GoPro users have used their devices to film from all sorts of places, including inside washing machines and in a pan while poaching eggs. Now, they can find out what the world looks like from the perspective of their dog. The company has released the Fetch, a camera harness for man's best friend.
There are other camera mounts for dogs available, but the Fetch is the first offered by GoPro itself. The Fetch harness provides a means of attaching a GoPro to either a dog's back or chest and is adjustable to fit dogs from 15 lb to 120 lb (7 - 54 kg).

The camera mounts built into the harness are compatible with GoPro Hero cameras and hardware for mounting is supplied with the harness. A tether is also supplied to ensure a user's camera remains tied to the harness should the mounting kit fail or be broken by a dog's rough and tumble.
GoPro says the Fetch can be used in mud, snow, water and wooded conditions and that the mount is designed for durability. It can be machine or hand-washed if (or more likely when) the need arises.
The Fetch is retailing for US$59.99 from GoPro and other selected stockists.
