P-Wire Dog Fence Boundary Wire 18 Gauge 500 Feet
This is 500 feet of Dog Fence Boundary Wire. The Dog Fence Boundary Wire is 18 Gauge wire.
Use the table below to determine exactly how much wire you’ll need based on the size of the area you want to secure. Keep in mind that creating interior loops to boundary off areas like gardens and swimming pools will use more wire. (Table assumes square layout; rectangular layouts may require more wire.)
||Amount of Wire
For larger areas, use the following formula: Multiply the total acreage by 43,560- i.e. 10 acres x 43,560 = 435,600
Find the square root of the above number - square root of 435,600 = 660 (this is the length of each side of a 10 acre area that is square in shape. Even if your area is not square, if you multiply this number by four, this is the approximate length of the four sides of a 10 acre area.)
Therefore, one would need approximately 2,640 feet of wire to enclose the perimeter of a 10 acre area. You will need additional wire to run from the transmitter to the perimeter and/or for any interior loops, etc.
