    iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs – Launches Mini Tennis Balls, Small []  2019-12-18 18:9

    I was so excited to test this, and so disappointed in the results. It might be fine for a little dog that doesn't require running far distances, but for larger dogs, it does not work. My biggest complaint is that the balls do not release at a consistent distance. The first ball will launch, but as soon as the tennis ball gets slightly wet, which it after the first grab, it barely launches at all. The ball become stuck, the machine needs to be turned off to obtain it out, turned back on and then is shoots out maybe five feet. To hold it going I would need to have a fleet of tennis balls, and that defeats the purpose of having the dog drop them in the machine. For the expensive tag, this item is a complete bust. I will be returning the iFetch Too.

    iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs – Launches Mini Tennis Balls, Small []  2019-12-18 18:9

    My husband bought this for our 1.5yr old border collie to use when we're gone. It took a couple of mins to teacher her to self use s: she gets tired from it and is actually able to self use it. Not sure about other breeds, but a border collie is simple to train with ns:*After fully charging it, the Low Battery indicator pops up after about 10 launches. So it has stayed plugged in. So battery is an issue....*If most definitely does not begin 40ft, maybe 15-20. It is on the correct setting, all the blue lights are on.*It gets super slobbery and then it doesn't seem to begin as far. I dry it out, but it just keeps happening.*There's some weird build up inside from all the slobber and hairs from the ball so I'm worried that the spinners that begin the ball might obtain super nasty and not work.*A few times the ball has dropped down and didn't begin and I had to place a second ball in to obtain the first to shoot out. My not good dog gets frustrated and hasn't learned (yet) to obtain another ball and test it.*It doesn't come with a sensor for pet safety. I have stuck my hand out in front to see if it would hurt, and it definitely would if it hit the right spot. With a sensor, it might give her a small more time to run after she puts the ball in.Overall it does create her tired, but I don't think it's going to last.

    I usually do not take the time to write reviews but in this case wanted to clear some mis-information in other reviews.1. The Launcher does not shut down after 60 seconds it just goes into sleep mode and the second you place a ball in it wakes up.2. Distance might not be 40 feet but it is beautiful darn good.We have Three German Shepherds (two who are just turning 1 year old) and one is extremely fetch and throw obsessed to the point we were all being driven crazy. We set the unit up and in less than 10 mins he was having the time of his life and we had peace. He and the other dogs had to learn the hard method that when the ball goes in and it makes its noise watch out or be beaned and we have found that tennis balls work the best.

    Absolutely love this and so does my dog. The only thing keeping me from giving a five star rating is the balls. They are kind of and don't latest long. My dog is only 4 pounds and he kills the balls in less than a week. The replacement balls are very expensive 5 for $25. I did search that the Kong 1.5 inch squeaker balls work amazing and are WAY less expensive. All and all I highly recommend!!

    I purchased this on August 27, 2016 and have been using it to this day with my German Shepherd puppy. In terms of battery life and launching distance, it seems to perform just under the advertised 10, 15, 40 feet begin distance. I have had no issues with the battery when it is used, though more often than not since we use this indoors exclusively it is plugged in most of the seemed like it would keep up fine at first getting light use but as time has gone on and my dog has learned to use it himself, combined with his insatiable fetch lust the rubber gears that begin the ball just don't seem like they are going to keep up in the long run. The rubber has started to rub away and more and more often I hear the sounds of the ball being launched once or twice, then a hissy fit of a tantrum while my dog paws at the machine because the ball gets stuck. I can't allow him use it unless I am personally around to unstick it as no one else will, and he takes out his frustration on the machine, chewing up the rubber feet and recently the blue ring in the front. I want the rubber held up better and sadly I am experiencing these issues just after the 6 month warranty passed so I'm out of luck.Overall I will say the machine works for the most part as advertised, and my dog loves it to bits, but it just doesn't seem it's going to latest much longer with the gears wearing away. If you have a dog who adamantly plays fetch while this may hold him happy, if its used a lot don't expect it to latest more than a year.Edit: iFetch Customer help did reached out to me and allow me know that it is in fact a 1 year warranty and not 6 months. I got in touch with them and they offered to not only send a brand fresh unit to replace the faulty one, but also for the return shipping on the old one. I was very impressed that they did that small additional and I am happy to report no problems with the fresh unit so far, though time will tell. I will say the unit definitely did not work the second it was plugged in, but after a 14 hour charge time it worked perfectly so if your unit doesn't work right out of the box, give it time to charge and test again. Thanks iFetch!

    iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs – Launches Mini Tennis Balls, Small []  2019-12-20 18:6

