Channel that energy!
For dogs who have lots of energy, or who require more time in a day for exercise than you have available, treadmills are an excellent tool. A treadmill provides great physical stimulation and an intense mental workout. This type of exercise also helps to release pent-up energy and relieve stress – perfect for high-energy dogs.
Treadmill exercise should NEVER replace your on-leash walk! An outdoor on-leash walk is an important part of building and maintaining your relationship with your dog. Treadmills can be a great supplement to your daily exercise program — especially for high-energy dogs who require more time to achieve the proper amount of exercise to be balanced and calm.
Here’s how it works.
A clevercanines trainer will come to your home to teach you the basics of putting your dog to work on a treadmill. For a dog, treadmill exercise takes a lot of mental concentration, so it is important to correctly introduce them to the equipment to ensure a positive association with the exercise. There are many dangers of using this type of exercise, so we will show you how to get your dog to use the treadmill safely, and educate you on when it’s an appropriate tool to use.
Most dogs LOVE the treadmill, so these sessions are fun for both of you!
What to expect:
- All treadmill sessions are private classes
- A trainer will come to your home
- The treadmill introduction session typically lasts 30 minutes
- At the end of the session, your dog will be off and running!
Typically one introductory session is all that is required.
