For the same reason you love a flashy new toy (hey Apple watch), your dog loves one, too! No matter who (or what) you are, having a new thing to play with just makes life more exciting. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion to treat your pooch to a present. Show her you love her with one of these entertaining dog toys that range from cheap and cheerful to splurge – she won’t even remember how mad she was when you left her for a week over the holidays.
This is like a mini batting cage you can use indoor or outdoors.

If you want to perfect your fetch this year, or, just take it to the next level, this is the game to do it with.