    This device is intended for people who wish to teach their dogs to place a ball into the machine, have the machine throw the ball a controlled distance, and then when the dog has chased the ball, have the dog able to return and drop the ball again into the machine - it's intended to be a self-fetching is is not a self-fetching machine for dogs.I ran the machine for a few runs in my family room. The engineering is not good for the following reasons:Most significantly, this machine has been designed to work on battery, so when it is plugged in, it is really only in "charge" mode. That in itself is not a huge - but the machine has been designed to aggressively protect battery life - so after about 60 seconds, if the machine has detected no ball, it turns itself completely off.What this means in doggie life is that if your rover doesn't obtain that ball and drop it in the machine in 60 seconds, and you aren't there to push the little power button, the machine ceases to work, and doggie is just left facing a machine that isn't doing anything with a ball stuck e second major engineering flaw is that, while this machine uses tennis balls as its ammunition, it uses two spinning wheels as the throwing mechanism. If you, like me, have a dog who likes to chew a ball before getting to the next throw, the ball will eventually have some puncture holes. These holes change the resistance of the tennis ball to the throwing wheels so instead of creating pressure to throw the ball very far, the machine limply burps the ball out only a few feet.Ultimately, using solid balls would potentially solve the wheel/deflated ball issue - but the "instant off, no recovery" power issue is a intention was to set this thing up in the basement family room, and on a rainy day, give my puppy a treat by taking her down there, turning on the machine, pushing the button and letting her do her thing with the ball, return, chase loop (with training).You CANNOT use this device for dog "self-entertainment" -- the power will go off and the dog's android game is over. The auto-off timer is a GRAVE flaw and created this a return item for me.

    OK so first off, the item is exactly as pictured and described. That being said there are a few potential changes that would be ideal and let me to give 5 stars instead of 3....The drop shaft cone should be higher so when balls are dropped in, they don't bounce/fall out. It would also let more balls to be placed in at once for prep in e shooter needs to adjusted, or the mechanism reconfigured, so that only 1 ball is released at a time. Instead, at least on the little one, it shoots 2-3 at a stly, it would be super amazing if this thing worked through an application to provide remote control of the ifetch - that'd be a complete android game tom line, the dogs love it and hopefully they'll learn how to consistently drop the balls in on their own.

     Just to begin with, I hate the customer service because of the first ver of iFetch. They are not friendly and not interested in helping.Even though the first one was a large failure for my dog (everything was a limitation) and their customer service was horrible, I had to test out the "iFetch too" ver with fear but backed up by amazon perfect service, I could take that dog is a boston terrier 2 yr old and is very active. His play time involves ball for more than 5 hrs a day. So we wanted something like this and since he was already trained on the first generation of the ifetch, he immediately realized that it is a bigger ver and started playing on it from day 1 of the machines arrival. He has been playing with it indoors and outdoors for almost every day 2 hrs total for the past 5 months. I repeat: every day 2 hrs for the past 5 months and the machine has not shown any symptoms of breaking down like the one before. So there is no need to contact customer service as of now. I do charge it every day, clean it once every 2 weeks, especially when he plays outside with it. When playing outside, we tend to monitor him and change tennis balls frequently to avoid the slobber problem, since it slows down the tennis ball. Also, when the tennis ball is more wet, he tends to catch at the opening it self rather than chasing it. We use Penn tennis balls for this and they seem to work well.He can be considered as a beta tester for this model and he is pushing limits of the machine even when I am writing this review. He does play by himself now and takes rest in between and plays again and goes on doing that. Will definitely be interested to more of their products in future and definitely will recommend this version.******Update*****Still going powerful after having it for 9 months now. Just continuing to clean and change tennis balls when they obtain too wet. Still recommend and 5 stars******Update*******More than a year now and still going super strong. I just opened up the back of the iFetch to clean and found a lot of grass (my dog plays outdoor) and ball fur stuck in there (see pic). Cleaning was simple and it is amazing to go again.******Update*******Finally after 1.8 years of service the iFetch crashed on us. The rubber rolls inside eroded and item is broke now. Ordering one more now.

    My family of 6 COTON DE TULEAR dogs love the I fetch! One of my males ripped the blue rings off when he gets hyped up waiting for the ball to fly so I spayed them with bitter apple. Hes inpatient at times. I [email protected]#$%! could fit bigger balls like the XSMALL rubber CHUCKIT ULTRA BOUNCE BALLS!! Not tennis ball type. Unfortunately the chuckit won't fit. The balls are JUNK and i threw all of them away. I replaced them with KONG XSMALL Sqeeky balls that come 3 in a pack. Their 10 times durable then the Ifetch ball. cheaper! fly better! bounce better and latest longer.

    Bought this for my 12 pound toy fox terrier. He LOVES it! We can play for hours. I was hesitant at first because of the size of the balls, but now that I've seen him with them I'm not worried. It is sooooo much fun! *CAUTION- don't play for long periods of time on carpet. The pads of his feet became bloody and red from running and sliding across the floor to wall carpeting in my house. We now play outside in the grass and have had no issues.* Simple to travel with. I would this item again and recommend it to others.

    I usually do not take the time to write reviews but in this case wanted to clear some mis-information in other reviews.1. The Launcher does not shut down after 60 seconds it just goes into sleep mode and the second you place a ball in it wakes up.2.

