Those treadmills are NICE. :shock:


I have no idea if they are in business, ours was confiscated from a fighting ring bust, then when not needed as evidence was headed for the dumpster (yes, literally.) We saved it from the landfill, that is not a company that I would give my money to. But yes, it is very well made.

I've always just used a regular nylon harness (like the one Michelle posted a photo of). Love the video, Faust looks so pleased with himself :D

As far as I know, no

I spent some time looking for one last year and the few I did find were not from people I was interested in supporting. That isn't to say there aren't reputable people out there making them; I just couldn't find any. Those mills are VERY expensive

I'll have to try to dig them up but I'm almost positive they have plans online. I know a few people who have made them.

Oh... :doh: :neutral:
That never even occured to me. "Fighting paraphanelia" wasn't the first thing that popped in my head when I was thinking of ways to give my guys a little more exercise. :oops:

That video is too much! I love me some Faust!! He looks sooooo happy!! :D Go figure, he's one step ahead of you with it, he def keeps you on your toes. I think Celena would love one of those things and I'm gonna have Joe build if we can find the plans.

I'm in the process of ordering one for Soleil right now. The prices are very reasonable, and Missy Villines is great to deal with.

Faust is such a goober. How do you live with all of the cuteness in your house? Both of your dogs are so handsome.

Faust is making great progress. He's on the treadmill 5-7 minutes twice a day right now.
The first minute or so he still gallops like a lunatic, but he then slows down to a trot and finally ends up walking for the last 3-4 minutes. When he really starts panting I make him get off... he gets a treat, drinks an enormous amount of water, rolls over for a belly rub - and happily passes out for a while. :dance:

I'm SO proud of my baby chicken. :D :D :D
