I have a treadmill, when Echo broke a bone in her hock she needed gentle exercise which had to be controlled, a friend had a treadmill she had used twice and her dog hated it so I bought it from her, Echo hated it and refused point blank to move, Bomber thought it was a wonderful game!

It is now used for stacking gear on.... damn expensive ornament! but hey, one day I may use it.

Many exhibitors use these, but they have to be used in moderation - one dog I judged had been exercised on one and was so overmuscled it was awful.

I personally think the dogs prefer a good run, but yes I agree there are times when one could come in handy, I keep telling myself this to justify the room mine takes up doing nothing!

I do believe for health reasons, like rehabilitation exercises, they should be used but not to replace laziness

Louie loves to play fetch in the apt. Sometimes he starts bouncing back and forth with butt up in the air, AND THEN he get wound up and starts running through the apartment with a large spirt of energy like a maniac, tail tucked between his legs and pupils dilated. When he stops he is panting and kind of coughing . He freaks he cat out. She tried to run with him but he was too fast.

We also go for walks but he is mainly on leash. Sometime I run a little with him on pavement during our walk.

Since I am in the city so we have a couple of dog parks that separate large dogs from small but I have not taken him there. It's good to have them because he could run off leash, however, other dogs may have behavior issues or not have shots or have fleas or tick issues so I hesitate to take him there.

What do you think about dog parks?

Also Do Lhasa's have back problems? He was pound puppy so I have no early history. He sits to the side sometime but when he stretches on his stomach he does extend his hinds legs. He is just 2 years old.
I have not had him X-ray'd yet.

Louie sounds a bundle of fun, my Bobby plays like this too, he also sits to the side and lays with his back legs extended out backwards but this is quite normal for Apsos so I don't think there is anything wrong with Louie but we always say if you're worried you should have him checked out.x
