How much Wire do I need for a Dog Fence?

How to repair electric dog fence wire?

Our Electric Dog Fence Kits usually come with an initial 100m of dog fence wire unless stated otherwise. For most of the kits, the transmitters are capable of covering more than what the initial 100m can offer you.

This means you will need to get extra wire to be able to cover more area. Below is a table that shows how much wire you need for your property’s size.

How much electric dog fence wire do I need?

If the Dog Fence Wire you're using for your Electric Dog Fence is of low quality and breaks, your Dog Fence will stop working and your dog might escape putting him in danger. You will have to spend time to find the break so you can fix it.

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.
