Tired of stooping down to pick up a slobbery tennis ball? The
Chuckit! Ball Launcher
takes care of that problem with a cleverly designed way to scoop up your dog's ball. All you have to do is hold the long plastic handle and put the claw at the end of the ball thrower over the ball. Press down, and the claw will pick up the ball and hold onto it. When you're ready, just launch the ball and repeat the pickup process. The Chuckit! Ball Launcher provides you with a way to play fetch with your dog for a much longer period of time. The launcher does most of the work, so your arm won't get sore and achy from throwing the ball again and again. This product is meant to be used in an area with plenty of space, so head to the local park unless you have a large backyard.Chuckit! Ball Launchers come in several sizes, so they can be used with small, medium and large dogs. The ball thrower sizes range from a 12 inches to 26 inches. They're also available in a variety of colors. This product is made from plastic that's lightweight yet durable. It's not heavy to hold, and it won't break easily. The size of tennis ball you use depends on which size ball thrower you end up getting. Chuckit! also has an assortment of balls that fit perfectly with the right launcher. They even have ones that glow in the dark, so you don't have to worry about losing them when you play fetch at night.
Over all this is a good product. The only problem i had was that the ball fell apart within the first three days.
Fun for everyone. by Nana Banana from Novato, CA01/27/2013
I had one of these before with my first Golden and he liked to fetch, but not retrieve. Same with my second Golden. Now I have Joey, a Golden, and he loves this to death. Goes around the house with a tennis ball in his mouth to tell me he wants to play. Some tennis balls fit too snug in it so I have to make sure I don't push the ball all the way back. This is great if you don't want to get "your" arm tired from throwing. So much easier.
Awesome! by Lisa Marie from Charleton, SC11/06/2012
I love this Chuck-It product. It makes playing fetch with my 9 month old puppy so easy. If you don't own one of these then go buy one right now.
Not same as in store by Jsbird from Boston, MA07/20/2012
This product is not the same as in retail stores. Our pups destroyed this ball within one use! I would have appreciated the opportunity to specify the color purchased. Otherwise, works the same as retail Chuckit.
Great!!!! by Pat SW NM04/24/2012
We have a very energenic german shepard and my daughter said I should buy a Chuckit to save my arm. I hate to say that she was right and momma wasn't this time. A lifesaver I finally can wear him down a bit.
Not as good as the classic by Decker from Seattle03/20/2013
I saw this newer version and decided to give it a try as I also own the classic. Went to the dog park and realized it doesn't throw as far as my classic version. Another pet owner at the park was using her classic and we compared. They look similar but the classic plastic was stronger and a tad bit longer? The distance between the classic and newer version was a huge difference and the classic more ergonomically designed. This will have to be put away and the classic to come back out.
Love this for really throwing, but I wish the ball that comes with it lasts as well as the chuck-it balls do. My lab popped it within 2 minutes, but I just put the 2 halves in the thrower and toss those. Still works.
Second One Purchased by Dusty's Mom from Elk Grove, CA02/16/2013
The first ChuckIt we purchased was the large one which we absolutely love. The ball goes far and is easy to handle. I decided to purchase the Jr. one which is a little more compact. The ball doesn't seem to go as far as the large one but there isn't always the need for the extreme distance so having the two seems to be the perfect setup for us. Definitely will always have one on hand.
Well worth it by ozzie'smom from Westfield, NY05/15/2012
Our schnoodle (Schnauzer/poodle mix), absolutely loves it when he sees the Chukit ball launcher! It is SO easy to get a great distance on each throw and provides him with the exercise and play he needs on a regular basis. Much easier on our shoulders, as well, and it's a plus not to handle the wet ball. Very sturdy construction and needed only a little practice to get the hang of getting a good launch. Have been using for a year.
Perfect for Smaller Dogs! by Joyce01/19/2008
I have corgis, who are fetching fools! Having a full sized tennis ball in their mouth didn't allow them to run and breathe comfortably. The smaller ball in the ChuckIt Jr is perfect!
I wish the seams in the balls were a little tougher. They're able to chomp them flat pretty quickly. They refuse the "Ultra's", it has to be a tennis ball. Brats! LOL!
Good Play toy by Saver2 from Texas03/06/2013
For a larger dog that needs exercise, this is pretty nifty. I usually run my dog 2 miles every other day so this helps with the other days when she wants to do something athletic and I want to take it easy. I saw my neighbor with one at the park and so glad I bought one!
