Which kit should I get?Updated 2 months ago

It really depends. The first thing to consider is the size of the space you plan to set the course up in. It's not so important how big or fast your dog is. You control the speed and direction of the lure - so even if your dog is pretty fast - you can keep them engaged by changing the speed and direction to keep things interesting and fun. It's not about running as fast as they can. It's about having fun together in a way that is healthy and stimulating for your pup and you!

All our home lure equipment is "continuous loop" and can be set up to be any size up to the max that each particular system and your individual conditions allow.  

If your space is on the smaller side - or if you plan to use it indoors - Chase! is the kit for you. It is the only system we have that is "wall powered" meaning you plug it into your home wall outlet. 

If you have one or two pups, and the space to set up a course 200-300 feet. The Home Original Kit would be your choice. The battery lasts for about five 90 second play sessions before it needs to be recharged - this might not sound like a lot - just two 90 second runs usually tires a pup out, so it is sufficient for most home use.

If you have a large pack - or highly energetic or athletic dogs - but not a very large space to set up the course -  Home Original with an additional battery would be just what you need. You may also opt to purchase a larger capacity battery that would last longer on a single charge. NOTE: we do not sell larger capacity batteries for Home Original, this article has the specs you'll need to find a compatible battery locally or online: https://support.swiftpaws.com/en-US/larger-capacity-111v-battery-for-original-home-22065

If you have a large pack; exceptionally active or athletic pups; are a small business that caters to multiple dogs & you have a large space to set up in -  Home Plus was designed for you. 

The biggest difference between our Home kits are the size of the course they are capable of running. 

Home Original maximum size is between 200-300 feet depending on the area & conditions you have for set up. See: https://support.swiftpaws.com/en-US/what-are-the-ideal-conditions-for-the-perfect-course-22138
Home Plus maximum size is around 750 feet.

Chase! maximum size is 100 feet.
