The Best Dog Fetch Toy, the Chuckit Ball Launcher,

Updated on July 15, 2014

Your dog loves to play fetch. I mean they REALLY love to play fetch. So you REALLY need the Chuckit Ball Launcher. Seriously you do.  Why? To save your arm, your sanity and your preserve your well being.

Think about this scenario. You come home from work and "Buddy the Golden Retriever" greats you with a tennis ball and drops it at your feet. You throw it. He bring it back again. You know this could go on for hours until he looks up at your face panting with exhaustion. (He's called a retriever for a reason)

You on the other hand are too much of a sucker to resist that cute face and you continue to pick up the wet, slimy tennis ball and attempt to throw it for the hundredth time, all while not getting dog drool on your shirt.

During this hour long process your impressive 100 ft throw has been reduced to maybe 20 feet and "Fido" is NOT impressed. What is a dog lover to do? The Chuckit Ball Launcher is an ingenious pet invention. 

Never Pick up A Slimy Tennis Ball Again

You never have to touch up a slimy, drool covered ball again. Not only that by you can throw the ball three times further with less effort. You can now exercise your dog without wearing yourself, or your shoulder.

The Chuckit comes with it's own ball, but when it wears out you can use any tennis ball. Throw multiple balls for multiple dogs in a fraction of the time further with less effort. You might want to stay at the dog park for hours now before getting tired. 

The Best Dog Fetch Toys on the Market

Yes, I think the Chuckit dog fetch toy is the best dog fetching toy on the market, but everyone wants variety in life. Below are a few other options for playing fetch with your dog.

Hyper products makes a great ball launcher which hold four balls at one time. This arm sling shot device is handy when you have multiple dogs and you can launch balls in quick succession. Very similar to a rocket slingshot.

You can launch more than the standard Chuckit "tennis" ball with the launcher.

Chuckit also has available a hard rubber ball, a whistler ball, and a glow in the dark ball for those fetch games that last until after dark.

Watch the Chuckit Ball Launcher in Action

Want to see the best dog product in action? Watch these video of people throwing the ball three times further and their dog obsessively chasing it to the end of the earth. Ok, maybe not that far, but dogs who love to play fetch will go to almost any extreme to fetch that tennis ball.

The Chuckit Ball Launcher also doubles as a snowball thrower.

Make snowballs with your Chuckit Ball Launcher and throw them to your dog in the winter.

Tell Me About Your Dog

I'd love to hear more about your dog and your pets. I have a Boxer and a Jack Russell. Leah, she loves to play fetch, the Jack Russell could care less, he'd rather chase invisible frogs in his dog pool.

      @Donna Cook: I've heard of the Paraflight but not the Amphibious Bumber, I'll have to check them out. Thanks for commenting.

      Great lens! Chuckit makes fabulous dog toys. My fur-kid, Buffy, loves the Paraflight (Frisbee) and Amphibious Bumper.