    OK so first off, the item is exactly as pictured and described. That being said there are a few potential changes that would be ideal and let me to give 5 stars instead of 3....The drop shaft cone should be higher so when balls are dropped in, they don't bounce/fall out. It would also let more balls to be placed in at once for prep in e shooter needs to adjusted, or the mechanism reconfigured, so that only 1 ball is released at a time. Instead, at least on the little one, it shoots 2-3 at a stly, it would be super amazing if this thing worked through an application to provide remote control of the ifetch - that'd be a complete android game tom line, the dogs love it and hopefully they'll learn how to consistently drop the balls in on their own.

    My family of 6 COTON DE TULEAR dogs love the I fetch! One of my males ripped the blue rings off when he gets hyped up waiting for the ball to fly so I spayed them with bitter apple. Hes inpatient at times. I [email protected]#$%! could fit bigger balls like the XSMALL rubber CHUCKIT ULTRA BOUNCE BALLS!! Not tennis ball type. Unfortunately the chuckit won't fit. The balls are JUNK and i threw all of them away. I replaced them with KONG XSMALL Sqeeky balls that come 3 in a pack. Their 10 times durable then the Ifetch ball. cheaper! fly better! bounce better and latest longer.

    I was so excited to test this, and so disappointed in the results. It might be fine for a little dog that doesn't require running far distances, but for larger dogs, it does not work. My biggest complaint is that the balls do not release at a consistent distance. The first ball will launch, but as soon as the tennis ball gets slightly wet, which it after the first grab, it barely launches at all. The ball become stuck, the machine needs to be turned off to obtain it out, turned back on and then is shoots out maybe five feet. To hold it going I would need to have a fleet of tennis balls, and that defeats the purpose of having the dog drop them in the machine. For the expensive tag, this item is a complete bust. I will be returning the iFetch Too.

    This device is intended for people who wish to teach their dogs to place a ball into the machine, have the machine throw the ball a controlled distance, and then when the dog has chased the ball, have the dog able to return and drop the ball again into the machine - it's intended to be a self-fetching is is not a self-fetching machine for dogs.I ran the machine for a few runs in my family room. The engineering is not good for the following reasons:Most significantly, this machine has been designed to work on battery, so when it is plugged in, it is really only in "charge" mode. That in itself is not a huge - but the machine has been designed to aggressively protect battery life - so after about 60 seconds, if the machine has detected no ball, it turns itself completely off.What this means in doggie life is that if your rover doesn't obtain that ball and drop it in the machine in 60 seconds, and you aren't there to push the little power button, the machine ceases to work, and doggie is just left facing a machine that isn't doing anything with a ball stuck e second major engineering flaw is that, while this machine uses tennis balls as its ammunition, it uses two spinning wheels as the throwing mechanism. If you, like me, have a dog who likes to chew a ball before getting to the next throw, the ball will eventually have some puncture holes. These holes change the resistance of the tennis ball to the throwing wheels so instead of creating pressure to throw the ball very far, the machine limply burps the ball out only a few feet.Ultimately, using solid balls would potentially solve the wheel/deflated ball issue - but the "instant off, no recovery" power issue is a intention was to set this thing up in the basement family room, and on a rainy day, give my puppy a treat by taking her down there, turning on the machine, pushing the button and letting her do her thing with the ball, return, chase loop (with training).You CANNOT use this device for dog "self-entertainment" -- the power will go off and the dog's android game is over. The auto-off timer is a GRAVE flaw and created this a return item for me.

    I usually do not take the time to write reviews but in this case wanted to clear some mis-information in other reviews.1. The Launcher does not shut down after 60 seconds it just goes into sleep mode and the second you place a ball in it wakes up.2. Distance might not be 40 feet but it is beautiful darn good.We have Three German Shepherds (two who are just turning 1 year old) and one is extremely fetch and throw obsessed to the point we were all being driven crazy. We set the unit up and in less than 10 mins he was having the time of his life and we had peace. He and the other dogs had to learn the hard method that when the ball goes in and it makes its noise watch out or be beaned and we have found that tennis balls work the best.

    My husband bought this for our 1.5yr old border collie to use when we're gone. It took a couple of mins to teacher her to self use s: she gets tired from it and is actually able to self use it. Not sure about other breeds, but a border collie is simple to train with ns:*After fully charging it, the Low Battery indicator pops up after about 10 launches. So it has stayed plugged in. So battery is an issue....*If most definitely does not begin 40ft, maybe 15-20. It is on the correct setting, all the blue lights are on.*It gets super slobbery and then it doesn't seem to begin as far. I dry it out, but it just keeps happening.*There's some weird build up inside from all the slobber and hairs from the ball so I'm worried that the spinners that begin the ball might obtain super nasty and not work.*A few times the ball has dropped down and didn't begin and I had to place a second ball in to obtain the first to shoot out. My not good dog gets frustrated and hasn't learned (yet) to obtain another ball and test it.*It doesn't come with a sensor for pet safety. I have stuck my hand out in front to see if it would hurt, and it definitely would if it hit the right spot. With a sensor, it might give her a small more time to run after she puts the ball in.Overall it does create her tired, but I don't think it's going to last.

