Treadmills for dogs?

Since people seem interested in the new pup, I will keep posting about her :)

I think I have mentioned that she has a ton of energy! When she is in the mood, she races around the yard like a wild thing and can fetch a ball faster than any dog I've ever seen. She is practically on top of the ball before it hits the ground. She's the kind of dog people put on treadmills! Turn it on and let her go!

I used to think this was a joke, but I've heard people really do this. Seems like you'd want to take some serious safety precautions - no leash, start slowly, watch for signs of fatigue...OK, I had to search. Interested? Check out "treadmills for dogs" on your favorite search engine - tons of results. This is a real way people exercise their dogs. How about that!

Now that is the first time I have ever heard of a treadmill for dogs - outside of the Jetsons of course!!!
