So... we got a treadmill. It's a carpet mill, and it took FOREVER to put together because the instructions are anything but helpful, but that's a funny story for another day.
Anyway... Sepp will get on it and... sit. For as long as it takes. He won't walk on it and no amount of treats makes him get up... he's tried and he thinks it's not for him.
We're a work in progress.
Faust, on the other hand, is a maniac on that thing.
He went right from jumping on it for the first time to full-speed running, and he seems to enjoy it immensely... especially when there are visions of liver treats "dancing in his head".
The problem is that he chokes and gags himself because he's in such a hurry to get... nowhere, really.
There is a chain on the top of that contraption so you can leash your dog to it, and a collar is not the best idea for a dog like Faust. He pulls/runs like crazy, which results in lots of hacking and coughing.
A. What type of harness would be suited for a treadmill?
B. How do we master "walking" at a leisurely pace?
