This is a 1,000 foot roll of Heavy Duty - Solid Core Pet Fence Wire & Flag Kit 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.
Heavy Duty Grade Wire
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.

The wire was actually twice the thickness of the standard wire and with the area I neeeded to cover it was a must!

We've put this system in at our last 3 homes & it has worked with 3 of our 4 dogs over the years. We recently adopted a 1 1/2 yr old german shorthair pointer & wanted to be sure she stayed on our property. Although this system didn't work for a previous GSP we tried it with this one & its working great on the lowest correction level. Within 24 hours she had her boundaries figured out & was able to roam free without us constantly calling her back onto our 2 acres. We have a lot of reason for her to cross the boundary wire with her birdie nature & farmland surrounding our property! She has respected her new limitations & is actually much happier & relaxed b/c we're not constantly calling her back to us. The only reason I'm giving a 4 is b/c the flags now have plastic sticks instead of wire. This made for harder placement into our compact ground. This is an all around great system especially with the staples! They drastically cut installation time down from the first time I installed it with an edger & a stick.

We had the electronics for an Invisible Fence System and bought this wire to use with it. Works great!

Your dog can't stay inside all day, but you don't want to have a fence that obstructs your view of the scenery. The in-ground dog fence is the perfect solution! Radio Fence has all you need, including the wire, remotes and collars to keep you and your dog happy.

That new fence of 2400 feet does the trick keeping my food stealing fat beagle home. He was mad for three days but now seems content. It worked great except for the fancy no strip connectors that do not make a connection on the heavy line. I we had to trouble shoot every connection. I used old fashioned wire connectors and silicone grease for the above ground connections. I thank you my dog TROUBLE does not Charlie

We have nearly 8 acres of land and needed to fence approximately 3 acres with radio fencing. The kit came with 500 feet and we purchased the additional 1,000 feet to cover the area we needed. Turns out we were a little short on line, so I picked up an additional 500 feet of much thinner line. The thinner line is a 'bit easier to work with and was a LOT cheaper. This heavy duty line is good, but the thin, cheap stuff works just as well. You can save some money by just getting the cheap stuff.