     Just to begin with, I hate the customer service because of the first ver of iFetch. They are not friendly and not interested in helping.Even though the first one was a large failure for my dog (everything was a limitation) and their customer service was horrible, I had to test out the "iFetch too" ver with fear but backed up by amazon perfect service, I could take that dog is a boston terrier 2 yr old and is very active. His play time involves ball for more than 5 hrs a day. So we wanted something like this and since he was already trained on the first generation of the ifetch, he immediately realized that it is a bigger ver and started playing on it from day 1 of the machines arrival. He has been playing with it indoors and outdoors for almost every day 2 hrs total for the past 5 months. I repeat: every day 2 hrs for the past 5 months and the machine has not shown any symptoms of breaking down like the one before. So there is no need to contact customer service as of now. I do charge it every day, clean it once every 2 weeks, especially when he plays outside with it. When playing outside, we tend to monitor him and change tennis balls frequently to avoid the slobber problem, since it slows down the tennis ball. Also, when the tennis ball is more wet, he tends to catch at the opening it self rather than chasing it. We use Penn tennis balls for this and they seem to work well.He can be considered as a beta tester for this model and he is pushing limits of the machine even when I am writing this review. He does play by himself now and takes rest in between and plays again and goes on doing that. Will definitely be interested to more of their products in future and definitely will recommend this version.******Update*****Still going powerful after having it for 9 months now. Just continuing to clean and change tennis balls when they obtain too wet. Still recommend and 5 stars******Update*******More than a year now and still going super strong. I just opened up the back of the iFetch to clean and found a lot of grass (my dog plays outdoor) and ball fur stuck in there (see pic). Cleaning was simple and it is amazing to go again.******Update*******Finally after 1.8 years of service the iFetch crashed on us. The rubber rolls inside eroded and item is broke now. Ordering one more now.

    Bought this for my 12 pound toy fox terrier. He LOVES it! We can play for hours. I was hesitant at first because of the size of the balls, but now that I've seen him with them I'm not worried. It is sooooo much fun! *CAUTION- don't play for long periods of time on carpet. The pads of his feet became bloody and red from running and sliding across the floor to wall carpeting in my house. We now play outside in the grass and have had no issues.* Simple to travel with. I would this item again and recommend it to others.

    I purchased this on August 27, 2016 and have been using it to this day with my German Shepherd puppy. In terms of battery life and launching distance, it seems to perform just under the advertised 10, 15, 40 feet begin distance. I have had no issues with the battery when it is used, though more often than not since we use this indoors exclusively it is plugged in most of the seemed like it would keep up fine at first getting light use but as time has gone on and my dog has learned to use it himself, combined with his insatiable fetch lust the rubber gears that begin the ball just don't seem like they are going to keep up in the long run. The rubber has started to rub away and more and more often I hear the sounds of the ball being launched once or twice, then a hissy fit of a tantrum while my dog paws at the machine because the ball gets stuck. I can't allow him use it unless I am personally around to unstick it as no one else will, and he takes out his frustration on the machine, chewing up the rubber feet and recently the blue ring in the front. I want the rubber held up better and sadly I am experiencing these issues just after the 6 month warranty passed so I'm out of luck.Overall I will say the machine works for the most part as advertised, and my dog loves it to bits, but it just doesn't seem it's going to latest much longer with the gears wearing away. If you have a dog who adamantly plays fetch while this may hold him happy, if its used a lot don't expect it to latest more than a year.Edit: iFetch Customer help did reached out to me and allow me know that it is in fact a 1 year warranty and not 6 months. I got in touch with them and they offered to not only send a brand fresh unit to replace the faulty one, but also for the return shipping on the old one. I was very impressed that they did that small additional and I am happy to report no problems with the fresh unit so far, though time will tell. I will say the unit definitely did not work the second it was plugged in, but after a 14 hour charge time it worked perfectly so if your unit doesn't work right out of the box, give it time to charge and test again. Thanks iFetch!

    Absolutely love this and so does my dog. The only thing keeping me from giving a five star rating is the balls. They are kind of and don't latest long. My dog is only 4 pounds and he kills the balls in less than a week. The replacement balls are very expensive 5 for $25. I did search that the Kong 1.5 inch squeaker balls work amazing and are WAY less expensive. All and all I highly recommend!!

     Just to begin with, I hate the customer service because of the first ver of iFetch. They are not friendly and not interested in helping.Even though the first one was a large failure for my dog (everything was a limitation) and their customer service was horrible, I had to test out the "iFetch too" ver with fear but backed up by amazon perfect service, I could take that dog is a boston terrier 2 yr old and is very active. His play time involves ball for more than 5 hrs a day. So we wanted something like this and since he was already trained on the first generation of the ifetch, he immediately realized that it is a bigger ver and started playing on it from day 1 of the machines arrival. He has been playing with it indoors and outdoors for almost every day 2 hrs total for the past 5 months. I repeat: every day 2 hrs for the past 5 months and the machine has not shown any symptoms of breaking down like the one before. So there is no need to contact customer service as of now. I do charge it every day, clean it once every 2 weeks, especially when he plays outside with it. When playing outside, we tend to monitor him and change tennis balls frequently to avoid the slobber problem, since it slows down the tennis ball. Also, when the tennis ball is more wet, he tends to catch at the opening it self rather than chasing it. We use Penn tennis balls for this and they seem to work well.He can be considered as a beta tester for this model and he is pushing limits of the machine even when I am writing this review. He does play by himself now and takes rest in between and plays again and goes on doing that. Will definitely be interested to more of their products in future and definitely will recommend this version.******Update*****Still going powerful after having it for 9 months now. Just continuing to clean and change tennis balls when they obtain too wet. Still recommend and 5 stars******Update*******More than a year now and still going super strong. I just opened up the back of the iFetch to clean and found a lot of grass (my dog plays outdoor) and ball fur stuck in there (see pic). Cleaning was simple and it is amazing to go again.******Update*******Finally after 1.8 years of service the iFetch crashed on us. The rubber rolls inside eroded and item is broke now.

