Default New Hamster Product Idea

Hey all, I've been a small pet (hamster) owner for about a year now and I'm doing market research for an idea I had. If this product were to come to market it would provide a new safe way to interact with your pet. Please answer the questions below openly and honestly. All feedback is highly valued. Thank you so much.

How important is your small pet to you and your family?
How important is exercise in the care and maintenance of your pet?
What do you think about a safe way to get your small pet outdoors on a regular basis?
How would you feel about a safe way to take your small pet for a walk akin to a dog walk?
If not, what alternate way(s) would you’d be interested in taking your small pet outdoors for guided exercise?
What features would you consider important in a product that would allow these functionalities?
How much would you pay for a “small pet walker”?

How important is your small pet to you and your family? EXTREMELY IMPORTANT
How important is exercise in the care and maintenance of your pet? APPROPRIATE EXERCISE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE HEALTH OF A PET
What do you think about a safe way to get your small pet outdoors on a regular basis? NOT APPROPRIATE FOR ANY HAMSTER SPECIES
How would you feel about a safe way to take your small pet for a walk akin to a dog walk? ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR HAMSTERS
If not, what alternate way(s) would you’d be interested in taking your small pet outdoors for guided exercise? HAMSTERS DO NOT NEED OUTDOORS EXERCISE
What features would you consider important in a product that would allow these functionalities? NONE - NOT FOR HAMSTERS
How much would you pay for a “small pet walker”? NOTHING FOR A HAMSTER
MY ANSWERS ARE BASED SOLEY ON HAMSTERS WHICH SHOULD NOT BE PUT ON HARNESSES, LEADS OR STROLLERS NOR TAKING OUTSIDE.

In short: my hamster and his welfare are very important to me and there is no way that I would buy or use any kind of harness, lead or outdoor walking type equipment on my hamster. This idea is ridiculous, not in the interest of hamsters and it worries me that someone would even consider it unless this thread is a wind up.

How important is your small pet to you and your family? Very important.

How important is exercise in the care and maintenance of your pet? Safe, species-specific exercise in hamster's habitat is very important.

What do you think about a safe way to get your small pet outdoors on a regular basis? Not applicable. My hamster does not need to be outside on a regular basis.

How would you feel about a safe way to take your small pet for a walk akin to a dog walk? The words, safe, small pet and dog walk, sound like oxymorons and do not belong in the same sentence together.

If not, what alternate way(s) would you’d be interested in taking your small pet outdoors for guided exercise? Not applicable. My hamster does not need to be outside for guided exercise.

What features would you consider important in a product that would allow these functionalities? Not applicable. See answers above.

How much would you pay for a “small pet walker”? Not applicable. Hamsters do not require small pet walkers.

My hamsters all get exercised in play pens or in their (large) set ups.

I feel that any kind of lead for a hamster would be dangerous as they are fragile creatures.

This nonsense got posted over on hamsterhideout as well and I'm glad to say was similarly torn to pieces.

Good market research. Very clear outcome.
