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.
The following illustrations show the boundary wires that are available. All of the wire is compatible with Perimeter Fence brand systems and Invisible Fence.
PSUSA Solid Core Boundary Wire
PSUSA Solid Core Boundary Wire is available from 14-gauge (thickest) to 20-gauge (thinnest), and in lengths from 150 feet to 1,000 feet.
PSUSA Solid Core Boundary Wire Kits
Boundary Kits include the boundary wire, boundary flags and splices. Kits that are 500 feet have 50 flags and 2 splices, and kits that are 1,000 feet have 100 flags and 2 splices.
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.
