Walking your pooch is about to get a lot more exciting.
For your dog, there is nothing better than walk time, and as dog owners, we love to see them running around, having fun and generally just being the best creatures on earth.
Now, you can step up your walk game as Aldi has started selling 'Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Launchers'.
Similar to the classic Nerf Gun, the toy allows you to belt out tennis balls for your dog to run after.
In fact – if you can't throw to save your life – this toy will throw the tennis balls up to 50 feet.
The Nerf Dog also has a hands-free pick up feature, controllable power and comes with three tennis balls.
On the Aldi website, they write: "If the family dog enjoys games of fetch, give them a game that's really exciting with this brilliant Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Launcher.
"A great interactive toy your dog will adore, simply pull the trigger back and press to blast the ball up to 50 feet in the air.
"They will love chasing the ball, and your arm won't get tired from throwing, making it a great addition to your walkies."
And at £10.99, this item is flying off shelves.
Customers are also loving the item, with one person commenting: "Great value hours of endless fun for my doodle."
Another wrote: "I bought this for a friend with joint problems who had difficulty throwing a ball.
"It is not only painless but as she has a big garden she can shoot it from the back door when the weather is bad and not be in danger of falls.
"As a bonus the youngsters like to do it as well."
