Skate Like The Dog Whisperer: LandRoller Skates

As a dog owner I must admit, I really enjoy watching "Cesar Milan - The Dog Whisperer." I'm not saying that I agree with everything he does, but I do LOVE that he encourages dog owners to exercise with their pets. He's not talking about casual walks in the park either. He's into heart pumping, muscle moving, panting and sweating. I'm into that too.

On his show, he often "walks the dogs" wearing unique looking rollerblades - LandRollers. They have amazing angled wheel technology. Want to hear more about them? Then

LandRoller skates are great because the oversized wheels allow you to ride over small obstacles, like cracks and bumps, with ease. The wheels are positioned on the side providing more control so you can make tighter turns.

The pair pictured on top (to the right) are Women's Terra 9 LandRollers ( $199.99) and the angled wheels help provide a smooth and stable skating experience.

The pair pictured on the bottom are unisex LandRollers - Apolo Anton Ohno Limited Edition Skates. These are a bit more expensive ($219.99), but you're paying for Apolo's name and a limited edition product, only a few hundred will be sold. You might only be familiar with Apolo as the latest Dancing with the Stars champion, but he made his name at the Olympics by winning two golds for short track speed skating. The skates bearing his name are made for speed - you don't have to waste time tying up your laces. You just pull the laces tight and Velcro them in place. These also have that amazing angled wheel technology.

These skates tend to run on the snug side, so order them in the largest shoe size you normally wear (that means if you sometimes wear an 8 1/2 and sometimes wear an 8, choose a size 8 1/2).

If you like rollerblading with inline skates, you'll definitely want to try a pair of LandRollers. If you're a beginner to skating, these skates will make it easier to learn since they provide a more stable, smoother, and quieter ride.

Great article! I love rollerblading. I'm on my skates everyday. I sometimes shop at Roller Hockey Monkey and like to use Roller Hockey Monkey coupon codes to save some money

I'm a size 8.5-9 in my regular shoe, so I ordered the size 9 in the landrollers... they were HUGE. I went down to the size 8 and they fit great. If you live on the west coast, I recommend going to one of the stores to try them on. If you're on the East Coast like me, then you might want to consider getting a half size down, not up. Just my two cents!

I love that Cesar makes people view dog breeds in a different light. He showed me that not all pitpulls are mean, and that with daily exercise, your dog will be more happy and calm.

He's brave to put wheels on his feet while holding that many leashes! I'm not even brave enough to try it with one dog! ;-)

The website for LandRoller is hilarious! There's a silicon-enhanced chick in a teeny bikini and some bikers are turning around to gawk at her... and I'm supposed to believe it's because of the skates??

They look cool but dangerous. I've never rollerbladed and doubt I'll try these.

i cant stand this guy, you know you can train your dog without being so abrasive, i thought my doggie not to bark at company and seat,stay give his pawn and kiss and stop bitting people with just doggie treats and love and he was a grown ass dog, plus i did it all in no more then 2 months.

They look liked I'd kill myself on these. I'm old enough that I did the roller skating thing (y'know, short skirt, pompoms on the skates) but never could do roller blades.

I love the show, Cesar is really funny but the rollerblades look weird to me. I'm not sold on these yet.

Those look cool! I love Cesar Millan, btw. He is one of those people that DOESN'T hate Rotties or Pit bulls. I think the only dogs that bite him are the chihuahuas and the little poodles. I love to walk my dog, but I bet she'd love to rollerblade with me.
