It’s perfect for when you’re away or busy doing other things—like getting his dinner ready—while ensuring he gets all the mental and physical exercise that he needs. All you have to do is plug it in, choose your launching distance and then drop in a tennis ball. Soon your dog will learn how to drop it himself, which stimulates his mind and allows for totally independent play.

  • Comes with three standard-sized tennis balls, with a non-abrasive design that is gentler on teeth.
  • Launches the ball 10, 25 or 40 feet, which can easily be changed with the push of a button.
  • Operates almost silently with a streamlined plastic design with rubber feet keep it in place.
  • Excellent way to encourage both mental and physical exercise, and allows for independent play.
What's Included

(3) Pack of iFetch Standard Tennis Balls, AC Charger for the Internal Rechargeable Battery.

Every dog plays differently and, since not all toys are created equal, it’s always best to keep a close watch on your pup in case things get ruff. Supervised play will help toys last longer and most importantly keep your pal safe. No dog toy is truly indestructible, so always remove the toy from playtime if pieces begin to break off.

Instructions

To get started with the iFetch Too, you will need to charge the rechargeable internal battery before getting started. Plug the iFetch Too into the wall using the charger that comes with it. The light on the charger will turn green when it is charged and ready to go (can take anywhere from 2-8 hours to fully charge). The iFetch Too is portable once it is charged, can be unplugged and moved wherever you like. Press the power button on the back, select a distance setting (adjusting the safety switch so the red is visible in order to launch further than 10 feet) and select 10, 25 or 40 feet, or a random setting, which will randomly select a launch distance each time the ball is dropped in. Enjoy playtime and let the fetching begin!

Training Tips

  • When teaching your dog how to play fetch, make sure you train near the iFetch Too so that your dog can connect the dots between fetch and the iFetch Too.
  • Train with the iFetch Too at most three times a day and only for ten minutes at a time. That way, fetch stays fun and doesn’t become fetch bootcamp.
  • If you feel like your dog is getting frustrated and is unable to get the ball into the iFetch Too , then just work on reinforcing any behavior toward the iFetch Too and make sure your dog gets rewarded.
  • If your dog attempts to get the reward via other behaviors (e.g. rolling over, jumping up, shaking paws, etc.), it’s important that you NOT reward these behaviors.
  • If your dog is cautious around the iFetch Too at first, that’s okay. The iFetch Too is new and different and he’s probably not sure what it is. You can start by rewarding him for just going near the iFetch Too. This way he learns that the iFetch Too is just another part of the house. With a little time, you can use treats to bring him closer to the iFetch Too, teaching him to drop the ball as close to the iFetch Too as possible. After a few training sessions (results may vary) your dog will learn to trust the iFetch Too and then it will be playtime.
FAQ

How do you clean the iFetch Too?

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.

Is this product safe for my dog?

When introducing iFetch Too to your dog, we recommend that you teach him or her to stay behind the product (or to the side of it) as the product prepares to launch. At its highest launch setting (40 feet), the product can toss the ball at speeds which could injure your dog, especially if they are standing directly in front of the product. While most dogs learn very quickly where to stand to avoid getting hit by the ball, adult human supervision is recommended until your dog is fully trained.

What size balls does the iFetch Too use?

The iFetch Too is designed for indoor/outdoor use with standard size tennis balls that are 2.5 inches in diameter.

How far does the iFetch launch the ball?

The iFetch Too has three launch distance settings, 10 feet, 25 feet, or 40 feet, and a fourth option for a random launch distance setting. To set the launch distance, all you have to do is press the button the back to cycle through the settings (switching the safety switch to red if you want to launch further than 10 feet). The light will turn off after 30 seconds, but the iFetch Too will remain on (in standby mode) until you drop another ball in the funnel.

What size dog can use the iFetch Too?

The iFetch Too is specifically designed for medium to large breed dogs.

My dog slobbers a lot. Is that a problem?

Some dogs slobber more than others. If your dog is a heavy slobberer, you may need to wipe off the balls from time to time.

  • Works great with dogs that love fetch

    By on

    I bought the small one last year and my little chihuahua, dachshund, terrier loves it! She figured it out in 2-3 minutes. She is not an ordinary little dog. She has an extremely big prey drive and is obsessive compulsive with any kind of fetch. I would get extra balls from the pet store before it arrives. The balls are not sturdy at all!

  • Great little machine, puppies still trying to figure it out

    By on

    My puppies are still young, so they do not play fetch that well 100% of the time. So they have not figured out how to drop the ball in it and play by themselves. I tried to train them with it but they get to excited and run away to wait for the ball. Eventually they will get it. I think the noise sort of scares them and intimidates them from trying to drop the ball themselves.

  • So far it works OK.

    I took a chance after reading the reviews because I really wanted this to work. It does require the ability to teach your dog to put the ball in. I already did this with a similar device that rewarded with food. He just needs to learn to be gentle as the curve of the machine makes the ball roll out when he whips it in. It also turns off way to quickly. The inconsistency of when it works makes it difficult to train the dog. They need consistency to learn what works and when it only shoots every three times they can’t learn well. It should have an automatic turn on when the first ball is put in. It’s not something I can leave with them unattended which was my plan if I was busy. I have to keep I took a chance after reading the reviews because I really wanted this to work.

I have to keep problem solving why it’s not working. It hasn’t gotten jammed unless the ground was wet and then the ball got heavy. However, the quality of the balls that came with it are terrible!! Two of the three were broken in half the very first day we used it and I have border collies not pit bulls. I’m hoping it gets better use but for now I have to sit on top of it and work harder to get it to go then if I just threw it. … more

  • I really want this to work.

    We have too much saliva and if the cant get the trnnis balls to work they tear the covers off them. Can we make it to work with chuck it balls or rubber anyway?

  • Great Idea But...

    By on

    I have two dogs. One is afraid of the sound and hides whenever we turn it on. Our other dog loves chasing the balls. He stands by the opening waiting for the balls to launch. We tried really hard over about 6 weeks to drop the ball in the launcher and he just won’t do it. Also once the balls start to get slimy the launcher stops working. I think it will work for some dogs but even my ball obsessed dog is not interested. So an expensive experiment. Hoping we can still return it.

  • iFetch ball launcher

    By on

    Disappointed as my dog won't put the ball in the launcher by herself. I have worked with her to do it, but she loves her football way too much and isn't impressed with the tennis ball and launcher.

  • Dogs love it.

    By on

    I'm still trying to get the pups to drop the ball in by themselves, but they love it. We are currently using it inside on a low setting. I use regular tennis balls because the covers on the blue ones that come with this item are too easy for my dogs to rip off.

  • I fetch 2 .

    My dog and I both like the ifetch too. The only problem is it didn't come with instructions on how to teach your dog to drop the ball into the launcher.

  • Works great

    By on

    The ball launcher works perfectly every time with the blue tennis balls that come with it. My dog will only play with ChuckIt 2 inch balls however. I got the large ball launcher hoping that the 2 inch balls would also work in it, but they are too small to be grabbed by the launcher wheels and launched. I am still teaching my dog how to put the ball into the launcher and he is close to learning it. But I have to manually press the launcher trigger, sometimes repeatedly to get the 2 inch ball to eject. If anyone knows how to modify my 2 inch plastic ball so it will work in the launcher by itself, I would love to hear from you.
