This is very literally what you would think it is. It is a giant spinning wheel that the dog runs in and looks like something you might see at a county fair. They are more popular for and probably safer to use for cats.

The main drawback to something like this is that it has to be hard on their back. The wheel places the dog in a position that forces it’s back to arc and place stress on it while it’s running. It is also not the most space saving device. I obviously recommend that you be extremely careful when using one. No matter what modality you choose to go with, the health and safety of your dog should be the most important thing to keep in mind.

The video below shows this in action, but it is being used for an Alaskan husky that is bred to run very fast for extremely long distances.
