(Note to pet owners: this is NOT a tennis ball "cannon" and will NOT launch the ball across your yard. At maximum tension, it will launch the ball about 3 feet.)
The Practishot is an affordable "starter" box for any individual that wants to introduce this fun sport to their dogs. Our design features a slightly steeper angle on the front launch peddle, making a later transition to the larger, more upright "competition" team boxes easier for your dog. The launch peddle is also covered with extra-thick, sponge-vinyl matting, to increase traction, while helping to cushion the impact on your dog's feet and shoulders. Another unique feature is our plastic knob on the outside back of the box, which allows you to quickly adjust the spring tension on the launch arm, changing the force at which the ball will be thrown. Made from a special, warp-resistant particle board, we offer this box either painted royal blue, or unpainted. If you order unpainted, you should protect the wood by either painting the box or using some sort of protective coating such as polyurethane. Our painted box has sand added to the paint on the bottom of the box and on the area where the loader stands, to help prevent sliding of the box when hit by the dogs.
