So, I guess it really is a legit trend because I gather from a conversation going on in Puppy Class, Silvia is very interested in getting a treadmill for the tricks aspect and has been inquiring about sizes and brands and how to get...
Its this video she says that has her wanting one:

and here's your size guide:

It kinda got me too... the ease of that dog doing complicated moves... but eh, I have some bills I gotta pay...

It's legit because Silvia wants one? Pfft... I like Silvia, but that makes me not want one even more. :-) If I had the woods and hills right outside my house that Silvia has, why on earth would I want a treadmill?

well see, Silvia is someone who goes her own way... she also sees tremendous value in just playing with your dogs without any toy or making up games with sticks... so if she is seeing some value in one of these things that her mountains and fields and woodlands are not offering then its not just trendiness... is for the tricks she says, so it would be about the mental development of her dogs as well as the physical?
I do think its funny though all these people getting treadmills for their dogs...

I'm excited by how cheap it's going to be to buy dog treadmills in a year, those suckers are going to be everywhere. I can already envision all the side by side human dog treadmills acting as clothes hangers pictures. Bandwagons are so fun, whether you are jumping on or off of them or just watching them go by!

and why you have to have a dog treadmill not a people one for your dogs

i don't know this for people who treat their dogs better than family blog, I'm going to have to check it out...

hahaha, yeah, until I can afford dental care and my own treadmill my dogs will have to get by and hopefully will not be horribly disadvantaged in life and not get into a good agility college...

social experiment prediction time:
will Silvia become less Silvia like since she now has a ton of online competition? I hope not, I hope she doesn't start combing her hair, or wearing a snazzy signature look. My little bubble would so be burst....

i still think she is going to go her own way, don't you? i think her dogs will keep her honest
but her enrollment is way up even more and she's got to do something with all that money... why not a treadmill for the times of year it is too snowy to hike------it looks like there are 147 people in her Puppy Class alone this session so that is $230 including her puppy dvd which she wants you to have... so thats $33,810 give or take for this session of one class. so i don't think she needs to feel threatened...

Well I hope not, but money, I suppose one could get really used to getting that much of it and not wanting to fall off of any bandwagons and having that influence some decisions....like I said, though I hope not because she lives in my magic fairy elf bubble that no evil can get inside of.
