OK, but . . .

Here's a good idea as far as it goes: the SnackShotz Treat Launcher fires treats so that your pup can chase them, thus fighting doggy obesity.

I'm sure it's great fun for all involved. Our family Yorkie loved chasing down treats, notwithstanding my mother's fears that if I kept the habit up, he wouldn't want to eat unless his food was thrown at him.

Only thing is . . . can't you just toss treats to your dog without the gun, and burn a few calories yourself? If it's good for the dog, it can't be all that bad for his human.
