18 Gauge WireÂ Boundary Kit, 1000 Foot, 100 Boundary Flags, 2 Splices Dog Fence Wire By Grain Valley
Grain Valley Dog Fence Wire is designed to protect your in-ground electric dog fence from wire breaks. Wire breaks are the number one problem that people have with their dog fence system. When your wire breaks, your dog becomes unprotected. As far as dog fence transmitters go, most do not have a problem with breaking or malfunctioning. On the other hand, the factory-grade wire that manufacturers package in their DIY dog fence kits is very thin and low in quality. Although this cheap wire will transmit a signal and work fine for a little while, the thin vinyl jacket isn't enough to protect the wire from breaking or corrosion over time.
When a wire breaks, it becomes a time-consuming hassle, particularly in larger installations. In order to fix the wire break, you have to locate the broken section, cut it out, and splice in a new piece of wire.
No matter the terrain you are enclosing- we have the heavy-duty wire you will need. These 1000-foot rolls are enough wire to enclose up to 1 to the acre. We recommend 18 gauge wire in any areas where the wire may experience wear and tear such as rocky conditions or cold weather climates.
Electric dog fences usually come with 20-gauge- 18-gauge- 16-gauge- or 14-gauge wire. The 20-gauge wire with a vinyl coating is what you will find in most pre-packaged do-it-yourself fencing kits. Most professionally installed systems use the more substantial 14- 16 or 18 gauge wire. Whether youâ€™re replacing a section of your existing fence or wiring your yard from scratch- you can easily find a relatively inexpensive and compatible wire for your project. Regardless of 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.

How To Install An Invisible Dog Fence
Electronic pet fences can, without a doubt, come in handy for pet owners who would like to either train their dogs or ensure that they don't leave the safe perimeter of their homes. The system is composed of a transmitter and the actual fence, although there are several variants to give some thought to these days, and we'll do our best at detailing them below.Â
A new electronic dog fence establishes a barrier that's invisible. Your dog won't be able to visualize the boundaries he or she isn't supposed to cross, but the pet will feel a stimulus depending on the electronic collar that the fence needs to be associated with. In terms of collars, you can opt for those that do deliver electronic shocks, or you can go for the milder and more humane alternative, a model that only delivers vibrations and sounds.
Electronic containment is not possible under certain circumstances. If your dog has any health problems, particularly those which involve neurological disorders, we strongly advise you to utilize other types of containment methods. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have a talk with a vet before deciding on a particular one.
If you've decided to purchase an invisible dog fence that actually comes with a wire, you need to know how much you have at your disposal. Typical systems usually come with about 500 feet of wire. The first thing you must do is plot your yard so as to know where you are going to install the fence. Before burying the wires, it is a good idea to test them to ensure that they are working properly. It would be inconvenient to have to dig them up and fix them if they're malfunctioning.Â
Some other basics you ought to bear in mind range from the fact that you should not place your transmitter in a shed or barn to the fact that running the wire along with television cables or near satellite dishes is bad.
As for the installation per se, it really does depend on the model you have purchased. However, you need to use the graph paper plot you created and then lay the wire along your boundaries. Try to keep the wire as clean as possible and as far from other objects as you can.
Once youâ€™ve run the wire along with those limits, connect the ends of the wires and turn the whole system on. Following this procedure, you need to ensure that the collar is working and that it emits an audible alert as you got closer to the boundary.
After you're convinced that everything is up and running, what you need to do is cut a trench along your boundary. The depth can vary from 1 to 3 inches depending on the model you've purchased. Sometimes, you may have to splice the wires to ensure that the yard gets enough. Always make sure to remain safe if you do this.
Given that a variety of pet containment systems might be affected by power surges or lightning strikes, we suggest grounding the entirety of the system.
