This compact version of the award-winning Chuckit! ball launcher, the Chuckit! Jr. is great for backyard use. Even greater, itís new compact size stuffs easily into a backpack for a quick trip to the park. Made of lightweight, durable plastic, the Chuckit! Jr. ball launcher measures 18 inches in length. Best of all, it is designed for hands-free pickup.
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.
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.
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.
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!
