It is the one thing he never gets bored of, he can chase it for hours. My cousin also had a pitbull that loved lasers as well, so I'm wondering if its just a pitbull thing.
Nope, not just a pit bull thing. We have two dogs that get a laser pointer as their reward in flyball...a standard poodle and a border terrier. Score goes crazy over them, so does my female Aussie. I don't tend to use them for my gang (4 Aussies and Score) because Aussies have a tendency to get obsessed with things like this...
I know of a couple of herding dogs that love laser pointers so much they'll stare at the drawer that the pointer is kept...for hours on end.
Herding dogs are nuts.
John uses the laser pointer with Sawyer to direct him for retrieves (Sawyer is his Service Dog)...Sawyer pays attention to it, but doesn't want to play with it...so it works well.
