Dog-walk­ing video (by Jhoosier42)

Thanks to Tri­cia for point­ing me to this one. A dog-walk­ing game which employs both a tread­mill and an instru­ment­ed leash. From the look of it, dog walk­ing has nev­er been this hard or tir­ing. I can imag­ine a game like this ful­fill­ing a real need in the large cities of Japan (there’s cat cafes too, after all). Some more thoughts on the coevo­lu­tion of man and domes­ti­cat­ed ani­mals such as cats and dogs can be found in this arti­cle from which the video was tak­en.
