All dogs need to get adequate exercise , and if you are serious about keeping your dog healthy and happy, then establishing a regular exercise routine for your buddy is the single best gift you can give your pet. Although some breeds are better suited for running than others, teaching your dog to exercise regularly and comfortably on a motorized pet treadmill can be a simple and rewarding solution.
VET CHECK UP: Before beginning this or any physical activity with your dog, ensure he or she is in good health. A trip to your Vet is a great way to start off on the right paw and reduce risk of injury.
If your dog is overweight the right exercise and proper nutrition can make a huge difference. You can use our dog treadmills for weight loss training and if you would like a personal fitness coach to customize a nutritional program just for your dog, click here. Remember, pet obesity is a man-made disease that is 100% reversible! It's never too late to help your best friend.
Sporting and Working Dogs
Treadmills are also widely used for conditioning athletic and working canines, and in veterinary physical rehabilitation. (If you look at this video it will show you some exercises to help target certain muscle groups that mimic real life movement where they combine the use of a dog treadmill with our FitPAWS equipment for a very efficient and effective workout!)
If you have show dogs you know that they require practice and a carefully planned exercise regimen to help them maintain a competitive edge. When travelling to events it can be difficult to find the time to exercise the dogs properly to relieve tension and stress. Each one of our treadmills has a portable space-saving design that is great for the demands of the show dog circuit. They are equipped with programmable distance and time workout controls, variable speed controls, real time LCD data display, remote control, safety cords and an adjustable incline to simulate outdoor terrain and condition the correct muscles. The low-profile training fences provide a natural running platform aimed at providing a positive and enjoyable workout experience for both handlers and their dogs while on the road - day or night, rain or shine, hot or cold, so the dogs will be able to receive a complete workout indoors in a controlled environment. Here they are on the treadmills at the 2013 Westminster Dog Show.
