Best way is to get them out mooching swimming and some road work.

Welcome mate. Nothing beats getting out with the dog getting it fit and lifting the odd rabbit or two. I used a treadmill once lasted for two weeks and give it away it's boring to watch the dog run on it and even more boring for the dog looking at the same place not going no where.

Cheers for the replies men I was thinking road work is king when building muscle definition and stamina . I was asking about the treadmills as i seen a few people use them online, id imagine the dog would be flat footed from just mill work and no free running, rabbits and road work
