CRAZY likeness of Hans from a vintage illustration!

Illustration by Edward Herbert Miner (1882-1941) of GSDs at work. The text mentions The Seeing Eye School in Morrostown, NJ.

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.
