Doggy Treadmills

Is one of your upcoming new year's resolutions to lose weight--for your dog? And, have you ever wondered about the benefits of a canine treadmill? This may be a good solution for people who are unable to get outside with their dog, unable to walk or run as fast as the dog needs, or for dogs who enjoy lots and lots of exercise, despite however much you may be able to get out together!

Courtesy of Big Apple Pet Supply in New York, here is a video showing dogs using treadmills, and lots of information about their features and safety.

My dogs would hate this. Where are the smells? Where is the news of the neighborhood?

I wish I could fit one of those in the Winnebago for cold, rainy days.

I once tried to get Indy to use the treadmill. He behaved as though I was trying to put him in the mouth of a dragon!

Thank you for sharing this. I have been hoping to work with Lucy on the treadmill, but so far our attempts at it haven't gone so well! Maggie Mae's "hooman" sent me a great list, and I can't wait to get started!
