Default Chuck-it? Small ball, long handle?? (for ppl that work in pet stores)

Do you guys still carry the chuck it with a small sized ball but a long handle??

I bought mine about 2 years ago for Nia and it's starting to get pretty worn out by dogs and kids playing with it and I want a new one but all the ones I can find with the small ball are short handled ones.

Mine is kind of like this but in pink.


But I can only find these now??



I really need the long one because I literally throw it as far as I possibly can for Nia, the short one doesn't throw very far.

Edit: Mine is a 20 inch handle.

Ahhhh just throw it! :P I'm kidding.

I would just throw it, but I play softball. I out threw a chuckit once.

LOL I can't throw very well. But this thing's awesome! It throws 3/4 the length of a football field and that's how we play fetch. Makes her run a LOT more!

Especially with the little balls. If you really try to hurl one, the shoulder damage... (my shoulder is bad from a high stakes game of wiffle ball). You shouldn't be able to out throw a chuckit, if you're the one throwing both

I did this afternoon actually. They said they stopped making it I'm now trying to find a store or online store that has old stock because I really hate the new ones. They're puny and don't throw far at all, practically useless.

Thanks a lot! I've never seen or heard of that before. If I really can't find the Chuckit I want and mine breaks then I might try this one.

I believe Kong makes one, too, where it fits both regular sized and small tennis balls, you can adjust it.... but come to think of it, haven't seen/noticed it in the pet store lately.

Most people don't want their toy dogs going more than 30 feet from them anyway. Now way she can bring a normal tennis ball back? What if you smacked the small ones with a tennis racket?

And, how exactly, do you wear out a chuckit?
