About the PetSafe Ricochet
We recently tried out PetSafe's new Ricochet toy with Juliet, a border collie belonging to one of our designers. Our first go at it was on our usually quiet Creative floor here at Crutchfield HQ with hilariously disruptive results. The chirping from the toys along with Juliet's enthusiastic pouncing ended up drawing a bit of a crowd.
Juliet got Ricochet good and dirty tossing it around our dog park.
How it works
Ricochet is actually a set of two egg-shaped toys that “talk” to each other. Turn each one on, and they automatically pair together with Bluetooth®. Place them up to 30 feet apart, and when your dog moves one, the squeak jumps to the other.
Seeking that moving squeak is a fun puzzle for many dogs, especially in a single-dog household where a dog doesn't have a big pack to play with. It can offer much-needed exercise and mental stimulation, especially on days when the weather keeps you and your pup indoors.
Big and rugged
We also let Juliet play with Ricochet in our on-site dog park so she could have a more vigorous play session. The toys are free from stuffing and there's no fabric to tear. They are also larger than I expected, but they have a soft rubber coating that made them easy for Juliet to pick up and toss around. And the slight bounce and roll made them fun to chase.

The toys are wirelessly linked and the squeak noise alternates from one to the other to stimulate your dog's curiosity. Each Ricochet toy is powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included).
Operation: The Ricochet toys are linked together via Bluetooth, with a range of 30 feet. As your dog interacts with one of the toys, the other toy begins to emit a squeaking sound to entice your dog to play. Each time your dog plays with one toy, the sound switches to the other toy, keeping your dog entertained for hours.
