Default Chasing my pup around with a radio controlled car

Anyone else ever do this? I have a radio controlled dune buggy that my pup runs from. It is the most hilarious thing to watch, I did this with Cutter when he was a pup until he got old enough to catch it and tear it up

Videos would be fun If I had an RC car I'd probably do this too.

Not sure scaring your dog with it is a good idea. Be better if your dog chased it like a prey item.

I had a cheap one from Walmart. It literally lasted 5 minutes until he decided the car must die. If you do allow your dog to chase you gotta make sure it's one durable and fast car.

Why would your dog RUNNING FROM something be funny?

We had a remote controlled helicopter and we thought our GSD would love to play with/chase it. Instead he was terrified and ran. And I have to admit, it was hilarious. But we put it away and didn't chase him with it.

At the park I saw someone with a OFF LEASH doberman chasing their dog with an RC car having it get aggressive, that kind of prey drive is dangerous in a crowded park full of kids.

So serious, I think it's cute. As long as he's not whimpering it's all good.

Wait...so if your dog is terrified of something and running from it, it's all good as long as they aren't whimpering?

Could you please explain why?

Do I honestly have to? That's just my opinion, no need to get offensive. If you disagree then you disagree and I will respect that. so cool your jets
