From Debi Manfredi
It's been a few months since receiving our grand deluxe mill and I wanted you to know we are very grateful. I wanted a treadmill for my 11 year old weimaraner as he has some 'senior dog issues' that make his long-distance excursions no longer possible. I am so glad we chose your product. He learned to use it quickly; we started out slowly and he's built up to 8 minutes, 2-4 times daily. I keep increasing him as long as he's comfortable. The mill is sturdy & beautify and will see many years use with future dogs, too. I wanted to thank you for creating such a quality product and wish you continued success! :-)
Here is my girl "Hera" enjoying a vigorous run, while my Golden Retriever "Comet" supervises. It took Hera two or three weeks to get the rhythm down for galloping, but now she has it and she runs like the wind. (I just applied the caulk to the belt yesterday as you recommend. I found my fingers worked better to rub in evenly into/onto the belt than the plastic squeegee. I'm not sure they make the Max5000 caulk any more, but I used a similar DAP acrylic caulk with silicon.) -- Steve

Just wanted to let you know that I have had my carpet mill from you about three years now. I cannot speak more highly of the quality of this product, and it's value as a conditioning tool. It was super easy to assemble, and even easier to change the belt. Also, thanks for the tip for caulking the belt with syliconized acrylic...it has tripled the life of my belt, and no 'road dust'.
I have seen a definite improvement in my dogs strength and muscle tone. Thanks for such a great treadmill!

It arrived today and my Corgi loves it! Here's a video of her on it just a few minutes after I finished assembling it:

I had to film this:
my dog was on the thing and walking almost immediately. after the
first day, he started to get a better sense of the pace. I expect he
will be running full tilt next week sometime.
My sweet rescue pit bull loves your Grand Deluxe Treadmill. It's so well manufactured, assembly was easy, and it's handsome-looking -- truly "furniture quality" as promised.
We got our carpet mill from you guys about two weeks ago, We have 3 APBT and 2 out of 3 absoultly love to get there time on the mill. My female runs like there is no tomorrow on it. My little male will tolerate it, but we do have to bribe him to run with some slice turkey or whatever is in fridge. This was one of the best investments we have made for our dogs. When are you guys gonna come out with a motorized mill for the lazy dogs (hahaha)?.

It was a snap to set up, and my dog has taken to it like a duck in water!
I was prepared to spend a month or longer teaching her how to run on the treadmill.
The first day, I set it up and left it
alone...paid no attention to it.
Yesterday, we had five 2 minute sessions where I
held the belt and let her stand on it while I praised her.
Today, I loosely gripped the front roller and
let her walk a minute (mostly stutter steps) at 9am. Again at 11am.
At 1pm, she jumped on herself and started
walking fast...I let her go for 3min. At 2pm she got back on and went full
She can start and stop it on her own, run full
speed or an easy trot. In less than 3 days...outstanding!
Thank you so much for a wonderful product, soon
I'll be "off the grid" with Comet generating all my power requirements;)
What an awesome product. I have a 4 month old APBT and I was
concerned that he might not take to it very well. It wasn't 5 minutes until
he was at full speed. I am certainly going to tell all of my friends about
Thanks alot for a great product!
