Unbelievably to watch! This is right every way you look at it. The dogs are clearly having a whale of a time and walk or not as is their choice. This idea deserves no criticism from anyone. Excellent.

I think treadmills are a very good idea for dogs to get exercise and the set up in the video is well done. It is really difficult to let a dog get out all of its energy. To counter the response as commented before, treadmills are not just "for lazy people who won't get off their butts and walk their dogs". My dog gets walked twice daily but that is not enough. She would enjoy the extra exercise of a treadmill. Dog parks don't cut it either. Her first trip to a dog park she came became ill. So for a high energy dog a treadmill would be great with obvious supervision.

They are a little confused in the beginning; but, wait until they catch on to the program.

Very "busy" dogs but as soon as their person goes inside they will all go to sleep.

Hmm. I'm thinking about what G.C said about whether it looks like they're being forced & I'm worried. I sincerely hope not. That would be disgusting.

The man's whistling is irritating. I looked to see if the dogs were somehow tied to the treadmills but, didn't see anything. Since they aren't electric, they will automatically start when they start walking. I'm sure there is a way for them to get off. I like the ball on a string on a stick. I wonder if my dogs would?
