Putting aside the politics surrounding climate change, dogs have a very interesting story to tell us and weather just happens to have had a very important role in their narrative of how they came to be.
Dogs have long been known to be the natural inhabitants of North America. But what some may not know is that over 40 million years ago North American was quite warm, resembling in many ways a jungle like environment one would see in South America or Africa. Over time, as the climate changed and got significantly cooler, North American got much drier and vast amounts of land turned into open grass fields. This process, evidenced by fossils found, points to these events actually shaping the evolution of the dog.
In the end, “alterations in the global climate and their effects on vegetation lands and habitats are critical indicators of how ecological and evolutionary outcomes may appear in the future.”
Our potential as a species is largely undetermined. Every day we learn more about our past and its subsequent effects on what may lie ahead. As E.B. White put it,
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

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.
