Default Automatic Tennisball Launchers any good?

Anyone used anything like this? Is there anything else available that
does the same thing? This device says it won't work inside unless you
have 20' ceilings (have to remember that if I ever get another house,
LOL). I need something to keep our lab mix occupied. She drives us
nuts wanting us to throw the ball all the time!!! Thanks.

PS: Item can be viewed at:

Nah, these are designed for outdoor use.... What your dog needs is ten
year old twin boys to keep her occupied (NO, DON'T BEAT ME! I"M JUST
TEASING!).

There comes a time when a dog needs to be taught that certain activities
occur only in certain places, and that indoors has some rules.... of
your choice. For instance, a friend of mine with 2 greyhounds, a boxer,
and a miniature schnauzer, does not permit romping together indoors.
She also trains them to go outside to barf... at the first urka=gurka,
they head for the doggie door. My guys can ask to play retrieve games
indoors, but know that if I refuse to play that game at the time, they
must find something else to do... and the item they presented to be
thrown will be put away for the time being. They usually just find a
prime location to flop down so they can watch me for any sign of
readiness to play or perhaps move toward that marvelous room with all
the food... or they go off and wrestle with each other (they're small).
