Run Bella Run!
Posted by Jennifer Petre on December 21, 2010
We are working it here at Stiggy’s Dogs. It’s that time of year for exercise! During the cold bitter days, here is one alternatives for our dogs. We like to train them on a treadmill, since most of our Veterans are (were) runners. This helps the dog run with their new owner, or gives the owner another way to exercise their dog. “A tired dog is a good dog”! Bella now knows how to run on a treadmill AND run next to a bike!!! She is such a goooooood girl!! Just look at her…..
These treadmills that the dogs are trained on go with the dogs to their new home. The Veterans gets his new Therapy Dog and a treadmill (for them both!) How rewarding and motivating! So if you know of anyone who has a treadmill in their basement gathering dust, put it to good use! Donations of treadmills greatly appreciated!
