GoPet PR725 vs GoPet PR730: A Comparison of Large Dog Treadmills

Big dogs and treadmills...

As the proud parent of a gentle giant, you know perfectly well how lovable and adorable they are. They’re even tempered, they’re great with kids, they’re friendly, and they can walk or run for hours!

Big dogs have a lot of energy. If you don’t give them the time and space they need to release all that energy, then you’re probably not gonna like what they’re going to do next.

If you don’t want to come home to a nasty scene (think trash everywhere!), then you best get your dogs something that will help them release all that pent-up energy. Like a large dog treadmill, for example. That said, there aren’t a lot of treadmills that can accommodate heavyweight dogs.

GoPet, one of the leading pet treadmill manufacturers, have two different models that are made especially for large dogs. These are the PR725 and the PR730.

Now, this company has been making high-quality pet treadmills for over a decade now. And both these treadmills are no exception – both are engineered with your dog’s health and safety in mind. 

So, let’s dive in to our comparison, shall we?

Should you buy an electric treadmill for your big dog?

Not all pet owners need to buy a treadmill for their dogs. These things do cost a lot of money. But if you’re not able to give them the level of exercise they need, then a dog treadmill will be a great investment. Here’s when you know it’s time to buy one:

  • You can no longer take them out for walks or runs

Perhaps you got a new job (yay!) or you got injured (*nay*). Either way, you’re no longer able to take your big dog out for their daily walk or run. Walking them once or twice a week is most likely not going to be enough. On those days you can’t take them out, letting them run on a treadmill should suffice.

  • You live in an area with more rainy days than sunny ones

Yeah, some parts of the world are just more wet than dry. And it’s no fun taking your dog out for a run when it’s raining. It can get dangerous. It’s also no fun cleaning up the mud and dirt they track into your house when it rains outside!

  • They are naturally high-energy dogs

Some dogs are just born energetic. Even if you take them out for a walk for a few minutes each day, it’s never enough for them. But if you have a treadmill at home, you can just switch it on and let them run on the machine until they get tired!

Conclusion

Big dogs are powerful creatures. An inferior treadmill – made with substandard materials - won’t last very long with big dogs. If you have a big dog, you’ve basically got two choices – the GoPet PR725 or the GoPet PR730.

If you have a dog that weighs no more than 176 pounds, then the PR725 is a no-brainer.

If your dog weighs more than 176 pounds but not more than 264 pounds, then it’s the PR730 for you.

Without a doubt, these two are the best electric treadmill for large dogs!
