If there is no blue light on the machine, it means that SmartPult is not connected to any phones.
What comes with my SmartPult order?
You will receive three 50mm mini balls, an AC adapter, a funnel, and the SmartPult machine.
How do you clean the SmartPult?
Ensure that the machine is switched off before you start cleaning. You can use a damp cloth to reach into the from the top of the machine and pull the other end out slightly. By pulling the cloth back and forth, you will be able to remove the dirt and slobber from the insides of the tunnel.
Is the SmartPult safe for my dog?
When training your dog to use SmartPult, we recommend that you teach it to stand beside the machine as it prepares to launch. At the highest launch setting (8m), the product can launch the ball at speeds that may injure your dog, especially if they are standing directly in front of the machine. While most dogs are quick learners, it is best to have the first few play sessions supervised by their owner until the dog is fully trained.
Can I still launch balls without the App?
SmartPult is able to operate without the App in the automatic mode! When SmartPult is not connected to your phone, you will see that the blue Wi-Fi light is turned off. You can then simply place balls into the funnel and the machine will automatically launch when it detects an incoming ball. In the automatic mode, after the ball launches, there will be a 5-8 seconds time delay before the treats are dispensed. This gives the dog time to return with the ball and that's when it will be rewarded with treats!
Can I let my dog play with SmartPult on his own?
Yes! As long as your dog has been trained to fetch the ball back to the funnel on its own, you can leave him to hours of non-stop fun!
What happens if I put other types of balls or odd-shaped items into SmartPult?
SmartPult is specially designed to fit our 50mm mini balls. If you have a ball with the right size and a weight similar to our balls, it will be able to launch successfully. For lighter balls of the correct size, the balls will not launch at the standard distances. Furthermore, lighter balls may not be heavy enough to trigger the launch of the balls as the sensor is activated only when the weight of the ball presses onto the small lever in the tunnel. If the ball or item is too small, it might also fall into the gap between the level and the side of the tunnel and get stuck.
My dog slobbers a lot. Is that a problem?
If your dog is a heavy slobber, you may need to wipe off the slobber off the balls from time to time. Balls with slobber will tend to be heavier and may not fly as far. You can choose to set on a higher launch setting if your dog tends to slobber.
Do you need Internet to connect to SmartPult?
Not a must! You can connect to SmartPult directly via Direct Wi-Fi pairing.
How many devices are able to connect to one SmartPult at once? Four devices! However, it only makes sense that at any one time, only one device is able to control the launch settings. Therefore, when one phone sets a launch distance or toggles the automatic mode, the other phones will sync accordingly.
What do I do when the ball does not launch after I place it into the funnel?
This might arise when the sensor in the tunnel does not detect the weight of the ball. Ensure that you place the ball at the top of the funnel and let it roll down into the ball tunnel. By doing that, it presses onto the sensor with its weight and triggers the launch!
My ball is stuck inside the tunnel, help!
If the ball falls to the bottom of the machine beyond the sensor, it will not be able to trigger a launch. However, there is a trick to manually trigger it to launch! This is how it goes- use your right hand to hold the handle of the machine and tilt the machine backwards, at the same time use your left hand to press down lightly onto the sensor and you will hear the motor preparing for launch. Place the machine back down and the ball will launch out!
My treats are stuck. What do I do?
If your treats are stuck, remove the treats drawer and reach a finger to the bottom the treats tunnel to move the treats around and make sure they do not get stuck. After which, you can try to dispense again by tapping "Feed it" on the App.
The best treat sizes to be used with SmartPult is 5-10mm in size. If your treats are larger, make you you break them up before loading into the treats drawer!
Why is SmartPult not responding to my App?
Your SmartPult machine may not be connected to the App! You can verify that by looking at the Wi-Fi light on top of the machine. If the light is flickering blue, it means that it is connected to the App. If there is no light, there is no connection to the App.
My Wi-Fi is switched on but my phone is still unable to detect SmartPult. What should I do?
You will have to reset the machine by using a slim object to press the reset button in the small hole nearest to the funnel.
How long should I dip each paw into easyPaw for?
You just need to dip one to two paws into the swirling water for about 5-8 seconds before lifting it up to dry. It allows you to clean your pet’s paws quickly and without getting your pet all wet!
Does easyPaw really clean my pet's paws?
Yes! It removes dirt that is unreachable by wet wipes. The swirling motion helps to open up the furs and the current will remove any dirt that is lodged in between.
Does easyPaw dry my pet's paws as well?
easyPaw does not have a drying function, however, by dipping 5-8 seconds, you can simply use a paper towel or towel to wipe the paws dry. You may also dry the paws further by using a dryer.
I realized easyPaw comes with a tray. What is it used for?
The great thing is that the tray has multiple uses! You can use it as a food tray to feed your pet while their paws are being washed. Tip: For pets that are afraid of water, you can distract it with food! You may also stow a small towel when you bring easyPaw outdoors.
Must I use the middle plate?
It is definitely not a must to use a middle plate. The middle plate is used to separate the magnetic blade and the pet’s paw. It is also used as a support for pets that can step into the paw washer on their own. However, if you have a small-sized dog, you can remove the plate for a stronger current, and place its paw in to the top of the swirling water.
Will the magnetic blade hurt my pet's paws?
No! We designed it to be contact friendly such that if your pet paws come in contact with it while swirling, there will not be any pain.
How high do you fill the water?
We recommend to filling about half of the container with water.
What about water temperature?
You may use room temperature water. Alternatively, you can boil water and let it cool to a skin-safe temperature for a foot soak!
Can I add disinfectant solution into the water?
Yes! You can add anything like foot soak solutions, disinfectants, anti-bacterial or anti-fungal shampoos, or even saltwater formula into the water for paw hygiene and therapy.
How do I clean easyPaw?
You can bring easyPaw under a tap and rinse it gently. Just ensure that the bottom of the product does not come in contact with water as it houses a battery compartment. You can also remove the middle plate and the magnetic plastic blade to give them a thorough wash.
The magnetic blade moved out of position and makes a very loud noise.
Don't worry! Just switch off the power and re-position the magnet blade and turn on the power again. The blade will spin as per normal.
