I've got one. It's gently sloped, electric, near-silent and a complete fright to my 5 month old Zeus.

How does one train a puppy (60 lbs.) to use the t-mill? I can't even get him to get on it when it's stopped.

Treadmill set slowly, dog on it, treats in hand. Give generously as he walks, and for a few days, don't treat for anything else.

Treats should be very, very small, but extremely tasty. You don't want your dog to choke. :(

It took one session for Teddy to get with the program. A week later, she hops on and doesn't need any treats.
