Skittles is our lab she is quite overweight. She steals food off the counter. Her latest snatch was a batch of gingerbread cookies that had just been iced. The real issue is she eats all of the dog food. We tried separating them when they eat but Cowie the jack a poo will eat a few bites then walks away. He does not care if the other dog comes over to eat his food. Most of the time he just walks away. The vet had us switch the lab to a weight control dog food. The lab won't go for walks. She walks around the perimeter of our house. I have tried walking her a few houses down but she refuses she sits down. Any advice on how to get her moving. If everybody in the family goes for a walk with her including the other dog she will walk.
