Hi guys,

I weighed JoJo yesterday and was totally gob smacked to find out she weighs 17.8 kilo (39 pounds)! I knew she was heavy to pick up and looks a little on the round side but that was a total shock! As you may or may not know she is a beagle cross with a cocker. I really need advice on how to get the weight off her. Her current food and exercise schedule is:

20 minute walk
breaky - half cup dry biscuits with one raw egg
40 minute free run/walk
dinner - handful of boiled rice, half a chicken thigh fillet & 3 chicken necks
treats - 1 chicken strip

I'm not sure what I can cut out without starving her? She will be starting agilty this Saturday so I am hoping the extra running around will help.

Any advise you can give would be a HUGE help.

Thank you

She just keeps getting bigger! That's the only fluctuation. She's only 9 months old and she cant even keep up with my 15 month old cocker. I'm just not sure what to do?

Thanks guys. I give the egg to make her coat shiny and also cause she seems to like it. Will cut to egg down to maybe a sunday treat? More JoJo is over weight and I cant keep weight on Jesie!

Today is the day that JoJo and I are on a diet! We have a chat last night and I explained that she has rolls of fat so she must go on a diet. I also explained that mummy has a few too many rolls aswell so i will diet with her. We increased our walk/run this morning from 20 mins to 35 mins and she was given 1/4 cup of biscuits for breaky plus a chicken neck. Tonight I'm planning on doing our normal walk and then she'll have mashed pumpkin and one chicken neck for tea.

Wish me luck!

Re: egg alternative

Thanks silleb!

We went for a BIG free run around the park tonight and do you know for the first time ever she was able to keep up with my cocker, Jesie! Jesie I am convinced has ADHD so Jodie has never been able to out run her or keep up but tonight she did! I'm so excited!!!! Even my Mum commented that she was looking better!

Its given me the incentive I need to keep going! Look out world, me and my babies are barging through!

Thanks again guys for the tips. I've tried the sardine's and she loves them! I can see that she's lost a little bit of weight which is great! We started Agility on Saturday and do you know she was BRILLIANT! We've never done it before and she was full of confidence. Straight through the tunnel, over the jumps and across the A frame. I was and still am so very proud of her. The Agility will help with the weight loss aswell.
