Treadmill training for dogs provides a complete muscle enhancing, toning and fitness regime that not only improves the overall health and vitality of a dog, it helps curb destructive behavioral problems, increases life span and prevents obesity. The treadmill gives your dog a real workout, allows you to control the terrain, and eliminates distractions - and your dog can run regardless of weather.
As a dog owner, you should keep in mind that most pet dogs were specifically bred to get work done. For example, many dogs performed daily tasks alongside humans, such as operating light equipments, herding animals such as sheep, pulling sleds through the snow, and much more.
Dogs are active animals and if they don’t get enough exercise, their energy will build up and burst out. Your dog might be pooping, chewing, and barking at inappropriate times exactly because he needs exercise. Right now! Many dogs are easily bored and they are almost always under exercised.
Besides the obvious benefit of exercise, a dog treadmill can provide excellent information about how your dog walks and jogs. This is perfect for people who want to see how their canines move. For example show dog handlers can study the gait and general movement of their dogs. This allows them to understand and adjust their dogs.
A pet treadmill helps dog owners develop the perfect walk or jogging movements, which can mean the difference between last place and best in show. When your dog moves properly and effectively, you can correct problem movements or reinforce the right ones.
If your dog has never used a treadmill before, begin by first walking your dog over the machine. This helps your dog gain familiarity with the treadmill and will ease any fears the dog may have of the machine. Repeat this process several times by having your dog step up onto the rear of the machine, walk your dog across the machine, then allow your dog to step down off the front of the machine. After two or three repetitions of walking your dog across the machine, your dog will be ready to go. Another way is by feeding your dog over the machine, this will help him feel more comfortable over it.
Every dog in every breed is different so it’s hard to specify an age to start using a treadmill. Ideally, you should set expectations for your dog while it is still a puppy that will continue throughout its life. If your puppy is developing incorrectly and muscle build up is not happening evenly then the treadmill will correct this. It is very important to only start with small increments of time on the treadmill with puppies as they require very short amounts of exercise, eg 1- 5 minutes maximum daily.
