Hey guys, I just finished building a carpet mill for my friend that has a lab.
I own a colby mill, but it is rather small and very old and another that I built.

It actually works better. All it takes is a MANUAL treadmill and you simply build a post behide the dog to hook up a harness. Works like a charm. Total cost $100.00 + a little sweat and enginuity.

Cheap way to exercise your dogs. Enjoy.
works fantastic. Actually, better than my colby mill (granted it is 15 year old now).

Pretty darn impressive Peter! I was looking at Doggy thread mills last night and I was thinking oh they will be like $100 or $200 bucks :shock: i almost fell out of my chair when I saw they were at least $700 :shock: :shock: . I was like uh she can sit here bored on rainy days :lol:

Is there anything wrong with putting them on a human thread mill? At least, I can use the darn thing too for that much money.

my treadmill was 1500 bucks. I don't think I will let my dogs slobber all over it. Besides, I want them to get SUPER tired. manual is good for them. the running surface gets super dirty with slobber. I don't think you would want to share.

PS. The one I modified was Jane Fonda. Really nice rollers on that one. 60 bucks at a garage sale. It even has a timer! The bonus is, it accomodates my bigger dogs. The colby one is a bit small for my male. This one fits great. I figure it it can accomodate a 300lb woman, it should work out for my 80lb dog.
