Guideline to Boundary Wire for Pet Fence


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.


Comparison of Wire Gauges

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.

WISEWIRE® is the next generation in Pet Containment boundary wire. WISEWIRE® is the future of pet containment wire and can be used with any in-ground fence system! WISEWIRE® is not your Dad’s copper wire. WISEWIRE® has the same tensile (breaking) strength as 14 gauge copper wire. WISEWIRE® is a heavy duty, extra high-strength, copper-clad steel wire utilizing a commercial grade steel-core that is metallurgically bonded with a copper cladding. Uniform and continuous, this cladding creates a bi-metal conductor that acts as one and is highly corrosion resistant. Special annealing and drawing processes are performed during the cladding process to achieve the desired engineered benefits of unmatched strength, reliability and durability.


WiseWire is available in 20g, 18g, 16g and 14g, and a selection of 500ft or 1000ft spools.

Insulation is a 20 mil, high-density, high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE/HDPE) engineered to provide superior water blocking and abrasion properties against underground elements and helps prevent accidental breaks caused by rocks in shifting soil conditions, dig-ins and corrosion.

  • WISEWIRE® is equal to copper in signal performance for pet containment systems. That’s the only direct comparison; it simply outperforms copper wire in strength, reliability, and durability – at a much lower cost and (shipping) weight.
  • WISEWIRE® 20 AWG is 5X higher in break load- equal to a much heavier 14 AWG copper wire- minimizing damage during installation and while in service. Designed to embody the flexibility and memory of copper with a slightly stiffer feel, it can be used in open trench as well as plow-in installations. 20 gauge copper CANNOT be used reliably in a wire-laying machine due to its low tensile strength… but WISEWIRE® does it easily!
  • WISEWIRE® 20 AWG provides excellent corrosion resistance and superior strength for unmatched tensile, side impact loads and flex fatigue. WISEWIRE® is RoHS compliant and works with traditional connectors.
  • WISEWIRE® is eco-friendly. Protecting the Earth and going green, all materials that go into this product are fully recyclable.
  • WISEWIRE® offers considerably more pricing stability than 100% copper wire.
  • WISEWIRE® has been field tested for the last 2 years by select commercial installers. These installers swear that they will NEVER go back to 100% copper wire!
  • 14 gauge tensile strength can be achieved with 20 gauge WISEWIRE® weighing 3 lbs compared to 14ga that ships at 11 lbs per 500′ spool. The shipping expense savings is obvious. For those who are still not comfortable with 20 gauge wire, WISEWIRE® is also available in 18 gauge, 16 gauge, and 14 gauge sizes. Each gauge of WISEWIRE® above 18 gauge is 56% stronger than its copper counterparts and 20 gauge performs even better compared to 18 gauge:

WISEWIRE® 20 AWG PE20 is 150% stronger in break load or equal to 18 AWG copper wire.  It is available in 500 and 1,000 feet lengths:

WISEWIRE® 18 AWG PE30 is 56% stronger in break load or equal to 16 AWG copper wire.  It is available in 500 and 1,000 feet lengths:

WISEWIRE® 16 AWG PE45 is 56% stronger in break load or equal to 14 AWG copper wire.  It is available in 500 and 1,000 feet lengths:

WISEWIRE® 14 AWG PE45 is 56% stronger in break load or equal to 12 AWG copper wire.  It is available in 500 and 1,000 feet lengths:

WISEWIRE® has been field tested for the last 2 years by select commercial installers. These installers swear that they will NEVER go back to 100% copper wire!

Healers Urban Walkers were designed by a former Nike Shoe designer and are tested by the National Guide Dogs for the Blind.   The dog boots are designed with a non-skid sole, and the upper is a shoe mesh so that they dry quickly.  it dries quickly. Even though the sole is thicker it is still flexible providing your pet a natural feel and movement as they walk or run. The wrap around design enables a great fit so the boot stays on. The hook and loop applied is high tensile strength hook that creates a firm hold even in snowy conditions.

In addition to protection against ice and road salt, they serve as a shock absorber, provide surface traction and insulate the dog from extreme hot and cold temperatures.

