The Pet Boundary – Heavy Duty Kit – 1000 Feet includes everything you need to enclose up to 1 acre. The kit includes a 1,000 foot roll of wire, 100 flags, and 2 waterproof fence splices. The wire is a heavy duty solid core pet fence wire. It comes in several different gauges – 14, 16, 18, and 20. The wire can be used in a variety of terrains including rocky conditions and cold weather climates. The flags work as visual aids for you and your dog to mark the fence boundaries. They can be removed when the boundary areas are known. The fence splices are used to connect two wires together.
Electric dog fences generally comes with factory grade wire. It is usually the 20-gauge (thinnest) wire. It could be one of the other gauges – 18-gauge, 16-gauge, or 14-gauge (thickest) wire. Most professionally installed electric dog fences uses the heavier gauge wires (14, 16, or 18). The factory grade wire is of medium quality and is lighter weight (which keeps the shipping costs down). This wire will work just fine. But It does not stand up to the elements are well as the professional grade wire. The vinyl wire coating on the factory grade wire can be prone to cracks. Over time it exposes the copper leaving the wire susceptible to damage.
If you are replacing a section of your existing fence or installing a new system from scratch in your yard, you can easily find a relatively inexpensive and compatible wire for your project. When deciding on the wire to use regardless of the gauge. You should choose only a solid insulated wire rated for burial preferably polyethylene or plastic coated works best. All of our wire use these coatings for maximum performance.
The initial cost of heavy duty grade wire is a bit more than manufacturer grade wire. But there are many benefits to choosing heavy duty wire for your dog fence. It holds up better to freezing conditions, sunlight exposure, contraction and expansion of the ground. Also water exposure and general wear and tear. The long term savings in time and replacement makes the heavier duty wire a much better investment.
