Dogs love playing fetch. But sometimes, it can get a bit boring to throw a ball over and over. The good news is that a dog ball launcher can help you enhance the game of fetch for your pup and save your arm. Whether you’re looking for something to help you throw further or a device that can automatically throw for you, there is something for everyone.
Herding dogs such as Aussies, Border Collies, and Corgis have a major behavioral trait in common that’s not surprising given their breed class name — the strong inherent drive to herd. If you don’t have a livestock farm, the challenge of having a herding breed as a furry family member is satisfying this instinctual nature to keep them happy. Herding breeds and many herding mixes have certain playtime needs to keep them stimulated and ultimately well-behaved family pets. Herding balls can help satisfy some of their requirements, but you’ll also want to keep a variety of indoor toys on hand for these intelligent dogs. We share your best toy options and herding balls (Jolly Pets and Race&Herd) to keep your high-energy pup physically and mentally engaged.

We’ll share everything we uncovered about this interactive dog toy, including our personal experiences.
