Our Story

The Watchdog Breathalyzer Company was created to “Save Lives One Breath At A Time”. Our goal is to help you avoid injury, death, criminal records, jail and financial losses resulting from driving while intoxicated. 

My story is not unusual. In 2003, I had a few drinks over dinner and on my drive home, I was pulled over for not having a front license plate. I view myself as a responsible person and didn’t think I was actually over the legal limit. The police knew better. Failing the police breathalyzer test was the beginning of a painful and embarrassing personal lesson. A humbling night in jail and court ordered mandatory DUI/DWI treatment was just the beginning for me. I felt like such a loser. My lawyer fees, court fees, fines and increased auto insurance premiums have totaled over $31,000 since my DUI/DWI violation. These incredible costs are actually fairly typical in the USA. After this incident, I vowed to take steps to educate others about the perils of driving while intoxicated. This led to the launch of the Watchdog Breathalyzer Company.

Our product offers only the safest and most advanced technology for you and your loved ones. The most important aspect of a breathalyzer is to produce highly accurate and consistent results, which is why we only use Fuel Cell sensors, the same technology used in police devices. Unlike other breathalyzer companies, we do not offer any models with semiconductor sensors since these have proven unreliable and inaccurate. 

We thank you for valuing responsibility, wise judgment and the well being of others!
