Abstract: front page image
(EN)A ball launching apparatus is provided. The apparatus includes a funnel residing at an upper end of a housing. The funnel includes a channel for gravitationally directing a ball into a launch point within an interior compartment of the housing. The apparatus includes a hammer that strikes a ball through a chute, thereby releasing the ball from the housing. Both the distance at which the ball travels and the angle at which the ball leaves the chute may be adjusted by the operator. A method of exercising a dog is also provided herein.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil de lancement de balle. L'appareil comprend un entonnoir se trouvant au niveau d'une extrémité supérieure d'un logement. L'entonnoir comprend un canal permettant de diriger par gravité une balle dans un point de lancement au sein d'un compartiment intérieur du logement. L'appareil comprend un marteau qui frappe une balle à travers une rigole, ce qui libère la balle du logement. Tant la distance à laquelle la balle se déplace que l'angle auquel la balle quitte la rigole peuvent être ajustés par l'opérateur. L'invention concerne également un procédé d'exercice d'un chien.
