Default Chuckit!

Now, I am thinking about getting one of these. I'm not sure, though because I don't know if it'll fit the size ball that Ella plays with.

Anyway, which version should I get? The original Chuckit, Ultra Chuckit, or...one of the various copy-cat chuckits?

Has anyone tried a rip-off chuckit before?

I won a chuck it at the Rottweiler specailty, and honestly, Im not impressed. Its sitting in my closet as we speak. Its much more of a hassel to load the ball, ect than it is just to throw the ball for the dog lol

I've used them. Never for my own dogs seeing as my guys don't have any ball drive. At the dog park I tend to take over for owners who aren't too thrilled about their ball crazed dogs. I love them. The ball goes much farther. Tires the dogs out quicker.

However if you have a baseball bat kicking around the house those work even better.

Leo chases balls if I throw them, but won't bring them back (how the heck do you teach a dog to fetch, anyway?). So throwing it farther would just mean I have farther to go to get the ball after he's chased it, picked it up, played with it, and dropped it way out there.

I love that part of the game. I'm always out there running with the dogs. I'm a big nerd that way though. They look to be having so much fun I have to get in on the action.

We love our chuckit. I can get the ball high enough for a good bounce. CeCe brings the ball back and drops it at my feet for a cookie. I don't have to bend over to get the ball and I never have to handle a goober-ball.

I absolutely love the Chuckit - it only really fits tennis balls though. Ilsa is such a big fan of the Chuckit, that she'll go for the STICK even if there's no ball in it.... observe:
