Back when every dog owner on earth had to throw the ball during a game of fetch by hand, iFetch came out and revolutionized the favorite activity of dogs and their owners. The history of the iFetch dog ball launcher started not that long ago, in 2013. Since then, the toy has made thousands of dogs happier than ever. Check out our iFetch ball launcher review.
The iFetch launcher rocks a very modern design with lots of curves and a stylish, understated color theme. There are two openings: a smaller one for launching the ball and a bigger one for throwing the ball back into the device with little effort.
Besides the launcher itself, in your package for the iFetch dog toy, you will also get an AC adapter and three standard tennis balls. If your dog eventually destroys the balls, you can get replacement balls from iFetch or use generic tennis balls of a similar size.

- The rechargeable battery eliminates the need to constantly buy and replace standard batteries.
- There are three distance settings for throwing: 10, 25 and 40 feet. There is also a random setting to make the whole process less predictable for your dog.
- The device can be used both for indoor and outdoor play — simply set the distance to 10 feet.
There are numerous reviews of the device on the internet, and most of them are positive. According to the iFetch too reviews, this device is perfect for both bonding time between the dog and the owner and individual play. Most dogs get the hang of the launcher pretty fast and enjoy operating the device on their own.
Thanks to the 10-feet distance setting, you can successfully use the iFetch launcher at home when you are leaving your dog on her own. For indoor play, you can plug in the AC adapter to give the batteries some rest.
However, it should be noted that the real throwing distance may be different for indoor and outdoor use. When the ball is launched outdoors, it usually flies to the distance specified in the settings. During indoor play, you can expect the ball to roll to a longer distance thanks to the smooth surface of the floor.
As the original dog ball launcher, the iFetch device remains one of the best options for automatic launching of dog balls. It is neatly designed, has only the most essential features and settings, and is rather durable for a high-tech dog toy.
