How Much Dog Fence Wire Do I Need



Overview eXtreme Dog Fence® ManualProduct Manual

This Standard (entry level) DIY Dog Fence Kit from eXtreme Dog Fence® offers high-tech features and a compact and lightweight collar that is suitable for all but the littlest dogs. The Standard Kit is the same fence as the Ultra Kit but does not include twisted wire or a surge protection module. Like all eXtreme Dog Fences®, this one features unique features like Temp & Wire Check as well as multiple frequency selection to avoid interference from a neighboring dog fence or other devices. Check out our eXtreme Dog Fence® Pro-Grade Dog Fence Kit for the best deal on this best-selling brand.

Kit Includes
  • 20-Gauge Wire (500 ft.)
  • Advanced Digital Transmitter
  • Waterproof Collar Receiver
  • 2 Waterproof Splice Kits
  • 50 Training Boundary Flags
  • Long and Medium Receiver Contacts
  • Medium Comfort Contact Covers

Collar Features

Digital Frequency Encoding: The digital frequency encoding is a handy feature if you think a neighbor may also have an electric dog fence. This tech feature eliminates stray signal interference from neighboring dog fence systems and other signal generating devices. Nearby dog fence systems and other devices that generate similar signals can interfere with your electric dog fence causing signal interruption or unreliability.

Small & Lightweight: The eXtreme Dog Fence® Active receiver collar is one of the lightest and smallest collars in the industry (surpassed only by the small dog specific PetSafe Elite Little Dog). Weighing in at only 1.1 ounces it is suitable for dogs right down to 8 lbs. For dogs smaller than that you'll want to go for the PetSafe Elite Little Dog, which tones down the correction strength in addition to the small collar size.

Comfort Contacts: The eXtreme Dog Fence® Active receiver collar uses unique conductive rubber contact points to increase collar comfort for your dog. While the comfort contact points conduct the correction just like metal contact points, they are softer and less irritating on your dog's skin. The comfort contact points make this system the number one choice for dog's with sensitive skin. 

8 Individual Correction Settings: The small eXtreme Dog Fence® Active collars are capable of 1 tone only setting, 5 unique static correction level settings and 2 progressive settings that automatically increase as the dog continues towards the boundary line. Each collar on the system has its own correction level setting, but rather than being set on the collar itself, they are set at the transmitter. The unique correction level settings and lightweight collar make this a good choice for multi-dog households where all dogs are 8+ lbs.

Battery Check: The patented Battery Check feature ensures you only change the battery when it is truly depleted. The Battery Check feature auto-activates every two hours to ensure you know as soon as your battery is low. Since battery output fluctuates depending on the environment and other factors the eXtreme Dog Fence® collar requires 3 consecutive low battery triggers to set off the low battery indication.

Exceptional Waterproofing: Because the Active collar does not have any buttons or dials on the collar itself, the waterproofing is really perfect. The collar can be fully submersed while functioning. Because of this feature we recommend the eXtreme Dog Fence® for rainy climates as well as lake front installation or yards with ponds or pools.  

Disposable Proprietary Battery: This collar uses a disposable proprietary battery. Most people prefer a rechargeable battery, a generic battery is second best because it's easy to get your hands on. The proprietary battery is generally our least favorite but does have it's virtues in this case. The Perimeter Technologies proprietary battery has a pretty impressive 2-4 month lifespan and their superior tech features include a sophisticated battery indicator that detects a true low battery so you only change it when it is depleted. For some people a battery change every 2-4 months is preferable over remembering to recharge daily. 

Transmitter Features

Multiple Frequencies: The standout feature on the eXtreme Dog Fence® transmitter is the multiple frequency selection. This feature ensures that your dog fence will work, uninterrupted, even if your neighbors install their own dog fence or there are other signal emitting devices around. 

Adjustable Boundary Zone: The boundary zone width adjustment on the eXtreme Dog Fence® system is completely digital so you can make really precise adjustments. The zone width can range from just a few inches to 32 ft. and the system is capable of remembering and returning to past settings. 

Temp Check & Wire Check: eXtreme Dog Fence® is known for their attention to detail and techie system components. Their patented Temp Check and Wire Check diagnostic features automatically sense and adjust for temperature and electrical changes that could impact the performance of the dog fence boundary wire. This may seem unimportant in average climates but can actually make a significant difference in very cold temperatures or areas where the power is spotty at times. 

25 Acre Capacity: The eXtreme Dog Fence® PRO-Grade dog fence is capable of installations of 25 acres or less. While other fences in the same price point offer greater coverage, 25 acres is more than enough for most urban and suburban properties. 

