Default CRAZY likeness of Hans from a vintage illustration!

Wow that is crazy!
Just curious, how long does Hans exercise on the treadmill?
Is the treadmill specifically for dogs or is it a human kind too?

Isn't it?

I saw it and literally said, "WHOA!" out loud. It is as if that dog was reincarnated. I probably could get an even more similar pic if I had help, but I am by myself today and photographed him doing his "get hunky workout"

It is a JogaDog that I got off eBay, brand new, for a ridiculous price.
Got very lucky.
We use it almost every day for 35 minutes at a time, sometimes twice a day, in addition to other things he does. It is a lifesaver if it is dark, cold, or hot outside. And if I am just feeling too darned tired to walk him.

Super cool picture. Which treadmill? Is that the jog a dog or a more affordable one?

Wow, that's pretty awesome, I'll have to look into it! Thanks

Woa! I just clicked the link, I'll have to find a less expensive version

Yeah, it is. I justified it by calculating the per day cost over the life of the dog
Worth it to find a used one.

Yeah, or if you figure if you have to hire a dog walking service, that would add up as well.
Can a dog use a human treadmill or are the proportions off?

Some do have dogs use a human treadmill, but this one is designed for their floating gait and the innards won't get clogged with hair. Plus it is longer, I think.
