Treadmill. One of my good friends, who helped us get both Bennett and Banker, was into confirmation with her Goldens. After she was diagnosed with cancer and had to undergo both chemo and radiation, she started using a treadmill in addition to the walks with neighbor boys.
When we bought a treadmill, I made sure it had the longest possible deck. Bennett loved it - he quickly learned that it beeps three times before starting to move. Even though we never left him alone on it, I still attached the deadman's switch to his collar.
Banker doesn't care for it, but in the event of bad weather, it could be an option for him.
