Having a Ball with PetSafe Sweepstakes

Posted on Sep 19 2016 - 8:30pm by Susan Bewley

Want to make indoor & outdoor play fun for dogs? Enter to win a PetSafe Automatic Ball Launcher ($199.99 value) here!

Looking for a fun, interactive toy to keep dogs active both indoors and outdoors? If so, we think you will love the PetSafe Automatic Ball Launcher. This water-resistant launcher has 9 distance settings (8 – 30 feet) and 5 angles (up to 45 degree angles) to allow you to customize for playtime with one or more dogs. As well, it works with standard sized tennis balls, so they are easy to replace (because dogs never damage their toys). Our favorite part, however, is that it is has multiple built-in safety sensors, keeping people and pets safe while playing fetch, and making sure other dogs in the house stay safe during playtime.  While this easy to transport launcher works on D-cell batteries outdoors, it also comes with its own power cord, making it efficient for indoor play. To learn more about this fun interactive dog toy, make sure to watch the video below!

    I have two dogs, both rescues. Milo is a MinPin & Chihuahua mix with a limp on his rear leg from being kicked and having his pelvis broken. He was held at the shelter for 10 months ar evidence in an animal cruelty trial; then they were going to just put him down but we grabbed him. He’s had an operation and now he is fine (besides the limp) and he will catch balls as long as someone will throw them. My other dog, Monty, is a senior some sort of mixture of a Dachshund & a Pit Bull and some other things (yes, it is rather odd) – 15 years or so old and discarded like so much trash at the pound. He too needed an operation, but he is the world’s happiest dog now.

    We have a long haired Dachshund named Buddy. He is a lively lttle one, wanting to play all the time. I love to play catch with him but when my husband isn’t there I can’t go out alone due to a medical condition. This would be awesome for him. He runs so fast sometimes looks like he is just sliding across the yard. Always has to be 1 step ahead of me when my husband comes home. If I go to the door, he goes on the porch, when I go on the porch,he goes to the 1st step and on until he usually ends up at the truck, which I don’t know why he didn’t just go out and start there. We love him with all our hearts!

    This would be perfect for my friend’s ball obsessed Border Collie! He’d play all day if he could (he gives himself breaks when needed, then brings the ball back again and again)..

    I have two lovable dogs. Cookie is a Goldendoodle and is so sweet. She serves as a big pillow to our other dog – Pluto. He is a little whipper snapper just a fourth of her size. They have lots of fun together.

    If I won this ball thrower it would be for Miss Callie, my son’s Catahoula Hound dog, tireless catcher of balls. She would go nuts!

  7. Denise E. September 20, 2016 at 8:27 am -

    I have one small breed dog. She loves to play, especially with her toy ball. She follows me around the house with it until I give in and throw it.

    I have a Boston Terrier, he’s a wonderful family dog.

  9. Leah davis September 20, 2016 at 8:52 am -

    He’s a silver pit bull w gray eyes who thinks he’s the size of a chihuahua & has a heart of gold.

  10. Dotty J Boucher September 20, 2016 at 9:08 am -

    I don’t have a dog 🙁 but I do sit with dogs and I visit local shelters and play with the dogs and also my family all have dogs. This would be a treat for dogs when I’m at the park with them.

  11. Tracey L September 20, 2016 at 9:12 am -

    I’m the owner of two wonderful dogs, a 6 year old pit bull and a 12 year old chocolate lab. They’re a huge part of our family and they would both love to play with this!

  12. Sue V September 20, 2016 at 9:23 am -

    This product looks awesome. I have a 1 year old mixed breed rescue dog Elsie.. She is the best hiking and snuggle buddy ever…

  13. Debbie Clauer September 20, 2016 at 9:33 am -

    I have a pack of 11 Terrier mixes. The younger ones are somewhat hyper and love to play throwing things games.

  14. Rusty H September 20, 2016 at 9:50 am -

    We have a beautiful Golden Retriever named Chessie. She’s a wonderful dog. We love her to death..!! As you know, Goldens are clowns and Chessie is no exception. She keeps herself busy by throwing her own toys and then running after them.

    I have four dogs and this would not only benefit them but me too

  16. Bilger Susan Scribner September 20, 2016 at 10:11 am -

    My name did not come out correctly so I’m reposting this. I have four dogs so this would not only benefit them but me too

  17. Michelle Carlino September 20, 2016 at 12:17 pm -

  18. Amanda Patterson September 20, 2016 at 1:09 pm -

    I have a yellow english lab named Hazel who just turned 4 last month! I know she would have a lot of fun learning to use this!