    My family of 6 COTON DE TULEAR dogs love the I fetch! One of my males ripped the blue rings off when he gets hyped up waiting for the ball to fly so I spayed them with bitter apple. Hes inpatient at times. I [email protected]#$%! could fit bigger balls like the XSMALL rubber CHUCKIT ULTRA BOUNCE BALLS!! Not tennis ball type. Unfortunately the chuckit won't fit. The balls are JUNK and i threw all of them away. I replaced them with KONG XSMALL Sqeeky balls that come 3 in a pack. Their 10 times durable then the Ifetch ball. cheaper! fly better! bounce better and latest longer.

    iFetch Too Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs – Launches Standard Tennis Balls, Large []  2019-12-24 18:9

    This device is intended for people who wish to teach their dogs to place a ball into the machine, have the machine throw the ball a controlled distance, and then when the dog has chased the ball, have the dog able to return and drop the ball again into the machine - it's intended to be a self-fetching is is not a self-fetching machine for dogs.I ran the machine for a few runs in my family room. The engineering is not good for the following reasons:Most significantly, this machine has been designed to work on battery, so when it is plugged in, it is really only in "charge" mode. That in itself is not a huge - but the machine has been designed to aggressively protect battery life - so after about 60 seconds, if the machine has detected no ball, it turns itself completely off.What this means in doggie life is that if your rover doesn't obtain that ball and drop it in the machine in 60 seconds, and you aren't there to push the little power button, the machine ceases to work, and doggie is just left facing a machine that isn't doing anything with a ball stuck e second major engineering flaw is that, while this machine uses tennis balls as its ammunition, it uses two spinning wheels as the throwing mechanism. If you, like me, have a dog who likes to chew a ball before getting to the next throw, the ball will eventually have some puncture holes. These holes change the resistance of the tennis ball to the throwing wheels so instead of creating pressure to throw the ball very far, the machine limply burps the ball out only a few feet.Ultimately, using solid balls would potentially solve the wheel/deflated ball issue - but the "instant off, no recovery" power issue is a intention was to set this thing up in the basement family room, and on a rainy day, give my puppy a treat by taking her down there, turning on the machine, pushing the button and letting her do her thing with the ball, return, chase loop (with training).You CANNOT use this device for dog "self-entertainment" -- the power will go off and the dog's android game is over. The auto-off timer is a GRAVE flaw and created this a return item for me.

    I purchased this on August 27, 2016 and have been using it to this day with my German Shepherd puppy. In terms of battery life and launching distance, it seems to perform just under the advertised 10, 15, 40 feet begin distance. I have had no issues with the battery when it is used, though more often than not since we use this indoors exclusively it is plugged in most of the seemed like it would keep up fine at first getting light use but as time has gone on and my dog has learned to use it himself, combined with his insatiable fetch lust the rubber gears that begin the ball just don't seem like they are going to keep up in the long run. The rubber has started to rub away and more and more often I hear the sounds of the ball being launched once or twice, then a hissy fit of a tantrum while my dog paws at the machine because the ball gets stuck. I can't allow him use it unless I am personally around to unstick it as no one else will, and he takes out his frustration on the machine, chewing up the rubber feet and recently the blue ring in the front. I want the rubber held up better and sadly I am experiencing these issues just after the 6 month warranty passed so I'm out of luck.Overall I will say the machine works for the most part as advertised, and my dog loves it to bits, but it just doesn't seem it's going to latest much longer with the gears wearing away. If you have a dog who adamantly plays fetch while this may hold him happy, if its used a lot don't expect it to latest more than a year.Edit: iFetch Customer help did reached out to me and allow me know that it is in fact a 1 year warranty and not 6 months. I got in touch with them and they offered to not only send a brand fresh unit to replace the faulty one, but also for the return shipping on the old one. I was very impressed that they did that small additional and I am happy to report no problems with the fresh unit so far, though time will tell. I will say the unit definitely did not work the second it was plugged in, but after a 14 hour charge time it worked perfectly so if your unit doesn't work right out of the box, give it time to charge and test again. Thanks iFetch!

