Chuckit! runs rings around the competition

The brand behind the first ever ball launcher, Chuckit!, is again bringing innovation to the game of fetch with the launch of a new toy for Summer 2018 − the RingChaser.


Inspired by the best-selling Ultra Ball, The RingChaser puts the thrill of the chase at the heart of outdoor play for consumers this Summer, combining the ease and popularity of launchers with more grounded games in one product for the first time.


Featuring an ergonomic handle and robust ring for launching, the RingChaser set has been designed with dogs’ natural instincts in mind. From the unique topspin infused action of the RingChaser to the erratic bounce, zig zag and hop of the UltraRing, this unique combination mimics the movement of game and is guaranteed to engage the ‘chase’ instinct in every dog.


Ensuring owners still benefit from the convenience of easy, hands-free pick up and the far flung throws that Chuckit! launchers are famed for, the RingChaser also features a long handle with easy throwing motion built into the design − so all consumers have to do is flick it for the fast action fetch games that their dogs demand.  


Will Baggaley, Brand Manager for Chuckit!, comments: “We’re excited to be launching the RingChaser toy this year, especially because the ‘grounded roll action’ is a first for Chuckit! and offers consumers something completely unique within the launcher collection.


“While the UltraRing is also adding a brand new dimension to our compatibles range, customers and consumers can rest assured that they will be getting the same robust build and high quality materials that Chuckit! is famed for. The UltraRing is actually inspired by the design of the best-selling Ultra Ball, so we’re sure it will be firm favourite this year for new and existing consumers alike.”


The RingChaser, RRP £14.99, is available from June 2018 along with the UltraRing, RRP £6.99.
