Weight management tips

In conjunction with Weight Care nutrition, a few hints and tips to help your dog stay in shape and be healthy and active.

Portion control

Make sure you choose the right product for your dog’s size and any health or dietary issues. And carefully measure the portions, as shown on the pack, for every meal. This way, your dog gets the nutrients it needs without overfeeding.

Plenty of activity

Help your dog keep active by taking them for regular walks, at least once daily – ideally somewhere where they can safely be off of the leash. You can also get them running by playing games in the park or at home.

Kibble rewards

Rewards are a great way to encourage good behavior, but they can lead to your dog gaining weight if you’re not careful. To avoid this, use kibbles from your dog’s meal allowance as rewards rather than giving them additional snacks. No more than 10% of your dog's total daily calories should come from treats.
