I recently got tired of throwing away chewed up basketballs, soccer balls and footballs destroyed by my dogs. So I picked up a Chuckit Kick Fetch Toy Ball last weekend for my two Labradors and they have loved it.
I started looking for alternative ways to play fetch (anything but a tennis ball) and the unique design caught my eye.
What Makes the Chuckit Kick Fetch so Great?
It features deep ridges that allow dogs to pick up the toy more easily compared to traditional balls. The Chuckit Kick Fetch is a great replacement for any ball that can be easily punctured with your dog’s teeth.
As a result, that poor soccer ball will only last so long.
Sure it can be fun to kick around a soccer ball while your dog chases after it, but we both know it won’t last. Once a dog retrieves a ball he/she will normally chew on it a little before returning the ball to you.
Chuckit Kick Fetch Features:
- The Chuckit Kick Fetch has a puncture resistant foam core
- The large size I purchased is similar in size to a soccer ball
- Floats, so your dog can fetch in the water
- The Chuckit Kick Fetch measures 7 ½ inches in diameter
- The ball fetures natural high-bounce rubber
- High-visibility orange color makes it easy to track in large open spaces or in water
- The material is made from durable canvas, rubber and EVA foam construction
I highly recommend the Chuckit Kick Fetch. For some reason my dogs were never big on chasing tennis balls – which is why I bought this toy in the first place.
And it was a smart move, because they absolutely love this toy. One of my labs even likes to roll it around with her nose and then try to pick it up!
It’s a great toy to have around the house and it’s a fun replacement to a game of fetch with a traditional tennis ball.
What I really like about this product is the unique design and material. When playing with a tennis ball, the outside fabric layer can get disgusting pretty fast.
And no one wants to pick up a wet and slobbery tennis ball. This can be avoided with the Chuckit Kick Fetch.
The durable canvas material (sort of feels like plastic) won’t get wet and nasty like a tennis ball.
The only issue if at all would be the puncture resistant foam core. I haven’t had any issues so far, but this seems to be the only downside after reading through some of the negative reviews on Amazon.
If your dog has super sharp teeth and normally destroys “durable” toys I would imagine it can be punctured.
Either way for the price I think it’s worth it. If you are still unsure, always keep an eye on your dog when using any type of new toy. Check out the reviews on Amazon for more information.
