Newtown's Invisible Fence Experts: Choosing the Right Electric Dog Fence Wire, Newtown, Connecticut

It's no secret that dogs love to run around in the backyard, but in order to keep them safe at home, it's prudent to invest in some sort of fencing. However, physical fencing isn't an option for everyone, which is why Invisible Fence of Newtown in Newtown, CT, provides a wide range of affordable invisible fencing for your pooch.

If you're looking for the best way to keep your dog happy and healthy outdoors, then the humane invisible fences from Invisible Fence of Newtown could be perfect for you. Let's take a closer look at how to choose the perfect electric fence wire for your dog fence:

  • Wire Durability: Like most wires, the wiring used in invisible dog fences comes in different sizes, anywhere from 14 to 20 gauges. Since it will ultimately be buried beneath the ground, a thicker wire will be more durable in most cases. Additionally, there are many brands of manufacturer grade wire made specifically for dog fences that is durable, as well as designed to be pet safe in case you've got a best friend who loves to dig.

  • Professional Grade Wire: Connecticut can have brutal winters, which is why some pet owners choose to invest in professional grade wiring for their electric dog fences. Although they’re a bit more expensive, professional grade wire are designed to handle freezing conditions, as well as the water exposure and general wear and tear wires receive from being buried underground for an extended period.
  • Signal Transmission: Likely, the gauge of wire you use won't have much of an impact on the actual signal of your invisible dog fence, unless it's running at capacity; using a thicker wire can increase its range, but only slightly. It is important, however, to make sure that the gauge of your wire is consistent throughout your electric dog fence to ensure the signal is consistent throughout. Many choose a thicker gauge of wire not because of signal reliability, but because they're less likely to be broken.
