iFetch – Alone Time Fun for Fido


I sure know a lot of folks who consider themselves “dog people” and there truly is something to be said about the unconditional love of a pet… coming home at the end of a long day and being greeted enthusiastically by your furry friend. But what’s your buddy doing all day while you’re gone? Have you set him up to be entertained while you’re away?

Check out iFetch, what started as a Kickstarter project sometime last year, has become one of the coolest pet entertainment devices around. iFetch is an exercise and entertainment toy that is actually controlled by your dog. Your pet interacts with iFetch using a special tennis ball. When your pup drops that ball into the unit’s funnel, the device will turn itself on, and within seconds,  throw the ball out for your dog to chase.The device will turn itself off if the ball is not returned to the funnel.

iFetch shoots miniature tennis balls, and can be set to launch the ball 3 different distances (between 10 and 30 feet) The unit can be plugged into an outlet, or  run on batteries, so it can be placed where Fido would use it the most. The Kickstarter campaign has successfully completed and the iFetch is now available for purchase from for under 100 bucks. Go get it!
