All dogs are good, but they are even better when trained.
OnGuard is great for training your dog any place, any time.
OnGuard emits a high-pitched tone specifically targeted for a dog's hearing range. Most humans can't even hear it. Don't worry though — there's an indicator light that shows you its working. Use the ultrasonic function to deter your dog from unwanted behaviors like barking or jumping on the furniture.
Quickly draw attention to your location by activating the loud, pulsating panic alarm. The optional safety alarm can be clicked on (and stay on) if needed in an emergency situation
OnGuard's high-powered LED light can be used like a traditional flashlight, or to help get the attention of an extra stubborn dog (as demonstrated in the video).Buy your OnGuard Now

OnGuard training tips: barking at the front door
You're familiar with the scene… Someone knocks at the door or rings the bell and your dog goes berserk. Frustrated you speed to the door, rehearsing your apology for whoever is on the other side.
With your OnGuard in hand, try this instead.
- As soon as your dog barks, calmly stand up and walk to the door. Never yell at your dog for barking, it will increase his energy level and make the problem worse.
- Step in front of the dog, positioning your body between him and the door.
- Point your OnGuard at the dog then press and hold the ultrasonic button.
- Take a step towards the dog, essentially using your body to push him back from the door.
For extra stubborn dogs you can activate the strobe light feature in addition to the ultrasonic sound.
- Once the dog has backed away from the door, let go of the sound & light buttons. Allow him to calm down for a moment and then open the door.
- Remember to reinforce your dog's good behavior, as soon as they do what you want. Give him a small treat / verbal praise / pet them to let them know you're happy with their good behavior. Keep your OnGuard close by so that when training opportunities come, you'll be ready.
Results are unlikely to be immediate. Training steps should be repeated as often as necessary to teach your dog when his behavior is not acceptable — but he should also be praised for his good behavior.
What is ultrasonic sound?
Ultrasonic sound is above the hearing range of humans, but is attention grabbing and irritating to dogs. This makes safe and effective tool for dog training. It quickly takes your dog's focus off of barking and towards the high-pitched sound.

Ultrasonic sound cannot travel through solid objects like walls or solid fences. Make sure OnGuard is in clear line of sight of the dog you wish to train or deter.

No. Although the ultrasonic sound emitted by OnGuard is a great tool for training, it is physically harmless to dogs.
Can I use this to train my puppy?
Due to the powerful nature of this product, we do not recommend it for use on puppies under 6 months old as they are still developing their hearing.
What's the blue light on top for?
The blue LED light on top of the unit indicates the ultrasonic button has been pressed and ultrasonic sound is being emitted.
What is the range?
The ultrasonic frequencies can be heard by dogs up to 50 feet away.
