This Pet Fence Kit includes everything you need to contain one pet in a yard up to 1 acre. With additional wire and flags and dog fence collars, you can enclose up to 100 acres and contain an unlimited number of pets.
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.

"We have three dogs, two of which were constantly getting out of our yard. A fully fenced shy acre. One (a lab whippet mix) jumped out the other (a golden retriever)weasled her way under the fence.
Our jumper was the neighborhood nuisance and our neighbors were starting to complain. It was either get the electric fencing, build a dog run or get rid of the dog. The latter was not an option so we order the fencing.
Since the day of installation, we've only had one ""run through"" escape and that was the first day. After 6 months, the dogs no longer go within three feet of the existing fence with our without the radio collars.
I can honestly say that I believe this product saved our dogs life. He was a prime target of angry neighbors, the animal control and maybe even traffic.
If you're thinking about getting an invisible fence, strongly consider buying this one.
It was a little time consuming to install given the full acre, but we buried the line around the perimeter and put the control box in our garage. I think if you have dogs that you need to keep contained in a certain area and you don't mind doing a little digging, you can't go wrong with this product.
Besides the physical labor, the only other con was the fact that we have three dogs so we had to purchase two additional collars. They can be a bit pricey."

"I had two areas that I needed blocked off. I was unable to wire both areas with only one box. I am not sure it this box is weather proof.
My dogs took only two corrections to figure it out. Great product"

We have a Belgian Malinios. He is nothing but muscle and energy. He could easily clear the fence around the 1.5 acres in the back yard, and we hoped this would keep him in the yard and safe. It took us about 4 hours to install the fence, with one minor modification. We had to use pvc connected together with joints to protect the wire since the ground where we live was already frozen. We will bury it in the spring. The remainder of the fence is laced through our exsisting fence, and that went quickly. There are alot of deer, antelope, and rabbits that pass through our yard, and while Sam broke the boundary once, it hasn't happened since. He can run really really really fast, and I am not sure the boundary was wide enough to correct him. Now it is and he watches the deer and then goes on about playing. This fence works great and the collar is not having any problems holding up to rolling and playing in the snow. This was more than worth every penny!!!

We have several acres of land and as our area has grown, more neighbors now, we have to contain our dogs. I had a lot of people tell me the only thing to do was tie them up. Including my husband telling me he heard underground fences won't work with hunting dogs. It was a little work puttig it in the ground, drive way and such. One shock was all it took (those seconds are probably the ony hard part of the entire process installation and training, I am soft hearted.) We have happy contained dogs now. This is a great product. One dog is a puppy and chews through the adult dog's collar, and we have lost a collar that way, they aren't cheap. It is worth it still!