Good choice by HayKay from Washington State07/02/2012
I have a ball crazy dog and this really helps my arm from getting so sore. The throwing is so much easier and my dog wears out faster because the ball goes further and bounces higher. Love it.
i have had this product for about 1.5 yrs. I use this product 2 times a day with my 2 dogs and they love love it. They look forward to going out to play. This is the best for dogs to exercise. You will make your dogs very happy to use this.
just what i expected by mariane from canton, oh02/27/2013
our previous chuck it broke after 5 years of intense daily use. i had just had major surgery and couldn't get out of the house, so i ordered this online. it is perfect, delivery was fast and we no longer have to pick up a slobbery ball!
Happy Dog... by Dewyz1100 from PA11/11/2011
I bought this product along with a two-pack of the Ultra Balls Medium size...Great fun for both man, and his best friend... My Shiba Inu likes to destroy fuzzy tennis balls like the one that comes with the Ball Launcher...the Ultra Balls are pretty heavy duty, and he enjoys chewing/playing with the ball inside as well...Bright Orange color helps find it in the evening... Great way to exercise my dog - he loves it. :)
Best Dog Ball Ever! by KLM from Isle of Palms, SC12/06/2011
I have invested in many types of balls for my two german sheperds, none of them lasted long. They were torn to pieces! We boat frequesntly and found these Chuck-IT balls to be great. They float, and you can find them easily due to the orange and blue color. To date my dogs have not been able to destroy them. No more wasting money on balls that don't last.
The best ball you can buy by Teddy's mom from Novato, CA05/12/2012
--High bounce that lasts. My dog likes to chase a bouncing ball (rather than traditional fetching); these bounce much higher than a tennis ball and don't lose their bounce like a tennis ball does.
--Very visible. Bright orange that stays orange. Doesn't turn dirt-colored like a tennis ball.
--Rinse to clean. If it lands in something really gross you can wash it with soap.
--Non-absorbent. Doesn't retain remnants of anything disgusting it lands in, doesn't retain odors, and doesn't get soggy. Wipe it off and it's dry.
--Floats. And the bright orange is a big plus in water as it is on land.
--Dogs love the texture. At the dog park all the dogs want to steal this ball and lie down for a while and squish it in their mouths.
--Non-abrasive. Unlike tennis balls, they won't wear down the enamel on your dog's teeth when chewed on.
--Lasts indefinitely and retains all its qualities for the life of the ball. A VERY strong chewer did damage one of my balls (it is torn through) but the only difference now is that it doesn't have as much bounce.
--The only negative about these balls is they are relatively expensive so it's a bummer when you lose one. Also it's too bad they don't squeak, but I think they couldn't put a squeaker in without damaging the integrity of the ball.
Durable & better for teeth by dmcinnc12/29/2012
Our vet steered us away from tennis balls because the covering can wear at tooth enamel and be eaten. We switched to these for our dogs --- fits in chuck-it ball launchers and is extremely durable. We've got some heavy chewers in our bunch.
The Best by madmony from So Cal12/15/2012
I purchased several of these for a Doberman Rescue. They will be well used. Chuck-it balls are great for Dobies. Thank you for your great prices!
no more searching anymore by martinxxl from Nieuwegein, The Netherlands, europe07/06/2012
Great product...! After buying and loosing dozens of tennisballs at last a ball that you never loose and that stays in one piece.
Good quality and fun to play with...also in the water!
best fetching ball made . . . . (just chuckit) by sophias friend "David" from Laramie , WY.04/04/2012
The ball doesnt fall apart into little choking hazards,no toxic or nasty coating that can be chewed off. My human "David" loves to chuck it for me. We get many hours of joy from this toy.

Fantastic lasting power! by ForOliandBuster from Northern CA05/19/2013
My English Mastiff (150 lb) loves to steal the balls from the Bull Terrier mix (55 lb). She can destroy Kong tennis-style balls in under 2 minutes (squeaker broken, and fuzz peeled off). The little guy is no slouch, but it does take him longer. BUT THESE HAVE LASTED FOR MONTHS! She steals, she gnaws, he steals back and taunts, but they are still intact! They were recommended by a friend, but I still can't believe how strong they are, and that my dogs still play with them! (Most really sturdy toys they lose interest in after a week, unless I coat them with treats.)
