Chuckit

ChuckIt! makes some of the greatest toys I’ve ever used. They are the makers of Flying Squirrel, the Ultra Ball, and my personal favorite, the Launcher.

Flying Squirrel

Reasons to Buy:

  • Flying Squirrels are great for dogs who love to play frisbee. They are soft on the mouth, and they really ‘fly’!
  • They are easy to fold to a small size for portability.

Reasons NOT to Buy:

  • They aren’t super durable. My dogs can pretty easily rip the center cloth out, and tear the edges.

Ultra Ball

Reasons to Buy:

  • Very, very strong. It also soars much farther than a normal ball.
  • Fits perfectly in the Chuckit Launcher.
  • Doesn’t get as gross and slobbery as most tennis balls.

Reasons NOT to Buy:

  • Its too expensive to take to dog parks (you could easily lose it, especially if another owner knows how nice of a toy it is)
  • Its small enough to get lost pretty easily.

The Launcher:

Reasons to Buy:

  • It is the easiest way to play ball with a dog that just won’t get tired quickly.
  • For those of you who are lazy dog owners like me, its a way to play with your ball crazy dogs without having to do that much work.
  • It flings the ball much farther than you could with your arm.

Reasons NOT to Buy:

  • They are kind of bulky.
  • Some dogs (mine being included) like to chew on the Launcher. This makes it pretty uncomfortable to hold.

Overall Rating: 9 out of 10.
