Omg, those are SO fun to watch!! How long and how often should an adult standard be on a treadmill? When I get my standard I really want to use this method to help keep him in shape, as the road near the house I'll be living in doesn't have a sidewalk, is narrow, and people like to floor their gas pedals down it, so I can either get a treadmill, or I can drive to a safe dog walking area (I want to do both.)
OMG how weird! All the idiots ruin it for everyone don't they?:rolffleyes:Oh yeah, you might want to make sure it's legal in your area to allow a dog on a treadmill. There's certain places in the USA that it's highly illegal to allow your dog on one because that's one way that criminals beef their dogs up for pit fighting.
It's not even about them being whimpy... they are just plain cruel human beings. Just saw this story on HSUS website today of a dog who's lips was cut off by her dogfighting owner cause she was severely injured in a dogfight.Well they aren't destroying something they are whimping out and letting their dogs do all the work for them.
Yeah =/ its sad really. The treadmills they use for dog fighting are normally home made though, and can be REALLY dangerous for the dogs that they're trying to beef up.
If one is found in your possession like this (which is obviously used for dogs), I believe you're arrested on the spot.
Can you imagine how easy it would be for a nail to get caught in those planks? Or for a foot to fall through the sides?
I undersrood what you where saying but I hate how people think those treadmills are used only by dog fighters ( this is what the humane society thinks it was not directed at you ) . Its just a treadmill with no motor. The dog has to actually want to run to use it so its not like the dogs are being forced to use it as if they where on a motor treadmill.I'm not saying anyone that has a treadmill is a dog fighter, I'm just saying that in some areas you get in trouble for having them and having dogs used for fighting. I should have added that they also look for other evidence.