Favorite Balls! by grace12/06/2011
The Ultra Balls from Chuckit are super durable, they are easy to find because of the orange color and most importantly my dogs like them best. They are quite a bit more expensive then the run-of-the-mill yellow ones but well worth the price. EntirelyPets has the best price on them i've seen and the balls really last!
Great ball that works in most all conditions by Kulagal from Hawaiii10/31/2011
This is a great versatlie bouncy ball that work in pasture grass and most everywhere else. Great bright color to spot if you have to hunt for it. It does not go flat "overnight" either like some other balls.
Sturdy, better for teeth than regular tennis balls by Jsbird07/20/2012
This is the only ball to buy. Sturdy, last much longer than typical tennis balls. Doesn't collect sand/dirt, so they're much better for your dog's teeth!
These are great! by mlegere from North Carolina12/31/2011
My tennis ball crazy dogs love these even better. They don't get soggy, stand up to rigorous squeezing between powerful jaws and are easy to find in the grass.Very long-lasting.
Good Service by Don B from New Zealand10/23/2012
A very good product. My dogs love the Chuckit Ultra, and it is tough and durable. Also because of the color, easy to find in the long grass!
Very quick and reliable service from Entirely Pets.
way better than tennis balls by Indydogz from Philly PA12/14/2012
Even though I could get the tennis balls for free, tennis balls STINK. These hold up to my labs tough chewing (though I dont leave them out unless we're playing catch).
Tough by rhotch03/28/2012
My pit loves to chew more than return, these stand up, till you can "retrieve" it.
Good worth by Ethel from Macedonia11/13/2011
I have a 7 month old Doberman puppy and she destroys a lot of toys, but these balls survived her play and even being run over by several cars on a street. Well invested money.
Durable (and easy to wash) by holly11/06/2012
These hold up really well and wash up super easy (great when your dog is a slobberer).
One time ball. by Andy from Las Vegas, NV10/30/2012
You can only use this ball one time before it falls apart. When I take my Jake (dog) to the park and use this ball I know I will have to throw it away when I get home. This ball would be perfect if it wasn't so cheaply made and more durable. My dog loves to chew on it but when he does it falls apart. The color and texture is good but that is all that is good about this ball.
Greatest ball ever made by Jen from Michigan10/22/2012
My two German Shepherds destroy tennis balls very quickly. Yet, they have never been able to damage a Chuckit ball. These last forever. Great product!
Only Ball We Use! by Joan05/27/2009
Labs are crazy nuts for retrieving balls & this one is tough, bounces high & lasts a long time when left outdoors. Chance will spit out a regular tennis ball in favor of the Ultra Chuckit, this is THE BEST PRICE you're going to find for this product.
My dogs love them by Sue Gilmartin05/26/2009
These balls are great, much, much better than tennis balls. The last a long time.
indestructi-ball by Dieselblackdog01/10/2013
The only ball my ball obessed deaf Blue Heeler has not managed to kill, colour is great as it makes it easy to find for both her and I. Highly recommend :)

My dog Tigger LOVES these balls. They are extremely durable. He can destroy a normal tennis ball in minutes, but he has yet to even slightly damage any of these.

Best Balls by Lucy from Providence, RI05/30/2012
These balls last a long time. I have only had to replace them because they got lost, not sure how many years it takes to wear them out. My Lab loves them. Unlike tennis balls, they don't fall apart when she chews them, are easy to clean when they get dirty and they float (tennis balls sink if they get punctured).
Long lasting and better than tennis balls.
Better than Tennis Balls by Nick Sweeney05/25/2008
My dog has been very happy since giving up tennis balls for these. Since they are made of natural rubber they are not abrasive on dog's teeth like tennis balls are. And we've been playing with the same ball now for six months, they are very durable.
Destroyed in Under 5 Minutes by BettyPickup from The Garden State02/19/2010
Buy the Chuckit! Ultra Balls instead. These regular tennis balls from Chuckit have NO bounce to them. Don't know how they managed it. Even generic tennis balls last a little while with our Pit Bull before being chewed up, but not these. Save your money and get the Ultras they last.
I have two shelties. One is just under 20 pounds and he has a very difficult time getting a regular sized tennis ball in his mouth, his mom has a plate and 15 screws in her arm and has a hard time throwing. These solve the problem for both of us. I have the chuck it throwing tool as well.
It's strong by It's me12/17/2012
My dog is hard on balls. She will destroy a cheep ball in 2 hours. She has been playing with the "chuck it ball" for 3 weeks and the fur is not ripped apart yet. It's a strong ball and made well.
