How Much Does an Electric Fence Cost?


Electric fences, or invisible fences, keep your pets safe, while still giving them freedom to roam around the yard. The transmitter on the dog's collar emits a small frequency that keeps the dog from moving outside the area. Costs vary, depending on whether you do the job yourself or hire a professional.


  • The cost of professionally installing an electric fence usually relates to the size of the yard. It may cost up to $2,000 or more in 2011 for a basic fence that contains only one pet.

DIY Costs

  • Do-it-yourself electric fence kits cost $100 to $350 in 2011, according to Cost Helper. If you need additional wires or lines to encompass more space in your yard, expect to pay up to $70 per length of wire.


  • If you have more than one animal outside, you need to purchase additional collars. The cost for each additional collar is $55 to $130 in 2011, depending on the manufacturer of the electric fence.
