If you own a dog and you can’t get out to take it for a walk, then you could, perhaps, think about buying a treadmill for it to walk—or run—on! I didn’t buy one for my dog, Bella, I bought it for myself, but she makes great use of it. The problem is though, she has entitlement issues: when I’m using it, the sweetheart just sits staring at me until it’s her turn. At least she can grasp the concept of waiting, but she does makes me feel as if I should hurry up share.
You might find your dog likes it as much as mine does. In this video, it’s one of the first times she went on it, therefore we kept the safety cord clipped onto her collar just in case she came off and hurt herself. Nowadays, she can go on without it because she just jumps off whenever she likes.
Sometimes when I’m writing she comes in, sits on the treadmill and waits for me to turn it on for her. It can get annoying because she has no sense of timing. Too bad if I’m busy…
But anyway, we’d both much rather be out walking here:
Anyway, it won’t be long now.
PS: Cats can do this too. (But don’t tell them, because all cats have entitlement issues (and apparently Aspergers too) and you’ll never get any work done.)
