Warning Check with your veterinarian before putting your dog on a diet. Step 1: Buy dog food Buy diet dog food. Your dog will take to their diet more easily if you don't cut down their intake too much. Tip Look for low-fat food with plenty of digestible carbohydrates. Step 2: Buy diet snacks If your dog is used to snacking at certain times of the day or as a reward for certain activities, offer them diet treats. Tip Avoid feeding dogs table scraps. Step 3: Exercise Consult your vet to create an exercise plan for your dog. Instead of letting them outside a couple of times a day, take them for vigorous walks. It will benefit you both! Step 4: Have regular weigh-ins Talk to your vet about coming in for regular weigh-ins to make sure your dog is not losing too much weight too quickly. Did You Know? In 2001 an English Mastiff weighing 286 pounds, appropriately named "Moose," was named the largest dog in America.
