How Much Dog Fence Wire Do I Need



Overview PetSafe Stubborn Dog PIG00-10777 PRO-Grade ManualProduct Manual
The PetSafe Stubborn Dog Fence Kit is a good choice for dogs with low pain sensitivity as well as very large breeds (over 100 lbs.). The name (Stubborn) is somewhat misleading as the fence is not geared towards a dog that has a stubborn personality so much as breeds that have been bred to have a low sensitivity to pain. This fence jacks up the strength of the correction by 50% over the average dog fence system, making it a good option for those of us with dogs in the guardian and fighting breeds like German Shepherds, Akitas, or Pitt Bulls. The system is powerful and needs to be used prudently to avoid over-correction. This system is a great option for households with dogs of differing size and/or breed as it is cross compatible with other PetSafe collars. Our upgraded PRO-Grade package improves the performance and lifespan of your electric dog fence by including professional grade wire, surge protection, lawn staples, and an extended warranty.

Kit Includes
  • PRO-Grade 14-Gauge Wire (500 ft.)
  • PRO-Grade 16-Gauge Twisted Wire (50 ft.)
  • PRO-Grade Surge Protection Module
  • PRO-Grade Dog Fence Staples (10)
  • PetSafe 10 Acre Transmitter
  • Stubborn Dog Collar Receiver
  • 2 Waterproof Splice Kits
  • 50 Training Boundary Flags
  • Standard Receiver Contacts
  • Test Light Tool/Contact Wrench
  • 9 Volt Collar Battery
  • Installation/Training Manual

Collar Features

Strongest Available Correction: The PetSafe Stubborn Dog collar offers 50% stronger corrections than standard collars because it is specifically designed for guardian breeds with high pain tolerance or dogs over 100 lbs. This increased correction is too much for smaller or more sensitive dogs and must be used with care to avoid over-correction. 

Compatible With PetSafe Indoor Zones: The Stubborn Dog collar included in this kit is compatible with the PetSafe Indoor Radio Fence (PIRF-100), which allows you to create dog-free areas inside your home using the same boundary system and collar as your Stubborn Dog Fence. These exclusion zones are most frequently used to restrict your pet's access to certain areas of the house or keep them off of furniture. 

5 Individually Adjustable Correction Levels: The Stubborn Dog collars allow you to set the correction level for each collar on the system independently. This makes the system suitable for multidog households where each dog has different correction strength needs. Even the lowest correction levels on the Stubborn Dog collar are quite strong and not recommended for smaller dogs or any dog with higher sensitivity to stimulation. Over-correction can overwhelm the dog and undermine the training process. 

Disposable Battery: This collar uses a standard 9-volt battery. Although most people generally prefer a rechargeable battery, a generic 9V is easy to get your hands. This battery has a lifespan of 3-4 months.

Large, Bulky Collar: The Stubborn Dog collar is about the largest collar on the market, and one of the heaviest too. Even without the stronger correction levels, it still wouldn't be suitable for dogs under 20 lbs. 

Transmitter Features

Compatible With Other Collars:
 The PetSafe Stubborn Dog Transmitter is compatible with other PetSafe Dog Fence Receiver Collars, so this is a suitable system for a multidog household where only one dog needs the Stubborn Dog collar. The PetSafe Elite Little Dog and PetSafe Deluxe UltraLight receiver collars are also fully compatible with the Stubborn Dog system. 

10 Acre Capacity: The PetSafe Stubborn Dog fence includes the PetSafe Basic Transmitter, the same one that is included in the PetSafe Basic System (PIG00-13661). The transmitter can handle up to 10 acres.

Adjustable Boundary Width: The reliable and simple transmitter allows you to adjust the width of the boundary zone between 0 and 10 ft. The larger the boundary zone, the less likely your dog is to cross it and break out. While most dogs are fine with a boundary zone of 3-5 ft., it's nice to have the option to increase it during training or for those dogs that are particularly driven to escape.

Boundary Alarm: The boundary alarm sounds when you have a wire break anywhere in your fence. A steady green light confirms that the boundary is operational. 

