GoGo Dog Pals for Prey-Driven Dogs

When we first saw the Go-Go Dog Pals remote control dog toy, we thought it might be just a simple remote control children’s car with a cute shell on top. Turns out, it’s a lot more than that… This is a super-charged, four-wheel-drive interactive dog toy that is bound to get any dog with a natural prey instinct on a fast-moving run through the yard.

The device is essentially a high-speed remote control vehicle with an armored shell in the design of a cat (we think it looks more like a skunk), a groundhog, or racoon. You can purchase new accessories to make the shell into any creature you prefer. Your dogs won’t care what color it is or how it looks - they only know that it runs away and it’s their job to catch it. As you know, our dogs are not exactly hunters. They enjoy their lizard hunts and stalking the occasional bird, but they don’t enjoy killing wildlife (thank goodness!) and I wasn’t sure how they would react to this toy. But I found that once you engage that natural instinct, there are very few dogs who won’t chase after this toy.

My dogs love to chase things, the prey drive is strong with them. That makes fetch an important game to us. A controlled game of fetch helps my pets exercise, gives them an outlet for excess energy, and improves our bond. It also reduces behavioral problems and decreases their potential to chase a cat or bird. 

The problem is that I can’t throw a ball... 

Quite seriously, I am awful at throwing. The ball goes wherever I don’t want it to - through windows, over walls, into the street and occasionally, I even accidentally trip up my dogs when I toss it. 

That’s why iFetch is a great option for me. This automated ball launcher lets me play fetch with my dogs without injury (to me or them).
