All you need to know to get the best out of your Dog Treadmill

Human treadmills generally have a shorter track surface since we humans have a shorter gait. This may be fine for small dogs but not for larger ones. Dog specific treadmills will have a running deck that is long enough accommodate a dog’s longest stride and natural gait, giving your dog room to run comfortably. Exercising a dog on a treadmill of improper length will constrict the dog’s movement by shortening its stride, resulting in an unnatural gait and potential joint problems down the road.

Chase pro dog treadmills are wider than human treadmills to give the dog room to “float” back and forth to trot naturally and to encourage the dog to reach and extend. Human treadmills are generally too narrow and will restrict body movement.

Generally we recommend that before you start a treatment program for chronically stressed dogs, do everything you can to lower stress levels in your dog. If that includes walks, then we recommend eliminating them – but only temporarily. Only until the dog can be returned as much as possible back to stable levels.

It should be noted that a key benefit of taking your dog outside for a walk, are the many benefits they get from novelty and being able to interact with their environment with their nose. This is so important and of value to dogs. Research has indicated that dogs tend to favour those that walk them more than anyone else that interacts with them (including those that feed them).
Unless you are physically incapable of walking your dog, the treadmill exercise does not replace the need for regular, daily walks. In fact, it is most effective when it is applied immediately before or after the dog’s regular walk.

The kind of treadmill you choose partly depends on how you want to train them, the size of your dog.
