Dog Obesity | SDRA

It may come as a surprise that humans aren’t the only ones suffering from an obesity problem in this country. Pets, especially dogs, are also more likely now than ever before to be overweight.

Think about all the things you carry when going on a long trip to make yourself more comfortable. You might have a book, a hat, some snacks, a neck pillow – some people even carry a change of socks in their backpack! While a dog might not need as much as you do, they’re still sensitive and intelligent animals that do better with some creature comforts.

Training Your Dog | SDRA
