    A new Hyper Pet K-9 Kannon for smaller dogs.

    Hyper Pet makes two versions of their K-9 Kannon Dog Toy, There's the original Kannon that shoots standard size tennis balls and the newer K-9 Kannon Mini. (I showed the mini on World News Now.) Both Hyper Pet K-9 Kannon Dog Toys shoot tennis balls, but not your everyday tennis balls. The company says they are safe for dog's teeth, made of Grade A Rubber and do not contain harmful coatings or gases. (Of course the mini model shoots a smaller size tennis ball.) And once the ball starts to get a bit yucky after your dog has caught it a few times, you can use the Hands Free Ball Pick Up. Shoots a ball up to 75 feet. But how far the ball goes depends on the far back you pull the launcher. You can also store the ball that comes with unit right on the Kannon. Amazon lists the sizes as follows: K-9 Kannon Mini: 10 x 15.5 x 2.75 inches / Original K-9 Kannon: 24 x 10 x 3 inches. The mini (the one I showed on air)  is at the link below and it's under $11 (as of 3/16/15)
