Since I'm sick as a dog, I figured I'd re-post this awesome video featuring our golden retriever, Cooper. Because I am lazy and hate going outside in the winter, I trained him to get exercise this way. In the beginning, I needed treats to keep him on there. Now, though, we never use treats, but Cooper remembers; he LOVES it and will often whine until we put him on it.
If Cooper can do it, so can you! Hope this gets you up and going! (I'll just watch, thanks.)
