Hello everyone. First post in GSD forums. Came to gather some information on why my 3 year old GSD cant seem to lose this weight he gained through winter. I wasn't measuring his food for a while, and excercise was lacking no doubt. It is clear he gained a few extra pounds. I started measuring his food again, and am feeding him the correct amount as far as i know. I have cut his portions down even more. He is now getting 3 cups/day. And every day I take him for a run. The run is usually about 1.5-2 km. He doesn't really "run" though. He will gallop, but rarey have I ever seen him run full speed. He usually just walks. He runs behind me as I drive the truck(on dirt/grass).
I am worried about his weight. There is definitely extra meat on him. What can I do to help him lose this weight? I am currently switching him over from Royal Canin adult food to Canadian Naturals food.
He was looking like this in July 2012-
Don't have a good recent photo but he is not that slim anymore. he has always been a big boy.