Lacks Battery Backup: Although this basic transmitter is easy to use and reliable, it does not include battery backup. This is generally not an issue for most dog fence users but for those who live in areas with frequent power outages you may want to look into an aftermarket battery backup device.

PRO-Grade Upgrades


1000 ft. Heavy Duty Pro-Grade Wire: Our Pro-Grade Kits include upgraded 14-gauge PRO-Grade wire. This heavy duty, polyelethene plastic coated wire is what would come with a professionally installed system like Invisible Fence®. Upgrading to thicker, more durable wire helps prevent costly and time-consuming wire breaks. 

50 ft. Heavy Duty Pro-Grade Twisted Wire: Although you could use two double long strands of wire to make your own twisted wire, this gets pretty messy and difficult if you need any decent length of it. Our PRO-Grade DIY dog fence kits save you the hassle by including 50 ft. of heavy duty pro-grade twisted neutral dog fence wire. 

10 Heavy Duty Ground Staples: Ground staples are perfect for laying out your dog fence wire or for installations that run through terrain where burying the wire is difficult or impossible. Our heavy duty ground staples are guaranteed to keep your dog fence wire in place.


External Surge Protection: External surge protection is the best thing you can do to protect your investment. Rather than let a rogue power surge blow your transmitter, simply plug in our heavy duty PRO-Grade surge protection module. This surge protector keeps your dog fence safe from lightening strikes and main power surges.

Bulldog proof.
I am a single woman who lives alone with my bulldog. I don't always have time to make sure that we go on walks but he gets to exercise within his new boundary. It is nice because I do a lot of traveling and I just have friends come by to let him out and I don't have to ever worry about him leaving me.

I wasn't sure which package or system I wanted but was able to get the help from FlexPetz. Told them about my yard and my dog and they recommended a system and everything I needed to install it. We went over videos and different layouts until we figured out which was best. I feel like my dog is safe and I also feel that the system is going to last a long time. Weekend project for installation but the website may it easy.

Stubborn your match. The Pro Grade Stubborn Dog fence is a reliable fence solution.
One of the best things in life is to accomplish. I had never setup a dog fence like this before, so I was eager to get this setup under my belt.
We got it setup on our first try.
We contacted the Flexpetz staff for assistance on training, and they were very helpful.
I would surely recommend anyone to try Flexpetz for your dog fencing.

Two thumbs up for the Petsafe Stubborn Dog Fence.
Some people may not find it cost effective to install a wooden or chain link fence in their yard.
Installing that type of fence is a permanent installation. That would be a loss if the resident decided to move, and didn't want to have the fence relocated.

We decided to try out one of the static fences that are invisible in the yard.
The only installed piece is the wire, and that can be replaced easily if changing residence.
We liked the professional grade package, so we went with the upgrade and got the good stuff (better wire, longer warranty, high end surge protector, etc.)
The installation only took 2 hours, and the wire was tested and buried as per our requirements.
Training is going to be next week. I'm confident that our dog will pick up the process pretty quickly.
We're very happy with our purchase at and would suggest anyone needing a fence system to contact them and let them assist you in figuring out the best fence solution for them. Flexpetz is right on point.

The PetSafe Stubborn Dog Fence PRO-Grade is great.
I have two very large dogs that are very stubborn. They are older and are set in their ways. I did some research to find the best dog fence systems that would be a good fit for these large dogs. They are Mastiffs and demand a lot of attention. I live on a 1 acre lot and these dogs are now contained and secured incredibly well. This dog fence system has made my life much easier. They are also getting an ample amount of exercise due to this dog fence system. It was very simplistic and easy to install this dog fence. It has been smooth sailing since the installation of this dog fence system. I also take my dogs to a lake for fun. The waterproof collars is an asset for me. I was skeptical about how well the dog fence and collars would hold up to two very large dogs. I am amazed at this dog fence's attributes. Thank you FlexPetz for the great investment and excellent customer service.

Perfect for my German Shepard
My husband got the system installed last week and training is going well. I knew nothing about electric dog fences but were desperate to find a solution for containing our Shepard. A physical fence was going to cost a fortune. I called Invisible Fence and the cost was almost the same. We found FLEXPETZ and the free tech support was invaluable. They helped us choose a system and design the layout. They had some great videos and illustrations of installation and training. Problem solved.

