Grip It and Flip It!

Pros: It's cheap, It works, Dogs love it, A real live genuine "Acme Dog Snot Buster"

Cons: Wished I'd have thought of it

The Bottom Line: For the price it really can't be beat. Keeps dog snot and slobber off of your hands, and launches the ball a long way. Dogs love it too.

This is one of those great--"Why didn't I think of that?" type of toys for you and Fido to have fun with. Lord only knows how many slimey tennis balls we've picked up and chucked for Ol' Rover Boy. After further analysis, it became apparent to me that I enjoyed playing fetch w/my dogs, but I could certainly live w/out the snot and slobber that comes along with the bargain. I also know for a fact that the dogs tend to like the snottiest, stinkiest, smelliest tennis balls, and that's just a fact of life. Try tossing a new one while he's got his eyes on "Ol Stinky" and you'll see what I mean. You'll get that lovely canine question mark that they give w/their eyebrows--kind of like--"C'mon man--throw the good one won'tcha?" Well, Rover doesn't have to be deprived of Olfactory Heaven while playing fetch anymore. Better still--you won't have to say, "Sorry boy---'snot a good idea." Here's why we like it.

For openers the plastic scoop does pick up the ball. Now you can launch it underhanded from the ground if the ball has gotten too slimey, and the scoop's getting a little picky, but the real fun begins w/a good connection that allows an overhand toss. My old hound dog "Gator" didn't care which way it got launced, as long as it was the smelliest ball. My Terrier, "Trammel" preferred the ball get a good grip and it be launched overhand. The ball goes farther that way, and it gives him a chance to outrun the older hound and play keep away for a while.

The model I got was actually part of a collection of Doggie Toys and it came w/3 of the Orange and Blue Tennis Balls. I see now where the balls are sold in 4 packs for $3.80 which is a good cheap replacement price when one considers the multitude of hours dogs spend getting the ball smelly and slimey enough for a good chew, and the other multitude of hours you spend together w/Ol' Fido just playing fetch. Not much to descripe here. A Long plastic handle w/a scoop on the end that holds a tennis ball. You can put the tennis ball in the scoop, or pick it up off of the ground. Either way, once ball is in the scoop you simply launch it either over or under handed by flicking the "Chuckit." The ball travels further than a regular toss thanks to the joys of Leverage. Give Fido a tennis ball and a lever, and he can move the heart of the coldest person.
