Electric dog fence manufacturers sink the majority of their resources into designing and building high-quality, reliable transmitters and receiver collars. So, even though the wire is a main component in the dog fence system, it's not the specialty of the dog fence kit companies and it's expensive to manufacture and ship. Most dog fence manufacturers include a small spool of pretty low quality dog fence wire in their fence kits. In the industry we refer to this as factory-grade wire. The included factory-grade spool of dg fence wire you'll fin in your kit is probably the thin 20-guage wire.
While the gauge is relevant, the quality of the outer coating, or jacket, is the most important factor in the quality of dog fence wire. Factory-grade wire has a thin vinyl coating that is water resistant, but by no means waterproof. The thin vinyl tends to crack and break over time leading to moisture infiltration and corrosion of the copper wire inside. This corrosion eventually leads to wire breaks.
This higher-quality 18-Gauge dog fence wire is superior to the wire included in the dog fence kits. This wire has a polyethylene jacket that is waterpoof. Upgrading your dog fence system wire will ensure your dogs are protected, safe and at home.
