"Chuckit!" tool

It used to be easy to toss a ball pretty impressive distances.  In the “use it or …” category, I seem to have lost it.  The “Chuckit!” dog tool is great. 

This is how Henry makes it work:
  1. Human places the ball in the cup part of the springy plastic arm.
  2. Human flings the ball – it does go quite a ways. 
  3. Henry chases the ball – mouths it – plays with it a bit – leaves it and races back to Human. 
  4. Then Human retrieves the ball and we go back to step #1. 
My puppy is so smart! He learned that trick in no time at all. He will still retrieve anything that will not fit in the nifty tool.


  1. I don't know how many times I pulled muscles before we got our first chuck-it. I haven't had a dog that would bring anything back since Bud & Jack. Harley would run like the wind after and just keep going and Hunter gets winded if he tries to run and can't see that far anyhow.

  2. I always knew he was really smart.
