Hello, Just wondering if anyone out there has put your dog a a treadmill? Does it work, and how long did it take to train your dog to stay on?. I put my dog on when the weather is bad or if I can see he needs some extra exercise at night. At first he was scared to death of it. But I gradually got him used to it. Although, I have to be standing right by him holding his leash or he will jump off. It would be nice to be able to have him stay on with the leash.
Do not leave him on with a leash and you are not holding it.
The leash can get caught in the belt and choke him.A dog should always be supervised on a treadmill. Mine get on without a leash and stay on but I still supervise them.Mine just like it so its not hard for me.
I have never left him unsupervised with the leash still on him. But If I walk away from him he will jump off the treadmill. So I guess what I am saying I would like him to stay on the treadmill by himself without the leash. He is a small dog so he does not like being by himself.
