Halloween can be a fun time for your family… but then the doorbell rings and your usually calm dog turns into a deranged barking maniac. Strange people concealed behind costumes, ringing doorbells, and the sound of kids running down the street can cause your dog to panic and become consumed by anxiety.
It is important to understand that Halloween is not a good night to break out a bark control device, as the stress of the night is going to take precedence over any corrections you try to implement.
But there is still hope! With the tips below you can have a fun, stress-free night with your furry companion – whether you choose to stay in, or go out.
Following these tips will ensure that everyone has a safe and spooktacular Halloween! 🎃

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.
