Sucess! Brought the treadmill home this morning by 11 AM...set it up in our garage (this is human style but it works) and cleaned up. Electric type with mileage, heartrate and goes up to 10 MPH. Ok, so started out with letting the dogs out in the garage. They sniffed it but it was "Old Hat" in about 2 minutes. So I turned it on and let it run on low speed while they could investigate...they ignored it. Turned machine off, coaxed Lily over to it (used leash to help with coaxing but did not drag and let her have her space) put treats up the tread and encouraged her to step on it... She got on and ate the treats. Lots and lots of praise and about 1/2 a lb of sliced cheese later I started it on slow...like ultra turtle slow. At first it confused her as to why the floor was moving and she jumped forward (I stood in front of it) but then figured out she could walk with it. Sucess! Tons and tons of cut up pieces of cheese and within about 5 minute she was walking right along on it...did this for about 2-3 minutes with lots of treats and ended session! Smokey, on the other hand, will get on it coaxed with treats but if you turn it on even ultra slow he gets confused and jumps off...I think he'll take more time but eventually he'll figure it out...so we left it with getting on it and being treated and lots of praise, then getting off again. We'll try this for a couple of days and then try to get it back onto ultra turtle slow - but may have to block the sides to keep him from stepping off...we'll see!
