Exercise Them Mini Dawgs

SUMMARY: An interesting invention for smaller dogs.

If your dog is no taller than 14" at the shoulder (Chihuahuas, Pekingese, like that--even most Shelties and Beagles are taller than that), if you can't keep that dog exercised by tossing a tennis ball across the living room, and if you always admired that hamster lifestyle, this is for you.

Now they need one for them big dawgs who can cover the whole living room in a single bound.


  1. OMG! I'm trying to imagine the size of the wheel for a dog like Sparky or Rem!

  2. Remington was 24" at the shoulder, Tika's just under 23", Boost is around 20". Even Jake was almost 18". Or was it almost 19"? How quickly we forget...

  3. I'm afraid if I had one at my house Devon would be init 24/7:-)

  4. My thought is that if someone has a dog and no time to exercise it...they shouldn't have a dog!

  5. It is wall mounted! And all my dogs measure less than 13.25"! And I have walls! This was made for me! I could get 3 and have races!

  6. Oooh, Devon, of course! And Team Small Dog, of course you have small dogs! And they're, like, all real dogs, too! Not that I have anything against Papillons.

    Dawn: Of course the device would be a supplement to what we in our feeble lives with actual jobs, injuries, disabilities, commutes, facebook memes to read, and such already give our dogs in the way of agility exercise. I can't really jog because of my knee. Well I can but the doctor says not a good plan. The dogs could really use some supplemental jogging. So, you see, one could be a good owner and still need a hamster wheel! But I doubt I could afford $2 or $3 thousand for one in the correct size dimensions. Sigh.
