This depends on each individual dog. Of our automatic ball launchers, we say that the iFetch Original is for small to medium breeds and the iFetch Too is for medium to large breeds, however we have seen large dogs use the iFetch and small dogs use the iFetch Too.
In order to figure out which size is best for your dog, we recommend you purchase a ball that is 1.5″ diameter and a standard size tennis ball (~2.5″ diameter) and test each one with your dog. If your dog prefers the 1.5″ diameter ball, then the iFetch will work fine. If your dog prefers the 2.5″ ball, then the iFetch Too is a better option.
Another thing to consider is the launch distance. If you intend to play with the product outdoors and launch it as far as possible, the iFetch Too is probably the best option due to its launch distance of 13 meters. It also has a rechargeable battery, unlike the iFetch, which has to either be plugged in or runs on 6 C batteries.
When deciding between the iFetch and iFetch Frenzy, consider a few factors.
Distance – If you are working with a small space, the iFetch Frenzy is a great option because the ball only rolls 6-12 feet each time. The iFetch, however, has a 9 meter setting that works well indoors. If you are looking for a further distance, the iFetch also has settings for 3 meter and 6 meter launch distances.
- Budget – The iFetch Frenzy is $89.95 and the iFetch is $199.95 whereas the iFetch Too is $399.95
- Power – The iFetch Frenzy is non-electronic and makes no noise. The iFetch requires 6 C batteries or a power cord plugged into the wall to power it on.
- Surface – The iFetch Frenzy must be used on a flat surface (indoors or outdoors). The iFetch can be used on almost any surface (indoors or outdoors).
