Sometimes your dogs need a day full of rigorous playtime to stay active and sporty. To fulfil their needs, one may feel tired by constantly playing with them. In this case, the Go dog Go fetch machine works wonders for them. It can enhance their moods, and keep them healthy. Before buying, make sure to know about all the details of this product.
While the iFetch is the most popular automatic ball thrower on the market today, the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine is its closest competitor. The difference with the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine is that it is designed more for outside use and accepts larger-sized balls, not just smaller balls. The Go Dog Go Fetch Machine uses six batteries for 25 hours and can also use an AC Adaptor in the mains. Check out the company’s FAQ page for full details and specs of this great product.

The biggest positive of the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine is that, unlike the iFetch, it supports both small and standard size tennis balls. Other automatic throwers only support the smaller balls, so this is a big plus for the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine. You can use any ball between 1.7 and 2.6 inches, including Prima Tennis Balls.
In December 2015, iFetch released the iFetch Too that fits standard tennis balls.
A big advantage of the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine is the colour contrast. The bright green bucket on top of the black base makes this product stand out incredibly. The iFetch is only in white, with a small blue trim, so the GoDogGo leads the way on the ‘Eye Catching’ product.
Unlike the iFetch, the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine is recommended ONLY for outdoor use. The machine can shoot balls as high as 12 feet in the air which could be extremely dangerous in your standard house. It is best to be used outdoors.
The GoDogGo struggles to keep up with supply and demand and is regularly/quickly out of stock.
It can be very difficult to purchase from Amazon as it is rarely available.
The price is also a lot more than the iFetch.
Although the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine does have some nice features and is great for outdoor use with your larger dogs, the iFetch is by far the more durable product, in our opinion. However, if Go Dog Go Inc could keep up with demands, this would be a great purchase for regular outdoor use.
Reviews for the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine
The product, like the iFetch, can help train your dog to fetch and drop balls into the bucket. The bucket would be very easy to find for your dog with its bright green colour. The Go Dog Go Fetch Machine has a large motor that can be very off-putting for some owners, but using outside only might not be a problem.
YouTube again has many videos relating to this product, from unboxing to actual training. Still, this video below gives an idea of the height and distance the Go Dog Go Ball Launcher throws.
The Go Dog Go has many positives, including its appearance. In comparison to the iFetch, I don’t believe that the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine is worth the extra cost. If you have good weather regularly and a lot of space, then the Go Dog Go Fetch Machine is ideal. As we all know, the weather in the UK is never the best, so we believe the iFetch would be perfect for any household.
