We had to get rid of our treadmill. The dogs kept pulling the laundry off of it before it was dry. :D

I dont have a treadmill, but I know several people that exercise their dogs on one. A lot get them ready for their AD on them.

Sobacca wants nothing to do with the treadmill. We tried to get him to walk on it, but he was having none of that. Haven't tried with Minna yet.
But I exercise both of mine outside, I walk Minna somewhere between 2 and 3.5 miles and I run Sobacca between 2 and 3 miles -- most days. I need the occasional break though since the exercise with them is my "light exercise" for the day.



It's amazing how quickly they grow. Her ears are still huge though, so I guess she still has a ton of growing to do.

I have a treadmill that I walk on every night and a couple of days ago my GSD decided he'd walk on it with me. :wild:

He walked right next to me and then he kept getting closer and closer to me until he had me stumbling on the sides! I got off and he kept walking on it, it was one of the funniest things I have ever seen!

:rofl:

That's hilarious!!

I could see Minna doing something like that. Sobacca wouldn't bother, he hates the treadmill. Although Minna would probably trip me in her attempt to join.

Rogue puts his paw on it as if he's trying to make it stop. :crazy:

Wow You are lucky to have him on it willingly. Good way to burn off some energy on a rainy/snowy day.

I never even thought of putting him on it but now that he likes it it will be great for this winter! :D

I might have to start using it to see if Minna will get on. That'd be a great way to exercise her when I either can't walk her or it's too cold outside or something.
Great ideas!

What a beautiful dog, I wish I had a treadmill to occupy myself and Maya during the winter.
Minna has almost the same coloration as Maya...I'm wondering what color Maya will end up being.
