I know there's been a lot of talk already about this, but am looking for specific advice.
I think Jewel is overweight. I think she could lose 8-10 pounds. We feed her Nature's Domain from Costco. The Salmon and sweet potato version (336kcal/cup). We feed her twice a day for a total of 2.5 cups. She currently weighs 60 pounds. She was 40 pounds when she was rescued. I think she should be in the 50 pound range. She doesn't get treats. She gets about 60-90 minutes of on leash walking a day and 90 minutes of off leash hiking a day. I can't seem to get her to lose weight. I am toying with switching to feeding raw. Also, trying to hike with some weight on her. How do you guys with conditioned dogs get that muscle tone? Is it from tug/flirt pole etc?
Here are some pics. The first one is from when she was first rescued and under weight.
The others are her fat pics.