Lacks Battery Backup: Surprisingly, despite all the tech savviness at eXtreme Dog Fence®, this system lacks battery backup in case of power failure. While the transmitter is very reliable, if the power goes out and the boundary goes down, your dogs will be unprotected. 

Do you like what you see, but want a wire that will last a whole lot longer before it begins to degrade and break down? Do you want a surge protector that does double duty (protects your fence system AND protects your home's internal electrical system from any lightning strikes that hit your boundary wire)? How about a 3 year warranty vs. a 1 year manufacturer warranty? Would you like your package to include a 1 year containment guarantee, so that you can be sure you invest in a product that will be sufficient to meet your dog's temperament and personality? If these upgrades and more strike your fancy, then perhaps you would rather invest in the PRO-Grade version of this fence system.

Love the system but the wire is not as durable
Love My Perimeter fence, love my dog, love the lightweight collar, love the that my dog can go in and out through her doggy door without me watching over her every move, Love that I am in Love with my small investment instead of paying ridiculous prices to Invisible Fence Review by Preston (Posted on 12/31/2015)
Go with the Prograde
I’ve had this product for almost 6 months and the battery is still as strong as it was at day one. Despite me going to the cheaper basic package that came with the 20 gauge wire I had to redo the wire and order the Pro-Grade wire. NO complaints. Review by Linda Sheeter (Posted on 12/31/2015)
Absolutely love my invisible fence
My two Terriers are so very clever and this Perimeter Technology has nip their bad behaviors right out the only downfall I had was being cheap. I had to order the Extreme wire because the wire it came with had a break in the first two weeks but it is fixed now and my babies are safe. Review by Hendry (Posted on 12/31/2015)
Not very impressed. Had to replace the collar AND get thicker wire after buying this fence.
We were not very pleased with this fence system. First of all, the wire is so thin that it broke when I was trying to bury it. I had to go get another splice just to try and repair the break. Less than 20 minutes later, it breaks again. Luckily, I picked up extra splices from Home Depot. After having repaired the wire twice, I finished burying it and plugged it in. The transformer kept beeping.
I called Flexpetz support and they told me that was a signal to let me know there is a problem with the wire. I had to dig it all back up and couldn't find where the problem was.
I called Flexpetz back and ordered some thicker/stronger wire for it, and plugged it into the transformer before burying it. The beeping stopped. I buried the thicker wire and went to test it with the collar and it didn't work. Come to find out, the collar was defective.
The manufacturer sent out a replacement, and everything works now, but the whole setup was a hassle I wouldn't go through again.
Hopefully the fence will last and not present any further problems, because we are over it.
If you order this system, get it with better wire than it comes with, and test everything before you bury any wire.

Excellent Product
This is an excellent product. Easy to install and set up. Works very well. Great price. Other dog fence companies are charging $1500+ for products similar to this. Completely satisfied with the product, and I recommend anyone looking for a dog fence purchase this product. Review by Kdbowers (Posted on 6/28/2013)
Simple System
I didn't want anything fancy for my vacation home. Just a basic system to keep my dog contained. This did the job at the right price! I am extremely happy with the general quality of the fence and even more happy that I could buy something that is made in the U.S.A. as opposed to China, great to see that we can still make stuff here. Review by MaryJane (Posted on 4/4/2013)
I really enjoyed this product for my lil pup. It is a tad on the pricey side however well worth every penny of it! Ill be buying a second for a gift as I find this to be one of the top dog training fences out there. The only complaint I have is the cheap wire the kit came with, I can tell this stuff isn't going to last, Review by halia (Posted on 3/10/2013)
Basic Ultra
Superior quality and features make this electric dog fence system a great one. This glorious system offers brilliant controls that work to regulate the boundary signal regardless of changes in temperature. .The waterproof collar is lightweight (1.1 oz) and features conductive rubber contacts to ensure comfort . Five correction levels make this system perfect for multi-dog households like mine. I have yet to see any flaws with this system but if I do I will be sure to update this review.

“Before Flex pets. I never knew that something like this existed.
I cant find service like this anywhere else!
what a remarkable way to save on the ever expanding need for pet fencing systems"
Review by Soo (Posted on 9/20/2012)
Great system but
I really love this system for the most part, the only real complaint I have is the low quality wire that keeps breaking, I installed this about 4 months ago and have had to repair the wire about 10 times, I am about to upgrade to a heavier duty wire because looking for breaks in the wire just plain sucks. Aside from the wire issue the collar is small and light weight and performs well when the system is working. Review by caitlin (Posted on 1/18/2012)
