Did you know that 1 in 3 dogs are overweight?
A combination of lack of exercise and overfeeding can result in your dog becoming overweight. What you feed your dog is vital for their mental wellbeing and physical health, and so it’s important to consider the quality of food you are giving to them. Even if you are feeding your dog the recommended amount, if the food is of poor quality, you aren’t doing them any favours.
Along with their diet, exercise is extremely important for a dog as it’s one of the key ways in which dogs develop mentally. There’s endless activities you can participate in with your dog - it doesn’t have to just be their daily walks.
Indoor activity can be great too. However, be sure to limit activities such as running up and down stairs with your dog as this can lead to hip problems - especially in puppies and larger breeds.
From canicross to bikejouring - there's an endless list of fun outdoor activities you can participate in with your dog and Sainsbury's Money Matters have produced the following infographic with some great exercise ideas.
