Controlling your dog's weight
This is something you have all heard me preach about and I can only hope that the majority of you will take this serious as we are literally killing our pets with food!! My pets treats are one nibblet of their regular food. And believe me they are just as happy as when I was rewarding them with biscuits (very high in calories I might add)! What humans cannot seem to get is that for your pet, it is not the actual reward itself but rather the fact that you are happy with their behavior.
Chubby canines can be cute, but being overweight is bad for a dog's health too. Dr. Ernie Ward, author of the new book "Chow Hounds" visited Good Day with some tips on keeping your dog at a healthy weight.
Dr. Ward will be signing copies of his book on Thursday, April 8, at the Barnes & Noble at 11802 N. Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa. The signing starts at 7 p.m. For more information, call Barnes & Noble at (813) 962-6446.
