'Boss Of The Treadmill': Adorable Dog Edges Out Competition (VIDEO)

Commented Jun 16, 2012 at 18:06:37 in Good News

“That's very gracious of you, LeeLo, and I really appreciate your reply, more than you know. It's very discouraging to work hard every day for these rescue dogs, some who need extensive rehabilitation, and be accused of animal abuse. Two of these dogs, the Yorkie on the left, Heidi, and the poodle in the back, Mugsy,are currently available for adoption. Heidi actually sits on the treadmill and waits for me to turn it on. The other Yorkie runs to get on when he hears me turn it on. Mugsy is just starting out in therapy, and is making great progress.”

“Perhaps you have not introduced them to the treadmill correctly. The treadmill (used correctly) is great therapy for dogs who have been abused, or who need confidence-building.”

“Two of them ARE up for adoption from our small rescue that has adopted out over 1000 Yorkies. This is part of their therapy, and they love doing it. They also walk outside and have 25 acres of woods to play in. Walking on the treadmill has a calming effect and builds confidence, especially in puppy-mill survivors and abused dogs. If you want to know what real animal abuse and torture is, try bathing a tiny puppy-mill survivor and watch her teeth fall out right into the tub from the neglect that she has suffered. Or talk to people who work to shut down these mills and save as many as they can. I know some of them, and they can tell you what real torture and abuse is.”

“These dogs like walking on the treadmill and it is part of the therapy for some of our rescue dogs that have been abused or have come from puppy mills. They also walk and run outside, and they get agility training as well. When the treadmill gets turned on, they run to get on it. They know how to get off as well, if they want to. By the way, this "lazy animal abuser," as you call it, has rescued and placed over 150 Yorkies, and has dedicated her life and most of her time, to rehabilitating these dogs.”

“They DO walk outside. This is therapy for some of our rescue dogs, especially the dogs that come from puppy mills. It has a calming effect, and builds confidence. For puppy-mill survivors, especially, walking on the treadmill is not as frightening as walking outside. It readies them for walking outside.”

“The point of the treadmill is that it is therapy for some of our rescue dogs. Walking on the treadmill has a calming effect that walking outdoors does not have. It is especially helpful in building confidence in some of our rescue dogs that come from puppy mills. They also get walked and have access to a secure fenced-in area all day where they can run and chase squirrels, and falling leaves.”

“According to their papers, both Yorkies are pure-bred Yorkies.”

“FYI, this "lazy" owner has dedicated her life and most of her time to rescuing and rehabilitating Yorkies (over 150 at last count). This is part of their therapy, as well as agility training, and running on 25 acres of woods. They have full access to a fenced-in secure area all day. Walking on a treadmill has a calming effect on some of these rescues, who have been through hell, some of them in puppy mills.”

“Lots of dogs are perfectly happy staying at their owner's side. I certainly would rather a dog have a home with love than be put to sleep in a shelter.”

“These dogs do get walked outside, but the treadmill is therapy for some of our rescue dogs. The dogs love walking on the treadmill, and, in fact, they sit beside it and wait for me to turn it on.”

“Jean, thanks for recognizing the value of treadmill use for dogs. It is used as therapy for some of our rescue dogs, and they love running on it. They get outside exercise, too, on 25 acres of woods (lots of chasing squirrels, agility training, etc.), but they love running on the treadmill. It is sad to me that so many people commented about this video without knowing the facts. By the way, two of these dogs are rescues and are waiting to be adopted.”

“These dogs love running on the treadmill, and they can get off any time they want to-- notice that they have no leashes on. They also do walks, but running on the treadmill is therapy for some of these rescue dogs that have problems and are being rehabilitated.”

“Just so you won't worry, these dogs have 25 acres of woods to run in. Two of these dogs are rescue dogs, and running on the treadmill is part of their therapy. The other dog loves running on the treadmill.”

“That's the problem with the internet...the imagination can run wild.  My apologies; I should know better than to judge.”
