No, you have NOT seen everything yet! Not, at least until you see these spinning exercise wheels for your dogs and cats. Not treadmills... they are so yesterday! Wheels, like way-oversized hamster wheels.
GoPet has gone for the exercise wheel idea, in a big way, with its high-tech TreadWheels. Built like a giant fan without the fan, GoPet lets your dog control the speed of the spin by walking or running inside of the wheel. The running surface is cushioned to protect the pads of your dog's paws.
While you're away, your dog can play... goes the GoPet caption for this video. But, I suspect if your dog does this while you're away, he's got issues....
A smaller company, Sunnica, dedicated to eco-design for pets, has created the Cat Exercise Wheel, which, weird though it may seem, makes more sense to me than a dog wheel because there is prey involved, even though it's fake prey. The tread inside the Cat Wheel is made from a composite paint that has rubber particles in it.
These cats seem fascinated by the wheel....
The Cat Exercise Wheel is crafted by hand and each order is custom-made in your choice of 20 different wood stains and two sizes. Here, is the Wheel in a darker stain with an added cat toy box....
I wonder if my couch cat would go for this? And, for how long?
That's the spin for today!
