The treadmill is an excellent way of increasing stamina; building muscle strength; improving proprioception and improving the gait. Ideal for dogs who do not like water or for those who just cannot afford for their dogs to have regular hydrotherapy.

It can be used as a physiotherapy tool after surgery or to help dogs that have muscle atrophy and need to strengthen their hind legs.

Sessions start at just a few minutes and are built up to around 10 minutes, working on an incline. Walking and running uphill is an excellent physiotherapy exercise and is far more tiring than you would imagine!

"Our German Shepherd Montie was diagnosed with JDM when he was just over a year old. The condition affects proprioception, which meant that he was unable to pick up his back feet properly, scuffing his nails badly. The treatment advised by the Vet was to strengthen his muscles by treadmill work and so we contacted Splash. Debbie wrote a complete programme for Montie, building up the speed, duration and incline over a period of time. He has been coming to Splash for over three years now and we are pleased to say he is now a very strong and healthy boy who has no problem with picking up his feet when walking. We will continue for the rest of his life to maintain his strength.

Without Debbie's help at Splash, Montie would not be able to walk properly and we are so pleased at how well and strong he is."
