Exercising outside when it’s 7 below zero is not really my cup of tea. I’ll do it if I have to but I’d prefer not to. Pongo and I went for a 40 minute walk today. And while it was a brisk walk in attempt to stay warm, I don’t really call that a workout. So, I hopped on the treadmill this afternoon. In the past, we’ve tried to get Pongo to walk on the treadmill by himself but in order for him to walk on it, you have to be walking on it with treats. I wasn’t too worried about him getting his exercise today as we walked this morning and played frisbee out in the yard a couple of different times. But when he decided to jump on the treadmill with me, I took advantage.
(I apologize for the poor video quality but walking, while videoing and feeding treats to Pongo was a task in itself!)
That is AWESOME! I love the part where his back feet are on the floor and his front feet keep moving. Great job Pongo!
He spends 75% of his time “on” the treadmill that way. I’m worried he’s going to bulk up in the shoulders so much that he ends up looking like Hector the dog from Looney Tunes!
Ha! I love it!
