I got Dazzle a used GoDogGo automatic ball throwing machine today. I didn't get back home till after dark, but I set it up and had it do a few throws off our patio. Dazzle figured out that he should drop the ball in the bucket right from the start. By the 5th or 6th throw, he was backing up to the catch point to wait for it. LOL I can see this getting a LOT of use in the coming months! Hopefully it works with balls covered in frozen slobber :-)
I'll try to get some video tomorrow if it's not raining.
