Dog Wheel

Like a hamster wheel, only with grass.

Solves a daily problem - dogs need walking, people need to walk them. If the dogs had a stretch of grass to run on, and the grass was inside a wheel arrangement, the dog would be able to be walked without taking it out and without much space requirement. A large room full of dog wheels would be suitable for a whole block of flats.

The main advantage is getting shitting dogs out of my way.

       Now the engineering problems of keeping the ball ever so slightly ahead of the dog need to be solved.

       The problem is that a giant hamster wheel does not encourage the building of any skills on the part of the dog. Put the grass on the outside of the wheel instead, and said canine will at least improve its balance skills. And learn not to stop abruptly.
