Well i don't feel the need to lay out my life in chronological order just to satisfy anyone curiosity about my private life, And calling the timeline of my private life into question isn't going to ever change that......

Because some things don't add up, I think some members don't believe you are the real Accu, truth or consequences?
What are you saying ? like someone hacked my account ?


Well how's this for ID, I just took a picture of part of my Accutron watch collection and to prove it's not just some picture lifted from somewhere else i've added a little a little something extra !


I believe this proves i'm the real Accutronitis don't you think ?



BTW i'm pointing at one of my fav watches. lol

Because I took the batteries out of most of them and set their time to what Bulova did in most of their ads of the 60's, That setting lets you see everything on the dial and yet give you a good view of the hands....

The two 18kt solid gold watches I set to 12 noon....

ROFL. :D

Also be aware it is not very healthy for dog's psychics - they chase something they will never catch (no prey reward) and they might start to chase light (for example sun coming through window or tree branches). For occasional play it is ok, but vast majority should be common dog toys.

In comparsion our cat does not care about lasers. He is just watching it, but not with that hunter's look.
Exactly--be mindful that your entertainment activity of tormenting your dog with a laser does not become outright animal abuse. Putting the animal at risk of occular damage and/or making him nuts chasing a laser repeatedly is not a good idea. There are many healthier things you can do with your dog.

My concern was for the dog as well. I know you are careful, but that's why they call them accidents.
Exactly.

Exactly.
Thank you, as i'm a bit guilty of getting this thread off topic;)
When my cat started crying or whining and scrambling to get at every reflection on the walls whether it was from my phone, remote, etc. or even hearing the click of cutting my finger nails for even months after stopping play with a laser I knew its not a toy for her..but my neighbors cat couldn't care less about one.
Radim, never thought of the catching the "reward" part that dogs love, well said as the different psych of cat or dog never crossed my mind. Dog's do love to show you they they caught the ball or stick and could see one risking heat exhaustion.
1000's of posts on this subject i'm guessing and all has been covered but i'm sticking with no laser play with any pet. The pets that like them go to the overboard extreme is at least what I have seen or people using way to over spec ebay cheapie's.
Yup, old school toys like its always been:)

I give her some treats afterwards. Shes a golden retriever, her breed exists as hunting dogs, they chase/retrieve and are given a reward. I'm quite sure its not torture or animal abuse in any manner. And if you take a look at my signature, my green ebay pen barely makes 40 mW, hardly a super hazardous eye destroyer.

My moms other dog was much smarter and figured out right away where the dot was coming from and when I shot it on the floor in front of him he would turn and look at me every time as if to say "I know your doing it" ! lol

Yeah, some dogs figure it out, some dogs don't even like chasing and retrieving real objects.

This is not the point though, dogs that voluntarily keep returning a ball you throw to you, with you just sitting in a lawn chair having a beer, are not being abused. Same goes for ones that chase laser pointers up and down the lawn as long as they don't suffer any eye damage.

The dog has the option not to do anything, it could think fsck you and your ball/dot/stick and not retrieve it. Provided you never hurt the dog for not doing so, it is a free choice.

Some people walk their dogs rding on bicycles. People cry animal abuse, but many dogs will happily trot along without a leash, the problem more often is that city regulations require dogs to be leashed. Then again as long as you're not dragging the dog along there is little wrong with it.

Not all dogs enjoy this sort of thing, plenty of them don't give a rats ass when you throw a ball, and will not retrieve it for you. Then again if you have a dog that was bred to be a retriever (in the broad sense) it'll probably enjoy running after balls, laser dots, sticks and what not - why else would they do it?

That's where mushing leash can be used:

Image source: Mountain Scooters & mushing equipment - GRAVITY SCOOTERS Mountain scooters and mushing equipment.

Not only sled, but scooters or bikes are used. You can use your dog's power or not and just keep the leash to meet the regulation. There is special flexible "stick" to keep the leash out of front wheel when loose and also the leash is somehow flexible not to cause shocks to you or dog. Therefore they are not common leashes, but designed specially for mushing purposes.

Much better than be limited and some dogs even enjoy pulling some weight, for some it is even necessary to keep them in good shape as they have a lot of energy to be spend and people usually go to work and dogs wait for them home large part of a day (even own garden might not be sufficient for some breeds). The key point is to make sure dog is trained and it is not started too early, when there are muscles, but bones are not fully developed - in later stages it might cause serious joint problems known to be typical for breeds like german sheperd.
