Ace tended to stand right in front of the iFetch as she was waiting for it to throw the ball. Understandably, this made me nervous, and I found myself hustling to aim the iFetch away from her before it tossed the ball. She did get hit with the ball a few times, and it didn’t seem to hurt or even startle her. On the iFetch , designers noted that they considered adding a sensor to prevent dogs from being struck but decided against it to keep costs low. They found their dogs, like Ace, weren’t disturbed by being struck, and some relished the challenge: “We’ve actually seen dogs catch the ball right out of the machine without incident.”

Playing fetch with your dog is fun to a point, but if your dog is a tireless ball retriever, check out the cool new . This innovative device is an automatic tennis ball launcher and throwing machine for dogs that could easily replace you as their new best friend. Just load it up with tennis balls, adjust the distance from 15' to 30' and set the launch interval from 7 to 15 seconds. It launches balls automatically, can be operated via remote control or, best of all, if you train your dog to drop the ball back into the machine, they can play on their own continuously for hours while you relax. It's a great idea, but hopefully the dog doesn't learn to insert other items like your slippers, cell phone and the family cat!
