Welcome to the second installment of the Biggest Loser - Pet Edition!
I have cut way back to almost no treats. Addie is clearly missing them. She has never been real treat motivated, but I did notice a difference during training. When we went to obedience class last week Addie was drooling at the smell of a tiny little treat that she will occasionally get during training class. She typically does not do this. Poor baby!
It sure does feel longer than only one week! Keep up the good work contestants!
Tip of the Week
I found a web site that is pretty helpful. It is hosted by Science Diet. They provide:
- Online tools to track your pets weight loss
- Helpful tips and e-tools
- Exercise suggestions
- Pet fit challenge - we signed up and it shows all of the other pups out there that are trying to lose weight
Personally, I don't use Science Diet (this is not a paid plug for them), I use Royal Canin but the site is really cool! I would recommend that if you use this site, do not just go by what their prebuilt weight loss generator suggests. For Addie it seems like it suggested a lot of weight for her to lose. We will be watching her weight loss along with our vet to ensure that she is kept healthy.
