Spike Says: Fight Dog Obesity

14 01 2009

Dogs are also fighting the “Battle of the Bulge.” Obesity is now the #1 health problem for dogs.  As people get busier, they tend to let their exercise program go by the wayside, as well as the exercise their pets receive.  Keep an eye on what your dog is eating, how much they are eating, and that they get regular exercise, even if you have to “outsource” it to a dog walker or another family member.

But how do you exercise your dog in the extreme Wisconsin cold? I don’t have a treadmill, either. Would that be the wisest investment?

Use what you have. A couple games of fetch with their favorite toy in the living room or down the hall coupled with the right amount of food will do wonders during the winter. I would hold off on buying a treadmill, unless you have an EXTREMELY active dog that you are unable to walk enough to exercise.
