How to Purchase Batteries

Purchase from your local DogWatch Dealer

Need a battery right away? Give your local dealer a call, or check their local website as many dealers offer on option to order batteries online. This is usually the quickest and easiest way to purchase a new battery. Your local dealer knows what you need and will make sure you get it. Your dealer can also make sure it is really the battery, and not something else like a wire break or problem with the transmitter or receiver.

For receivers that use a 6-month battery or a 4-month battery, you prepay for a year of batteries, so the renewal card will be sent with the final battery.
