iFetch Online Reviews
This product can quickly train your dog to fetch and load the balls into the automatic ball thrower meaning you don’t have too. This training does not take long neither, simply show the dog whats required and before you know it, you can sit back and relax while your dog fetches and plays.
One of the best features of the iFetch is the length the balls fire. With 3 unique settings, the balls can fire up to 30feet on the iFetch and 45 feet on the iFetch Too. Perfect for saving on your arm muscles.
The size of the balls is often scrutinised but if you use the iFetch for small dogs as intended, this is not an issue.
There are thousands of results on YouTube for the iFetch. Check out the video below of how quick a dog can be trained to use the iFetch and how easy it is to setup
iFetch Automatic Ball Thrower: Summary
Our Miniature Dachshund, Ralph, loves his tennis ball and loves sprinting round the garden. The annoying part is having to continue to throw it for him to go fetch. If you’re like me and work long hours, long weeks and just want to chill when you get home, this product is perfect. It will keep the dog entertained for hours and allow you the peace you deserve.