This system is great.
Thank you FlexPetz for advising me on a excellent dog fence for my 2 labs. I am pleased to let others know that the system that I have purchased from FlexPetz is phenomenal. I have been in the market for a substantial length of time searching for a quality dog fence. I was recommended to use a Petsafe stubborn dog fence pro-grade. I am extremely satisfied. My dogs are getting 10 times more exercise now. I have peace of mind that they are safe outdoors. Thank you FlexPetz.

Excited about the PetSafe Stubborn Dog Fence Prp-Grade
This dog fence has been a game changer. This fence has made life much easier than I would have ever expected when it comes to keeping my dogs secure within our property. I was very impressed with the help and knowledge of FlexPetz. I had some questions during installation and I was able to have my questions answered. My dogs are stubborn. It is fitting that I purchased the Pro-Grade Stubborn Dog Fence. The process has been extremely easy to contain my dogs and keep them safe. I would highly recommend this system to friends and family. Flexpetz were very helpful throughout the entire installation process. Thank you FlexPetz.

My Pit is Confined
Very pleased with this system! I did not really think that this would work with my pit, but sure enough it did with no hesitation. The learning part was a little long, but I think he got the hint just yesterday. He tried many many times to test the fence and I didn't think he would ever learn, but it does keep him in like I needed it to. He has not busted out once, but the boundary is still something I guess he is not used to. I feel like I will still be training him for a while. No worry's! I am very happy, he doesn't cross the line and that is an accomplishment!

Works great for my GS!
We have had this system in place for 8 months now and it has been working great! The collar is a bit large but Geoffrey can be pretty stubborn and is quite strong so we wanted to make sure we got something that gave him a jolt. He tested the fence a few times but now will pretty much turn back as soon as he hears a beep. My favorite part is the battery seems to last much longer than the one on our previous fence, about 5 months. And 9 volt batteries are much easier to find.
Customer support is also great at flexpetza. We have definitely used their lifetime support a few times to help with setup, which wasn't as hard as most people probably think.

Greyhound stays home!
Finally got a handle on my Pretty Girl. My beautiful Greyhound was getting out all the time but now she is contained to the farm that I have no more problems with her leaving. I was afraid that she would get stolen, but now she doesn't leave the property. Putting in the fence was easy and a monkey can do it. I just want to say if you plan on putting something on your property and have no use for a physical fence, this is the way to go. If you want to do it all over again, then I guess buy the cheap crap. My suggestion if you want to do something right and get it done, do it right the first time around. My neighbor had to rewire his fence three times before he bought the better wire. Just thought I would put my two sense in.

This system is top notch. I am a satisfied customer.
I decided to buy a DIY electric dog fence and began a search online. I discovered The customer support was exceptional. I was advised on the best possible system that would work for me and my 2 dogs. I would suggest this system to my family and friends. This system has made my life much easier. My dogs are now exercising much more, compared to just walking them a couple times per day. Thank you FlexPetz. I am a satisfied customer.

The stubborn dog fence professional grade is a solid, shock fence solution for a pitt bull dog
I am not new to electric shock dog fences for dogs. I've had exposure to the everything from the big installation companies' products down to the cheapie systems that are on Walmart shelves.
Having a pitt bull comes with its own requirements when considering such a system.
He's got a high pain threshold, so my first choice was the stubborn dog system. I don't even have to set it on the higher levels, because he responds on level 2.
The pro wire looks like it's going to last quite a bit longer than the Walmart system wire.
I'm very happy with the Stubborn Dog professional package, and would recommend it to anyone.

The PetSafe Stubborn Fence Pro-Grade is Great.
This dog fence has been a real life saver for my family and I. I installed the dog fence very easily. I had no problems putting this system in-ground. I really like the fact that my dogs now get the exercise that they need. I also sleep better knowing that my dogs are contained and will not venture towards a road that is near by. I would recommend this system to all my friends and family. It is high quality and has lived up to the reputation portrayed online. This system is absolutely a best buy. Thank you.

