What is a MOBILE DOG GYM?
Out 2 Run Fitness is an exercise service for your dog which is brought to your home. Our fully equipped, climate control van will provide a safe, secure and fun way to run or walk your dog. These exercise sessions are great during extreme weather months.
What is a Slat Mill TREADMILL?
A treadmill made specifically for exercising dogs. This type of treadmill is not powered by a motor, instead it uses kinetic energy to provide exercise movements for your dog. The slats on the treadmill are attached to a belt which make a safe, solid surface for your dog to walk or run.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOR MY DOG?
Your dog will be placed in a harness and attached to the treadmill. Positive encouragement such as toys and praise is used to motivate your dog to walk or run. There is no limit on how fast your dog can run, and many dogs may experience full speed running in the first session.

Happier and Healthier Dogs
Exercise promotes health, agility and happiness. Dogs require regular exercise to live long healthy lives, just like humans.
Regular fitness helps deter behavioral issues such as excessive chewing, barking, and hyper activity.
When paired with a proper diet, exercise can help with keeping your dog at a healthy weight.
If you're out of these areas we may still be able to accommodate you. Please reach out to us!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are your requirements to work with my dog?First, contact your veterinarian prior to making your first appointment to ensure they recommend physical activity for your dog. Second, we will need a copy of your dog’s current vaccination records. Third, we will need you to read and sign the waiver form. Then, schedule your appointment online and we will meet you on the day and time you scheduled.
How often do you recommend I schedule for my dog?We offer weekly, bi-weekly and on-demand scheduling, so it depends on your dog’s needs. Most clients schedule once a week, which they find benefits their dog mentally and physically. When the more extreme weather months are upon us, it may benefit your dog to schedule exercise twice a week. If you have specific needs and would like to discuss them, please contact us.
How do you exercise my dog?We first start with getting your dog comfortable being on the Slat Mill Treadmill. This introduction is the first and most important step so your dog starts to gain confidence in learning a new technique. Once your dog has gained confidence on the treadmill, we will start to have them walk and continue to build towards their goal of running. Many dogs will quickly learn to trot and become more confident. As your dog’s confidence continues to build, we will increase your dog’s pace to give them a fun-filled session. We will use positive motivation and toys to gain the most for your dog. The exercise will be done in bursts throughout the time of your session, in order to get the most out of it. While your dog is enjoying their new activity, they will be gaining health and mental benefits.
Do I need to be home for you to run my dog?We prefer for you to be home until your dog is confident with the exercise sessions. After we have determined they are ready, we can arrange for your dog’s workout even when you’re not home.