    Absolutely love this and so does my dog. The only thing keeping me from giving a five star rating is the balls. They are kind of and don't latest long. My dog is only 4 pounds and he kills the balls in less than a week. The replacement balls are very expensive 5 for $25. I did search that the Kong 1.5 inch squeaker balls work amazing and are WAY less expensive. All and all I highly recommend!!

    iFetch Too Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs – Launches Standard Tennis Balls, Large []  2019-12-26 18:10

    I was so excited to test this, and so disappointed in the results. It might be fine for a little dog that doesn't require running far distances, but for larger dogs, it does not work. My biggest complaint is that the balls do not release at a consistent distance. The first ball will launch, but as soon as the tennis ball gets slightly wet, which it after the first grab, it barely launches at all. The ball become stuck, the machine needs to be turned off to obtain it out, turned back on and then is shoots out maybe five feet. To hold it going I would need to have a fleet of tennis balls, and that defeats the purpose of having the dog drop them in the machine. For the expensive tag, this item is a complete bust. I will be returning the iFetch Too.

    OK so first off, the item is exactly as pictured and described. That being said there are a few potential changes that would be ideal and let me to give 5 stars instead of 3....The drop shaft cone should be higher so when balls are dropped in, they don't bounce/fall out. It would also let more balls to be placed in at once for prep in e shooter needs to adjusted, or the mechanism reconfigured, so that only 1 ball is released at a time. Instead, at least on the little one, it shoots 2-3 at a stly, it would be super amazing if this thing worked through an application to provide remote control of the ifetch - that'd be a complete android game tom line, the dogs love it and hopefully they'll learn how to consistently drop the balls in on their own.

    Bought this for my 12 pound toy fox terrier. He LOVES it! We can play for hours. I was hesitant at first because of the size of the balls, but now that I've seen him with them I'm not worried. It is sooooo much fun! *CAUTION- don't play for long periods of time on carpet. The pads of his feet became bloody and red from running and sliding across the floor to wall carpeting in my house. We now play outside in the grass and have had no issues.* Simple to travel with. I would this item again and recommend it to others.

    I purchased this on August 27, 2016 and have been using it to this day with my German Shepherd puppy. In terms of battery life and launching distance, it seems to perform just under the advertised 10, 15, 40 feet begin distance. I have had no issues with the battery when it is used, though more often than not since we use this indoors exclusively it is plugged in most of the seemed like it would keep up fine at first getting light use but as time has gone on and my dog has learned to use it himself, combined with his insatiable fetch lust the rubber gears that begin the ball just don't seem like they are going to keep up in the long run. The rubber has started to rub away and more and more often I hear the sounds of the ball being launched once or twice, then a hissy fit of a tantrum while my dog paws at the machine because the ball gets stuck. I can't allow him use it unless I am personally around to unstick it as no one else will, and he takes out his frustration on the machine, chewing up the rubber feet and recently the blue ring in the front. I want the rubber held up better and sadly I am experiencing these issues just after the 6 month warranty passed so I'm out of luck.Overall I will say the machine works for the most part as advertised, and my dog loves it to bits, but it just doesn't seem it's going to latest much longer with the gears wearing away. If you have a dog who adamantly plays fetch while this may hold him happy, if its used a lot don't expect it to latest more than a year.Edit: iFetch Customer help did reached out to me and allow me know that it is in fact a 1 year warranty and not 6 months. I got in touch with them and they offered to not only send a brand fresh unit to replace the faulty one, but also for the return shipping on the old one. I was very impressed that they did that small additional and I am happy to report no problems with the fresh unit so far, though time will tell. I will say the unit definitely did not work the second it was plugged in, but after a 14 hour charge time it worked perfectly so if your unit doesn't work right out of the box, give it time to charge and test again. Thanks iFetch!

    OK so first off, the item is exactly as pictured and described. That being said there are a few potential changes that would be ideal and let me to give 5 stars instead of 3....The drop shaft cone should be higher so when balls are dropped in, they don't bounce/fall out. It would also let more balls to be placed in at once for prep in e shooter needs to adjusted, or the mechanism reconfigured, so that only 1 ball is released at a time. Instead, at least on the little one, it shoots 2-3 at a stly, it would be super amazing if this thing worked through an application to provide remote control of the ifetch - that'd be a complete android game tom line, the dogs love it and hopefully they'll learn how to consistently drop the balls in on their own.

    I usually do not take the time to write reviews but in this case wanted to clear some mis-information in other reviews.1. The Launcher does not shut down after 60 seconds it just goes into sleep mode and the second you place a ball in it wakes up.2. Distance might not be 40 feet but it is beautiful darn good.We have Three German Shepherds (two who are just turning 1 year old) and one is extremely fetch and throw obsessed to the point we were all being driven crazy. We set the unit up and in less than 10 mins he was having the time of his life and we had peace. He and the other dogs had to learn the hard method that when the ball goes in and it makes its noise watch out or be beaned and we have found that tennis balls work the best.

