New York, NY, December 31st, 2008 - Continuing its 161 year history of offering the world's most unique products, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces an exercise treadmill designed specifically for dogs, allowing pet owners to maintain a consistent exercise regimen for their canine companions.

"The Canine Treadmill provides the perfect solution because it allows owners to exercise their pets despite inclement weather conditions, time and space constraints, or hectic schedules," explained Fred Berns, General Manager for Hammacher Schlemmer.

Operating at speeds of up to 5 miles per hour, The Canine Treadmill allows pets to get the same quality exercise as a brisk outdoor walk. Speed, distance, and incline can be manually adjusted using simple controls, or owners have the option of using pre-set time and distance controls to track and maintain their pets' progress. A whisper-quiet motor drives a rubber belt that is soft on paws, and side rails keep the dog's attention forward.

The included training guidelines and built-in recessed treat holder make The Canine Treadmill easy and comfortable for dogs to use. And because the owner must be present during exercise and takes an active part in the dog's training, pets enjoy the one-on-one bonding time with their owners that this kind of exercise affords.

Available in three sizes-- small for toy breeds and dogs up to 30 lbs., medium for breeds up to 60 lbs., and large for breeds up to 100 lbs.-- The Canine Treadmill provides an unexpected solution to ensure dogs of all sizes are getting the exercise they need to stay fit and healthy.

The Canine Treadmill retails at $549.95 for the small treadmill, $699.95 for the medium treadmill, and $899.95 for the large treadmill.
