Thanks. Glad someone told me. I didn't know :0
Whoa... I feel bad now :/ I didn't mean to. I only did it once and it was maybe for like 1 minute at most. Thanks for the heads up!Very very VERY bad toy to play with!! Dogs can get completely obsessed with chasing lights and shadows after playing with a laser pointer! It does something to their brain - they spend ALL THEIR time looking for lights and shadows to chase, not interested in anything else!
I've read about dogs that would go through a window to chase the headlights of a car. Read about a Rottweiler that spent ALL day trying to climb furniture and trying to climb the wall to get to a chandelier, people come to the forum and post about how their dogs just stare and stare and stare at on point on the ground, waiting for the laser to appear. How they paw and paw and paw the spot where they last saw the laser light until their paws bleed and the floor is wrecked!
There should be major warnings on those things - not a good toy to play with.
Yes, some people use the laser with their dogs, and they are fine - but I wouldn't take the chance. Some dogs are just not the same after only one session.
So, bottom line, not a good idea.
I can only say play at your own risk.Our dog loves the laser, she does not have OCD. If its out, she has fun, if we put it away, she does not seek it or do weird things. But I have heard some dogs get crazy over the laser.
I agree, there are so many other ways to play or interact and the dog can never catch the laser which is frustrating.I can only say play at your own risk.
Why not just toss a ball around? The laser is also a game that they just cannot win...no reward.
