    A ball throwing machine for dogs?

    I've recently come across a homemade ball throwing machine for dogs (see link).

    I thought the idea was rather interesting but am not sure it would work in the long run. The dog would most likely lose interest quickly. What would make such machine interesting for a dog? Does anybody have any input or experience regarding such a machine?

    No input or experience, but I've had my eye on this toy for years

    It's ran by a remote control, so you can hit the button whenever your dog is doing what you want them to do. It would be great for agility! But it's so expensive, I might have to wait it out...

    Some dogs would not get bored. Zero will chase tennis balls until he's exhausted. Then he just collapses and lays there until he can get some energy to chase the tennis ball again.
