The if etch is an electronic ball launcher designed to keep your dog entertained for hours on end. Simply pop a ball into the shoot at the top, and it'll launch out of the ball shoot at a distance of either 3, 6 or 9 meters. Dogs can be trained to place the ball into the shoot all by themselves, so you can sit back, relax and let your dog have as much fetch fun as their little doggy heart desires.

If you really want this thing to work, suggest you get a couple of 5 gallon buckets of tennis balls, so that you can have enough dry balls to use. I'm not sure if they would dry out either. I used tennis balls, if you use hard balls, you have to wipe them off. Our puppy did get hit in the eye once, she kind of let out a puppy cry, and was blinking the eye, but shook it off. I would be worried about using a hard ball, you risk injuring your dog.
I had a "Nerf Dog" ball launch gun, but the rubber band broke after about a month. A mechanism like this is less prone to degrade with a "wet" ball. I paid $30 for it at Canadian Tire. I think the "spinning wheel" design of this unit is a fatal design flaw, I would like to find something that would work, our lab loves to play ball, it just gets boring after a while.
I fully intended to put it up for a bit as our dog is too small and young yet but I'm looking forward to fun in the garden this summer.
But he loves it. He didn't master yet the play-all-alone thing and he loves to put the slobbery ball in my hand first. But he is all happy and tail wagging when it's time to play. Maybe I wasn't throwing far enough for his taste.
I won't recommend - though - to use the small balls with a big dog without supervising the dog. Mine doesn't have the custom to swallow things...but still.
The balls seem different from the ones you find in the tennis department. At least he(the dog) chews them more. And they bounce a little more. Maybe it's about quality.
The power of throwing....my living room(around 30 square meters) is enough to use it on the first 2 levels without involving walls and angry neighbors.
Good product. Wish I bought the big version.
