Benefits of Using Waterproof Splices
Easy to Install: One of the most daunting issues facing dog fence users is installation. Using dog fence staples is an easy alternative to digging deep trenches below the ground. The pressure from your hand is enough to push the staples into the ground. The other benefit of placing your electric dog fence boundary wire with staples? There’s less likelihood of loss of signal.
Multi-Purpose: Dog fence staples aren’t just for electric fences. Use them to secure garden plants, netting, sun screens, irrigation systems, etc. There are many ways to utilize these handy little tools!
Appropriate for Foot Traffic: Do you have a lot of people walking over the boundary wire? That’s fine! Just secure the wire well every 2 to 5 feet to reduce tripping hazards. As a reminder, use an edger to create a 1-inch deep impression into the soil in order to reduce any wear and tear caused by foot traffic. If not, again, just mow the grass very short so that you can install the wire snugly.
An Easier Option Than Digging a Trench
The most labor-intensive aspect of installing your own electric pet fence has to be the digging and burying of boundary wire. For most homes, just laying the wire and stapling to the ground along fence posts, driveways, patios, and sidewalks is an easy, fast way to get the job done.
