We're Nearly There - We Need Your Help

We've created a product we think you're going to love. Now we need to come up with the last bit of funding necessary to produce our very first batch of swiftpaws. From tooling to materials, there's a lot of upfront cost that goes into production.

We've done the engineering, design, prototyping, and testing. Now we're asking you to help us take our production-ready prototype the rest of the way.

Please take a moment to back our project today. Your credit card will not be charged until we reach our goal of $20,000 and after our campaign ends.

"I need this in my backyard!"

For years, we have had a commercial version of swiftpaws for sale. We have attended numerous events, letting people's dogs give swiftpaws a try. Every event we go to we get countless requests for a swiftpaws that people can  take home with them. And now, swiftpaws for your backyard is finally here! As one of our backers, you'll be among the very first who can say: "My dog has swiftpaws"

More than just a toy:

A premium, made in the USA product, developed by dog-lovers. SwiftPaws is the result of nearly 6 years of passion, love, and hard work. Dogs love to chase, and most dogs don't get the daily exercise they need. Now they can, with swiftpaws.

Give your dog their best life... even when yours is busy. Each swiftpaws session is only a couple minutes long, so you can make the most of your busy schedule.

Get your dog active, so they can remain mentally and physically healthy. Pet obesity is a major problem, active pets are healthier pets and swiftpaws is a great addition to your pet's active lifestyle.

Get social. Swiftpaws is not just for your dog alone - invite one of your dog's puppy-playmates over and amaze your friend's and family (and their dogs!).

Play inside or outside. Swiftpaws works great indoors, too. In fact, even cats enjoy getting in on the action! We usually anchor the machine and pulleys with weights; it's a blast to watch pets enjoy swiftpaws indoors!

What's in the box:

Countless hours of thought, testing, design, and effort has gone into creating swiftpaws. When you become one of our backers at the supporter level you'll be receiving everything you need to run swiftpaws straight out of the box! Included in your reward will be:

  • 1 swiftpaws machine for your backyard
  • 3 field pulleys
  • Anchors for the machine and pulleys
  • A starter pack of line and lures (this will last for many sessions!)
  • Informational material (instructions and/or links to instructional videos)
  • A rechargeable battery and a battery charger
  • A swiftpaws remote controller
  • Lots of love and thanks from us to you!

The SwiftPaws support team goes way beyond John & Meghan. We are fortunate enough to be connected with a number of incredible individuals and firms, including, but not limited to, those listed below:

Risks and challenges

Developing, launching, producing, and delivering a new generation of SwiftPaws product is a big challenge. We have a solid history of producing and delivering our previous generations of SwiftPaws product, and we have a great group of people, including a top-notch product development firm, helping us as we continue to work towards our third generation of SwiftPaws.

Although it is possible (read: likely) that we will experience bumps and setbacks along the way, we have carefully estimated our delivery times and allowed for variances in the anticipated schedule.

We strive to be transparent in our process, and we are confident in our timeline and capabilities. If SwiftPaws is funded, we will do everything in our power to meet our estimated delivery date of September 2018.

Additionally, we promise to keep our backers informed of our progress. Bringing a product into the world is a path filled with ups and downs; we've been through the journey with our first and second generations and we invite you to share this third generation product journey with us.
