Does your dog constantly drop the ball at your feet saying "Come and play and throw the ball for me"? Do they have more energy than you do? This is a load of fun you or your kids can have whilst playing with the dog. It does not matter if your kids are small and cannot throw the ball too far. They will certainly be able to load the K-9 Kannon and pull the trigger to give the dog a lot of fun all whilst putting a massive smile on their own. You wont have to ask the kids to go and play with the dog for a while. They will be out the back door before you know it because it is fun for them also. Leave it in the car ready for trips to the beach or dog park.
