Why do you want to do this to him?
i would like to do it for the reason that beth has posted. when the dog is completely healed i would also like to make it part of his regular exercise routine.
the dog did not like the e mill in the beginning he would salivate and get a little "freaked out" with patience and time he now jumps on the mill willingly.... would he rather go for a hand walk ... YES, but when it is poring rain out or below freezing that is not something i am going to do and the dog needs exercised.
the dog also had issues with going up or down open stairs when he was younger. thats something that bothered me so i also fixed that. do i think its cruel... no not in the manner i did it.
do you think i plan on just throwing the dog in the tank having never been in water before and let him figure it out?
