I have a dirt yard and my dogs balls get muddy. Will the launcher be able to get dirt in it?
Answer by ChewyJul 23, 2017
The PetSafe Automatic Ball Launcher Dog Toy can get dirt inside of it, however, it's easy to clean.

Will this machine launch a racquet ball?
Answer by ChewyJul 27, 2018
This launcher is compatible with any ball around the same size of a standard tennis ball. Diameters of 6.5-6.8.

Does this come with the cd on how to use this, giving this as a gift?
Answer by ChewySep 26, 2018
A CD is not included with this ball launcher. This system includes (2) standard-sized tennis balls, a power cord, training instructions and a user manual.

Is there a way to shut off the 15minutes on & 15 minutes off setting? Or to extend the play time longer than 15 min?
Answer by ChewyApr 12, 2018
At this time, this launcher toy does not exceed 15 minutes of play time. The Ball Launcher will got to sleep after 15 minutes of play. It will then rest for 15 minutes and cycle through another 15 minutes. This continues until the power button is turned off.

Waste of Money

Built like junk. Only launched balls about 10 feet on maximum setting. That's when it actually worked. Only lasted about 2 weeks. Another fine piece of JUNK from China

Not Sturdy Enough!!

This PetSafe Automatic Ball launcher is just an expensive toy. It barely launches the ball across an indoor room. Not built for a real Outdoor Dog!!!

not worth it

1. Have a 88 lb lab, not afraid of anything. Launcher gives an abrupt noise and it scares a dog not afraid of a commercial lawn mower, weed eater or leaf blower. Not scared of noises until this thing. Won't get near it. 2. Only throws the ball about 10 ft high and 20ft away on highest setting. Disappointed and returning it after 10 mins of use. (Comes with AC power adapter and was plugged in) I don't recommend it.

Received a very used unit

Unit came, box had been opened and resealed with a sticker. Still could see the cut in the box where the last person used too long of a knife to open the outer box. Had scratches all over it and was missing balls. As for the product itself. It works, but it's really loud. Both the beeps before it launches and the launch itself. Gonna take a while for the dog to get used to it, if ever.

Didn't even last a year.

Title says it all this product was purchased in September and it's currently the beginning of March it didn't even last a year. In theory this machine is nice. The hardest part will be training your dog to use it properly. Only took me about 2 weeks to reach my Shepard how to use the ball launcher. The launcher will throw the ball pretty far and high but di not last. I would say my dog used this every day for about 45 minutes. So if your dog is energetic and wants to play everyday this product is not for them. I will add there is a one year warranty. I do not know however if they are going to honor it I will be contacting the company and give an update.

Has to be plugged it. I put batteries in it and it wouldn’t work unless plugged in. The sensor did work very well some times it wouldn’t throw even when my dog was behind it

The idea is good, the product is cheap.

I like the idea of having something that will throw my dog a ball every time she wants. I just think that this product is very poor in terms of materials used and programming. It is definitely a product that should cost at the most $50.

Feed tray came loose after a few throws.

Feed tray came loose after a few throws. Complete disassembly to snap it back in. Feed tray Constantly pops loose and blocks throwing arm. Dog absolutely loved it for about 10 minutes.

Only 50 percent great.

Plugged into an electrical outlet the machine works well. In fact, my lab is addicted to it. When she goes outside, she stands in front of the machine waiting for a ball to come flying out. I would like to take it to the dog park but found it does not work on fresh batteries. Too bad.
