Canine Exercise Wheels and Proper Dog Fitness

Regularly exercising your dog is important, but it can be hard to get them to dedicate to a routine. However, a clever dog owner at the Husky Homestead near Denali National Park in Alaska recently got his pup addicted to exercise by creating a canine exercise wheel. This YouTube video shows a beautiful Alaskan Husky (Suspect) running on a large canine exercise wheel. The wheel looks like a giant hamster wheel with Suspect as the adorable hamster.

This video was taken at the Husky Homestead near Denali National Park in Alaska. This dog training facility is owned by Jeff King is a multiple winner of the famous Iditarod dog sled race. During the presentation of his facilities Jeff and his daughter showcased this dog wheel which allows the Husky dogs to get some easy exercise near their pins. If you like this dog running in wheel video then make sure to give it a thumbs up!

The neat thing about the wheel is that it appears that Suspect can use it whenever he wants. In fact, Suspect jumps in and out of the canine exercise wheel and always with a big sloppy puppy grin on his face. The video maker even quips that the wheel should be converted into a backup electricity generator. Maybe the green energy power source for the next millennia?

While this video is pretty darn cute, we cannot quite get behind exercising your dog in this way. Just imagine if the dog tripped while the wheel was going full speed. The canine exercise wheels inertia could carry them up and around the wheel. This would be very dangerous to the dog and could cause injury.
