Our Top Rated Dog Fence Wire is so durable you can even leave it hanging on the fence, lay it on the ground, cover it with mulch, bury it around your lawn or tunnel it under a concrete driveway. The Radio Signal from the transmitter expands out of the copper core of the dog fence wire. The wire is actually the aerial or the antenna to the transmitter so using dog fence wire with a good strong and solid core, helps to maintain the integrity of the signal.

Our Electric Dog Fence Kits usually come with an initial 100m of dog fence wire unless stated otherwise.

Below is a table that shows how much wire you need for your property’s size.