My papillon loves to play catch. The glow balls are great and they can find them in the dark without a problem. The glow lasts a good 25 min.
Smaller breeds and indoor activity only by Joker's friend from Russia11/26/2012
Too small for a JRT puppy I have. No, he is yet unable to swallow this but balls of the same size he used to play with were his toys several months ago. Better for newborns or smaller breeds.
Playing outside is impossible, if you hope to see a glowing ball, because it won't work - it's unlikely dark enough ever to make the ball a bright toy. But good for searching inside, when the lights are off.
INDESTRUCTIBLE! by Rose12/14/2012
It's the only fetch toy our Staffie can't destroy! And our Pug loves the little size. Great for evening play time - and when play time is over us humans can find the ball in the dark!
fun in the dark by martinxxl from Nieuwegein, The Netherlands, Europe07/06/2012
This is really a great product....!
Keeps our Rottweiler busy during the late hours in the garden or on the field..and the best thing is that she keeps it in one piece and you never have to search this toy in the dark, you can't loose it..!!
these are great for night time play. first time we used it, laughed like crazy seeing only this glowing orb bounding back to us. dog has no problem locating it in the darkness, although it does tend to disappear during the daytime, especially on light tile floors. we threaded a rope through one so we can use it with or without the launcher. makes a good tug-of-war toy.
Nite-time play ball by kidders from Roseville, Mi.03/13/2013
I like the glo ball because we can have an evening exercise in the dark. It must smell different than the regular blue rubber balls and my dog doesn't mouth it , but she does return it.
The construction is good I have 2 large labs and they like to really chew on them. So far they a holding up to the abuse.
Great purchase! by Kim from MI11/25/2012
My dog absolutely loves tennis balls - they are by far his favorite toy and he loves to play fetch. However, since we live in MI, it now gets very dark early so it's tough to play fetch. This glow in the dark ball is absolutely perfect. We bought two (and are considering more). Our puppy loves them and it's so cool to see it glowing in his mouth. We only let him play with these under supervision, but he has an absolute blast playing fetch with them!
chuckit max by dragon4801/01/2013
we never received-we never received-how do you rate that
Fun for some night play by papboyusa from Hot Springs, AR01/09/2013
My partner owns a black lab that LIVES to play ball. We got him the Chuckit! and he goes nuts for it. We keep it on top of the refridgerator and he will go and sit in front of the fridge and stare up until one of us goes and plays with him. I didn't realize the size difference in the Chuckit's! I wish this web site would have explained it more. Our Chuckit! uses the tennis ball size ball....and the glow ball I ordered is to big to fit in the throwing stick.
Chuckit by Wrangler07/11/2012
I have a German Sheppard, I've tried many toys & balls and this is the best by far, it's soft rubber my dog like to chew on it, and it gets slimmy slips right out of his mouth, that's why it last the longest. When I'm in the jacuzzi he throws it in the water it floats he can play fetch in the dark.
I by the balls in quantity, they get lost or he has chewed through them. I buy them On line vs the local pet stores there much cheaper.
Where is it going by Leo's Mom from Victor, NY12/15/2012
The erratic wobble of these balls keep the daycare dogs on their toes.
Chuckit Small Erratic Ball by dacriss from Portland, Or.12/10/2012
Sister-in-law purchased this for the wife’s poodle. Poodle loves it and was very sad when it went down the heater vent. Depending on how you throw it you can get different results. This is much better than a regular ball. Try back spinning and side spinning the ball. Low speed throws work best. Keeps the dog guessing where the ball is going to go. Would definitely recommend to others.
great ball by lr02/21/2013
My puppy really likes playing with this ball. It is high quality rubber without that offensive odor that some rubber toys have. He really loves to chase it and it is the perfect size for his mouth.
great product by dachsnterriers02/07/2013
My dogs love these & they are virtually indestructible. They are tossed indoors & out, retrieved, & chewed on by heavy chewers capable of destroying most toys. The erratic bounce keeps them on their toes. Ordered these as back-up because occasionally one gets "lost".
dogs love it by fhapgood12/31/2012
I don't know if this would work as well for every breed but Border Terriers are very focused creatures, always looking for a purpose in life, and these balls provide that. Stick a bit of peanut butter in one end and they will work on it for hours.
Not that different than any other ball by bubblemama07/09/2012
Don't expect any crazy antics with this ball. It bounces pretty much like regular ones.
