The goDog Retrieval goFetch allows you to play fetch without picking up the slobbery ball! This launcher is equipped with a unique duro-flex hinged jaw that picks up almost anything – so you can throw plush toys, any sized ball, goDog screwBallz and more without touching them. The unique hinged jaw also allows you to pick up the ball without having to trap it with your foot first unlike other launchers. The goFetch comes ready to play with a Tough Core Technology tennis ball. Patent pending Tough Core Technology adds a durable foam insert and bonded seams to create a more durable, safer tennis ball for longer lasting fun. This toy is intended for interactive play and is not meant for use as a chew toy.
