Carpet Mill Angle?
Boogie-Man Boogie-Man is offline 07-19-2015, 04:19 AM

I posted this in the conditioning threads before I saw this one.

Im building a carpet mill for my Pit. Ive looked all around the forums and online and I still cant find any information regarding the proper angle to set it. I know slat mills are generally flat, and all I can find on comments on angles of carpet mills is when the tell someone their mill is too steep.

Im no carpenter, so making it adjustable, might be out of my wheel house. I was thinking of setting it at an 8% incline, roughly a 4-4.5" lift compared to the rear. Its 60" Long and the PVC pipes are 19"

Also Im thinking of placing the spot to connect the lead to about 3/4 the way back, not in the middle and not at the far end of the mill.

Any direction would be much appreciated.

you about rite with the angle. you can always add something to the rear to decrease it. one thing tho. carpets are hard to pull! they supposed to be! use a good harness not a collar! and keep it to a minimum, ez into it. if the mill is rite the dog shouldn't be on it but about 5 minutes at a time. walk him before to let him dump and after to cool down. there is a reason race horses don't come to a dead stop after a race! hahaha.

get busy!

Boogie-Man is an unknown quantity at this point
So is around 8% incline a good working angle for the dog?
