But it is so much more than just another dog ball thrower. After all, there are plenty of those out there. We’ve completely redesigned and reimagined it from the ground up, consigning all the bad bits to the pages of history. Because, frankly, that's where they belong.
Kompact9 is a dog ball thrower that's been engineered to work perfectly for both you and your dog
Reimagined for Design
Designed, built and tested by engineers to be the most compact dog ball thrower on the market.
Reimagined for the Environment
Kompact9 is leading the way in utilising recycled plastics for ball throwers. From the unit itself, to the hygiene cover, through to the packaging it comes in, Kompact9 is sustainably sourced and fully recyclable.
Reimagined for Comfort
From the design of the grip, to the bag that keeps it (and you) clean, the Kompact9 dog ball thrower has been built to provide the best user experience.
Don't just take our word for it...
Our dog ball launcher has already received some great feedback from customers.
“I have never been able to throw a ball. When I got Barney last year I thought I ought to get a ball thrower and at least try. I tried and tried, without success, until this one came on the market and I can throw this with ease. It’s amazing and I love the cover – no more dog slobber in my pocket!”
"My partner loves dogs but I don’t. Your dog thrower means that I can entertain my partners dog and get credit for being dedicated."
"Our family is constantly time starved. My husband and I both work full time, but the kids wanted a dog and well... Anyhow, the dog gets lots of exercise with this ball thrower and I can pop it into my fanny bag or cross over purse and exercise him at any time."
"I got this ball thrower as a prototype from a friend after I had broken my ankle walking the dog. It saved mine and the dog’s sanity."
"I own my own bike business and take the dog to work. Although it’s my business I don’t want my staff to think that I am disappearing to play/walk the dog. This ball thrower is so compact I can put it in my pocket and walk out! the door with the dog. I then throw the ball, and I’m sure, although you don’t advertise it, that it throws further than most. We have a 15-minute workout and are back to work invigorated."
"Thorin and Odin are the centre of our family. The down side to a puppy and a 4-year-old dog is that they have different exercise needs. I can’t be out all day so, a short walk and some park-based dog throwing is perfect. Your thrower fits in my pocket and works amazing well given how small it is. I hope you invent some other radically different dog toys."
Meet the Pups
To say we love dogs would be an understatement akin to saying, well, dogs love balls. We have two dogs who were a key part of our desire to reinvent the ball thrower and, of course, our testing process.
And here's Rio
Rio, a cockerpoo, was our original inspiration, addicted as he is, to playing fetch. Cockapoos are a blend of all the best qualities of Cocker Spaniels and Poodles, combining the outgoing personality of the Cocker Spaniel with the low-shedding qualities of the Poodle. Like most cockapoos, his temperament is happy and fun loving, and he loves attention. But don't we all?
About the designer
Kompact9 has been designed by Alex Richardson, who recently completed his masters in aerospace engineering. Yes, he is a real-life rocket scientist. Alex and his family have always had dogs but have always been frustrated by the large and cumbersome dog ball throwers currently on the market. So, he set about redesigning the dog ball thrower, with user experience very much at the heart of his approach.
