Pet Exercise Idea: Treadmill Workout for Dogs

Treadmill Workout for Dogs

If your dog is anything like most, they probably love to run and play. But when the weather isn’t cooperating or you’re short on time, a treadmill workout for dogs is the perfect solution.

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Start slowly, especially if your dog isn’t used to running on a treadmill. A good rule of thumb is to start at a speed of about 1 mile per hour for every 10 pounds of body weight. So, if your dog weighs 50 pounds, start at 5 miles per hour.
  • Increase the speed gradually. Once your dog is comfortable walking or running on the treadmill, you can start to increase the speed in small increments.
  • Use a harness. A harness will help to keep your dog safe and secure on the treadmill.
  • Make it fun! Add some toys or treats to the equation to help keep your dog motivated.

With a little patience and effort, you can help your dog get in shape with a treadmill workout! For more pet fitness tips, check out our PetFitness blog!
