The GoDogGo G4 launches balls at the optimal upward trajectory to avoid launching the ball at the dog. This is a great safety feature. Even with this feature though owners should train their dogs stand a few feet back from the launcher to avoid hitting the dog.
Sensors for Safety
Sensors are built into the GoDogGo G4 unit that sense when a ball is ready to be launched. The motor in the unit does not continuously run. The motor turns on only when a ball is loaded or returned to the bucket. This keeps your dog from getting a ball launched soon after it’s returned to the bucket.
