s key validation of the exceptional technology we’ve developed for the pet wearable industry,” said Ken Solinsky, Founder of SpotOn Virtual Fence. “The Stevies are known for honoring some of the greatest American businesses, and our team is incredibly proud to be recognized amongst such notable organizations.”

The American Business Awards are the premier business awards program in the US. All organizations operating in the US are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, August 5. Details about The American Business Awards and the list of 2020 Stevie winners are available at