Healers Urban Walkers are available in 7 sizes, so they are sized for the tiniest of toy breeds such as Chihuahuas and Yorkies on up to the giant breeds such as Mastiffs and St. Bernards, and everything in between.  The Healers Urban Walkers are sold in pairs, because many dogs front paws are a slightly different size compared to their rear paws.

K9 Shower


K9 Shower was designed as a quick way for you to clean up or rinse your dog of mud, sand or dirt while on the road or at an event.  It helps to solve the problem of the “dirty dog” and muddy paws.

The K9 shower ™ allows you to bring 2.2 gallons of warm water to thoroughly rinse your dog after hiking, or after a trip to the dog park, beach or other adventure. The shower hangs from a car window, and gravity-feeds warm water through a six-foot hose and shower head to clean paws, legs, chest or entire body. Dry your dog and load a clean, dry dog into your car. Arrive home with both a clean car and a clean dog.

K9 Shower

K9 Shower is portable for easy clean-ups while on the road.

It also the perfect solution to muddy paws at home.  The K9 Shower comes with a mounting bracket that allows you to hang the shower from a deck railing, exterior wall, interior wall or anywhere that’s convenient for cleaning at the entry point to your home. Brackets are included for mounting.  Because the shower head releases a gentle stream of water, it is non-threatening to dogs that don’t like getting blasted by a hose or drenched from a bucket.   Forget about struggling with a hose or bucket!

K9 Shower Portable Shower for Dogs

K9 Shower includes mounting brackets so that it can be easily mounted to a deck railing, or interior or exterior wall.

Additionally, the K9 Shower is a convenient solution for cooling down active dogs on a hot day, such as during agility events or working trials where you can ensure a source of cooling water for your dogs.

How It Works: If your adventure involves transporting your dog in your car, then the K9 Shower rides along with you. It’s watertight for transportation. When you and your dog have had your fun, and Fido shows the evidence with dirty paws or worse, it’s time to position the K9 Shower. Lower any car window about an inch or more and rest the shower on the open window with the integrated hooks on the shower tank. Unwrap the 6′ of hose, slide the shower head into the “on” position and water will flow under gravity pressure. You can control the flow of water with only one hand by switching the shower head “on” or “off”. There is a healthy flow of water, enough to be able to point the shower head directly up (to clean chest/belly) and have water fountain up about eight inches.

Tether Tug Interactive Dog Toy


Tether Tug is the latest interactive tug toy to keep your active dog entertained!  My two Boerboels love to play with a flirt pole, but like most active dogs, they wear me out quickly.  The Tether Tug is designed so that your dog can entertain himself — and you can sit back and enjoy the show!

Tether Tug

Tether Tug interactive tug toy for dogs — your dog will have a blast!

Cardiovascular Health Benefits from Tether Tug

Dogs, like humans, are at risk for health complications if they do not get enough physical activity. The Tether Tug allows dogs to play whenever they want and provides hours of healthy exercise.

Tether Tug Provides Play for Dogs of all Sizes

The Tether Tug is designed to be played with by dogs of any size. The durable construction is sturdy enough for big dogs, but adjustable to allow play for the smaller breeds.  Dogs of all sizes can play.  The Tether Tug comes in 4 sizes — Small, Medium, Large and XL.  Select the size that meets the needs of your dog depending on his size and strength.

Tether Tug Provides Hours of Outdoor Play

Dogs crave play and interaction, and when this can’t happen, destructive behavior can begin.  The Tether Tug allows the dog to interact as if it is playing tug with you, without the arm and shoulder pain or fatigue that causes owners to only pull for a few minutes.

Tether Tug for Small Dogs

The Tether Tug Small is designed for smaller breeds that have trouble grabbing a thick knotted rope.  The Tug is the same pole an in-ground base as the other Tether Tugs, but with a braided fleece toy to allow for easier grabbing and pulling and is easier on smaller teeth.  The fleece toy hangs lower to the ground for shorter dogs and puppies, but the pole still bends and flexes to keep your small dog engaged in play.

