Top 5 Dog Ball Launchers under $10

Chuckit! Pro Launchers The most obvious reason why you could get a ball launcher is for your comfort.  Honestly. A ball launcher makes throwing balls for your dog’s exercise much easier on your arm and hands.

And yes, ball launchers are great for your dog, exactly because of that.  Because it is more fun for you.  They just love to do something with you, and bringing balls back is one of their favorite exercises.  This is the second advantage of ball launchers.  Your dog will get more exercise and will therefore be healthy and happy.

Updated 2017: new products added!

Dog ball launchers should facilitate your throwing move. Many of the available models are specifically said to be lightweight and easy to hold. Nevertheless it will be up to you to find out if the chosen model is perfect for you.

Since the following models are extremely affordable it is quite easy to just get one model and try it out and replace it if it doesn’t fit your requirements.

Also take into consideration how far you want to throw the ball for your dog. Do you want to use the ball launcher mostly in your backyard for smaller distances or in the park for far distance? Chuckit’s Sport launcher states that you’ll throw the ball with a little practice as far as 100 ft. to 140 ft.

Some brands include a ball with their ball launchers that work the best with that particular launcher. You might though find yourself just wanting to use a simple tennis ball. Most of the ball launchers work perfectly with a tennis ball or similar sized ball.

I’ve been using the Pocket Chuckit for about a week now and it’s awesome.  It works well in my backyard and I’ve actually taken it to the dog park once.  It launches the ball reasonably far.

The dog gets more throws out of us, and we really like not having to touch the ball.  The included ball is nice, but I’m happy the toy is designed to use any tennis ball.

Until you have one, you won’t know much you needed it.  No more slobbery, disgusting balls, and I can throw them much farther.

I can throw the ball a lot farther and my arm and wrist do not hurt.  The chuck it blue ball fits in this holder if you pick it up gently.

We have used this launcher almost every day once or twice a day for the last two or so months and there is no sign of the retractable part breaking – it is very solid.

This works wonderfully for launching it across the dog park. It works well with the Kong medium sized Squeakie Ball that my dog prefers and dutifully returns for a relaunch.

Our dog is quite the sprinter and loves this thing. Would definitely recommend the 25-length launcher to get good distance, and the Pro handle has a nice grip that allows for comfortable throwing.

My Labrador loves to play ball. These chuck it’s are my best friends! Quickly became my favorite length!

I have a permanently injured shoulder and thanks to this little beauty, my dog can still run and chase a ball.

My dog loves for me to use this. Even goes and finds it and whines until I come get it to throw. So far its held up.

Love this ball Chucker! My dog loves it more. Much easier to throw then the long handled ones.

Customer reviews

We visit a huge dog park frequently, and this lets me throw a ball far enough that she really gets to run full throttle! I could never throw it far enough on my own to keep her interested more than one or two times before getting the launcher. Now, we can spend an hour at the park playing with it. I have one super tired dog when we go home.

All of our neighbors with large dogs have this product. I have a 6 month old Golden Retriever and I was able to run him quickly since I was able to throw so much further.

This is the best way to play with my dog. She absolutely loves it when we get out the launcher. Even if you have a regular or small yard, you can still control how far you throw it. Plus, you would have it on hand for the dog park days – it can throw far!
