The rolling dial on the side of our Dog Silencer unit is not a volume control.
This is the Bark Sensitivity dial, which tells the microphone how sensitive it needs to be in order to hear the barking dog. You want that dial set to your specific situation. If the dog is near the device, that dial should be fairly low, and if the dog is going to be farther away, that dial should be rolled higher.
You don’t want the microphone listening out further away than what is necessary, otherwise it might hear other environmental noises and the device could react to those and you don’t want that. You only want the DSM to activate when the dog barks to ensure effective training.
Bark Control with Puppies“Consider options like ThunderShirts, CBD treats, vibration collars, crate training, and extra exercise. A tired puppy is not a barking puppy!”
Returning to Work — What do our Pets think?Our pets may become confused and anxious as we get back to in-person work. Here's how you can help your best friend during this time.
Healthy Roots Paws™ Calming Pet ProductsAs we get closer to New Year's Eve, right now is the time to think about how you can help keep your pets calm during the festivities.
Opening the OnGuard Battery Compartment
We understand that the battery compartment on our OnGuard handheld training device can be somewhat tricky to open, and we are here to help. You'll see on the bottom of the device that there are 2 arrows near the slide. While holding the OnGuard with one hand, use your other thumb to move that slide in the direction of the arrow marked with a number 1. While the slide is in that position, push it towards the arrow marked with a number 2. Then you'll be able to flip that bottom piece up and insert your batteries.
Pro Tip: BarkWise Collar SizingThe length of the nylon collar strap can be adjusted from 6—24 inches.
