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!

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