Attention Getter by rhotch from Anchorage, AK03/28/2012
Increases the level of excitement, loves that sound!
never out of sight by martinxxl from Nieuwegein, The Netherlands, Europe07/06/2012
This is an amazing toy....because of the whistling noise our dog allways runs in the right direction....it makes it more exciting to chase and catch. And the best thing is....our dog keeps them in one piece....no more loads of balls for her, just her Chuckit-balls
Great fun and price by bfrank02/18/2013
Dani Girl and I love the new whistlers..much easier for her to follow and find.
by from 02/16/2013
Theese balls are a bit pricy but are great for distance throwing. they whistle a bit which facinates our do.

Best Purchase To Date by Dusty's Mom from Elk Grove, CA02/16/2013
We have a 7 month old lab with lots of energy. We noticed many other dog owners at the dog park with the ChuckIt so we decided to try it out for ourselves. Truly the best when it comes to playing fetch. The ball goes much farther than I could possibly throw it and the ChuckIt stick picks the ball up for you so no more slobbery mess on my hands. In addition, our dog loves the rubber ball. Tennis balls just don't hold up to his chewing and they are not as easy to wash and keep clean. ChuckIt - Absolutely wonderful.
Not up to par with other Chuckit products. by PeterG from Toronto, ON05/06/2013
I've had great experience with the Chuckit balls in the past, but have never tried these Whistlers. My lab has been using the regular orange/blue standard balls and they've lasted forever. The Whistler however has only lasted about 2 weeks before it was chewed to shreds. Way too soft and flexible. I'll stick with the standard Chuckit balls.
Best 'frisbee' ever by vizslalover from San Diego,CA03/10/2011
This is by far my dog's favorite toy, and the best frisbee-type toy I've found. It flies really well, doesn't hurt my dog's mouth or teeth when she catches it(because of the soft rubbery outer rim), she can pick it up regardless of which side it lands on, and the inner ring of the disc is super-tough backpack-type material that has withstood numerous games of tug-of-war between my dog and her doggie friends.
dogs gone crazy by dog lover11/27/2012
I have 3 dogs and they all just love this item. they like to catch it and play tug of war with it.
Great flying disc! by Karen P. from Shipman,VA05/22/2013
These discs are tough but soft and they float. They are an awesome frisbee. Even bought an extra one for my husband & I to use. So the dogs have one & we have one too! Love them!
This ball has a grat bounce, but not recommended for big chewers.
Fun by kbauman101 from Texas08/11/2012
My lab loves this for inside play, not special on grass but holds up to his chewing fantastically.
Just wanted to try something different. Got it on sale, so price was right. Durable construction, should last a while. complaints: wish it was orange for better visibility in grass/water; has ridges which tend to hold in dirt more than ultra ball.
Great for retrieving fools! by ellenj from N. Texas02/01/2012
These Chuckit! balls hold up to my young enthusiastic retriever's efforts to destroy them! They also bounce erraticly as advertised, which helps the ball elude dogs for just a little longer on each throw. they are also not quite as likely to take a huge bounce over the fence into the neighbor's yard. If they are anything like the original Chuckit rubber balls, they will last a very very long time!
Fits my pitcher thing. by Barton from Leoma, TN 3846803/27/2013

dangerous toy by mygsds06/01/2012
I would be careful using this toy. My dog brought it back to me and could not release it. Found her canine tooth was stuck in the hole. I would stick with the solid rubber balls for the Chuckit.
Better than the other balls but..... by Andy from Las Vegas, NV10/30/2012
This ball is a lot more durable than the felt ones in the store that cost $3 each. I also like this ball because it whistles when you throw it. The other balls are only good for one visit to the park and then they fall apart. The only problem with this ball is it is a little too small for the Chuskit stick and the color (blue) is sometimes hard for my Jake (dog) to see after I throw it. Other than that it works great and is a lot better than the cheap felt balls they sell at the store. If this ball was a little bigger and came in an easier to see color it would be perfect. If you are tired of paying $3 for a ball each time you go to the dog park then this ball is for you.
Warning by Eva from Seattle03/24/2012
I have used the chuckit whistle ball for over a year with my dog. However, yesterday we had a scary incident. When he caught the ball, it slipped down his throat and got lodged. He couldn't breath or cough it out. Thankfully, after several tries, I was able to hook my finger into one of the holes and dislodge the ball. The rubber gets very slippery from saliva and there was frost on the ground which contributed to how slippery it got. This can be a dangerous toy for dogs.
