Dana G. |

“Getting the Dog Guard of Central PA underground fence was the best decision we could have made. Our pups love it! They have the freedom to run and do their zoomies, hang out with family, and not be tethered. They know the boundaries and stay away from them even when they have distractions (other animals, cars, etc). My only regret is that I did not have this system sooner for my older dogs!”

Dave G. |

“Dog Guard of Central PA did a great job in installing the electric dog fence around our total yard. Ervin Zook did the complete installation and training of our dog, Luna, in about 3-4 hours. Ervin did a professional job and was great with Luna. Very knowledgeable about the system and explaining what to watch for when operating the system. The price was very fair when compared to other fence companies.”

Careen H. |

“I can't say enough positive things about both Ervin and Dog Guard. The system worked perfectly for our German Shepherd puppy. It was reasonably priced, installed on time and the training provided was perfect. Ervin even came back and re-wired our yard in some places after I realized I wanted it pushed back a bit so our pup could have more room to roam. I would highly recommend them both to anyone considering an invisible fencing system.”

We had a great experience with Dog Guard. The installation was fast, my dog responded very quickly to the fencing, and the training was easy! After trying Halo, Pet Safe, and other dog training equipment, I have been overwhelmed by how much I prefer this and feel like my dog is safe and contained!

Rebekah W. |

We are very satisfied with our fence! We have 4 dogs, and they all learned their boundaries quickly. When Ervin set up the fence, he took the time to train each dog individually and made sure we knew how everything works. When you need anything, Ervin comes very promptly to take care of it. I definitely recommend Dog Guard.

Harriet D. |

Just wonderful. Met every need. Great to work with. My dogs are so secure. I love the electric fence. I have had excellent customer service. Would do it again with this company!

Nikki L. |

I have had the underground fence for 3 years. It still works fantastic. I would definitely recommend this company! They are very prompt if you have an issue!

Pam D. |

Ervin was amazing to deal with! Answered promptly and was able to have our fence installed within a week of talking to him! Answered every one of our questions….and we had a lot lol! So great with our dog Zoey and so wonderful to us! I would absolutely recommend!!!

Brooke W. |

I highly recommend Dog Guard!! Ervin was absolutely amazing with my dog and answered every question I had! He was very patient and took the time to train my dog thoroughly. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to go through Dog Guard. Thank you for everything!! Over a year and a half later, and my dog has been fantastic! Knows exactly where the line is and I couldn’t be happier for the way Ervin trained my dog, he truly is a lifesaver! If you're questioning whether you should do it or not, do it! And do it with dog guard! You will not regret it!

Gwen B. |

We had a break in our line and Ervin came out RIGHT AWAY found it and fixed it! Great service!!

Steve E. |

We love our Dog Guard underground fence, this has allowed us to enjoy our time outside with the dogs. Our beagle loves that she can run and play freely throughout the fenced area. Ervin was very informative and answered all the questions we had. We have a very small pom also and I liked that we could custom the system to meet both dog's needs. Very Satisfied.

Kelly B. |

We love our fence! We have two dogs, one of which is large and very determined. After trying several Amazon products, I did not think we would find anything that would keep her in the yard. We live in the woods and our dogs chased deer miles away from the house, sometimes taking hours to find them. Ervin worked with her and tried different collar strengths til he found the perfect one for her. We have had zero escapes and we've had our fence for about a year now. We could not be happier. I am very confident to just leave the door open and let them run. They have NEVER left the fenced-in area since Dog Guard installed our underground fence.

Andrew B. |

Ervin and the Dog Guard system have been great. The install was clean and the system is running great, a year now. Our recent rescue took a little training and Ervin gave us lots of instruction and support. After a few weeks she was running freely and confidently around the yard with her older brother and sometimes we forget to put the collar on and well... she still stays in the yard even with the taunting squirrels.

Kevan S. | Orwigsburg, PA

Ervin was highly regarded in the reviews I saw when trying to decide on the type of fence for our 2 dogs. They lived up to the hype. Ervin was very informative and patient with us and our dogs. They responded so well to his teaching and we are very happy with Dog Guard!

Michelle Z. | Danville, PA

Ervin is very professional, efficient, and did a good job at explaining everything about the fence. Also, took time to train our dog. Highly recommend him.

Debra E. |

Dog Guard of Central Pa is a very friendly family owned business. They are professional and work well with the family. Our 7 month old puppy is very skittish but she adjusted very quickly to the invisible fence and we can enjoy freedom in our yard knowing she will not leave and does not need leash so she can freely play. I highly recommend Ervin Zook and their dog guard system. Work is very neat no mess afterwards.

