Our dogs’ lingering looks at our dinner plates and our weakened resolution to not give in to their pleadings are probably a few of the reasons why dogs these days are overweight. From feeding them off our plates to always giving them doggie treats, pet owners actions dictate their dogs weight and health. So when it comes to slimming down our pets, it’s up to us, the dog owners, to find ways for them to drop a few pounds when it’s necessary.
- Don’t leave kibble out all day.
- Enjoy additional playtime, but keep it light.
- Practice portion control.
- Try interactive toys.
- Take long walks around the neighborhood.
