Chuck-It Ball Warning

BEWARE- Jasper choked on a medium sized chuck-it ball today. We have always used this size with no issues- but today he must have caught it weird and the ball went straight down his throat.

It was so far in I couldn’t see it. I only knew it was in his throat because he was hunched over choking. Thankfully as I was running to him he coughed it out and was fine. (and still wanted to play, ding dong)

Terrifying experience.

I have been using these for years. I do believe it was a fluke thing. But make sure you always have 100% of your attention on your dog during even the most routine play time. I would have stuck my arm alll the way down his throat if I had to.

I like the chuck-it with the heavy duty fabric strap on it. Using the strap to throw really sends the ball a good distance. Thank Heavens he was able to cough that ball out.

I had the large chuck it ball. Lasted 6 months. I thought was the best thing in the world! Bought a new one when it got beat up. Lasted 1 day!

I tried this one before and I can’t get any distance when I throw it. Goes like ten feet haha

Eek! So far its working for us. Their “ultimate” balls last quite a long time for me thankfully. I had a medium ball last a full year of fetch, 3-5 days a week. Crazy

True, the ball with the strap doesn't go as far. And it does do a number on my shoulder. 😆. The chuck-it thrower really flings that ball way out. And doesn't stress your shoulder out. I'm on a hill, so I try to look for square toys 😂

I had no clue the medium size would be bad. I look at it in his mouth and it looked just fine. In fact my home screen on my phone is of him holding his ball.

I wonder if their XL Ultra ball will work. Its 3.5” round? I tried the ones with ropes but they don’t launch well and I can’t throw for crap.

Any suggestions for someone who can’t throw but needs the ball to go far? With a bigger ball than what you see in the photo.

Glad he was okay we use large and they are safer in my opinion the ball chuck it calls medium to me are more like small sized.
