Our cat and dogs are all very high energy but living in an apartment they do not get the exercise they need all the time and sometimes my husband and I do not have the energy or time to take them to the dog park or for a long run to help eliminate that pent up energy. A friend of mine recommended the Pet Shoppe Laser Toy to me saying that her dog really enjoys chasing it around the yard.
We bought one online and our pets just love it. They chase the little red dot all over the house which is nice for us all because I can play with them while I am doing other things at the same time and they get all their energy out. Sometimes my toddler even joins in and tries to help the pets catch the red dot running across the floor.
This is one of the best ideas ever for a pet toy even though it is a little more costly than I would have expected, it keeps them entertained and they never get bored with it. Best of all I no longer feel guilty about not taking the dogs out running if I am too tired at the end of the day.
