Why Exercise My Dog?

  • Excessive play biting and rough playtime

  • Seeking attention through barking and whining

  • Exploratory behaviors, similar to garbage rummaging

  • Excessive predatory and social play

  • Toppling furniture and jumping on people

  • Reduces digestive problems and constipation

What is a Slat Mill?:

A dog running treadmill, also known as a "slatmill," operates WITHOUT A MOTOR. Strictly powered and controlled by your energetic and excited pup! This means that your pup can stand, walk, jog, and run! We as trainers can challenge your pup by increasing resistance and elevation! 

Slat Mill Safety:

With a cushioned rubberized running surface your pup's paws will always be well protected! Wearing a well fitted harness and connected to the slat mill they cannot fall off. By using treats, toys, and energetic enthusiasm we will train your pup to love the mill! 

Benefits and Frequency of Slat Mill Use:

A slat mill will allow your pup to walk, jog, or run at any speed and for any duration of time they choose! The Running Lab recommends the use of our services once a week for a dog that loves to run on the mill while no more than twice a week for a dog that likes to walk on the mill! In some high drive dog breeds such as Belgian Malinois we recommend two runs per week on the mill. 

*Before involving your dog in physical activities, it's essential to consult with your veterinarian, especially if there's a risk of illness or injury. Additionally, ensure that your dog is up to date on all vaccinations.*
