On the front left side of the Dog Silencer MAX is a green LED light. This light will flash each time the device is activated (either by detecting the barking dog, or when you press the remote control). It will flash for 7-10 seconds (the amount of time that the ultrasonic sound is being emitted).
You want to make sure that you only see this flashing light when the dog is barking-and at no other time. If you notice that flashing light when the dog isn’t barking, then the microphone is probably hearing other environmental noises-and the device is activating to those noises. You’ll need to lower the microphone dial on the side of the Dog Silencer, so it is only picking up the barking dog.
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.
