Getting to know your pet is more than just walking and playing with them. Actually, if you really want to know your pet better, it is through activities like these, with slight deviations here and there that can provide vital information that could save your pet's life.
We all love babying our pets and they certainly love the attention. How about the next time you are pampering your dog or cat you do it with purpose and intent. The Snout-to-tail Assessment is one example of how you can incorporate normal activities you do with your pet every day that can have huge benefits in the long run to their quality of life. With this assessment you are creating a baseline of your pet's health by touching every area of your pet's body from snout to tail paying attention to anything that might seem abnormal.

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.
