treadmills

Guest FTBBTH

hi all, i was just thinking about getting a treadmill to give the dogs a bit more exercise, i have a couple of questions, 1. in what way do they benefit dogs? and 2. what are the down sides?

 

thanks for any help! :thumbs:

I'm gonna get one as when I'm at work the misses can chuck one of the dogs on it for a bit more exercise throughout the day. Can't see any harm in it...

if you haven,t got the time 2 walk them then great idea

 

dont be so fooking silly, a treadmill wont, dont or should never be used to replace walking, i use a treadmill an a swimtank but my dogs still get walked as they should, treadmills, slatmills, an swimtanks are not an easy way out of walking your dog... too many folk on here give advice on shit they know nowt about :icon_eek:

depends how often it's used. If used to replace free running on uneven ground it's not a good idea. The dogs muscles and tendons aren't extended in the same way and it's balance isn't shifted in the same way. The dog would look tone but could get injuries when worked later imo. I had a treadmill and chucked it.

And you must know everything about exercising dogs and if I couldn't walk my dogs I would rather them go on a treadmill than sat in the dog pen all day
