Cut Your Underground Dog Fence Installation Time in HALF & Avoid The Back Breaking Task of Burying Wire.
There is no need to spend a weekend burying the wire underground, or paying some one hundreds of dollars to bury the boundary wire when it can be installed above ground in only a matter of an hour or two. Each Box contains 100 Staples - enough to install 500 feet of wire. Our Pet Fence Stable can be used for any brand of underground pet fence.
Using our Pet Fence Staples you can "Staple" the wire to the ground. Within a matter of 7 - 14 days the root system of your lawn will grow over the wire and hide it completely from view, essentially "Burying" it into the lawn. Not only does this make the installation of your new pet containment systems hassle free, it also eliminates any potential loss of signal that may result from burying the boundary wire under several inches of dirt, not to mention the backaches and blisters it will save you.
Using Dog Fence Staples is Quick & Easy
It is that simple.
You have no need to worry about people tripping over the wire because it is completely flush to the ground and will be completely hidden within 7-10 days. You also do not need to worry about your lawnmower cutting the wire as the blades will never get anywhere near the wire. Nobody cuts their lawns to shorter than an inch, with the vast majority of people keeping them at 2" - 3" inches, the wire is flush to the ground and cannot be cut.
These instructions will not be included with your pet fence. You should print this page if you are going to use the Above Ground Installation method.
There are really only a couple of instances where burying the wire is preferable.
If you are putting a fence into a pasture area where livestock such as horses or cattle will frequent, then you will want to bury the wire as their hooves will create breaks. In this case you will want the wire at least 8 - 10 inches underground.
If you frequently have your yard aerated you will want the wire at least 5 - 6 inches in the ground. Although if you do an above ground installation you can simply avoid the exterior boundaries when performing the aeration.

Sorry I did not read the reviews before laying the fence. Although I did not have an edger that worked, the staples helped to secure the wire to the ground as I hoped they would.

Used these to get the boundary wire set up and kept in place until we were sure it was how/where we wanted it. They probably could have kept it down permanently but we had access to a heavy duty edger and decided to put the wire underground once we were happy with the placement. Solid, heavy-duty quality. Will surely re-use them for other landscape purposes.

Didn't use this brand, but as an overall approach to invisible fences this works great vs. burying. Had mine in for over a year now and no issues.

The landscape staples you can buy at the big box stores are fine for landscape projects, but for installing the dog wire these are the only staples to use. I have rocky ground and these don't bend and become useless. If I find an area that they just won't go in, I move over a few inches and then they do.

We live on a busy road. It only took one encounter with the
shock and she is a different dog. We no longer worry
about her being outside. She even stays 5 feet away from the
We have recommended it to everyone with dogs.

I got these to run my wire on the ground. I had it all laid out ( a 1000 feet ) and running in 1 hour. It was the easiest way. Buy them when you get your kit because they don't come with it.

Would have given a 5 but these staples don't work so good in rocky soil where there may only be an inch or two of topsoil. Was still able to use them but bent several rendering them useless. For more normal yards this would be a breeze.

Lay the wire down on ground, use staples to anchor, only recommendation is 1 per yard

I already have the above ground set-up but w/o the staples. We experience (not many) but a few issues with wire displacement due to weather and out neighbor constantly/accidentally clipping the wire with their lawn tools. We are definetly doing this. Not sure why we didnt think of it before? Anyone who decides to do above ground set-up should purchase the staples. Wire set-up doesn't take long but there may be spots that are inconvenient to get to, the staples will assure proper wire placement.
