Techie Tuesday: Go Dog Go - automatic fetch machine
"Now bring the ball back..."
Thinking of buying a Christmas present for the pooch? Is your dog a big bundle of energy and you're well, not? If you want to give your four-legged friends the exercise and playtime they deserve, then this $150 ball thowing machine might be just the ticket.
They claim to have training tips for getting the dog to drop the ball back in the bucket, although I know my dog, Roxi Blu, would never do that. She'd rather collect all the balls and lay, or roll around, on them.
In a pinch, I think this could double as an automated pitcher for stick ball pratice.
Take a look at the Product Description:
