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.

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 you'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.
The chart below gives you an idea of how much wire you'll need but keep in mind this may vary depending on the layout of your containment area:
How to Choose / Install a Pet Containment System
Your dog needs exercise. Needs space. You enjoy your dog's freedom in roaming your yard, but you have to protect your dog. Cars pass in the street. Your neighbor doesn't enjoy your dog's freedom at all when your dog wanders into his yard. And you want to keep your dog out of your flowerbeds, or swimming pool, or some other area on your property.
Fences are expensive and make your yard less attractive. Instead, you need a pet containment system. A pet containment system creates an invisible barrier that your dog learns not to pass.
Your pet containment system is a safe, humane way to acclimate your dog to boundaries, but it won't work without you.
Wired Pet Containment Systems
In a wired pet containment system, you bury a wire antenna around the area of enclosure creating a perimeter. A transmitter in your garage generates the perimeter boundary signal and monitors the continuity of the wire. Your dog wears a receiver collar.
If he crosses the boundary created by the wire, he receives corrective stimulation by electric current. By negative reinforcement, your dog learns to stay within the perimeter.
A wired system has the advantage of flexibility. You lay it out to fit your own individual yard. It can be large or small. It can be any shape. You can enclose your yard, then you can enclose areas within your yard, such as a flowerbed or tool shed.
