Get those steps in.
A woman has created a mobile dog gym, equipped with its own treadmill.
Mirjam Kunnberg, 37, created her doggy gym at home in Australia, kitting out a van with air conditioning and a treadmill.
Nicknamed the ‘Woofer Wagon’, Mirjam wants to make sure all dogs get the chance to go for a run, even if they aren’t able to go outside.
She said: ‘I do it mainly because modern day dogs don’t have many opportunities for a proper run anymore with the ongoing urbanisation, or due to their behavioural issues.
‘A lot of my clients just want to do something extra and fun with their dogs and it’s great for strengthening the muscles too.
‘You’ve got the ones who will run like mad without needing any extra encouragement and I actually have to stop them or slow them down, otherwise they will run until they drop.
‘Then I have the ones who will do for the engagement.
‘Some dogs will use my service to build confidence. I introduce them to mill work, which can be a little stressful for the dog and then teach them to overcome it.’
It’s important dogs get exercise, and this clever contraption is helping improve their health.
