I noticed a few days ago that we seem to have acquired 5 ChuckIt's, which I feel is quite a lot for a family with only two dogs.
For those that don't have dogs or have dog or dogs and have never heard of a ChuckIt, it is essentially a plastic device that is used to play fetch with your dog.
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.
Reads the ChuckIt product description. It is definitely able to throw a ball a lot farther then you could with your own arm which makes your dogs more tired and happy. It also adds a different layer to your fetch game.
In the picture below you can see all the different models we have for Cody and Sierra's enjoyment.
The various models in the picture are the small Pocket Ball Launcher ChuckIt ($6.34 on Amazon), the regular long handled ChuckIt Ball Launcher ($10.21 on Amazon), the long handled Ultra Grip Ball Launcher Chuckit ($13.17 on Amazon) which I highly recommend since it's much more comfortable, and a medium sized Junior Ball ChuckIt ($9.12 on Amazon).
Yes, I know there are only 4 ChuckIts in the picture and I only mentioned 4 but we seem to have lost 1 of the medium sized Junior Ball models. Not sure if we left that one at the dog park one day or if it is in closet hiding somewhere.
After examining our collection of fetch devices for our dogs I started to realize why we had so many. First we started off with the large ChuckIt but I was inadvertently throwing the ball out of the yard. We got the medium-sized Junior Ball Chuckit which was great for your yard, but then we started to like to play in the house with Cody. That ChuckIt was too large for playing in the house which made us buy the smallest Pocket Ball Chuckit. Then I believe we decided that the large ChuckIt grip was uncomfortable so we decided to buy yet another model, the Ultra Grip ChuckIt.
It seems like we are crazy but it is actually Cody's favorite game and activity is playing fetch with a ChuckIt. He is actually a little obsessed with too obsessed with the game. Sometimes I look at his eye when we are playing and he is sooo happy it seems like he's on drugs. Does else's dog have the same affinity and love for ChuckIt?
Wish I had come up with these great fetch toys because they are really helpful for getting Cody tired when he isn't so annoying about wanting to play fetch.
