Product Description


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.


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

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.

I have only had this product one day now, so I can't attest to its longevity.

When I first opened it, I was a little clunky with it and wasn't sure if I would enjoy it. It seemed hard to snap the ball in and I was kind of smashing the ball against the ground to fully lodge it in. Gladly, after about 2 minutes, I was getting the hang of that part and came to find that I could fully snap the ball in place in about half a second by grabbing first with the back and pushing forward.

Let me put it to you this way, my dog and I lost the first ball I threw. I had no idea how far it would go and didn't anticipate it. Lets just say it went over my garage and somewhere into oblivion, goodbye chuckit ball :) Good thing the ball that came with it was nothing more than a regular tennis ball and I had plenty of those lying around.

The second time around was smoother, went to an open area and tested it at different speeds. There seems to be a sweet spot you hit, where throwing any harder doesn't add distance, but you get a feel for that pretty quick. The ball went far, imagine you putting your shoulder full into every normal throw and then adding a lot of feet, that was the average throw. It was great fun.

I bought this in anticipation of the summer, because last year I had thrown my arm out one day (I have an English Springer Spaniel) because my dog would literally rather have a heart attack than ever stop playing fetch. This year, I could see it in his eyes, whenever I would grab a ball he would give me the stare of, you are going to throw this ball so long your arm is going to fall off, lets go have fun!

Needless to say, I threw the ball farther, faster and for more time yesterday than I did any day of the summer last year.

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 is the smaller, more portable version of the 26-inch Chuck-It described below. It's easier to stow, but I believe (we need a physicist in here) that the ball will not go quite as far as the full-size version. Still, it will travel a long distance, may actaully be better for smaller dogs, and is easier to pack!

The Chuck-it is perhaps the best dog toy since the Frisbee, especially for dogs who love to run long distances to retrieve. That describes our golden retriever, for one, a dog who almost prefers chasing tennis balls to eating. Now anyone can heave a ball a long, long way so that your dog gets a satisfying workout and a more challenging retrieval. Just pick up the supplied colored ball (or a substitute, as chances are you will lose it) raise your arm high over your head and back, then fling it forward, with a slight punch at or near the top of your swing. The ball will travel far and fast. It may take a few tries, but it's not too difficult to learn. With practice, you can aim the ball well, and control the distance and trajectory with fairly good accuracy (much more so than hitting a ball with a racket). The Chuck-it is flexible and I've never broken one. Of course, for very short distances, or for a more intimate connection with your pet, you can still pick up the dog-soaked ball and throw it yourself. Highly recommended!

Take FOUR dogs, from a 16 month old German Shepherd down to a 13LB JRT (Jack Russell Terrier), an old fat guy with a sore shoulder and what do you get???

The need for the Chuckit! ball thrower! This is the best money I have ever spent! Seriously! Think about it! No moving parts! Simple to use! It uses Plain Old Tennis Balls!

That's right! When the included ball dies of old age, you need not buy 'replacement' balls - just buy TENNIS BALLS - they work perfectly!

No more wet hands from picking up the slobber ball! I can use this while sitting on a bench even :-)

Plus, using the Chuckit! you throw further too!

My wife loves the Chuckit! JR - she has small hands and the JR is a bit smaller, and is great when throwing from the front porch of our house.

All of our dogs have great ball drive. All were taught as pups to fetch tennis balls in the house, and outside too. I've tried using a tennis racket, I've bought the sling shot type ball launcher (tubes break, you need both hands, etc) - and in the past, I always was tired out before my dogs were. Not any more! With the Chuckit! the dogs will call it quits before me! There is nothing better than a tired and happy dog - best 14 bucks you'll ever spend!

I own 2 'Ultra' and 3 'JR' models - keep a JR in each car, and an Ultra in the back of my car, a JR hanging on the front porch, and an Ultra hanging from a hook at the back of the house - and a tennis ball will stay inside it - oldest one is bout a year old - no break-age yet (a few chew marks only)

If you have a dog that loves tennis balls, you owe it to yourself and your dog(s) to get this!
