Looks nice, but save yourself some coin.

Buy an e.mill and a flirt pole.

Probably better off looking at an electric mill, second hand from a gym..... Put some ply sides on it... Half the price of a specialist dog mill.... Screenshot_20200623-101535.png.e01cfb85d1e8c6e1d9ae6fbaa3cc5d2b.png

If you are using them for in-depth conditioning the slat mill and the E mill do not condition the dogs the same. The slat mill will teach your dog how to control its heart rate as well as avoid heat walls where as the E Mill won’t do this.

Agreed.

That's why I suggested getting a flit pole (cheap fishing rod) as well.

IMO (if done right) the e mill will put a solid bottom under your dog, the flirt pole is there to increase the heart rate and get the dog used to control his breathing.

A trainer should be careful not to hurt their dog with either.

The flirt pole can help with agility as well. Like you said you do have to be careful to not cause injury to their backs due to the sharp turning and jumping to catch the flirt.

  Many bulldog fanciers will utilize a carpet mill to increase strength of a dog.
