Dawn Watson's Pet Tip of the Week: Take a Hike


Dawn O Watson/CNBNews Contributor


Maybe you and Fido have been munching out during this time of quarantine and now you are both a little ‘rounder’. There is an easy fix for getting rid of that extra weight—take a hike!

Walking-fat-dog-man-hat-34449095Walking around your neighborhood is a good way to enrich the bond you share with your family. And keeping a safe distance is easy if you keep moving! Keep a mask handy in case someone breaches the six-foot restriction, but most folks are compliant with the ‘new normal’ and will not approach you.

Keep mealtimes pleasant and simple. Feed your dog two small meals per day and a few doggie treats. Refrain from feeding him from the table so that he will not become accustomed to bad habits. This is the time for you to treat your dog to attention, not over-feeding!

If you have questions about this or any other dog-related issue, please text or call me at 856.981.8957 or email There is never a fee for phone or email consultation.

Wado udohiyu, (thank you very much in the Cherokee language)
