How To Find Treadmills For Dogs
Trying to find treadmills for dogs or canines? This company has the right one no matter how small or large the breed is.
Do you use a treadmill that you have in your basement to exercise your portly pooch? Or did you know that there are a number of companies that make treadmills for large dogs that you can buy direct from the factory?
Jog A Dog, Grand Carpet Mill and Dogtrotter are three of the companies that come up highest in a search for treadmills for dogs. You can use a treadmill designed for humans as long as you keep the speed turned down and make sure that you tether your pet to the treadmill so that they will not end up trying to run off the side.
You should also make sure that you are in the area of the treadmill to watch carefully to make sure that your pet does not become injured.
If you are going to use a treadmill for humans to exercise your dog you should place the treadmill so that the back is against the wall so that if your pet takes a tumble that they will not go shooting of into the middle of the room and create more injury.
The wall will stop your pet before they go too far.
If you want to use that treadmill in your basement you had better have a large or extra large breed dog. The treadmill base needs to be long enough for you pets stride and wide enough to accommodate their bulk.
Small breeds and toy breeds can be easily intimidated by the sound of a human treadmill as well as its size.
Any one of the three companies above makes treadmills specifically for pet use and have incorporated motors that are exceptionally quiet for both your dog’s ears and yours.
Dogtrotter.net offers pet powered treadmills with Abec 7 bearings in the rollers to greatly reduce the rolling friction so that your pet can get their exercise without undue strain.
Guidelines for choosing treadmills for dogs include adding twelve inches to your breed’s normal stride to choose the right treadmill length for your dog.
At Dogtrotter.net you get three models in each breed size to choose from depending on the particular physical attributes your dog exhibits.
For example the Small Breed models are for dogs up to sixty pounds and come with a fifty four inch running surface and two running widths of twelve and fifteen inches.
Prices for the small breed treadmills for dogs start at $1299 and go to $1999 for the 54” x 15” surface.
