Let your dog play a fun game of hide and squeak with the PetSafe Ricochet Electronic Dog Toys. These two-for-one dog toys pair electronically to get your dogs running back and forth as they follow the "moving" squeaker sound. The way the Ricochet works is to simply press down on the power buttons to turn on both balls. The balls will make a sound to let you know that they are on and paired. Then, when your dog interacts with one of the toys, the other toy makes a squeaking sound from up to 30 ft. away. Dogs can stay active by chasing the squeak between the toys.
To be honest, my highly active dogs didn't know what to make of these toys at first. They were intrigued by the sounds and took to them quite quickly. I liked that these toys encouraged my dogs to run around chasing the sounds and moving the balls. Plus, I liked that these are no-mess toys, i.e. no stuffing or actual squeakers. The 60-minutes no-activity auto turn-off is an added feature that saves batteries, too. That being said some dogs might not like the noises these toys make, even though they are not terribly loud or scary. The toys are designed to be played with as a pair with your dog running from ball to ball chasing the sound, but my dogs also just liked chewing and playing with a single ball.
These electronic dog toys are great for dogs that need lots of mental stimulation and suffer from boredom. They are especially perfect for single-dog households.
These toys require 6 AAA batteries, which are not included. The Ricochet is backed by a one-year manufacturer's warranty when purchased new from an authorized retailer.
