Electric Fence DIY Kit Recommendation and Experiences

Hi, I hope this is the right forum. I had the invisible fence installed professionally at my last home for my two dogs (GSD and GD) and it worked well for me. I know all the +/-'s of what it can and can't do. That said, I am thinking of installing it myself this time around. My property is about 1/3 of an acre and I would like to circle the entire property line and maybe pinch off a few feet of frontage. I have a loose plan.

There are lots available on Amazon. Any experiences? Wire gauge? I don't plan to bury it in the portions where it is woods. The invisible fence company really didn't either and its not necessary, but I will tuck it into the grass and also an existing straight cut in my driveway.

I would like to avoid putting the controller box in my garage and drilling into the house. Is there a kit that offers a controller that is weather proof? I have plenty of ground outlets I was hoping to plug into along the property line.