Annette T. | Centre Hall, PA

I have three headstrong dogs (2 terriers and a sheltie). With Ervin’s help and meticulous training, after only 24 hours we are proud to say that the dogs are behaving well even with temptation! Ervin was quite punctual and was very kind to my dogs. I will highly recommend Ervin and Dog Guard.

Wesley F. | Berwyn, PA

Ervin was referred by a friend that said he was very nice and easy to work with. She wasn't wrong. Ervin was quick to respond to my initial inquiry as well as scheduling me for the install. Install was a fast process as well and he was very respectful of my time and schedule. I had a large area done and he was done very quickly even with taking extra time to help with training. Great Experience overall! My Puppy is loving his new freedom and quickly learned his boundaries with the help of Ervin.

Tanya M. |

Excellent customer service!!! Was scheduled and installed within a week of calling. The no interest financing was fantastic. The follow up after the installation has been wonderful too and the peace of mind knowing your fur babies are safe is priceless. Ervin @ Dog Guard of Central PA is hands down the best in his field.

Ashley S. |

Highly recommend! I submitted a request for a quote and received a phone call from Ervin quickly. He was very informative and friendly on the phone. Once we decided to move forward, scheduling was easy. Ervin arrived on time and we’ve had great success with the fence so far. Ervin was very easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable. Will definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an invisible fence.

Angie F. |

After our dog Zeke got caught in a conibear trap, we had to do something to keep this from happening again... Ervin was there within the week and installed a fence around our perimeter. We now have peace of mind that he won't be where he shouldn't be! Thanks Ervin for the quick service!

Ronald H. |

Ervin was very professional and took the time to train me on the product and processes. He was extremely good with my puppies. He was responsive and understanding of my busy schedule. I would recommend them for anyone that is looking into getting this type of service. A++

Linda L. | Belleville, PA

I recently had the invisible fence installed in my yard. It has changed so much with my dog Tessa, a Golden Bernese. She is happier and I am happier because she has room to run and explore. She is two years old and has lots of energy. Ervin was prompt in returning my calls. He was professional during installation but also personal in working with Tessa and me to teach us how the system works. He wants you and your dog to succeed and enjoy the freedom this brings!

Tia S. |

Ervin was professional and helpful in any questions I had. He trained my aussie puppy and he caught on right away! No need for a lease outside anymore, even on the first day of the invisible fence. I highly recommend Ervin to safely care for you pup/dog.

John Y. | Shavertown, PA

Ervin is great and Dog Guard works incredibly well! Prompt and courteous he returned my homeadvisor inquiry within a half hour. Answered all of my questions and concerns, we installed a week later. Install and training was impeccable- my dogs are safe and secure, knowing their boundaries in only a day or so. Professional service and quality Ervin and Dog Guard is highly recommended!

Maggie V. |

I would highly recommend Dog Guard of Cenrral PA for invisible fence services. Ervin was extremely responsive to my inquiry and provided an estimate within hours of requesting one. He was very accommodating of scheduling the install and was extremely efficient. The training was great and my dogs are now safe and stay in our yard.

Valarie H. | Bellefonte, PA

This fence has been a blessing! Our Rottie pups kept running away. Less than 3 days and they are completely trained and respective to the fence. Very responsive company and willing to work with you and your fur baby in a timely manner! Would totally recommend them to EVERYONE!

Heather E. |

We are so pleased with our decision to go with Ervin and Dog Guard for our invisible fence needs. From the beginning, Ervin was very prompt and professional. The installation was quick and efficient. Ervin trained our puppy to know where the borders are and in no time she picked up on it. It’s a great feeling to have peace of mind that your pet is safe in your yard and can run free. We highly recommend this company.

Candi P. |

I am very pleased with the time of scheduling and the professionalism of Mr Zook. He took time to ensure proper placement of the fence. He also took time with both dogs and family members to help all of us understand the system. We are so happy our fur babies can run and play in a safe environment. Thank you so much for your attention to detail.

Adam W. |

We have a chocolate lab with a lot of energy and we were very skeptical that this system would work, especially when we’ve tried other collars at the highest setting that didn’t even get our dogs attention. When we heard that this system was guaranteed to keep our dog contained we decided to try it out! Ervin was on time and was super nice and professional. He explained the whole process and it was a very quick installation. It’s only been a week and we can’t even see where the line was installed anymore. He also took our dog out with him and trained her in about 15 minutes! We’ve only had one “escape” on the first day and it was quickly corrected. We’re very satisfied and would recommend Ervin to anyone looking for a system that works. We can finally give our dog room to run and burn off energy. Give it a try!

