Playing fetch with your dog is fun but throwing frisbee or ball requires vast space, and it's not everyday you can walk your dog to the park. You can try tossing a chew toy or dog biscuit in your living room but once the dog catch it, he'll just keep chewing it on his own, cutting short your bonding time.
PEZ dispenser-like "Dog Pets" doggie snack dispenser by Takara Tomy (of dog-to-human language translator BowLingual) can turn your dog's snack time into a whole new indoor quality time experience.

"Dog Pets" was demonstrated at TOY Forum 2010. It's a PEZ dispenser-like device to shoot a snack cube for your dog to catch mid-air.
Dogs are nearsighted and not very good at focusing, but the clicky sound will get his attention and help him focus.
