Why hand a dog a treat when you can launch it?

In this week's "Try It Before You Buy It" I put a pet treat launcher to the test to see if it's a lot of fun or just plain faulty.

Various companies make this pet treat launcher. On Amazon it can range in prices, between $4-$9. 

It promises to launch treats as far as 10-feet. It aims to encourage exercise as well as mental stimulation for eager pups. Also, no batteries are required. And a heads up, it does require small treats, about the size of a penny.
