Wouldn’t it be great if you could just sit on a treadmill? Preferably burning calories while doing so. That’s the dream. Well, sadly, that’s not how treadmills work, as this adorable bulldog quickly found out! He climbs up on top of the moving treadmill to take a seat – only to find that he has to keep walking! Watch the video below to see how adorably in denial this bulldog is about the purpose of treadmills.

I think what’s happening here is that his owner is trying to train him to walk on the treadmill. Maybe for some indoor exercise? Or just to say that your dog can exercise on a treadmill…that is pretty impressive.

However, he’s figured out the perfect loophole to exercising: he’s walking to the top of the treadmill and then riding it backwards! Brilliant. Definitely trying his technique at the gym.
