Do you love the idea of a ball launcher toy, but are looking for something sustainable and eco-friendly? If so, check out the Wood Chuck ball launcher, made with bamboo and recycled cork scraps. A blurb from a secret shopper reads:
This is hands-down, the best performing, best constructed dog ball tosser we’ve ever tested and knowing that we’re helping protect Mother Earth by using a product made from recycled cork scraps and that a portion of our money is going to organizations who raise, train and place service dogs, makes the Wood Chuck even sweeter!
With a sleek handle and four-prong ball holder, the Wood Chuck can be used with standard sized balls, but also has the option of being used with the durable Orbee-Tuff RecycleBALL. Another perk is that two percent of the proceeds made will be donated to the training of service dogs for people in need! Planet Dog makes the RecycleBALL based on the colors of scrap material that are available. The most common colors are purple, black, cream, and green. They are all made in the USA. The purchase of the Wood Chuck ball launcher comes with one RecycleBALL.
The Wood Chuck is $24.95 from Planet Dog, but available at other venues as well. Orbee-Tuff RecycleBall price points vary based on how many are purchased and what type (glow-in-the-dark and whistle balls are available) they are. To see how the Wood Chuck works, check out this tutorial!
