Soft bite floppy disc dog frisbee in action!

The Soft Bite Floppy Disc dog frisbee is by far one of the most fun toys we got for our dog. It comes in different sizes so you can get the right size for your dog. Here’s why we love it:

  • It’s light, flexible and perfect for traveling.
  • It’s durable and ideal for playing fetch.
  • It floats! Yep – perfect for the pool. Dries out quickly.
  • We’ve used it as a quick water bowl. If you’re on a walk outside and need to give your dog a quick drink of water it comes in handy.
  • Our dog loves it!

Lucky loves her frisbee!

Last summer, our dogsized fan, Lucky, was looking for some tough dog toys and we recommended the Soft Bite Floppy. It ended up being her favorite toy of the bunch! She’s tough on dog toys and the Soft Bite Floppy passed the test. Here’s an updated photo of Lucky with her favorite new toy, the Soft Bite Floppy dog frisbee!

The Ultimate Toy for Dogs that Love to Play Fetch

Does your dog love to play fetch? Do you sometimes wish he would just play fetch by himself? Well someone has come up with a solution for that! This brilliant invention called the iFetch allows your dog to play fetch with himself.

Your dog drops the ball into the large blue funnel on one side and the ball shoots out on the other.  It’s an on-demand ball launcher! Check out this quick video to see how it works:

Of course you’ll probably need to train your dog to use the iFetch (unless your dog is an Einstein-dog). They recommend you train your dog with the iFetch at most three times a day and only for ten minutes at a time. It’s recommended that your dog is supervised while they’re playing with the toy. If your dog is a heavy slobberer the iFetch may require wiping off balls from time to time.

Just Drop the Ball In!

How is the iFetch powered? All you need to do is plug it in (or insert 6 c-cell batteries), press the button on the back, drop in the special ball, and it’s playtime. Unfortunately it’s not created to use with full sized tennis balls. iFetch is designed to work with iFetch balls which are 1 ½” diameter.

iFetch was created by the Hamill Family from Austin, Texas. Their toy poodle, Prancer, kept begging them to play fetch. As we all know, sometimes you just don’t have time to play fetch. The patriarch, grandfather Denny, figured they could develop something that could throw the ball for Prancer and would be a fun family project.

After several months and hundreds of hours of prototyping, testing, and refining, they launched a Kickstarter campaign. Within 30 days, they had more than 1,000 backers and they received $88,000 in funding – more than four times the original goal. Clearly there were a lot of other dog families that could really use an on-demand ball launcher too!

The iFetch is now available for any dog family (click to purchase). Your dog will have endless fun with their new toy!

GoDogGo – Automatic Ball Fetch Machine

Let’s Play Fetch!

A while back we wrote about the iFetch automatic ball launcher and fetch machine. Since then, we’ve discovered the GoDogGo. This is also an automatic ball launcher and fetch machine, but the advantage is that the GoDogGo allows you to use balls of all sizes – small, medium and large. It will also launch farther than the iFetch, which goes up to 30 feet.

GoDogGo is recommended for outdoor use due to the speed, height and distance of the ball launch. Of course, it really depends on how large your house is – are you in a studio or a 15,000 sq ft home? Apparently a pressurized or hi-bounce ball will have a minimum launch height of approximately 12 feet, but the machine can be adjusted to launch between 12 and 42+ feet depending on the ball type and size.

godoggoThe GoDogGo company suggests that if you plan to use it indoors, it’s preferable to use a heavy and/or hollow ball that is not pressurized as this will help to reduce the launch. Ball examples to reduce height/distance: Buddy Glow Ball–14′ distance & 6′ height; ProPenn Tip 2 trainer ball-18′ distance & 8′ height; Chuck it standard size Tennis Ball–11′ distance & 4′ height; Planet Dog RecycleBall–9′ distance & 6′ height.

godoggoThe GoDogGo Fetch Machine allows for 3 types of use; continuous automatic launching of balls every 7 or 15 seconds when the bucket is fully loaded, use with a single ball for independent play when the dog returns ball to the bucket; or the dog owner controls the experience by using a remote control. In manual mode using the remote control, a ball will launch at a minimum of 7 seconds or a longer which is determined by pushing the remote launch button.

The GoDogGo can be powered by either AC Adapter/110V or Battery Power/D Batteries. If using battery power, it will run for approximately 25 hours on 6 D batteries.

godoggoClearly, this is an awesome toy if your dog is crazy about fetch (especially when your arm is tired). Of course, you’ll have to train your dog with it as with any new toy and there are safety considerations, for example, your dog (and anyone else) should always stand a minimum of 2 feet from the front of the unit when the ball machine is turned on. You need to make sure your dog also retrieves to the right place, i.e. the bucket and not the launch pocket. However, with the right training, we think this would be a great gift for your dog and it could provide endless hours of play!
