WE DON'T DO TRICKS JUST FABULOUS TREATS!

CO-FOUNDER OF LONDON DOG WEEK ANEKA JOHNSON TALKS TREATS, WELLBEING + HER FRENCHIE CHUBBS WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY.

 

London Dog Week, the Wellness Edition, has come and gone but the memories live on. Meeting new and reuniting with pup’s and paw’rents has been amazing. Planning an event in a pandemic was no walk in the park but against all odds, we managed to make it happen, as two years without London Dog Week would not have been paw-some! From Paw-lates to the Paw Parlour, the positivity was amazing.

 

IN TREATS WE TRUST

London Dog Week is not complete without treats! But not any old treats, only the good stuff for you puppers! All week we gave the dogs of London treats from Different Dog, which are natural dried meat treats that contain no nasties and they were a hit with you doggos during the week, not only did your dogs eat over 500 packs, they went tail over paws for them!

 

The treats come in two flavours, chicken and liver and have oregano sprinkled over them. Oregano does not only taste and smell yummy but is high in antioxidants providing immune system support for dogs. When treats taste great and support the health of your dog then it is a double thumbs-up.

My Frenchie Chubbs usually favours broccoli or sweet potato over packet-based treats but he went bonkers for Different Dog treats, he loves them so much that i actually have to hide the pack from him. 

 

Different Dog is a treat triumph and  a good example that keeping it simple, natural and well-intentioned will win with the woof woofs. Like anything, treats should be eaten in moderation and too many treats on top of your dog’s food will be sure to give them a little more jelly on their belly and obesity amongst dogs is growing at a rapid rate, so we want to strike a balance and this is something I know all about with Chubbs.

 

KEEPING CHUBBS TRIM

Chubbs was very overweight and within 12 months I was able to take him from 24KG to 16KG and this was a hard journey as I was experimenting a lot and wish I had a good quality low-calorie food already tailored for overweight dogs that was not kibble, recently I discovered that Different Dog does just this with their new Health + range. Hurray!

 

Time is not something I have a lot of and preparing chubbs meals every day feels like a daily culinary challenge and now the Different Dog Health + range is available I will be checking this out, not only to save time in food preparation but also to sustain Chubbs new leaner frame. As I have noticed now he has lost weight I am prone to giving him a little extra food, I need to be careful!

 

Different Dog Health + range has a waistline reducing recipe called Keep – Me -Trim Turkey, which is made to be low in calories but high in yumminess, which is a perfect combination!

 

Sustaining Chubbs waistline has become my new obsession as since he is trimmer he’s happier and healthier, so we are excited to start our Different Dog Journey, to help keep his waist snatched and his tail wagging, we will keep you posted on his journey.

 

Admittingly, I was in denial for a long time that Chubbs was obese, I would say things like he is ‘ big boned’ and he’s just bigger than the average Frenchie! Wrong he was overweight and I had to face facts and take action. Here are some of the hard realities that kicked me into action to do the best for Chubbs health.

 

OBESITY FACTS 

  • Obesity is the most common preventable disease in dogs.
  • Approximately 25-30% of the general canine population is obese, with 40-45% of dogs aged 5-11 years old weighing in higher than normal.
  • Obesity shortens a dog’s life and makes them more likely to develop disease.
  • Excess fat negatively impacts a dog’s health and longevity.
