thanks you guys. her weight is good as far as i can tell (feel the ribs, but not see them). i had also thought about switching the food as well, so maybe ill give that a try.
she gets a couple treats a day, but as i said ive tried to be a good parent and watch her spoilings. again, my friends throw treats at their dogs like theyre getting paid to do so....mostly to stop unwanted behavior haha.
it makes sense that shes wired as a working dog. i feel like that lines everything right up. if only she could earn money for the work shes driven to do haha.
thanks again guys.
