eXtreme Dog Fence® Waterproof Splices (8 pack)

How a Dog Fence Works

So you are thinking of getting an electric dog fence? An underground dog fence is an excellent choice for containing your dog. Let’s take a moment to talk about how an invisible dog fence works and why it is such a great solution for keeping your dog at home with you, where he or she belongs.

First, let’s establish that an underground fence, versus a wireless electric dog fence is a much better choice. Although wireless is effortless to install, there are many variables that can cause a wireless fence to fail. If you want the most dependable, customizable, best invisible dog fence available, read on to learn about how our American-manufactured eXtreme Dog Fence® works.

Components of an Inground Dog Fence

There are 3 crucial components of a pet containment system. These include dog fence wire, a dog fence transmitter, and a special receiver collar that your dog wears. The transmitter, located inside of your home, is the brains of the operation. It transmits a radio signal throughout your dog fence wire. Along with our manual our extreme videos help you learn how to program your transmitter with ease.

Your dog fence wire, which is buried around your property, creates a border that you have designed yourself. Although your border is customizable, you must always establish a complete loop back to your transmitter in order for the fence to work.

Your dog wears an invisible fence collar, which triggers when he approaches a predetermined distance in front of your dog fence wire. Your dog’s receiver collar is powered by Perimeter 6-volt Extreme invisible fence batteries.

Dog Fence Correction

The concept of static correction is the same as is used in dog behavior training. Here is what it feels like to your dog. Run across the carpet in your socks and then touch a doorknob. That is a static shock, which is similar to what the dog feels when he receives a static correction. With the eXtreme Dog Fence® there are 7 different levels of correction to choose from, in addition to a beep-only mode used for training.

A Word About Dog Fence Wire

There are many different gauges of wire available for your pet fence. You will find 20 gauge wire, 18 gauge, 16 gauge wire, and 14 gauge. With so many options, how does one know which wire to choose? Here is some advice from the experts.

Though 20 and 18 gauge wire is inexpensive, it is not an ideal choice. This is because it is thin and very vulnerable to breakage or wearing down over time. A cheap dog fence comes with this type of thin dog fence wire. Logically, you may be focused on finding a fence for sale at a low price point, but keep in mind that you get what you pay for.

16 gauge wire is a step in the right direction, but still not the best selection.

The best electric dog fence comes with 14 gauge dog fence wire. If you want your dog fence wire to last a long time, 14 gauge wire is the way to go, without a doubt. Our 14 gauge wire is designed to last a lifetime. It will not degrade, or break unless a blade is taken to it. In addition to this, the performance of your electric dog fence will be enhanced by its superior signal conductivity.

In fact, our 14 gauge dog fence wire is so durable that you don’t even need to bury it if you don’t want to. You can simply use fence staples to tack it to the top of the ground.

Waterproof Wire Splices: Solving a Big Problem With a Small Solution

Both the installation process of your dog fence, as well as its longevity depend on using waterproof wire splices. First of all, our Waterproof Wire Splices can be utilized to repair or replace your existing dog fence wire. Although our Boundary Wire is made with a high-quality polyethylene coating, if your wires are not spliced correctly, corrosion can be a result.

For example, on a small property, it may be easy to find a corroded piece of dog fence wire may be not so difficult. However on a property that has multiple acres with a trench that was dug, it would be much harder to do. To prevent this situation from happening, our Waterproof Wire Splices will protect your dog fence wire from corrosion.

Their Function

All that is needed is to take the ends of the two wires that you wish to connect and twist them together. Twist the included wire nut around the ends. Next, insert the wire nut inside of the capsule. This protects and encases the joined wires tightly, with a waterproof seal.

These waterproof Electric Dog Fence Splices can be used with each of the following gauges of dog fence wire including: 20, 18, 16, 14 and 12. Quality is guaranteed, as they are manufactured in the United States.

Help With Troubleshooting Your Electric Dog Fence

Perhaps you already have an existing electric dog fence. Is it malfunctioning? Is your dog able to get through the boundary you have created? If this is the case, check your dog’s collar firstly. It is very likely that a loose collar is the culprit. It is also possible that the battery in the collar has died. If that isn’t the case, it is time to check the transmitter. Be sure that the indicator light is illuminated and is working. If the light isn’t illuminated and nothing is happening, it is possible that lightning has made it through to your transmitter. To prevent this from happening, it is a good idea to connect your transmitter to a surge protector.

Let’s say that your collars and transmitter are both working properly. The final thing to do would be to check your dog fence wire, and your splice connections. With that being said, if you are using a lightning surge protector and waterproof wire splices, it is safe to say that you shouldn’t need to check your wire. If there is still a problem, you would need to dig up your dog fence wire to find out where the break is.

About Lightning Surge Protectors

In addition to using Waterproof Wire Splices, a lightning surge protector is highly recommended. Our Surge Protector plugs directly into the wall outlet. Your transmitter gets plugged directly into this. Let’s say lightning strikes your boundary wire or your home, the surge protector prevents the transmitter from shorting out. If lightning hits and you don’t have a surge protector, it can render your dog fence transmitter completely useless. This is a chance that isn’t worth taking. Easy to install, our Lighting Surge Protector will protect your investment.
