GoDogGo® Canine Activity Sport has been chosen by MSN Entertainment as one of the top 10 gadgets
for celebrity pooches. The patented design makes this product the only one of its kind for Fido.
At number seven on the list of "Toys for Celebs," Go Dog Go ($150), is a bucket-sized gadget that
launches tennis balls for Fido to fetch. All that the dog's human companion needs to do is select
the distance (from 15 to 30 feet) and frequency (from 7- to 15-second intervals), using the handy
remote controller. Pet owners can train their dogs to return tossed balls directly to the hopper for
GoDogGo Canine Activity Sport was designed and developed by Ron Thompson of Gig Harbor, Wash.
Ron is a product designer with an over-active chocolate Labrador by the name of "Hershey". Hershey,
like most Labs, cannot get enough of the game of "fetch." Ron acted upon this need to keep his dog
busy while he was working in the yard.
Since GoDogGo® was introduced, it has found many admirers from the elderly pet owner to the paraplegic
that absolutely needs to keep their pet fit but may not have the physical ability to do so.
