Murphy’s Ready to Tread

1MurphyDogTread_DogTreadmill

Have you thought of helping your dog Get Fit by using a Dog Treadmill?

 Dogs Love to Tread

Murphy comes to workout at the Canine Gym frequently and has decided the DogTread treadmill is quite fun.

Convenience

Dog treadmills provide a consistent exercise platform for your dogs despite rain, snow, wind or heat outdoors. Think of the convenience. You can set up the DogTread treadmill right next to your human treadmill and work out together. If space is an issue, DogTread stands up easily against a wall, out of the way in between workouts.

Regular walking or trotting on the dog treadmill helps your canine companion increase their strength, improve their cardiovascular system and get rid of some of that canine energy that may have otherwise been targeted to chew up your slippers or get into the trash.

 Low Impact

Treadmill trotting provides a lower impact surface than running outside on concrete or even asphalt. Repetitive concussive gaiting on these hard surfaces can aggravate joint conditions in our dogs. DogTread workouts are great for our senior dogs.

 Variety

The DogTread treadmill is manufactured with the capability of working the dog on an incline. After getting used to treadmill workouts, your dog will be able to progress to the next level. Just drop the rear support, let your dog walk on and start working out. Now your dog faces a harder challenge due to the incline, improving strength in those rear legs.
