If you think this GoPet Tread Wheel is a sensible alternative to taking your dog for a walk, then as far as I’m concerned you shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near our four legged friends. In essence it’s an oversized hamster wheel designed for dogs to get a little exercise without their owner having to put in any effort. It even has a safety door so you can lock your dog inside until you’re ready to spend time with it again. Well, actually, it’s so the dog doesn’t fall out while ‘exercising’ since apparently running inside a giant wire wheel isn’t a skill they’re naturally born with.
The smallest version of the GoPet Tread Wheel, designed for toy breed dogs is $357.03 (ugh, inflation! I remember when they were only $357.01!) while a fully tricked out version for medium sized dogs, including an exterior house mount, is $845.88.
