“No it isn't. People do live in apartments in high rises and worry about their dogs getting enough exercise so if the owner is sitting right there with a camera I am sure they do keep their eyes on the dogs. Why do people think they have the right to criticize the way others do things? For all we know those 3-4 dogs were rescues and this person has a huge heart to take them in and make sure they get their walks. The world would be a hell of a better place if we all stopped expecting others to do as we do. Taking care of a dog is not STUPID it is just their way. D they look scared or injured to you?.....”

“You know, it seems stupid. But but humans do the same thing when they could go outside in the air and get exercise. That seems stupid.
I guess it's just matter of logistics: it could be snowing outside, they could have young children to take care of, or they could be infirm and want to provide a safe way for their pets to exercise.
Peace Lady. People aren't stupid, you aren't stupid, we are all just trying to live.”

“The dog isn't tied to the treadmill, the emergency release is attached to his collar so that if he lags behind or gets off, the treadmill will automatically turn itself off.”

“I am referring to the toll factory farming takes on our planet and the abuse animals suffer as a result. Factory farming is not sustainable in any sense. (Not that I am saying you are referring to FF here)”

“then please state that you mean factory farming. there is a world of difference between that and free range meat production and just saying '' don't eat meat or eat less '' doesn't make the point.
in fact not eating meat and other animal products can be more detrimental environmentally and to animal welfare. of course i don't support factory farming. i've been a vegetarian/vegan for over 30 years and started eating meat again because i live in ireland which is quite different from most of germany where i'm from in what you can grow, and because 2 farming families opened a shop where they sell their own meat and other produce,. i also know another small farmer where i can actually watch sows rolling in the mud and suckle their young as well as an assortment of other animals.”
