Guideline to Boundary Wire for Pet Fence

Standard

You want to give your dog the freedom to enjoy the outdoors off-leash, but you know it is imperative that they stay home within their own yard.  Many people make the decision to install pet containment systems, also known as electronic pet fence or invisible fence systems.  These systems are easy to install, don’t alter the landscaping, and they are cost effective.   A key component of underground pet containment systems is the boundary wire.  First, you must determine the length of wire needed for your project, then determine the gauge and strength of the wire.

PSUSA Twisted Boundary Wire

Twisted Wire allows you to create a neutral wire that does not activate the correction on your dog’s collar.  You can twist two wires together to make your own twisted wire, or you can purchase pre-twisted wire.  Twisted wire can be used to carry the signal from your transmitter box out to the main loop, but your dog will be able to cross it as it is neutral.
