Default Im getting a temporary.

On sunday i will be making a new addition to my pack.
I dont know how temprary its going to be though.
Could be up to a year maybe. Im kind of excited, i raised her from 8 weeks up until she was about 4 months old so i already know this dogs temporment and what she is like to work with .

She is my aunts dog, my aunt is in the middle of a divorce and is moving into a rental house until her new house is built. they havent even started building it yet.

This was bailey as a pup, when i was still very involved in her raising








this is bailey now.
any suggestions on how to help a dog loose weight ?



Actually , to be honest, shes even worse then that now. :/

some advice would be nice on helping her loose weight at a healthy pace.

I would too... Shes a faulty lab lol... Shes not lacking an off switch like so many ive ever experienced. shes lacking an on switch. She is THE calmest dog, and always has been. Shes very trustworthy. Hasnt been in a crate since she was a small pup and has yet to destroy or get into anything she isnt supposed to when left alone, she is amazing with a heart of pure gold.

Cut her food portions to the proper size, probably about 1 cup, 2x daily, and then giver her lots of green beans to help her hunger cravings. Up her exercise and voila, fit dog.

^ this. You can also get a low calorie food meant specifically for obese dogs so you can feed her more (which will help her feel full) while still keeping the calorie content low. That's what worked with Chloe. I had cut back her food to half of what she had been eating, but she still wasn't loosing any weight. I didn't want to cut her food back any more than I had, so I just switched to a low(er) calorie food, still feeding the one cup amount. She's back to a good weight now.

Also, has she had her thyroid checked? That could have something to do with her weight gain/lack of energy.

Thyroid has been checked, has had full blood tests done. Theres medically nothing that makes her gain weight. She on average eats about 1 cup of food a day. She will physically not eat any more then that although she is offered more. Her adeal weight would be around 40-45 lbs. Shes about the same size (if she was in shape of course) as my lab casey is.
