Dog treat launchers are some of the newest gadgets to make life easier for you and your pet. These awesome devices can shoot a doggie treat 10 feet or more just by pressing a button or squeezing a trigger. These specialized fetch toys allow you to turn treat time into game time. It’s a lot of fun watching your pooch can learn to catch the treats in his or her mouth.
What’s the best dog treat launcher on the market? That depends on your perspective. Right now, there are a handful of launchers available, and all are relatively new, so they don’t have extensive track records. For that reason, you’ll have to read through the reviews and decide which criteria (color, price, consistency) are most important to you.
How to Choose a Dog Treat Launcher
Most of the pet snack launchers that are currently available have mixed reviews. Often, users say they can’t get the devices to launch the treats as they should. The problem, typically, is the size of the treat. Most launchers are designed for a very specific size of treat, and if you try to use treats that do not match that size, it won’t work.
So the bottom line when purchasing and using a pet treat launcher is to be patient and try a few different sized treats until you come up with one that works well with the device you purchased.