Cristina H. |

We are extremely pleased with our Dog Guard Fence. Our installer, Irvin was very professional and knowledgable of the equipment and service. We would absolutely recommend Irvin and Dog Guard for others.

Gary C. | West Lawn, PA

Erin was quick and reliable reasonably priced .The best way to protect your dog / cat to stay within the boundaries of the yard. I would hire Erin again for another fence. Erin made sure that my dog knew where he could go and not. One flaw is if a dog is on dead run it does not stop any dog . But I give Dog Guard 100% my next business.

Morgan B. |

Great experience! Ervin was kind and seemed to have much knowledge in what he was doing and made us feel good about the entire process. He was sure our dog and I were comfortable with the fencing before he left. Highly recommend!

David L. | Wernersville, PA

We have used Dog Guard for 15 years and love it, we used it for 2 medium size dogs with great results over the past 15 years. Anytime we had an issue it was taken care of quickly, the issues were minor such as batteries, transponder, receiver, the later 2 have life time warranties so no charges. Soon we will be bringing home a new puppy and wanted to change the layout of the dog roaming area in our yard, I contacted Dog Guard and 1 day later Ervin showed up and took care of all our needs and made some great suggestions. He was very friendly, professional and completed the work very quickly. I would highly recommend DG and Ervin's expertise and dedication. Thank you

Todd K. | Leesport, PA

Ervin Zook was very knowledgeable and did a great job!

David G. |

Ervin is a great guy. Explained everything and took his time under miserable conditions. Cold, snow, and wet. Quality work and neatness of job. Also very good with my golden doodle as far as training. Pleasure to do business with Ervin. Would recommend him. That being said, have not had system long enough to recommend equipment since Ervin installed today.

Michelle B. | Mifflintown, PA

So very happy we decided 1. To get an in ground fence and 2. To have it professionally installed. Ervin was very quick and accommodating with finding a day to install our fence and worked with us on where we wanted our boundaries (including through some thick/rocky woods). We have called him with questions and he answers immediately, and is quick to answer any questions or concerns we have had. After the initial 2 days of learning their boundaries, I LOVE the relief I feel to be able to let my dogs out without worrying about them running off or getting hit on the road. This was well worth the money, wish we had installed it even sooner!

Roberta M. | New Bloomfield, PA

very well done. I am very pleased with the work and the freedom that I now have with my Ralphie

Jim |

Ervin exceeded my expectations in all aspects of installation of the Dog Guard system! He returned my call the same day I called him and was at our house the next morning with a proposal. He returned within a couple days to perform the installation. He was very accommodating and did the initial training of our dog, as well as told us how to do subsequent training. Within a few days, our dog was adequately trained and we removed flags as instructed. We could not be more satisfied with the service Ervin provided!

Eric L. | Newport, PA

Very prompt scheduling appointment and for installation. Took time to answer questions and followed up twice after install. Highly recommend.

Mike B. |

I can't say enough about the services of Ervin Zook at Dog Guard of Central Pa. From the first time I contacted Ervin inquiring about the product and pricing to when he did the installation, the service was first class and very professional. He answered all my questions and concerns and did not rush the installation. He even took time to train our dog and teach us how the product works. Lastly, he followed up twice with me to be sure everything was working properly and that our dog was doing okay. I highly recommend him.

Christina Wilson |

Ervin was great educating me on the fence and how to teach my dogs the boundary line. Installation went smooth, even with my rocky 3 acres that was fenced in. Ervin did a phenomenal job working with my recently adopted chihuahuas, now they can run and play without fear of the road or neighbors dogs.

Tim Price | Portage, PA

Quick installation, friendly, great job explaining everything and helpful hints on the entire trading process.

Samantha Showers |

Super quick to install, took the time to answer all our questions and concerns. He trained our two dogs, stopped back a week later to follow up and make sure everything was good. I would recommend to anyone. We are much happier and our two dogs are much happier getting to run and play.

Annette B. | Pottsville, PA

Ervin Zook, of Dog Guard, was very quick to respond to our request for the invisible fencing. He was prompt and very courteous. He was easy to talk to and explained the process effectively. He even came back to increase the size of our perimeter when we realized we wanted to extend it to cover a larger circumference.

