This Holiday Season Give the Gift of Good Health to Your Favorite Dog

EPHRATA, Pa., Dec. 9 Winter is here! So is the nasty weather. The ugly weather may discourage you but it does not deter your dog from craving the vigorous exercise it needs for good heath and well being. For some dog owners, breeders, kennels and others this is a problem.

GoPet LLC offers a solution for this problem by providing safe, secure dog-powered and electric dog exercise machines which can be used indoors or outside. Several options are available.

A canine electric treadmill allows the dog owner or trainer to control access, speed and duration for the walk or exercise time. Choosing the correct electric treadmill size is important. First consider what size the dog will be when full grown. The objective is to have a treadmill that has adequate room to run. The dog will be uncomfortable running on the edges so give the dog a third more running space front to back as he is long.

Next, choose a treadmill with a simple rail system. This is important to make sure your dog is not distracted and is focused on his exercise program. Get a treadmill without a center post. Most dogs don't want the fear of running their head into a wall. Of course, the noise level should be very low so it does not disturb the household while your dog is running. PetRun exercise treadmills qualify in every category for every size dog and every budget.

For safety, variable speeds and an emergency cut off should not be overlooked. For your convenience look for treadmills that fold flat, out of the way for storage.

Dog powered or "un-forced" exercise machines have been gaining popularity because the dog is in control. Dog powered devices are accepted by the USDA when used in conjunction with the other USDA requirements. Recently a veterinarian commented he could tell the health of the dog by observing how much the dog chose to exercise on the GoPet exercise tread wheel. Tread wheel choices are based on the dog's height, weight and accessibility. Tread wheels are available to accommodate toy breeds up to medium breeds.

Regardless of the size of the room, or back yard, dogs love to feel the wholesome goodness of a good run achievable by the treadmill or the tread wheel. Medical statistics show dogs live longer with a lean body mass and active life style. This holiday season may be a perfect time to give the gift of life to your favorite pet.
