Are Any Laser Pointer Games Safe for Dogs?

The safest way to play with laser pointers is to avoid them altogether. A laser that shoots into a dog’s eyes can cause blindness. Because the dog jumps into the beam, it can be difficult to avoid aiming it at the eyes. Additionally, fragile household items can be broken if you shine the laser at or near them.

If you must use a laser beam to play with your dog, tuck treats in hidden spots around the room and use the light to lead the dog to these areas until they discover all of their tasty rewards. You can also shine the beam at a spot on or near your body. When your dog reaches the light, turn it off and reward them with a treat. You should also give your dog some kind of verbal indication when you’re finished with the game to put their mind at ease.
