The DogTread Small Dog Treadmill is the ideal canine indoor exercise solution.
Recommended for dogs up to 30 lbs.
Rain, snow, or summer heat can ruin any good running intention. Running inside on the DogTread means that you don’t have to cancel a workout because of bad weather. A dog treadmill means that you can provide a temperature-controlled environment which translates to more regularity and fewer excuses.
ANY TIME FITNESS
According the APPA National Pet Owners Survey, 50% of dogs are left home alone for 6-10 hours at a time during work hours. This puts workout time in the wee morning hours or late at night… or maybe not at all. Running on a treadmill offers convenience and often a safer alternative for many dog owners, giving you the flexibility to work out before you leave in the morning and upon your return.
PROMOTES WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
Exercise is proven to increase the metabolism which translates to more calories burned. For dogs that are obese, use the DogTread in the flat position to help get your dog moving slowly without distractions and undue stress on the joints. The monitored environment also helps you to stop the workout if your dog is too fatigued.
EASIER ON THE BODY
The DogTread is equipped with shock absorption platforms that result in less stress on the joints, as compared with running on asphalt or concrete. This is especially helpful for dogs approaching their golden years as well as for rehabilitation.
GET THE ZOOMIES OUT
By changing speed and incline you can mimic outdoor conditions to keep the mind stimulated and the body adjusting to new parameters to improve strength and conditioning levels. Many cities enforce tight control on leash laws, which limits the areas your dog can run effectively. If you don’t have space to stride out, the DogTread can be a great alternative to stretch the muscles and work on endurance.

When shopping for a doggie treadmill, the most important criteria for me was to make sure I could handle the whole thing by myself. This meant being able to unpack it, set it up and move it around as needed. I’m not big and strong, but I’m also not frail: female, mid-60’s, 115 lbs. The Dog Tread weighs just under 50 pounds (although the shipping weight with all the packaging is 71 pounds), and very importantly, it can fold up and be moved out of the way using the built-in wheels. I took a chance and ordered it. It was delivered to my garage door. I was able to manhandle it into the house by grabbing the strapping tape and sliding it across the garage floor, then maneuvering it onto a throw rug, which I then slid to the rec room where I unpacked it and set it up.
Unpacking: Oh boy, that was a JOB. First you will need wire cutters or something similar to cut off the heavy duty strapping tape. I don’t think ordinary scissors will work. The treadmill was packed in a succession of boxes not unlike Russian Matryoshka dolls, with each outer box secured by a boat load of large staples. You’ll need a large flat head screw driver and strong hands to pry them off. I’ve attached a picture of the pile of staples I removed. After removing each outer box, I had to flip the remaining package over to expose the top of the next box to reveal the next series of staples to be removed. I was able to do this on my own. There were a total of 3 box lids to remove before I hit pay dirt. Then it got a little tricky. The treadmill was bolted to a wood frame. The instructions say it takes two people to gently roll the contraption on its side. Gulp. But I managed to do it on my own by carefully sliding the entire bundle out of the box. Then I could operate on it using a large Phillips screw driver to remove the bolts, discard the packing boards, and finally liberate the treadmill. Yes, I did all this myself, but admittedly it would be easier with someone else to help.
Set up: The set up itself was not difficult. All the parts were included, easily identifiable, and also easy to install. The only confusing part about the set up was the first step of applying the silicon oil. The picture and description were not very clear and I had to look up online to find an example of how to do this task. Luckily, it’s a standard task for treadmills, so once I viewed a video, I understood what was required. However, I would not perform this step first as stated in the instructions, since subsequent steps require the treadmill to be turned on its side, and there is a risk that some oil would spill out in the process.
Operation: OK, I fumbled on this one, but really. The steps for using the treadmill basically say, plug it in, turn on the master switch, and it’s ready to go. You will have to read the instruction manual more carefully than I did at first to find out that you also must place the red safety key on the matching magnet on the side of the console before the belt will actually start running. After I found that little nugget of information in the manual...SUCCESS! I had a working treadmill at last. Start to finish, it was less than an hour.
But will my dog use it? A training manual is included with the treadmill. My best advice is “have patience and DON’T RUSH IT”. I let my dog get used to it from a distance, then I put him on it and fed him dinner without turning it on. I continued to let him interact with it while not turned on for several days. Then I let him watch the belt move without him on it so he could get used to the sound (which is, as advertised, whisper quiet). Only after I felt that he was comfortable around the treadmill and not stressed did I give it a try. I put on his harness and held onto it to keep him steady, then turned on the treadmill. The console counts down 3...2...1, then starts at .3 mph, extremely slow. My dog was only mildly curious, not startled, and he began to walk right away while I gently pulled him forward. I started feeding him one food bit at a time, almost continuously, so he was more focused on the food and less on the walking. The walking just became automatic. The .3 mph starting point is really slow, so I began increasing the speed. On the first session, I got it up to .7 with no issues. Now I routinely take it to .9 and may eventually try a little faster. You can use the remote control to manage all the console activities, but I find it easier to just use the buttons on the control panel. I never leave my dog unattended on the treadmill, so I’m already sitting in front of the controls anyway.
My dog doesn’t love it or hate it. He just knows when he gets on, there’s food involved and that’s all he cares about. This is a good way for him to get some exercise on these unbearably hot days when he hates being outside, and it will also be good in the winter when the weather is too treacherous for walks.
My dog is a 12 pound terrier mix. I purchased the smallest size DogTread treadmill, and it fits him just fine. This treadmill would work for a smaller dog, and also for a larger dog up to about 30 pounds.
I discovered after I finished setting it up, that the DogTread company no longer exists, and there is no website, no way to register the product, and therefore no warranty. For anyone concerned about this, it may be a good idea to purchase Amazon’s warranty. For me, I’m hoping the treadmill is well made and will last a long time. Overall, at least for now, the treadmill and my dog both perform exactly as I hoped they would. Two thumbs up.
- You can use it flat or at an incline
- It looks nice and can easily be put up against the wall when not in use. I was thinking about just getting a full sized treadmill (so we could share!), but this is much more compact, aesthetically pleasing, and convenient.
- My dog LOVES it. He can't wait to get on it when I go to pull it down into position. Of course, he ends up getting a lot of treats while he's on it.
- It has two little wells at the front where you can place a treat every once in a while to keep the dog motivated. It's very convenient, especially when you're starting out.
The not so good:
- I had some problems with the belt when I first got the treadmill- it kept shifting to one side. Apparently all you have to do is tighten one bolt and loosen another to get the belt to stay perfectly in the middle. It took a couple tries, but it's fixed now and I haven't had any problems since.
- I think the treadmill might be a little too short for my dog. Its perfect at low speeds, but once we reach a fast-ish jog/trotting speed, I get kind of worried that my dog is going to slip off. My dog's front and hind legs are only about 18 inches apart when standing still, but obviously this distance increases when he's walking. If he stays perfectly in the center of the treadmill, he's fine. But it gets kind of iffy if he gets a little distracted and slides a couple inches toward the end. He's slipped a couple of times, but without any damage whatsoever.
- There is a learning curve for the dog. My pup jumped right on it the first day and was walking nicely at a low speed for half a minute before he got bored and tried to jump off. Luckily it was slow... But after a while, slowing increasing speed and time, I have no problems. I've had it for a couple months now, and my dog is completely fine. This will probably happen with all treadmills.
Overall, this was a great purchase. The price is totally worth it to be able to exercise my dog when the weather outdoors is not cooperating.