Tether Tug XL

The Tether Tug comes in four sizes so that you can select the best option for our dog, depending on his size and strength.  For the largest, strongest and most aggressive pullers, we suggest the Tether Tug XL.  The Tether Tug XL is the strongest and most durable Tether Tug.  It is built with the strongest, thickest core, as well as a larger, more heavy duty in-ground base.  The knotted rope toy in the XL is set higher than the original Tether Tug, but still provides the same level of energetic play as the original.  The XL comes with an in-ground base that allows the tug to spin and turn, as well as a quick connector to allow for toy changes.

Perimeter Technologies Wire-Free WiFi Dog Fence PTPWF-100

The Wire-Free WiFi Dog Fence from Perimeter is the only wireless fence that uses the latest digitally encoded WiFi technology.  For this reason, Wire-Free WiFi Dog Fence provides a much larger signal field than Wireless Instant Fence from PetSafe.  This system will not interfere with your wireless router on your home network because the Perimeter WiFi Fence uses an 802.15 signal instead of 805.11 on most home networks.  If you have a large yard and need a flexible system for dog fence, this is the product for you!

How Perimeter Wire-Free WiFi Dog Fence Works

The Perimeter Wire-Free WiFi Fence employs the hottest micro-chip transceiver set, operating on what has now become a very familiar 802.15 wireless communication protocol used in all the new cool electronic products.  Unlike dated fencing technology, the Wire-Free Smart Station and Pet Link collar are both connected by transceivers.   Transceivers are highly integrated signal chips that constantly links the distance between your dog and the Smart Station™. Wire-Free intelligently tracks the location of your dog at all times,providing a reminder to respect the established boundary safe area, all while communicating critical safety information back to you. It will provide a circular containment area up to 2.5 acres.

Review of Healers Urban Walkers Dog Boots


I found this testimonial on the Bowserwear blog, and I thought it was important to share it.  Healers Urban Walkers dog boots are proudly sold online at, where a portion of all revenue is donated to Rescue and helping dogs in need.

“I love your boots so much, wonderful quality. They stay on and keep Dylan and Trevor’s paws from this awful Kansas heat on the pavement. Our walking trail is asphalt and gets so hot. Now I can walk them knowing their paws are protected. Also the boots will be great in the winter. It gets very cold with ice and snow. Dylan my eleven year old had ACL surgery last year. I took him to a specialty clinic for Rehabilitating. Starting few weeks after his surgery. Once a week for six months every week. Water treadmill and cold laser therapy. He is doing wonderful goes to work with me and Trevor every night. In fact where we go Dylan goes also. I have my walking buddy back. I want to keep him healthy always making sure he is careful what ever we are doing not to hurt the leg. I love my babies.”  ~ Gloria , Perfect Puppy, LLC  Dog Training

Healers Paw Booties


Now there is finally something to help our dogs when they have problems with their paws — either from an injury, allergies or itchiness.  Healers Paw Booties are medical dog boots that are designed as a medical aid that is fitted for your dog’s paw.  They come in all sizes, and can be used for the teacup breeds as well as the Giants.  They are easy to put on your dog!

Healers Paw Boots

What is unique about these Healers Paw Booties is that they incHealers Paw Boots Replacement Gauze Insertslude replacement gauze inserts that fit the interior of the bootie so that you can apply ointment to the area that needs treated or protected.  The Healers custom non-adherent, triple layer gauze inserts fit the interior of the dog bootie and acts as a bandage to absorb moisture and allows owner to apply medicine if needed.  Adhesive backing on the gauze pads keep the gauze in place.

I like the reasonable price too!  They are priced according to size, and all sizes are under $30/pair.  Yes, they come in pairs!  Each boxed set also includes replacement gauze inserts for additional protection for your dog’s paw.

A friend of mine has used expensive socks to help treat her dog’s paw injury, and to keep the paw from getting infected.  The socks seemed to work fine (they were good, well-fitted socks), but I expect that one of the Healers Paw Booties will work much better as they are designed to fit the unique shape of a dog’s paw.

I haven’t tried these yet as there hasn’t been a need, but if for some reason either of my dogs develops a paw injury or allergies, you can bet that I will give these a whirl.  I don’t have much patience for trying to wrap a dog’s foot while trying to keep it clean.  These look like they are just what the Doctor (er, Vet) ordered!
