Karma is used to walking everyday in the evening. Lately I have been having to work later than usual. So im considering buying a dog treadmill, but not for awhile since they are a bit pricey. will a regular treadmill be ok to run her on until i purchase a dog treadmill or should i avoid the regular tread and wait for the dog tread. i dont want to put her on a regular one if it will be bad for her.
open to all suggestions and opinions.

A regular treadmill will be just fine if you can get her to walk on it.

Roxy loves it but Tyson hates it. I think its all how you introduce it to the dogs. so take alot of time just letting him/her sniff it out and use treats or whatever coaxing method you use to just get the dog to stand on it (OFF) a few time then start in really slow. I used a leash with her and stood next to her like if we were on a walk and found the pace she liked the most.

but most important thing is to take your time with dog getting used to treadmill
