This dude is so cool.
It's insane the amount of people who still use the ""5mw"" rated green,red and blue ebay cheapies for their petsHi Norma
Cats, Dogs and any animal do no go well with lasers in my opinion. I would never subject any animal to a laser beam.
I agree with a lot of this. Lasers to play with dogs can make them neurotic, but I will also say my old dog (RIP Moxie) did develop his own neuroticism with toys and balls. When he played fetch and you took the ball from him, his jaw would twitch like mad! Some dogs will just be neurotic, but it might be possible that even stopping the laser play will just transfer neuroticism to some other object or activity.'
'If you play with a cat with such a laser, it will go crazy) '
not too much.
They become more obsessed (crazy) than cats ,,,BUT both are a lazy way to exercise your pets.
AND can be very bad aside from any eye injury.
Think about it... your pet keeps trying to catch the dot--but that never happens. Has to be a bad thing at some point.. Famed expert Caesar Milan is firm on this-- lasers and pets is a terrible combo -bordering on pet abuse.
AND you get very little exercise yourself!!
Chasing a ball (NOT tennis BTW) and finding/catching is wonderful for your dog. And with little training the ball will be at your feet or in your hand-- and your dog is ready to do it over and over with hardly any obsession.
Chasing something that is impossible to catch is IMHO very cruel..
I have had friends who were/are greyhound trainers and those dogs are highly obsessed .. otherwise they are the best cared-for dogs anywhere . AND although they never catch the white rabbit when at 'work' ... they do get great exercise where the do get to catch . (but not a live rabbit).
However greyhounds eventually lose the obsession once becoming pets.. they are great dogs and if more would get adopted --thousands would NOT be put down.. A common description of pet greyhound is 'couch potatoes'
Yeah it is SOP to put a greyhound to sleep for being too slow.
They live 90% of the time in small stacked kennels.
My opinion is based upon have my many friends who own pet greyhounds and dog trainers I have known personally.
Lots to read on this IF you do a search..
Hope this helps (Mainly the dogs.. the owners.. not so much.)
