The iFetch Too is an upgraded version of the of iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher with more advanced and dog friendly features just for your furry friend. The iFetch Too is an automatic ball launcher that is tons of interactive fun for large and medium dogs, plus their owners too.
Indoors, or outdoors? It doesn’t matter. This device is perfect for either indoor or outdoor use, with a launch capability of up to 10, 25, or even 40 feet. You can switch between the three distances or select the variable setting on the device for more variety for your pup. The iFetch Too balls have a diameter of 2.5 inches. While these feel like tennis balls, these are “Tuff” balls specially designed for dogs, and are non-abrasive on their teeth. However, if you want to load standard tennis balls into iFetch Too, that’s also fine! Standard tennis balls work great. The iFetch Too, additionally, comes with a built-in, rechargeable battery for portability. So you can use this device to have your dog to play fetch pretty much anywhere that you want.
The iFetch Too is similar to the iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher. That’s not surprising, since both these products are created by the same company! The biggest difference between these two products is in the size of the balls – the iFetch Too uses standard tennis balls sized balls, which are 2.5 inches in diameter. The original iFetch uses smaller balls, which are 1.5 inches in diameter. If your dogs (or their mouths!) are large, the smaller balls may be too small for them, and may be a potential choking or swallowing hazard.
In addition, the iFetch Too can launch the ball to greater distances – the options available are 10, 25, or 40 feet, while the iFetch has the options of launching the ball to 10, 20 or 30 feet. So the iFetch cannot throw the ball as far as the iFetch Too can.
In short, if you have a larger dog, the iFetch Too is the right choice for you.
Amazon reviewers rated the iFetch Too with an average of 3.3 stars. Positive reviewers liked the devices quick-launch capability, battery life, and level of engagement for dogs–most wrote that their dogs were very “excited” when using the device. Negative reviewers, however, carped that the device doesn’t launch the ball very far—some even said that the device stops working after a while and won’t shoot the ball a second or third time. One reviewer wrote that if you have a dog who likes to chew a on ball before getting to the next throw, the ball will eventually have some punctured holes over time. These holes change the resistance of the tennis ball, so instead of creating pressure to throw the ball very far, the reviewer said the iFetch Too limply burps the ball out only a few feet. Another reviewer recommended this device for small dogs than don’t run long distances, rather than large dogs, because the ball doesn’t shoot very far.
The Bottom Line
This device is more suited for large dogs, with its regular-sized balls and longer launch range. There are few ball launching devices that are more impressive than this one. If you want to keep your fetch-loving dog happy, entertained and well-exercised, this is a great choice for you.
