The iFetch is a new human-less pet toy, that allows your pup to play fetch with itself. As shown in the video, the futuristic toy shoots out small tennis-like balls for your dog to fetch. Your dog then can retrieve the ball and puts it back into the toy, which then shoots it out again. This is a great toy to keep your dog busy while you’re gone during the day, working, or if you’re just tired of playing fetch.
So we set up our iFetch in our living room for Penny to play with. Penny sat in front of the ball-shooter while Bridgette (the cat) watched from under our coffee table. At first Penny seemed a little confused as to what was going on, she kept giving me this ‘Mom, I have no idea what you want from me?’, face. I decided to pick one of the balls up and toss it for her, which she ended up retrieving and bringing back to me. I then tried to get her to put the ball into the ball dropper area of the fetch. However after many attempts of this, we were embarrassingly unsuccessful. I decided to give it one more try to see if Penny would cooperate. Penny was again confused, and not interested in this cool toy. However my cat Bridgette, loved the toy. After watching how it worked from a distance, Bridgette actually started chasing after the balls. I put the balls back into the toy for her, and watched again as my cat had a field day with the ifetch.
If you have a larger dog and want to start using the ifetch with your medium to larger sized dog, we recommended that you spend more time teaching them how to use the toy. Every size of dog will have to be trained to work with the toy, but those larger guys may need a little more help. If you dog is not a huge ‘fetch’ dog, you may need to supervise them while they play with the ifetch. Otherwise, you’re going to have a ton of the ifetch balls scattered around your floor. Enjoy!
