With a unique blend of problem-solving skills, cool vehicles and lots of cute doggy humor, the PAW Patrol works together on high-stakes rescue missions to protect the Adventure Bay community.

Creating a Healthy Routine for Your Dog + FREE #PerfectWeight Printable Calendar

Creating structure and routine is an important part of keeping your pet healthy and happy. I’m really lucky to get to work from home, so Daisy and I have a very well-established daily routine. For example, we go for a walk before breakfast every morning, and then a trip to check the mailbox around mid-day. Checking the mail is Daisy’s favorite thing, since I let her carry a piece of mail back home and give her a dental chew as a reward for her ‘hard work’. In the late afternoon, I usually take a break from work to play hide and seek, fetch or another of our favorite games.

Creating a healthy routine doesn’t have to be complicated. Add small daily activities that both you and your dog enjoy and it won’t seem like a chore. Speaking of chores, we schedule certain activities for the weekends, like bath time, nail trimming and cleaning Daisy’s ears. We also try to have regularly scheduled play dates for Daisy, both for the benefits of socialization as well as for the added exercise.

Another part of our routine is tracking Daisy’s weight and measuring her food. It’s important to measure and track treats, too. We worked with Daisy’s veterinarian to determine her weight goal and the right amount of food and treats to maintain that weight. If you don’t schedule and track treats and food, it’s easy to overdo it without realizing it. Just one little cookie for a 20lb dog is like the equivalent of an average size woman eating a cheeseburger! Don’t believe me? Go checkout this Treat Translator Tool to learn more.

Helping Your Dog Achieve and Maintain Their #PerfectWeight

Is your dog overweight? Finding out and learning what to do about it is an important part of being a pet parent. It’s our job to keep our fur kids healthy, and that includes helping them maintain a healthy weight since this adds to quality of life and life expectancy.

How do you know if your dog is at their healthy weight? Start by checking out this video from Dr. Ashley Gallagher:

Did you watch it? If so you might have been surprised or even shocked to learn that more than 50% of pets are overweight…I certainly didn’t know that!

Dr. Ashley also mentioned this Healthy Pet Weight Tool where you can go to check your dog’s weight online. Be sure to go give that a try.

And the big takeaway from the video is to talk to your dog’s veterinarian for professional medical advice on whether your pet is overweight. It’s important to their overall health and wellness. If your vet says your dog needs to lose some weight, they will tell you the steps you need to take, including diet and exercise.

They may also recommend a special weight loss food like Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight. With a breakthrough blend of natural ingredients, prebiotic fibers for gentle digestion and 100% precisely balanced nutrition, 70% of cats and dogs who used Science Diet Perfect Weight lost weight within 10 weeks.
