Gym Treadmill

Folks,

I'm aware this matter was discussed before, however, from 2007 to now, we had a lot of changes on technologies.

Based on that, I would like to ask, if someone bought a human treadmill (gym treadmill) and is using (in a supervised way) to conditioning dogs ?

I have a good friend with a treadmill in his house and got the opportunity to put my dog to play there for couple minutes and he (the dog) liked it.

So, in Resume.: Anyone tried, anyone currently using ?

Please share and advise.

Best Regards,

Dakar

Many of us use human treadmills for conditioning our dogs. They do have to be trained and constantly supervised but the treadmill is the only way my dogs and I survive each other during the Winter when long walks/runs are impossible do to the amount of snow and cold. The treadmill is your best friend with these high energy dogs.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for sharing your field experience. I'm facing similar issues, but its not snow (we dont have it here. lol), however, its raining seasons and its chaotic to me be under the rain.
Not because of the dog, he loves rains, but I'm no longer young and not so healthy as well. lol.

Thanks for info, i will try to buy one by this week.

Many thanks,

Dakar

Hey before you go and spend on an electric treadmill.. Would you consider a treadmill specifically made for a dog? There are electric treadmills built for dogs, manual carpet mills and slatmills available as an option.. Ive used all the above, and even a manual human treadmill for my dags in the past. Just don't leave them alone to run, always keep an eye and or an ear..
Cheers

Hi Jeep,

Thanks. Unfortunately a treadmill for dog is 10x expensive than a human in my
local.

I will not let them alone. Always under my supervision . :-)

Many thanks

Thank you for this, Ames! Any tips for getting a nervous dog on an e-mill? Both of mine are very sensitive to noisy objects and we're having troubles with this. I can get them on it no problem when it's off but they panic once it's turned on. Ours is quite loud and rattles a bit. Even hot dogs aren't doing the trick so far. I don't want to force it.

Gym Treadmill

Anyway to get it moving without being in the room? Not sure where it is but them get comfortable around it not moving and making noise. Then have them in a different room and slowly bring them towards the moving mill. Not sure how you would get it going though because it's manual right? hmmmm that's a hard one. Have you tried getting on it? Not sure how it's built if it supports human sizes lol

My boy hated the hair dryer. So I would put it on the couch or just have it on a chair without it being on and he would go eventually sniff it and not bother with it. Then I put it on the counter and turn it on and we would go from the living room and hang out in the dining room. Then we would go to the kitchen. I would shut it off he would sniff it and Now he can come in the tiny bathroom with me and not care if it's on. We would walk by while it was on. Basically get him used to the noise. Not sure if the same could apply for your mill? I don't know if that could work or not for where it is and how it works so I might have a better idea if you explain it for me?

It's an electric treadmill for humans, so I can definitely try turning it on while they're in the other room. They'll sit on it no problem when it's off, it's just as soon as it's on they won't go near it. No amount of treats or anything have worked so far.

Silicon grease is better than wd40 to lubrificate the treadmill carpet .

My cents .

I can try! It doesn't squeak, it's just kind of noisy while running, hard to explain. They've also come to recognize the three beeps it gives before starting up and they tense up at that point already. I will try peanut butter. Hot dogs are usually the key to everything but even they haven't worked. Sometimes I feel like just sticking them on there and forcing them to ride it out, but I know that would probably just be traumatizing. Lol.

Not a trauma, just an incentive. Lol ;-)
