Product Description

Size: Classic 26M


Say farewell to slobbery games of fetch. The brilliantly-simple design of Chuckit! means you'll never have to pick up a sodden tennis ball again. Perfect for ball junkies of all breeds and sizes, this nifty little toy is like an extension of your arm. You'll throw longer and faster and keep hands slime-free, all without wearing out your pitching arm. With practice, it's possible to fling a ball as far as 140 feet, tiring out the most fetch-happy retriever in a shorter period of time. Chuckit! is also great for owners with mobility issues, since there's no need to bend over and pick up balls. Simply place the claw over the ball and press down. The Chuckit! tool snaps around the ball and holds on. To get the most distance out of the tool, use an overhand throw and follow through. Use only standard-size tennis balls, and be careful not to throw directly at animals or people. This set comes complete with a ball to get you started. --Mary Park

Product Description

The award-winning original Chuckit. Ball Launcher is a total revolution in fetch technology, designed for hands-free ball pickup without bending over, and throws the ball 3 times farther than you can with your arm. Use the Chuckit. Ball Launcher with all Medium Chuckit. compatible balls.

Important Information

Safety Warning
<P>Read instructions before use.  High-speed flying tennis balls can cause injury.  Do not use product to aim or throw directly at people or animals.  Not for indoor use.  Use only standard tennis balls.  Be alert, ball may travel in unanticipated directions.  Adult supervision recommended for children.</P>


Here's How to Chuckit! 
There's a learning curve of 10-20 throws.

Find an open area, away from people, animals and buildings.  With the ball in the Chuckit!, grip the handle firmly.

  1. Extend your arm back over your shoulder until the ball is behind you.  Then swing it forward in a smooth arc.  Remember to follow through.
  2. The Chuckit! will release the ball when you swing it fast enough.


Aim High - the Chuckit! tends to throw the ball downward.  Don't watch the Chuckit! while you throw.  Instead, look where you want the ball to go.

Pick It Up
Holding the handle of the Chuckit!, place the ball claw over the tennis ball and press down firmly.  The Chuckit! will grab the ball and hold on.

If your dog isn't one for fetching balls, this is probably not the toy for you. However, if your dog is the kind that lives to run down tennis balls, you NEED to own this product.

I own two Chuckit's. I have the large version featured here and also the small size version. I actually tend to use the small size more often because it's easier to control your throws and I'm not as often in an area where I can make use of the large size's range. The small size sill allows you to chuck it pretty darn far if you want. However, for when you are at a wide open area (like a park or beach) and you want the herculean ability to catapult a tennis ball to the outer limits of your dog, this large size Chuckit can't be beat.

The light weight of a tennis ball makes it very difficult to throw long distances no matter how strong your arm strength is. Even throwing 40yrds gets strenuous over time, but with Chuckit, little more than the flick of a wrist will achieve that distance. Plus, the length of the product makes bending down to pick up slimey, slobbery, wet tennis balls a thing of the past.

There were two reasons I wanted a chuck it when we got our dog. Picking up gross, dirty, slobbery tennis balls is no fun and I have a bad shoulder. I have had three surgeries on my shoulder so my mobility with it is limited thus making throwing difficult. With the chuck it, I can throw a tennis ball across the entire dog park with a flick of the wrist. After the dog brings the ball back and drops it the tennis ball pushes back in to the chuck it and my hands never have to touch the ball.

It takes very little practice to learn how to use the chuck it and get the ball as far or as short as you want it to go. You can throw overhand, sidearm or underhand and get the results you want.

The chuck it works with any standard size tennis ball and is made of thick durable plastic. A must have for dogs who love to fetch balls.

This toy is great. It throws the ball farther than you can by hand but, the best part is - YOU do not have to touch that gross ball ever again! The dog drops the ball at your feet (if he doesn't you don't throw it and he will learn...) Then you use the "chuck it" to pick it up and throw it. My dog jumps around like a maniac when he sees me pick up the "chuck it". He loves it. The second best fetch toy is the original floppy disc, we have tried other frisbee type toys but the floppy disc is easiest for the dog to actually catch - But the "chuck it" is the number one toy. (The floppy disc gets slimy and goober covered - and as I said you NEVER have to touch the ball with your hands when you use the chuck it)

I absolutely love the Chuck It because it is the only "toy" I have ever found that is capable of tiring out my 2 year old pit bull who is built like a grayhound and will run til she falls over if I let her. Instead of having her bouncing off the walls or destroying stuff or digging holes in the yard because I don't have enough time to completely tire her out by taking her for the standard 45 minute walk/run, I can stand in my driveway and "chuck" the ball back and forth for 20 minutes or so and when we are done she is so exhausted her tongue is hanging to the ground! Not only is it convenient for me by allowing me to spend quality time playing with the dog every day, it also keeps her happy and healthy.

As for the people who say that the Chuck It releases the ball too early, that is not the fault of the device, it is the person launching it. There is definately a technique to correctly throwing the ball, it has to be a full wide arc of your arm and you cannot turn your wrist at all, otherwise the ball goes flying off to the side. It is kind of like bowling, you must be facing the direction you want the ball to go, do a wide completely overhand throw and do not turn your wrist. Anyone who can do that five or six times will not have a problem with when the ball is releasing. I also use regular tennis balls with the Chuck It every single day and I never have a problem with the ball being too small. As a matter of fact, the tennis balls are better because they have much more bounce to them compared to the Chuck It balls. My pup likes to jump and catch the ball, so it is better for us if the ball bounces a lot. Also if you play with the dog in the snow, you can count on loosing balls a lot (until the Spring time anyways) so it is much more economical to buy regular tennis balls.

Size Name: Sport 18M Verified Purchase
First of all, Chuckits are awesome. They let me throw a tennis ball repeatedly to my dog, thereby giving him much-needed exercise and saving my arm from soreness, and my hand from slobbery balls. I am used to the 22" long models so I was hesitant at first to try th 18" shorter models. However, these shorter Chuckits are fine once you get used to them. Like any successful product, now there is a plethora of Chuckit models. I am confused and I am a Chuckit veteran. My advice is to buy an 18" or 22" model, both will work fine, but above all else be sure that the model you get will accept standard tennis balls. I have a dozen Chuckits from 25 years of dogs, and all of them have accepted standard tennis balls. I have heard that some of the newer Chuckits won't accept standard tennis balls. I would not buy a Chuckit that does not accept standard tennis balls.