    This device is intended for people who wish to teach their dogs to place a ball into the machine, have the machine throw the ball a controlled distance, and then when the dog has chased the ball, have the dog able to return and drop the ball again into the machine - it's intended to be a self-fetching is is not a self-fetching machine for dogs.I ran the machine for a few runs in my family room. The engineering is not good for the following reasons:Most significantly, this machine has been designed to work on battery, so when it is plugged in, it is really only in "charge" mode. That in itself is not a huge - but the machine has been designed to aggressively protect battery life - so after about 60 seconds, if the machine has detected no ball, it turns itself completely off.What this means in doggie life is that if your rover doesn't obtain that ball and drop it in the machine in 60 seconds, and you aren't there to push the little power button, the machine ceases to work, and doggie is just left facing a machine that isn't doing anything with a ball stuck e second major engineering flaw is that, while this machine uses tennis balls as its ammunition, it uses two spinning wheels as the throwing mechanism. If you, like me, have a dog who likes to chew a ball before getting to the next throw, the ball will eventually have some puncture holes. These holes change the resistance of the tennis ball to the throwing wheels so instead of creating pressure to throw the ball very far, the machine limply burps the ball out only a few feet.Ultimately, using solid balls would potentially solve the wheel/deflated ball issue - but the "instant off, no recovery" power issue is a intention was to set this thing up in the basement family room, and on a rainy day, give my puppy a treat by taking her down there, turning on the machine, pushing the button and letting her do her thing with the ball, return, chase loop (with training).You CANNOT use this device for dog "self-entertainment" -- the power will go off and the dog's android game is over. The auto-off timer is a GRAVE flaw and created this a return item for me.

    My husband bought this for our 1.5yr old border collie to use when we're gone. It took a couple of mins to teacher her to self use s: she gets tired from it and is actually able to self use it. Not sure about other breeds, but a border collie is simple to train with ns:*After fully charging it, the Low Battery indicator pops up after about 10 launches. So it has stayed plugged in. So battery is an issue....*If most definitely does not begin 40ft, maybe 15-20. It is on the correct setting, all the blue lights are on.*It gets super slobbery and then it doesn't seem to begin as far. I dry it out, but it just keeps happening.*There's some weird build up inside from all the slobber and hairs from the ball so I'm worried that the spinners that begin the ball might obtain super nasty and not work.*A few times the ball has dropped down and didn't begin and I had to place a second ball in to obtain the first to shoot out. My not good dog gets frustrated and hasn't learned (yet) to obtain another ball and test it.*It doesn't come with a sensor for pet safety. I have stuck my hand out in front to see if it would hurt, and it definitely would if it hit the right spot. With a sensor, it might give her a small more time to run after she puts the ball in.Overall it does create her tired, but I don't think it's going to last.

     Just to begin with, I hate the customer service because of the first ver of iFetch. They are not friendly and not interested in helping.Even though the first one was a large failure for my dog (everything was a limitation) and their customer service was horrible, I had to test out the "iFetch too" ver with fear but backed up by amazon perfect service, I could take that dog is a boston terrier 2 yr old and is very active. His play time involves ball for more than 5 hrs a day. So we wanted something like this and since he was already trained on the first generation of the ifetch, he immediately realized that it is a bigger ver and started playing on it from day 1 of the machines arrival. He has been playing with it indoors and outdoors for almost every day 2 hrs total for the past 5 months. I repeat: every day 2 hrs for the past 5 months and the machine has not shown any symptoms of breaking down like the one before. So there is no need to contact customer service as of now. I do charge it every day, clean it once every 2 weeks, especially when he plays outside with it. When playing outside, we tend to monitor him and change tennis balls frequently to avoid the slobber problem, since it slows down the tennis ball. Also, when the tennis ball is more wet, he tends to catch at the opening it self rather than chasing it. We use Penn tennis balls for this and they seem to work well.He can be considered as a beta tester for this model and he is pushing limits of the machine even when I am writing this review. He does play by himself now and takes rest in between and plays again and goes on doing that. Will definitely be interested to more of their products in future and definitely will recommend this version.******Update*****Still going powerful after having it for 9 months now. Just continuing to clean and change tennis balls when they obtain too wet. Still recommend and 5 stars******Update*******More than a year now and still going super strong. I just opened up the back of the iFetch to clean and found a lot of grass (my dog plays outdoor) and ball fur stuck in there (see pic). Cleaning was simple and it is amazing to go again.******Update*******Finally after 1.8 years of service the iFetch crashed on us. The rubber rolls inside eroded and item is broke now. Ordering one more now.

    My family of 6 COTON DE TULEAR dogs love the I fetch! One of my males ripped the blue rings off when he gets hyped up waiting for the ball to fly so I spayed them with bitter apple. Hes inpatient at times. I [email protected]#$%! could fit bigger balls like the XSMALL rubber CHUCKIT ULTRA BOUNCE BALLS!! Not tennis ball type. Unfortunately the chuckit won't fit. The balls are JUNK and i threw all of them away. I replaced them with KONG XSMALL Sqeeky balls that come 3 in a pack. Their 10 times durable then the Ifetch ball. cheaper! fly better! bounce better and latest longer.

    Bought this for my 12 pound toy fox terrier. He LOVES it! We can play for hours. I was hesitant at first because of the size of the balls, but now that I've seen him with them I'm not worried. It is sooooo much fun! *CAUTION- don't play for long periods of time on carpet. The pads of his feet became bloody and red from running and sliding across the floor to wall carpeting in my house. We now play outside in the grass and have had no issues.* Simple to travel with. I would this item again and recommend it to others.

