Did you know more than 50% of pets are overweight pets! A healthy routine can help get your dog back on the path to a perfect weight. Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight food offers a 10 Week Turnaround plan whereby 70% of pets lost weight in the first 10 weeks! A healthy food with a blend of natural ingredients, prebiotic fibers, and 100% balanced nutrition from Hill’s can play a large role in dog weight loss.
Our daily routine is really made up of three parts:
- Lots of Lovin’
- Fun & Exercise
- Healthy Foods
Download the 10 Week Turnaround Calendar to track your dogs routine! The basis of our daily routine is working for food. We very rarely get a meal or snack without first doing an activity such as walking or practicing commands. We’ve learned to earn our food. As an example, we walk or run first in the morning, and then get breakfast. If you need tips on activities, Tips & Tools from Hills can help you out.
The love part is easy and happens on and off all day long. If you look at our day journal, you can see we are also quite active. Walking is a wonderful activity and it can be done anywhere, anytime. We tend to walk fast for a better workout.
In my routine list, did you notice all the snacks we have during a day? We don’t eat a big cookie each snack time. We choose healthy low calorie treats and sometimes just a piece of apple or banana is our snack. Snacks pack on calories, so you need to watch what you eat! Check out the Treat Translator!
When it comes to the main meals, ALWAYS measure your food! We eat together as a pack. We wait for all the food to be ready and don’t eat until we are told it is ready. The photo above was taken merely to demonstrate measuring out food.
Don’t wait for tomorrow! Start your dog on a healthy routine today!
