Pair this Classic Launcher with the [Breathe Right Fetch Ball 2-Pack toy] (https://www.chewy.com/dp/172247) or the [Breathe Right Fetch Ball toy] (https://www.chewy.com/dp/172250).
This launcher does make it easier to throw the ball. The ball that came with it though is not durable. My guy had it in two pieces the first day, and he isn’t a heavy chewer. I ordered two of the larger balls, and although it says they fit, they fit the larger launcher. I can with difficulty wedge the larger balls in this launcher, but it is not a hand free operation.
I am 60 years old, babysitting my daughter’s 2 year old husky, who loves to run and chase a ball! We have the land but I throw like a small child. This ball wand is exactly what Mochi and I needed. Even with limited strength, I am able to throw the ball 20-25 yards.
My golden retriever will not go outside unless he sees this in my hand. It saves me from bending over each time to pick up his ball. It is made very well and the first one I had lasted three years. We now have two more new ones. We use it every day and my puppy loves it.
Had pup w/chronic UTIs from birth; many urine samples. She'd jump away when tried to collect sample. My ingenious idea? Yup! A ChuckIt handle w/cup, held by duct tape. She had no idea when we'd catch her urine as it wasn't invasive at all. Cleaned/disinfected cup and handle after every use by removal of duct tape.
The ball thrower is wonderful. The ball itself didn't even last two playtimes before it was falling apart. I don't recommend this product. Buy a different ball thrower and use your own balls.
I've been using their products for over 20 years! My dogs love the chuckit, but I recommend all of their toys. My dogs destroy everything, except the chuckit toys.
The fuzzy version of the kit, that's like a tennis ball, was broken along the equator two minutes after we were on the field, and was a shambles by the time we got 100 yards. When split like that it tends to get stuck on the dog's tongue as you might know. Completely unacceptable. I hope the hard balls are better.
Easy to pick up the ball and throws an amazing distance. Just don't leave out in the yard for the dog to chew the stick like I did....
My german shepherd runs and runs and runs. I could never through far enough for him to get a good run. Now we both can enjoy play time much more.
Normally Pyr puppy are not retrievers but we have have an exception. She loves to chase the ball and return it for more. Saves my arm when I’m playing with her.
