This issue hits close to home for me. We have an English Labrador, Kylie that has never been one to want to play or walk. It has caused great frustration as we know she needs to lose weight-- and honestly, it broke my heart last time she was weighed in Sept. and hit her all time high weight.
She has never liked to play fetch, swim or go for walks-- I know-- she's a Lab, right? I think someone forgot to tell her that. :)
But we made a real big effort these past three months. One thing I discovered is I just have to let her walk at her own pace-- not what I think she should. I also let her walk off leash on a path and wooded area around our home, which she is much happier about. That, and a reduced calorie food I'm pretty sure she is losing some weight. I see a definite lovely curve in her hip area again. We have the big "weigh-in" today and I'm hoping for good news.
She is such a great dog and I want her around for as long as possible. Wish us luck! And thanks for the free eguide-- I'd like to get the barking under control too as that has always been an issue.
