eXtreme Dog Fence® Waterproof Splices (2 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.

The Most Advanced
Digital Pet Safety System
Because Your Pet Is
Counting On You

At Extreme Dog Fence, we understand the importance of electric fence upkeep. Our dog fences keep your pets safe, but if a malfunction occurs, all your hard work can lead to danger for your best friend.

Fence integrity can be greatly increased with the use of our Waterproof Splices.

Waterproof Splices: A Small Solution to a Big Problem

Waterproof Splices are very important in the installation process of your pet fence, as well as its longevity. In order for your pet fence to perform at its best, using them is necessary. First, our Waterproof Splices can be used during installation, to repair broken wire or replace your existing wire. This is a safety precaution. Even though our Boundary Wire is made with a high-quality polyethylene jacket, wires that are not spliced properly can still lead to corrosion.

On a small property, finding a corroded piece of wire may not be too hard to do. However, on a 5-acre plot of land that was dug with a trench, it is a different story. However, if you use our Waterproof Wire Splices, you are helping to prevent this situation from ever happening.

How They Work

All you need to do is take the ends of the two wires you want to connect, and twist the included wire nut around the ends. Next, insert the nut inside of the capsule. This encases and protects the joined wires with a tight, waterproof seal.

Our Waterproof Electric Dog Fence Splices can be used with all of the following gauges of dog fence wire: 20, 18, 16, 14 and 12. We guarantee quality as they are made in the USA.

Troubleshooting Your Electric Dog Fence

Are you already experiencing problems with your existing electric dog fence malfunctioning? Is your dog able to pass through the fence? If so, check your dog’s collar first. A collar that is too loose is likely the culprit. Another possibility is that the battery in the collar is dead. If that isn’t the issue, it is time to check the transmitter. Make sure that the indicator light is on and is working. If the light isn’t on, and nothing is happening, lightning may have made its way to your transmitter. To prevent this, we suggest connecting a surge protector to your transmitter.

The last thing to check would be your splice connections, and your dog fence wire. If your transmitter and collars are both working properly, it is time to inspect the wire. However, if you are using our Waterproof Splices, and a lightning surge protector, you should be safe from having to check your wire. If a problem still exists, you will need to dig up your wire to discover where the break is in the wire.

Extra Protection with a Lightning Surge Protector

Another great addition to using Waterproof Wire Splices is a lightning surge protector. Our Lightning Surge Protector plugs directly into a wall outlet. You plug in your transmitter to this. Should lightning strike your home or the boundary wire, the surge protector will prevent the transmitter from shorting. When lightning strikes and you don’t have a surge protector, this can make your dog fence transmitter completely useless. That means it is not a chance worth taking. Our Lightning Surge Protector is easily installed, and protects your investment.
