Product Description

wire-gauge-chart2.jpgThis is a 1,000 foot roll of Heavy Duty - Solid Core Pet Fence Wire and it's available in Four Thicknesses: 20 Gauge, 18 Gauge, 16 Gauge and 14 Gauge. No matter the terrain you are enclosing, we have the heavy duty wire you will need. These 1,000 foot rolls are enough wire to enclose up to 1 to acre. We recommend Heavy Duty Pet Fence 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 (thinnest), 18-gauge, 16-gauge, or 14-gauge (thickest) 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.

This wire is compatible with all PetSafe®, SportDOG®, Innotek®, Invisible Fence® Brand, Dog Watch® PetStop®, Contain Your pet®, Dog Guard®, Perimeter® Brand, Dogtek®, Dogtra®, Guardian®,  Havahart® and all other brands of in-ground electric dog fence systems.

Factory Grade Wire

This is the wire included in all self-install kits. Regardless of gauge, this wire is of medium quality, lighter weight and keeps shipping and initial costs down. This wire will work but does not hold up to the elements as well as a professional grade wire. The vinyl wire coating is prone to cracks and over time exposes the copper leaving the wire susceptible to damage. This can cause issues that impact the functionality of your dog fence system. Since finding, digging up, and repairing wire breaks can be a tedious job at best, many people prefer to upgrade to a pro-grade wire from the start.

The initial cost of heavy duty grade wire is a bit more than manufacturer grade wire. However, there are many benefits to choosing heavy duty wire for your dog fence. Heavy Duty grade dog fence wire holds up better to freezing conditions, sunlight exposure, contraction and expansion of the ground, water exposure and general wear and tear. The long term savings in time and replacement if you are planning on staying in your home for at least a year or more, makes the heavier duty wire a much better investment.

  1. Best price and quality. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 28th 2016

    I found this on other sites, but so much cheaper her.

  2. Heavy duty wire 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 28th 2016

    This wire is much more robust than the wire that was included with the boundary unit. The insulation is very thick and should hold up well when direct buried.

  3. we've even used it through a creek 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 2nd 2015

    At our last home we wanted our dog to be able to enjoy the creek in our backyard. Since the depth changed drastically depending on the season I called the company for advice. They were so helpful & gave good suggestions for protecting the wire from possible breaks. We installed the wire with staples during the lowest water season & used they're suggestions. It worked great!

  4. Best value I can find for this wire 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 10th 2015

    I have been buying dog containment products from Radio Fence for 10 years. I have never been disappointed. Fast shipping and the prices are lower than any competitor. With proper installation and dog training, my petsafe underground fence has been virtually flawless. I would never consider owning dogs without this system.

  5. great ! ! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 5th 2015

    I had to lay out 3,000 ft of wire, having a 1,000ft roll really made it easier. Plus I love that the wire is now solid, and with a heavier insulation and gauge wire, hopefully the critters that love to chew will take a little longer, so I don't have to repair as often

  6. BAD BEAGLE ! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 26th 2015

    I had a Radio Fence system years ago, this wire is much better than the older wire, better insulation, I love the fact that it is not stranded, but solid, I have 15 acres to fence and the 1000 ft roll is so much better than having to splice every 500 ft. It shipped very quickly.

  7. Replacing wire for a huge project 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 26th 2014

    Perfect for my project. Glad customer service told me to uzse same gauge. Just wish there was a variety in color hence the 4 stars.

  8. Nice size roll of wire for the price! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on May 13th 2014

    I think that this is a goo product and is sent to the customer quickly. It is easy to use and the spool makes it easy to layout. Only wish there was a slightly heavier gauge wire that could hold up for longer and under more pressure as I do a lot of work in my yard and have clipped it a time or two.

  9. Much better than regular wire 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 22nd 2014

    I wonder why Radio Fence does not offer a 18 or 16 gage wire for areas that we know are going to be trouble spots. The neighbor had a professional competitor company install theirs and the wire was a heavier gage.

  10. Great for a large property. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 24th 2014

    works great
