I have two border collies so which ifetch would be better
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2018
The iFetch Too Automatic Ball Launcher Dog Toy is the correct size toy for your dogs.

Does this run on batteries?
Answer by ChewyAug 06, 2017
The Launcher Dog Toy runs on AC Adapter (included) or 6 C-cell batteries (batteries not included).

How is the unit cleaned if need be? Some one mentioned it was hard to clean after many slobbery balls had gone through it. Also what types of ball can be used. I have a 6-7 lb schnauzer!
Answer by ChewyJul 02, 2018
With the unit powered off feed a damp cloth down into the tube and out the front launch area. Pulling the cloth back and forth (similar to flossing your teeth) will take care of one level of dirt. As a bonus (and to get a better clean on the wheels) firmly hold the cloth from the ball hopper end and then carefully turn on the unit and press in the ball trigger to cause the wheels to spin about the cloth. Worst case, the cloth might tear or it might get jerked out of your hand and launched, but it shouldn’t damage the unit. The iFetch is designed for indoor/outdoor use with miniature tennis balls that are 40 millimeters or 1.5 inches in diameter.

Does it automatically turn on when a ball is pleased in it, then auto off with no use?
Answer by ChewyNov 17, 2017
To use, press the button on the rear of your iFetch to turn the unit on and place the ball inside. You can use your iFetch while plugged in or on battery.

Not for little doggies

I gave 2 stars for the concept. Please think about this before purchasing. The level of noise it makes to pitch the ball through the machine is very loud it is frightening, my doggie was so afraid of it. The balls are very cheap, we used a handful of times trying to get our little one not afraid of it and they were starting to fall apart. Thank goodness Chewy came to our rescue and allowed us to return!

Doggie Loves :)

Wow! My Corgi absolutely loves this ball machine. The time was only about 30 minutes before she was placing the ball inside the machine herself. We were shocked how easy it was for her to learn. We have to unplug the ball machine and put away so she will take a break. Thank you for the great product! I need to take a few photos. For now I only have a video that I sent to family. Sorry, I see you can only add photos.

iFetch is good, balls are hot garbage

The machine works really well. Dog loves it, though it took several weeks for him to figure out how to use it. iFetch works just as advertised and keeps dog entertained. The balls are terrible and expensive to replace. The balls break in half with minimal chewing and cease to work in the machine upon loosing their shape. iFetch would get 5 stars if the balls could survive a few bites from a 17 lb. Cockapoo and if they were less expensive to replace. I recommend only if you are okay with constantly paying to order new balls. Good machine. Balls suck.

Nope. Not impressed

This is definitely not what I expected. Especially for the money spent. Ball doesn't go very far and for the moment that might be ok as my dogs are pups. This item just looks and operates very cheaply. I would strongly advise doing more and better research on this type of item . I thought I had but, I guess not. Would I recommend this item, even for small dogs NO

Great Idea - Terrible Execution

Had to replace this twice, 1st one worked for about an hour and then the balls would get stuck consistently. 2nd one stopped turning on after 3 uses. Do not recommend at all. Its very fun when it works but it will break sadly.

Balls are hard and very small, feels dangerous when they launch

Constantly malfunctions

Within 5 minutes, the machine started to constantly malfunction, where the ball would drop straight down.

It was a let down

Not what I thought it would be like. Doesn't throw the ball very far, even when set on 30 ft. Ball gets stuck sometimes and that makes loki really annoyed with it..

launcher is great with a modification, balls not so much

It took a few days for my dog to figure out how to play with the launcher herself and she loves it! BUT...the 3 balls provided basically lasted a day each (they break in half internally underneath the felt cover and can no longer be launched once broken). Also, I think my dog is a bit clumsy and she would often drop the ball right on the lip of the opening and the ball wouldn't go in. We solved this problem by essentially creating a funnel attachment by cutting the bottom off a plastic salad bowl and attaching it to the opening and she's had no problems with that issue since. We actually went through a fair number of balls to figure out one she wouldn't destroy including several kong balls (they lasted a few days longer than the ifetch ones but got destroyed too) and finally landed on tuff balls - so far, they have lasted a week!

Works great!

This works great and the first setting is plenty for our small dog, though the second setting covers the longest length of our apt, which is also nice. She still hasn't figured out how to load her own ball into it, but I am hopeful it's just a matter of time. My biggest issue with this is my dog really rather sneak off with the balls and rip the felt off than play fetch, and I'm having a hard time finding the right size rubber ball to fit in this tiny machine. I wish it came with other balls or had other ball options for purchase.
