Teaching the dogs to walk on a treadmill.

This cold weather has been really hard on dogs. Mine love the snow, but they just cannot take more than a few minutes of cold. And that means, crazy dogs because they are not getting enough exercise. So, I’ve been thinking…. maybe I should try to teach them to walk on the treadmill.

My plan is to start walking on it myself so they get used to the noise and motion. Then slowly use the technique of treats to motivate them trying to walk. This is a great article on how to train them to walk.

I’ll keep you posted on how it goes… wish me luck!
