  3. Turn product over into your hand and the batteries should slide out with some gentle tapping on your palm if necessary.


  4. Insert 2 fresh batteries under the 2 metal contact points/tongues with the « + » side facing up. Both batteries MUST be inserted under these metal contact points and should fit snugly.


  5. Replace the rubber O ring and re-screw the battery cover clockwise to its’ original position.
    DO NOT OVER ROTATE.
Dog e Alert!™ Flashing LED Collar

A. Instructions for Use
  1. Before use, unscrew the collar’s battery cover to remove the plastic insulation piece (battery protector) and screw to retighten.


  2. Activate or turn off the energy-saving mode of the flashing lights by pressing the « on/off » button. Only 2 or 3 lights will flash in this mode. OR


  3. To activate the full multi-coloured flashing mode on startup, press and hold the « on/off » button for up to 5 seconds. To turn off, simply hold again for up to 5 seconds until lights stop flashing.


  4. TO ACTIVATE YOUR Dog e Alert!™ LOSS PREVENTION DEVICE:
  • Once the collar's lights are turned on, you may choose to activate the anti-loss device. (Note: In the case of our stand alone Dog e Alert!™ device, simply turn on the emitter.) Turn on the receiver’s red indicator light by pushing the side switch downward to “N” position and keep with you. Adjust the roller on the side of the receiver upward to increase the desired range. Your anti-loss receiver will buzz/vibrate when the dog has exceeded the allotted distance.


  • For Search Mode, push receiver switch up to « S » and it will beep if the collar is out of the desired range PLUS when the receiver comes back within the desired range it will beep + vibrate. To reset, simply touch the dog’s collar with the receiver or turn to off position.
All or Some of Your Dog e Lites™ Won't Light Up?
  • Are the batteries weak or dead? Try changing the batteries to see the difference.

  • Could the product have been chewed? Even if there is no noticeable hole, if it has been chewed even briefly the electronic components may be damaged so that it will not operate correctly.

  • Are the batteries snug under the top 2 metal contact points? If not sure, remove the batteries and adjust the contacts to make a tighter fit.

  • Has the battery cover been reinstalled properly? If unsure, gently retighten to ensure correct pressure on the batteries for reliable operation. Over-rotation of the battery box cover can cause problems with electronic connections.

  • Are some lights dimmer than other lights? This is normal as the battery life progresses, since some LED colours draw more power than others. This difference should however have minimal impact on the lights' effectiveness and visibility at night, and will disappear when fresh batteries are inserted.

Dog e Lites™ Battery Requirements

All Dog e Lites™ and Kit e Lites™ flashing LED accessories require 2 x CR1220 lithium batteries in the case of XS or S/M accessories, OR 2 x CR2032 lithium batteries in the case of L/XL accessories. Dog e Alert!™ Loss-prevention remote device requires 1 x AAA battery.

CAUTION:
These fashion products are intended to assist the owner in managing his animal and should not be used to replace responsible human supervision. Dog e Lites™ assumes no responsibility for loss, escape or injury while its product is in use.



Dog e Alert!™ Pet Loss Prevention Device

This Dog e Alert!™ loss-prevention device is designed to warn of a wayward animal
(dog, cat, etc) or any mobile item and is effective up to approximately 25 yards / meters.


Instructions for Use
  1. Attach the smaller transmitter portion to a pet collar or any item and TURN ON using the tiny switch. The transmitter’s red indicator light will then flash.


  2. To activate your Dog e Alert!™ loss-prevention device:
  • Turn on the receiver’s red indicator light by pushing the side switch downward to the « N » position. Bring the receiver close to the transmitter to hear a double beep. This double beep confirms that the receiver has recognized the transmitter and is ready to work.


  • Adjust the roller on the side of the receiver upward to increase the desired range. Your Dog e Alert!™ receiver will buzz/vibrate when the animal has exceeded the allotted distance.


  • For Search Mode, push receiver switch up to « S ». It will beep when the transmitter leaves out of the desired range PLUS it will beep + vibrate when it returns within the desired range. To reset, simply touch the transmitter portion with the receiver or turn the receiver to the center
    « off » position.

Dog e Alert!™ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

As every Dog e Alert!™ loss-prevention device is individually tested by our manufacturers to ensure the lowest possible failure rate, please find below some of the most common pitfalls that can inhibit effective use and how to eliminate them to obtain the results you deserve:

WHAT CAN I DO IF MY DOG E ALERT!™ JUST BEEPS ALL THE TIME?

Ensure the Transmitter is Turned On:
  • If the device beeps non-stop regardless of the range you set, this may mean that the tiny switch on the transmitter is not turned on. Please ensure that it is TURNED ON before use. You can tell that the transmitter is turned on when the tiny red light flashes. Both pieces must be turned on in order for the device to work. The best way to proceed is to turn on the transmitter first, and then the receiver.
Use the Correct Receiver Setting:
  • One possible source of confusion is the « N » (normal) setting versus the « S » (search) setting. When turning on the receiver in normal lossprevention mode, push the button downward to the « N » setting, and then use the dial to adjust the range from lowest (downward) to highest (upward). If the receiver button is pushed upward to search « S » mode and the animal is within the range, the device will beep non-stop to indicate that it has found its’ target.
Enable the Transmitter – Receiver Handshake:
  • Once you have turned both portions of the device on, it is important that the two pieces be placed near each other to enable a recognition handshake, which enables the transmitter to identify its target (the receiver). You will hear this handshake in the form of a double beep when you first put them together (after which beeping stops), which confirms that they are in synch and ready to work. This handshake is necessary for the device to work correctly.
Check for Absent or Dead Batteries:
  • The transmitter includes a CR2032 battery and the receiver requires a AAA battery (not included) that must be inserted before the device will work. If after a while the device starts to act “flakey”, this could mean a weakening battery in either portion. If the transmitter battery is the culprit, the red light will have stopped flashing indicating a loss of power. To learn if the receiver battery is the culprit, replace the AAA battery and test for different results. Ensure correct battery insertion in both cases.


HOW CAN I MANAGE OR IMPROVE VARIABLE DISTANCE WARNINGS?

Variable Distance Warnings:
  • All distance estimates are approximate and will vary. As the device’s antenna is embedded within the transmitter loop, the straighter the loop hangs, the better the range. The device is effective up to a maximum of 25 meters / 75 feet or less, and will vary somewhat in each environment based on a number of factors, including the nature and composition of items between the device and your pet (ie: walls, trees, structures, etc), other radio-frequencies active in the immediate area, humidity level, etc. Please keep in mind that Dog e Alert!™ is a simple technology, at significantly lower cost and complexity compared with other pet locator solutions such as GPS. Correctly used, it offers substantial value at a reasonable cost.

    If after eliminating each of the above possible causes of the problem, you believe your Dog e
    Alert!™
    unit to be defective, we will be happy to exchange it or issue you a full credit upon
    receipt of the unit. For further questions or inquiries, please contact us by email at info@doge-lites.com or by telephone at 514.708.3224.