PetSafe Stubborn Dog Fence is super.
We have been using the PetSafe Stubborn Dog Fence for 3 months now. I must comment on the high quality of the system. In comparison to a system we had previously this system is light years ahead. The system has been a great asset to the well being of the dogs we have. I must say that the level of customer service has been great. The customer service at FlexPetz was wonderful and extremely helpful. I would recommend this system to all my friends and family.

super fast shipment. good quality
This dog fence came a lot sooner than I was expecting it to. I was shocked at how fast I got it. I'm setting it up this weekend and can't wait to start training my lab. I'm glad I worked with you guys. Review by Robert Sable (Posted on 11/26/2014)
Stubborn Dog definitely solves the problem.
I'm glad with the Stubborn Dog fence. It works where the regular guardian fence does virtually nothing. I would recommend anyone with a strong willed dog to give this fence a look. This thing is perfect. I don't even need to set it at the highest level to do its job. Great product here flexpetz. Review by Happy Consumer Man (Posted on 10/27/2014)
The PetSafe Stubborn Fence Pro-Grade is Terrific.
I think this dog fence is so awesome. I was unaware that anything like this existed. I was at a friends house one weekend. She explained to me how she keep her dogs safe and constantly active. That day I discovered what a dog fence actually was. I ran the idea by my husband and we decided to give it a go. It has been smooth sailing ever since. I love the peace of mind that my dogs are safely contained in the yard. The help at FlexPetz is fantastic. Their support helped tremendously during installation of the dog fence. Thanks FlexPetz.

Perfect product
Last month was my birthday and my husband gifted me with PetSafe Stubborn Dog Fence PRO-Grade. Its really awesome,My love to my pets is more now that I can let them outside without having to leash them, really is much more convieient. Quality and price are so affordable to every one individual and I seriously recommend everyone.I have three dogs that hated staying inside my yard. They would always dig out and I would have to chase them around the neighborhood. My neighbors were starting to complain about them getting into their garbage and what not, so I decided it was time to make a change. Also loving the indoor system! No more jumping on the counters and stealing food, Zeus and Seizure get much more play time outside now, not really to hard to install although it was quite a work out physically.

Thrilled Animal Control Officer
As an animal control officer of nearly 10 years, I admit, I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to tips, tricks, and techniques for keeping your dog contained and this venture was no different. I tried this product based on a friend’s recommendation and had to share my story. Now, as an officer, I’ve never been highly strict on dogs running at large unless they were repeat violators because… things happen, and they happen to everyone as I found out with my latest adoptee. Last year, I adopted a Greyhound/Great Dane mix because he was so adorable and funny looking and cross-eyed and sweet, and HUGE. Despite the fact that my little acre and a half of property is securely fenced, my new, huge dog with a penchant for running at high speeds, kept escaping. I’m an animal control officer! I HAD to stop this!! Lurch (my dog) would simply walk up to my 4’ chain link fence, put his front paws on the top of it and he was over. At that point, the greyhound in him took over and he was off and running. Given my profession, you can imagine my distress at this situation. I approached a newly developed pet containment company that had moved into the area and they wanted more than $1500 to secure my property with underground pet fencing. Now, I work for local government so we all know I don’t have that kind of money. After speaking to a couple friends regarding my situation, I looked up, researched, and decided to order the Petsafe Stubborn dog fence PRO- Grade from FlexPetz. WOW! What a difference, Lurch was quick to learn where the perimeter of the yard is and since installation, he has not gotten out once. Setting the system up was relatively easy and the resulting security for Lurch is priceless. The past 6 months without an escape has meant the most to me as a professional and keeps me from being a hypocrite when ticketing people for failure to keep their own animals confined. I had to share that I have a changed outlook on underground pet containment and FlexPetz to thank for that, I have made countless recommendations since getting my system and will likely continue recommending this company to my customers. Easy to install, saved me a $1000 in fencing costs from the other company, keeps my dog safe and me from being ticketed myself. Thanks guys!! Review by AQualla S. (Posted on 11/3/2013)