    Absolutely love this and so does my dog. The only thing keeping me from giving a five star rating is the balls. They are kind of and don't latest long. My dog is only 4 pounds and he kills the balls in less than a week. The replacement balls are very expensive 5 for $25. I did search that the Kong 1.5 inch squeaker balls work amazing and are WAY less expensive. All and all I highly recommend!!

    I was so excited to test this, and so disappointed in the results. It might be fine for a little dog that doesn't require running far distances, but for larger dogs, it does not work. My biggest complaint is that the balls do not release at a consistent distance. The first ball will launch, but as soon as the tennis ball gets slightly wet, which it after the first grab, it barely launches at all. The ball become stuck, the machine needs to be turned off to obtain it out, turned back on and then is shoots out maybe five feet. To hold it going I would need to have a fleet of tennis balls, and that defeats the purpose of having the dog drop them in the machine. For the expensive tag, this item is a complete bust. I will be returning the iFetch Too.

If you, like me, have a dog who likes to chew a ball before getting to the next throw, the ball will eventually have some puncture holes. These holes change the resistance of the tennis ball to the throwing wheels so instead of creating pressure to throw the ball very far, the machine limply burps the ball out only a few feet.Ultimately, using solid balls would potentially solve the wheel/deflated ball issue - but the "instant off, no recovery" power issue is a intention was to set this thing up in the basement family room, and on a rainy day, give my puppy a treat by taking her down there, turning on the machine, pushing the button and letting her do her thing with the ball, return, chase loop (with training).You CANNOT use this device for dog "self-entertainment" -- the power will go off and the dog's android game is over. The auto-off timer is a GRAVE flaw and created this a return item for me.

    iFetch Too Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs – Launches Standard Tennis Balls, Large []  2019-12-11 18:10

    Bought this for my 12 pound toy fox terrier. He LOVES it! We can play for hours. I was hesitant at first because of the size of the balls, but now that I've seen him with them I'm not worried. It is sooooo much fun! *CAUTION- don't play for long periods of time on carpet. The pads of his feet became bloody and red from running and sliding across the floor to wall carpeting in my house. We now play outside in the grass and have had no issues.* Simple to travel with. I would this item again and recommend it to others.

    iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs – Launches Mini Tennis Balls, Small []  2019-12-12 18:9

    I was so excited to test this, and so disappointed in the results. It might be fine for a little dog that doesn't require running far distances, but for larger dogs, it does not work. My biggest complaint is that the balls do not release at a consistent distance. The first ball will launch, but as soon as the tennis ball gets slightly wet, which it after the first grab, it barely launches at all. The ball become stuck, the machine needs to be turned off to obtain it out, turned back on and then is shoots out maybe five feet. To hold it going I would need to have a fleet of tennis balls, and that defeats the purpose of having the dog drop them in the machine. For the expensive tag, this item is a complete bust. I will be returning the iFetch Too.

    My husband bought this for our 1.5yr old border collie to use when we're gone. It took a couple of mins to teacher her to self use s: she gets tired from it and is actually able to self use it. Not sure about other breeds, but a border collie is simple to train with ns:*After fully charging it, the Low Battery indicator pops up after about 10 launches. So it has stayed plugged in. So battery is an issue....*If most definitely does not begin 40ft, maybe 15-20. It is on the correct setting, all the blue lights are on.*It gets super slobbery and then it doesn't seem to begin as far. I dry it out, but it just keeps happening.*There's some weird build up inside from all the slobber and hairs from the ball so I'm worried that the spinners that begin the ball might obtain super nasty and not work.*A few times the ball has dropped down and didn't begin and I had to place a second ball in to obtain the first to shoot out. My not good dog gets frustrated and hasn't learned (yet) to obtain another ball and test it.*It doesn't come with a sensor for pet safety. I have stuck my hand out in front to see if it would hurt, and it definitely would if it hit the right spot. With a sensor, it might give her a small more time to run after she puts the ball in.Overall it does create her tired, but I don't think it's going to last.

    This device is intended for people who wish to teach their dogs to place a ball into the machine, have the machine throw the ball a controlled distance, and then when the dog has chased the ball, have the dog able to return and drop the ball again into the machine - it's intended to be a self-fetching is is not a self-fetching machine for dogs.I ran the machine for a few runs in my family room. The engineering is not good for the following reasons:Most significantly, this machine has been designed to work on battery, so when it is plugged in, it is really only in "charge" mode. That in itself is not a huge - but the machine has been designed to aggressively protect battery life - so after about 60 seconds, if the machine has detected no ball, it turns itself completely off.What this means in doggie life is that if your rover doesn't obtain that ball and drop it in the machine in 60 seconds, and you aren't there to push the little power button, the machine ceases to work, and doggie is just left facing a machine that isn't doing anything with a ball stuck e second major engineering flaw is that, while this machine uses tennis balls as its ammunition, it uses two spinning wheels as the throwing mechanism.
