6. Enlist the cooperation of other family members.
It does no good to restrict your dog’s high calorie treats if other family members are giving him treats under the table. Discuss with everyone in your family the importance of getting your overweight dog’s weight under control. Enlist their cooperation in supporting you in this effort. Make sure your family has access to healthy treats such as apples and bones to give your dog.
