Twisting two sections of dog fence wire together creates a neutral wire that will not trigger a correction when your dog nears or crosses it. Most dog fence installations require at least one length of neutral, twisted wire to connect the transmitter to the active boundary loop. Many installations, like those that include internal off-limits zones, require more. The total twisted wire footage you will need depends on the distance your perimeter is from your transmitter box and your specific layout.
Our heavy duty electric dog fence twisted wire features a 45mil polyethylene jacket to keep it safe from moisture and corrosion. Dog fence manufacturers do not include any twisted wire in their DIY dog fence kits. So, if you need twisted wire for your installation be sure to add this option when you select your fence. The 3-4 year lifespan of manufacturer grade twisted wire pales in comparison to the 10-20 year lifespan of our heavy duty 16-gauge twisted dog fence wire.
Better Safe than Sorry Review by Katie Long / Great Lakes
Quality Price Value
When I saw that this wire can last from 10-20 years as opposed as the 3-4 years of the wire that came with my fence kit, I was sold. I do not want to have worry about wire breaks in only 4 years. I figure that it is better to do things right the first time. I am already saving so much money with FlexPetz that spending a little extra on this wire is well worth it to me. (Posted on 1/27/13)

Quality Price Value
I needed to rewire my old invisible fence. My local fence guy wanted $1200 to do my 1/2 acre lot! $1200? I don't think so. I did some research and came across flexpetz.
The technician pulled my property up on google maps and was able to help answer my questions. My rewire was substantially less than the quote I received. I was able to use professional quality wire. This fence will last for many years. I'm very happy with the service I received. (Posted on 1/24/13)
