Introduction: Puppy-Exersize Mobile!

get your dog fit, give him a healthy treat, and have fun with your dog!

**i reccomend using PUP-CORN snacks, for they are low-fat, no sodium, and highly nutritious. the dogs love em too.**

here is a video of puddin and the treat-mobile in action

Step 1: Stuff U Need

all you need is

an R/C car
the controller for the car
about a foot of some cord(dont use thread, that will break)
doggie snacks(need to have a spot to tie them on)
Scissors
a lighter to fuse cord
A small dog(we will use Puddin as an example)

Step 2: Put It Together

pic 1. prep the cord
fuse both ends and make a small knot at one end and leave the other one alone

pic 2. attach to car
takethe end with the knot and tie it to the wing of the car. if you dont have a wing, tie to bumper, drill holes, whatever

pic 3. tie on a treat
tie it to the leg or some place the treat can be pulled off by the dog.

Step 3: Drive!

have the dog smell the treat and drive it around, letting it chase it. Most importantly, let your dog get it some time, dont tease it.

This is a great idea. To bad my dog will only go for the kill of the RC car. He almost destroyed the biggest one I have.
It's a good project to do for a dog that will not try to brake the car.

I just got a dog and it loves chasing my Nitro RC car around. I guess he likes chacing things that make loud noises =)

Get one of those insanely fast rc cars and piss the dog off.

Good idea, but maybe you shouldn't let the dog eat off of a string, as it could choke. Maybe a tiny plastic basket on the back, like you buy fruit in... anyhoo, great idea.
