GoPro Unveils First Mount For Pets 

SAN MATEO, CALIF. (August 25, 2014) – Digging, running, swimming, hunting and exploring – dogs can now showcase their world using the new Fetch mount from GoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRO), the company’s first pet accessory. The Fetch dog harness has two mount locations for HERO cameras – one on the back for over-the-head shots and another on the chest for a field of view closer to all the action. The fully adjustable mount is designed to fit small dogs of 15 pounds (7 kilograms) to large breeds up to 120 pounds (54 kilograms). 

“The adaptability and versatility of GoPro cameras make them the perfect device to document life from a dog’s point of view,” said Paul Osborne, GoPro’s senior director of product management. “We designed Fetch to meet the unique needs and usage for pets and can’t wait to see the images and videos that owners will capture and share now that they have a mount specifically for their dog.”

The Fetch harness and HERO cameras in appropriate housings enable dog owners to document a range of pet activities on land or in water. Mud, snow, water and woods are no match for Fetch – the water-friendly mount holds up to the elements and can be machine or hand-washed to keep it clean. An included camera tether ensures that the GoPro stays attached, no matter what type of play the dog engages in.