Donald D. | Mchenry, MD

Ervin was very professional, polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. He showed up on time as promised and expeditiously installed the Dog Guard system. This install was at my second residense, so I was familiar with the dog training to get the dog used to his new boundaries. I have a similar system at my main residense. Ervin was very willing to do the training, but I elected to do it myself. My Rottweiler can be a little unpredictable at times. He is very protective of his people and property. I am now going feeling more comfortable with the new fence install. I can highly recommend Ervin and Dog Guard of Central PA.

Kim C. | Schuylkill Haven, PA

We were very pleased with the installation and customer service. Ervin answered all of our questions and helped us work through some training issues with our one Lab who was resistive at first. Since week 2, both of our Labs know their boundaries and have the run of the yard. Since making the adjustments with Ervinâ s help, neither dog has attempted to leave the yard despite many distractions. We highly recommend Ervin and Dog Guard.

Kraig Nace |

EXCELLENT AND PROMPT SERVICE!!! I have a 15 year-old Invisible Fence system (Avoid Invisible Fence at all costs!) that had a break in the line so we found Dog Guard of Central PA via Google. As it turned out, they are local and family-owned and operated!!! We called late this morning and they were here by 4 this afternoon!! In the rain, they found the break, relocated the wire, repaired the break, tested all of our collars, installed flags, and helped us with the training plan for our new puppy arriving this week!! I could not have asked for better service and response...and I'm a picky customer! I recommend and endorse Dog Guard of Central PA completely and without a doubt!! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!

Donald S. | Lilly, PA

Answer every question I threw at him--it was many. Professional and explain clearly how the system worked. The price was so affordable and much price than the competition who could not give me a break down of the expenses. Train my two dogs with in a few hours and I no longer fear my dogs will be hit my traffic flying by. What a great peace of mind for our family knowing our pets are safe in our yard--and they have the freedom to run. Thank You.

Kevin M. | Frackville, PA

Ervin was very professional and explained everything about the system completely so I had no questions to ask about it. The price is very affordable and it was installed and my Noel trained in a matter of a few hours. I no longer have to worry about Noel getting out of the yard and getting hurt. If you're looking for an invisible fence for your fur babies, I highly recommend Dog Guard of Central PA.

Donna P. | Millersburg, PA

Ervin was fantastic to work with! His response was very quick. I highly recommend him!

Brad S. | Beech Creek, PA

If you're in need of a fence, no need to contact anyone else other than Dog Guard. From the initial inquiry to the completion of the install, the level of customer service, knowledge and professionalism is top notch. Installation was quick and the cost is very reasonable. Service doesn't stop after the install. Ervin has been in contact multiple times to make sure we're satisfied and to check on the puppies. I HIGHLY recommend Dog Guard of Central PA.

Karlee J. | Huntingdon, PA

Ervin was very prompt when responding to my inquiries of wanting a fence installed for my 4 Bernedoodle puppies. He reached out to me within an hour and after I gave it some thought I took the offer. He was very accommodating with waiting for my boyfriends and I's schedule to match so we both could be there the day of installation. Ervin was very knowledgeable when we asked questions. And he was very patient and loveable towards our babies. Thank you so much! I would definitely recommend him!

Kristen D. | Port Matilda, PA

Professional and friendly service and a wonderful family owned business. The price, installation and system are just what we hoped for and is working perfectly. Our puppy hasn't left the yard once since the day our fence was installed! Very happy customers!

Steve E. | Everett, PA

We love our Dog Guard underground fence, this has allowed us to enjoy our time outside with the dogs. Our beagle loves that she can run and play freely through out the fenced area. Ervin was very informative and answered all the questions we had. We have a very small pom also and i liked that we could custom the system to meet both dogs needs. Very Satisfied.

Merle B. | Elliottsburg, PA

Ervin was very helpful and did a great job with the install.

Curtis L. | Mount Pleasant, PA

We are extremely happy with our Dog Guard system. We have a Lab that loved to sneak off and head for a busy road, and all of us are more relaxed since she is trained to stay home. Ervin did an excellent job of installation and follow up after the sale, and he is very knowledgeable about the product. Highest recommendation!

Sam F. |

Ervin did an excellent job in installing our underground fence, we have an 8 acre farmette, Ervin fenced in the entire property in a timely manner and he was a pleasure to work with , very professional. Sam F.

Steven Z. | Latrobe, PA

Ervin did an absolutely fantastic job in installing our system for our house. He also worked with our pomeranian and took the time to follow up and make sure everything was working. Highly recommended.
