    He has no ailments but iv been reading into it alot recently and it seems like great exercise and the dogs really seem to enjoy it. A centre has just opened up round the corner from us which is a bonus aswell. Going to post pictures when we have been, which will be in about a week an half.

    Lovely :) and sounds like a very good idea especially for a breed like Clayton as well, prevention is better than cure after all, its always touted as the best exercise for humans and animals.

    Most dogs absolutely adore it. Though do be aware that the first one or two may not be as pleasant an experience as you'd hoped. Some dogs take a while to get used to it :)

    Mine loved swimming but the pool was a bit of a culture shock :D

    Are you going to a pool or a treadmill?
