Grand Carpet Mills got back with me. The actual running surface on that one is about 63.5 inches. Definitely too short for a long GSD.

Got the treadmill the other day and finally just put it together. Took about 30 minutes, but half of that was spent unwrapping everything... pretty easy. It's definitely long enough for a GSD and seems to do the job. Not too loud or anything. Sounds and works like any treadmill I've heard or seen.

I bought the pads that the company sells since it's on a hard surface. You'll notice them in the front and back legs of the treadmill. If it's on carpet it's probably not needed, but it works well with the hard laminate floor to reduce noise. I only ran her on there for about 10 minutes just to give it a shot and it runs smooth. Let me know if you guys have any questions about it or anything.

For $450 shipped... seems like a pretty good deal so far.

How does the build quality seem? Looks good.

Built like any $1000+ human treadmill that I've ever seen. I'm going to register it on their website. I'm pretty sure they give you a year warranty in case anything breaks.

I'd prefer if it was a bit wider, but it's adequate. I'm used to putting her on a human treadmill and it's probably a good 3-4 inches wider, but humans are typically wider than dogs, so this should be fine for her.

It sits on an incline that you can manually adjust. The minimum level seems plenty, but you can always make it steeper if you want. Belts feels like a human treadmill belt and you can adjust the tension if needed.

I'll make a video of her running on it when I get a chance, so you can actually see it with a dog running on it. She was a little confused at first since it's new to her even though she's been running on these things for basically her whole life. It will probably take a couple times to get fully used to it.

This should give you an idea of exactly how long it is. For some reason she wants to go all the way in the front and I'll train her to run more in the middle, but you get the idea of exactly how much space she has on this thing for a nice full stride once she's a little more centered.

The picture quality is horrible. I'm taking it on my phone and she's in motion, so it's a little blurry.

Did it not come with a chest bar to stop the dog from going too far?

It looks nice!


Yeah, the prices for pre-made mills are pretty ridiculous. Whenever I get one, it'll be homemade. Like this one:

But with rails or sides for safety.
