And speaking of obese dogs as I was, it isn't just overfeeding that causes the problem.
Giving large active dogs enough exercise to keep them happy, trim and out of trouble is not always easy.
A leisurely walk around the neighborhood may not be enough to keep the energetic dog from destroying everything in the house.
A possible solution for low energy people (and by people I mean men) who insist on having a large active dog breed, but whose idea of exercise is to surf through TV channels, Go-Go Dog Pal might be an answer.
Go-Go Dog Pal is a remote controlled disc on wheels that dogs will chase because they are programmed to chase anything that moves fast even if it smells like plastic and small batteries. You can change it to look like a gopher, squirrel or anything dogs like to chase. The dog won’t care what it looks like, just that chasing it is so much fun.
It goes up to 35 miles an hour and costs $300.
