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. Tougher than i expected... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 12th 2013

    First, want to say that the prices and service from Radio Fence are outstanding! Ordered the black heavy-duty wire because I did not want to repeat the process of running it through the brush and vines. Was concerned that it was thin, only 20 ga, but strung 1200 ft and it seems nice and sturdy,

  2. Works Great! 5 Star Review

    We spent the weekend laying this wire, and thankfully after we got it all hooked up, the system works great. The wire is nice and heavy too, and does not seem like it will break very easy. I'm thrilled that we'll be able to keep our baby home and not have to worry.

  7. It works great for us 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 13th 2012

    We have used the inground fence with excellent success. The first time we buried the wire, but this time, when we moved, we used the suggestions for laying it above ground and it was much easier and still works extremely well for our dogs. The heavy duty wire especially seems to be working great in above ground application.

  8. Highly recommend invisible fence 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 20th 2012

    We have enclosed 10 fenced acres with underground wire fencing (we buried the wire across the front of our home, but side and back, we just laid the wire on top of the ground). We have four (4) dogs and it works amazingly. Without question, would recommend to anyone with dogs that are constantly leaving your property boundaries. You will not regret your purchase.
