    Chad's Crappy Corner & His New Theme For May 2017, Pet Gadgets

    Chad polled our amazing Patreon members and asked them to vote on a theme for May. Their choice “cheap pet gadgets”. This week Chad's cheap pet gadget is the Coleman Pet Treat Launcher. Here's what Amazon says about it:

    You will have the happiest and fittest dog in the neighborhood with the Coleman Treat Launcher! Fill the easy-to-load Launcher with your pet's favorite treats and the spring-action trigger will shoot them over 10 feet away. Wrist strap for convenient carrying. $9.99 and Amazon Prime (price as of 5/12/17)

    And Chad's take: Chad said you have to pick the right size treat to put into the Treat Launcher or it will jam. When you watch this episode you'll see Charlie's reaction to it. The Treat Launcher seems to fire the treat very fast and pretty far away. Every time to sent a treat flying, he pretty much had to point out where it landed to Charlie. And the wrist strap? It had one, but it's so small, Chad couldn't get it on his wrist! So this gadget wasn't a big hit with either Charlie or Chad, who rates it 'officially crappy'.
