How’s it going guys? Christopher Farro here
from the Product Education Team. Today we’re in Vail, Colorado and we have a very special
guest, one of our top marquee athletes – Floyd the skateboard riding bulldog. So today we’re going to be going through Fetch,
the dog harness. This is a new mount by GoPro. It’s for getting awesome POV from either the
backplate on the dog or on the chestplate. It’s very easy to install if your dog is being
cooperative. Floyd’s been awesome this morning so I don’t think we’re going to have a problem.
The first thing you’re going to do is take the chestplate and slide it all the way down
the straps so you have room for the head to go through. You’re going to place this through
here then you can either do this seated or have your dog stand. You’re going to take
the back strap and you’re going to wrap it through the underbelly. And then take the
hook and just hook it onto the loop on the back, super easy. And then you’re going to
take these front two straps right here and go through the front legs, under them and
then loop them onto the elastic on the middle of the backplate. So the Fetch Dog Harness
has two mounting locations – you can either do it from the backplate or from the chestplate.
It comes included with mounting hardware. You have a J-Hook Quick Release here so the
camera is elevated above the dog’s back. It has a tethered mounting loop for added security
as well as elastic holders for excess straps. Fetch the Dog Harness works on small, medium,
and large breeds of dogs ranging between 15 and 120 pounds. For smaller dogs you can remove
this chestplate so it’s not hanging as much and just do the back-mounted shot. We recommend
shooting at POV setting 1440p at 48 frames per second. If you’re worried about editing
that in post, you can always do 1080/60 Superview for all your shots. When you’re done using
your Fetch Dog Harness you can just throw it in the wash with all of your other clothes.
It’s completely washable and good to go for your next use. So that’s all we have for you
today with GoPro’s Tips and Tricks. I hope you enjoyed. Good boy.

  1. Will it cost less than 20 USD? Haha, I wouldn't think so considering its just another overpriced accessory. Stop milking us for money with your accessories. You're diverting us towards other accessory makers by doing so.

  2. This design looks SOOOO much better than the Sony version, which has numerous issues. I can't wait to get this one. Right On GoPro!Β 

  3. Have tried numerous different ways of mounting a GoPro on my dog and it's always too shakey when she's running. She follows me on the bike trails so when she's flat out it's wobbling too much. Any tips to keep it more stable or best position to mount it on the dog when they're running? πŸ™‚

  4. Have there been any issues yet of people complaining that your filming them and their nether regions? Β If I walked around filming from that height I would soon have the cuffs placed on me!

  5. Tried this today, and same issues as using the regular Chesty on my lab, It slides sideways!!!!! If i tighten it anymore he might not be able to breathe .. Β 

  6. QUESTION – Are there any advantages to using the GoPro Fetch ($60) vs simply flipping a GoPro Chest Harness ($40) to capture footage from the dog's POV? Anyone have experience with both?

    From what I understand, the Fetch has an extra mounting spot so you can capture from either the dog's back or from under their head, but aside from that, are there other improvements worth the extra $20? Is the Fetch more stable since it's designed especially for dogs? I've seen footage from the dog's POV captured with a flipped "Chesty" and it looked pretty good, but I'd love to hear your thoughts! FYI, I plan to record footage from the point of view of my 80 pound German Shepherd.

    I'd love to hear thoughts and opinions from people who have used one or the other, or both? Thank you!

  8. Those guys know why they don't show footage from this item's actualΒ intended purpose… Buyers should know, too… πŸ˜‰

  9. How are you showing the camera config box during playback? I want to do this also but cannot find a way to include it eg @ 1.36 in the top left it shows the camera at 1440 -48, battery meter, wifi etc etc. How do you do this?

  10. Anyone having issues with sound? The clip that connects from the harass to the camera shakes a lot even when the dog is walking slowly and its very loud.

  11. I don't really get why the slipknot is necessary in this, that's what it says in the instructions I got with this, I would assume it's for protection purposes so it doesn't fall of but doesn't the quick release buckle already do that?
