    I paid $30 for our motorized one off of craigslist, the guy was asking $40, but we talked him down $10. :D

    Yay!!!

    My girls adore their's! Everytime I go downstairs, even if it's to go to bed, both girls are there standing on the treadmill, wagging their tails.

    Just hopping into this thread to say I've been training Bamm on the treadmill now for over a month. His muscles are starting to look SO much better. He LOVES jogging and running on the treadmill.

    Haven't really worked with Cricket and Joey yet.

    I need a treadmill that controls my internet use.

    I would be SO IN SHAPE.

    Ok, so I wanted to say for those looking for a treadmill: People REALLY do read the Craigslist wanted ads.

    I might be the only one that didn't think people ever actually read those but I posted an ad a week or so ago and I've gotten so many replies so far. Nothing yet I can get just because of distance and price, but I'm still waiting on a few replies from recent emails back to people.

    So yeah, put a wanted ad up.

    Woohoo! Got a reply from someone who lives close, has this Treadmill and just wants it gone, willing to sell for 40 dollars.

    Yipee!

    I'm really happy that worked for you!

    So, um, do any of your dogs get either 1. a little obsessive about jumping ON the treadmill any chance they get and/or 2. ramped up just by being on it?

    Both of the above fit Aeri now that she's got the hang of using ours. I'm still doing VERY short sessions but we're starting to bump up speed to fast trotting, allllmost running, and she does.not.want.to.stop. The other dogs are neutral to happy about the 'mill but not THIS happy.

    Just wanted to see if anyone else has seen the same behaviors and whether it's a mal thing, a novelty thing, or a her thing. LOL

    My little one definitely jumps on there anytime I let her in the room. She's jumped on it while it was moving when *I* was on it before so now she's banned from the room if it's on lol.
