I do. It is very important to use either a treadmill made for dogs, or, if a human treadmill, to make sure that it has an extra long belt. The dog's stride is mch longer than a human stride and if on a too short belt, they will learn to short stride and the possibility of injury increases.I enclose the front and both sides with an ex-pen, and start the dog on lead, gradually increasing the speed.
Also, a dog should be 18-24 mos old before doing any kind of road or tread work.
