Just switch her dog food and keep her active. We had a dog that gained weight, but we switched to a "diet" food for a while, kept her active, and she lost the weight. You just have to make sure she likes the food too. If they enjoy the food and enjoy the time they spend with you, then it's in no way hurting them...only benefiting the both of you.

Limit down her food bowl :) example: if you give her 10 ounces, give her only 8 or 9.

Give her healthier dog food with natural ingredients. Also go on a walk for about half and hour.

We have one of those apple-headed chubbs too. He's about 9, fat, and acts like he's starving to death when he's around food. I don't have the answer, but I'll be watching this to see if anyone does..before the stinky guy explodes.

Our Pablo is a real badazz. He doesn't back down from anything. I think he'd rather die than look like he's scared. When he has his mean face on, I swear he looks like a vampire bat. I can't take him serious. He's ridiculous. I have to constantly mess with him.
