    It's a deal.

    Just had a look at the FitFurLife website- they really look nice, and Aussie made...

    Do you use the fitfurlife tread mills or human ones?
    I saw them at the Melb show and had a chat to lady there, the machine is so quiet, but the price was $$$ So I bought one off Ebay, so crappy and noisy the dog ran away.. lol
    Then had to put it out as hard rubbish. That was 2 years ago but I see why the fitfurlife machines are good.

    I use a human 1 @ home but have had acces to the fitfurlife 1 & they are wonderful & my most desired brand of dog trend mills.

    I have a human one. It cost a bomb as it has a extra wide and long deck. Very quiet, too. I bought it because I was not at that time aware of the FitFurLife machines. My Dobes get full stride, but in all honesty, I covet a FFL one!

    If I do buy one, my current machine will be available 

    In my house, if any of us try to use the treadmill, we will get booted off by Kuro who will then do his 500 meters or more..
    He just jumps off when he's had enough and then we are allowed to use it...
    Fancy a Dog telling us when we can use the Treaddy !!!!

    not much into treadmills, would rather walk outside.

    It is a problem if the weather is bad but that's not often around here.

    Oh yes walk outside is nearly always better but it can be ever so helpful with some training if there energy levels are not sky high when trying to teach a behavour. I can also get them moving faster than I can when walking them unless I use a push bike ofcourse but some timid dogs hate having the bike so close. Also when working on aggression issues I like to have the dog already a little tired I start the walk in surburban areas. So for these reasons & a few more I love my treadmill.

    Do you mean that as a blanket statement, or do you mean it in terms of owners who only use treadmills to exercise? I explained my reasons a few posts back and to be honest your statement feels a little harsh in my context... You are entitled to your opinion, though, of course.
