    Laser pointers

    I've found that a simple laser pointer is a great way to exercise dogs and cats. They go crazy trying to catch up to the little red dot on the floor, or in the backyard at night. Just be sure you don't shine it directly in their eyes, as blindness may occur.

    My Basset Hound Daisy does that too. It's a great way to make her come inside at night. Just have her follow The poor thing could chase it for hours. She just doesn't understand!

    Isn't that a little mean? What do they do when they relaise that it isn't a solid thingy? Just stop cos they're tired?

    Actually I don't think P.J. cares if it is solid or not, he just likes to try to keep up with it while he is chasing it. Sometimes if he has been playing a while he slows down cause he is really tired so we just show him that we are putting it up and he goes and lays down or something.

    Daisy thinks of it as a game. She doesn't think we are being mean at all. She just loves to play chase, and this little red "thing" never tires of playing with her. She loves it!

    Hmmmm.... But I tried that with my friend's dog at her b'dae party(for the dog!) and the dog, Brownie quickly figured out that I was moving the 'thingy' and she actually jumped up and took it from my hand! i wonder what happened in that mind of hers...

    Eudora, I think I know what you meant by your first comment. This toy should not be used by young children who don't know the
    'limits' of the particular animals.My dog(in good health) has a high prey drive and would
    chase it till he dropped.(Not a good thing for him)Think it's ok for cats as they will
    stop when they figure it out.

    I use a laser pointer to exercise Bo, my Manx cat. She loves it, and when she's tired of playing, she just quits and starts grooming herself. I don't shine the thing in her eyes, and it seems to do her no harm.
