Woke up this morning to some crapy weather; it's raining and the ground is all soggy and covered in wet slushy snow, so I knew it was gonna be a treadmill day...thought I'd share some pics of this morning's session, with everyone.



aaahhh not this again Dad


Good thing i've got my stick to keep me focused....look everyone!


Ok I walked on that thing again for you, now give me some COOKIES!



Time for a nap now, but without that darn camera in my face, grrrr!!

thanks for the compliments Sadiesmomma,

To answer your question, I started Gaby out on the treadmill as soon as I got her to get her used to it while she was as young as possible...I started out by just giving her treats on the treadmill but with it turned off making her lay down on top of it and then treating her....I did this for 3-4 days, to associate the treats with the treadmill, therefore in her mind treadmill means treats :lol: I then started out by making her walk very slow on it with her lead on and of course reinforcing this with more treats...after a few days of this I would gradually increase the speed up to a fast trot and giving more treats of course :)  now I just give her her stick as you can see in the pics and no more lead chain, and she gets her treats after the session ( it's good to make them work for food)....the speed I use is we start out at a slow trot for 10 min then I increase her to a fast trot for another 10 min, and then a cool down walking pace for another 10 min....so I do this twice a day when we can't get out because of the weather....so I guess the main thing if you want to get Sadie on the treadmill is be consistant, have a positive attitude and make it fun for her..

OMG those pics are just the best ! we have a big gym treadmill and Onyx and Isis will both lay on it..sit on it but when you turn it on they are ghost ! treats dont matter hahaha

i can see me now trying to put a leash on them and trying to get them to stay..they are both 80 plus pounds..wouldnt happen...hahahahha sometimes it would make things easier when we are in rainey season or when its too hot..

Gaby is gorgeous !!!

I can't believe she can go 1/2 hour without being distracted or get bored.  My two wouldn't make it 1/2 a minute.  And yes she's a pretty girl!
