Default Small brag on Bandit's weight loss

He isn't fat anymore. His harness used to be TIGHT and digging in on him and now it's loose and saggy. He's not quite ideal but for an older dog who was fat he is finally making some progress. I'm so stoked. I'd call him on the higher end of average now and not overweight. He looks great, he's feeling great and I noticed a skip in his step he hasn't had in a long time.

First of all I just love Bandit and Congratulations on his weight loss. How did you do it? Gunner is fat and the vet had me cut back on food but I still do not see a difference.

Honestly you can't see the progress because how much hair he has but it's the difference between having love handles and not.

He lost weight by having his food cut back including treats, we only train with food from his daily intake and I've been exercising him a lot more too. I think the exercise has really pumped up his weight loss as his metabolism was kind of stuck there for awhile. I'm really happy with his progress.