  19. Tracy Snyder September 20, 2016 at 1:24 pm -

    My baby “Benji” is a rescue dog. He had broken ribs, broken jaw & was malnourished. We have had him for 1 1/2 years and he is the greatest thing we could ever have. My husband is 65, retired military and has never had children or a dog. So this has been a new experience for him. Benji is so funny. When my husband comes home, the garage door lights up and he goes a running to the door to meet him. Now really!!! I tell my husband this isn’t the 50’s and I don’t even rush to the door to greet him. My husband calls me when he is at work on his lunch break and I have to put the phone to Benji’s ear, just so he can listen to his daddy. Benji starts tilting his head from side to side. He is such a drama queen.

    I have a 115 pound Black Lab/Newfoundland 4 year old dog named Koda. He has a great personality that makes me smile after a stressful day of work. He is allergic to all meat so he has a strict diet to keep his hives from being severe.

  21. Erica Beaver September 20, 2016 at 3:16 pm -

    My dogs are my children. I love them unconditionally.

  22. debra dubois September 20, 2016 at 5:33 pm -

  23. deanna September 20, 2016 at 6:16 pm -

    I have a Jack Russell Terrier who loves to chase squeaky balls. She has so much more energy than I do.

  24. barbg September 20, 2016 at 6:58 pm -

    Well now this is a new unique product. I think all pet owners can use this.

  27. Melissa Crisp September 20, 2016 at 8:29 pm -

  28. Rachel September 21, 2016 at 10:50 am -

    We have a golden retriever named Molly. She is almost 4 years old. She loves to eat and play and she would love this. It would be great exercise and lots of fun too!

  31. Heather S September 21, 2016 at 5:16 pm -

    Skamp is a small dog with a lot of energy. He’s good spirited and brings a lot of joy to me and my family’s life.

    We just recently lost our dog, Sasha (an Alaskan Malamute) after many years. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge in June of this year. I am entering this contest now because I would love to win, and donate this launcher to one of the families that fosters dogs for Hospice Hearts, in Urbana, Illinois!

    • Susan Bewley September 22, 2016 at 1:52 pm -

      Maria, that is so awesome! I know how much it hurts to lose one of our babies after losing Reya suddenly this year. It really feels like a part of your heart is gone.

  34. Patricia Barraclough September 21, 2016 at 10:06 pm -

    We have 3 dogs. One is a 15 year old terrier. She is going blind and deaf and slowing down. She is still a sweetie. One is 10 and has a spinal injury. She still gets around pretty well and loves to play and chase balls. The youngest is a 5 year old pit bull mix. She has gotten a bit lazy and need exercise. This would be great for her. Our son works long hours and gets home to late to play outside with her. We could set this up while we are doing yard work and spend time with her getting some exercise.

  35. Linda Walker September 23, 2016 at 6:05 pm -

    I have two beagles that love being outside and playing in the yard.

  36. C keck September 24, 2016 at 9:09 pm -

  38. Sandra Kukla September 24, 2016 at 9:20 pm -

  41. Julie Parrish September 25, 2016 at 12:07 pm -

  42. Erin M September 25, 2016 at 5:29 pm -

    We have a full pit and a pit lab mix who love playtime with us and with each other. It will be a challenge though to get my boy to play with a ball for more than a few minutes without popping it.

  43. Debbie Terry September 26, 2016 at 5:39 pm -

    We have a rescue named Molly. She visits patients at Scripps Hospital every week. She is the sweetest dog ever and loves to run!

  44. Cheryl s October 1, 2016 at 7:38 am -

    We have a 10 year old springer spaniel named maverick and a 3 year old doberman mix named roxy. Both are spoiled rotten and so loved

  45. Jamie Williams October 1, 2016 at 2:44 pm -

    My dog Titan is a Siberian Husky who is rather old. He turned 14 in July. He is my baby. He is just like my child. And I have one, she is 10 and Titan has done nothing but protect her and I his entire life. He truly is an angel sent from God.

  46. Kasee Johnson October 1, 2016 at 8:40 pm -

    All 3 of my dogs would love this! Two don’t bring the ball back – ever – but the youngest one does! Lake is a German Shepherd / Terrier mix, Sage is an Australian Shepherd / Coyote mix, and River is a German Shepherd / Golden Retriever mix. River loves to go camping with us and this would be PERFECT for running her out of energy before bedtime.

  47. Katrina Weghorn October 3, 2016 at 7:00 pm -

    We have a shelter dog named Maya. She’s a black & white lab/chow mix as far as anyone can tell. She loves to sleep and chase birds and cats (not sure what she’d do with one if she actually caught one)

  48. cheryl larimer October 3, 2016 at 9:11 pm -

    We have a miniature schnauzer that loves playing ball. Our kids and neighbors all have dogs that would love to come play ball at our house.
