If you're talking about dog treadmills, they're expensive. They seem to start at around $1000. I would think that someone who has skill with a welder could build one, though.

I was just chatting with someone who has one of these, as I want one. They are affordable. What was recommended to me was as little as 2 mins at a time when starting out. They have a lot of drag and are uphill. Going slow is key.

Wow LoveABull that red mill is really good-looking--usually those things are built for pragmatic purposes, but that's one that looks both useful and attractive. Well, you know, as treadmills go!

They are nice and they certainly know what they are doing. I think that they are overpriced because they are "Colby". Of course, to many it is like having a piece of history so it's well worth it.

I hope to have a grand carpet mill soon, then my plans to completely box myself out of my own office will be complete. It's become the dogs room with a computer. :tongue:

I think colby's mills are also expensive because they say they are quiet compared to other treadmills. Stitch has a mill from grandcarpet. But he rarely uses it because I take him jogging.

Wanna sell it?

I can't jog with my mutts because of back and knee issues - Plus I'm just out of shape, and not much of a runner... :roll:

I'd kill for a treadmill for my dogs, but it would be way easier to buy one locally than to have one shipped...

Let me know... :))

Sorry not for sale. I use it sometimes on rainy days or to show off to my neighbors. :))
