Pet obesity is the No.1 health problem affecting pets in North America with up to 50% of dogs being overweight or obese and the rate is increasing similar to human obesity. Ensuring that dogs get adequate daily exercise is more important than ever, but unfortunately over half of the owners of overweight and obese dogs think their pets have an ideal body condition!
Pooch Partners’ goal is simple: to help you give your canine companion the daily activity required to maintain a healthy weight or lose unwanted pounds.
