He's doing a lot of lip licking and looking away, which are avoidance behaviors. But it's hard to say whether that's about the treadmill or the camera. (a LOT of dogs don't like cameras pointed at them)
In any case, he doesn't look traumatized or anything. If it's something you want to do with him semi-regularly, I'd just keep sessions short to start with, and use LOTS of positive reinforcement with praise AND yummy treats. My guess is that as he gets used to it, he'll probably settle right down.
He sure is cute!
BTW, the exercise ball is GREAT for Havanese with their longer backs. It really helps them develop and maintain core strength.
