A) Diet: Once your dog’s target weight and rate of loss have been determined, her daily food portions will be calculated.
Allowable treat suggestions are incorporated.
B) Exercise: Just as in people, frequent, sustained exercise is an important part of a weight loss program. Leash walking,
ball playing, etc., is needed, as letting your dog loose in the yard rarely provides sufficient exercise. We will work with you to
develop an exercise plan that both you and your dog can accomplish. Twice weekly water exercise sessions serve to jump start the
process, because one minute of swimming is equal to 5 to 15 minutes of walking and thus serves to increase overall fitness, endurance
and cardiopulmonary output. Furthermore, the buoyancy of water reduces stress on joints and enables overweight dogs to get started
A vet clearance is required for dogs entering the program to ensure they are healthy enough to participate.
