Using eco-friendly dog products is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and your pet’s carbon pawprint at the same time. All natural dog products aren’t on the shelves of every pet store yet, but they are gaining in popularity, and why not? You can still have fun with your pet, but you’re using a product that doesn’t hurt the environment – that sounds like a win-win to me!
The Wood Chuck ball launcher from Planet Dog comes with a Recycle Ball. It is made with sustainable bamboo and recycled cork scraps. The bamboo core gives it the strength to provide maximum chuck-ability and the ergonomic cork handle adds comfort and a great grip for throwing long distances. The four-pronged claw on the end of the ball launcher couples perfectly with Planet Dog’s Orbee-Tuff line of products.
It will work with any ball that is 2.5 inches in diameter, which includes most tennis balls. It does come with one 2.5-inch Orbee-Tuff recycle ball, and you can purchase additional balls as well if you’d like to stick with eco-friendly products. As you can see from the video, the included Orbee-Tuff ball works well if you don’t lodge it all the way into the prongs. Tennis balls may work better, but you’ll have to test that theory for yourself.
The Orbee-Tuff balls also have a hole for adding treats. When you don’t have time for a game of fetch, you can stuff a few treats into the ball and use it as a treat dispenser. This product is essentially a 2-for-1 deal! The ball may not hold up to aggressive chewers, but Planet Dog does offer a 100% guarantee on all their products, even if they are chewed or destroyed. If your Fido ruins the ball at any time you can return it for a replacement.
I love the versatility of this product. You get a fetch toy, a ball launcher and a treat dispensing chew toy without having to buy multiple items. It’s also great that it’s eco-friendly! If that isn’t enough to entice you to try this product, Planet Dog also donates 2 percent of every purchase to The Planet Dog Foundation, an organization that funds and supports all dogs that work to enhance and save human lives. For about $25 you’ll get three dog toys, help protect the environment and give back to charity. That’s a great deal!
