Advice and tips? I'm not really sure how to start him off. He's been free fed most his life until very recently but I don't know how accurate their measurements are. Most importantly he's very very sedentary. He plays with Nard some and will trot around outside but he never gets hard exercise. At this point, he really loves playing rough house, he's so so about ball, and loves tugging. His endurance is pretty bad. I had him running around the yard last night and he chased me pretty slowly and was panting after a couple laps. He hates the water. I'm not sure if just cutting rations and getting him going to the park with us is going to be a good start. It's got to be better than what he does now as far as exercise goes. There's a good hill at the park we could go up and down and there's also a moat at my dad's place that we could go up and down. Maybe get a few tug and ball sessions in a day or some short leashed walks a few times a day? He needs to lose a substantial amount before I want to try jumping him. I've also even thought of having him swim in the bath tub a couple times a week. He's on TOTW (the fish one) and has some allergies that prevent him from being on much else. Most his issues seem to be related to chicken. He almost always needs to be on a duck based or salmon based food. He did go on raw when he was showing and did well on it but I wasn't the one feeding him that. I'm wondering if he'd be okay on premade raw if I used the duck formulas and then maybe move on to some other non-chicken protein? Or just keep him on TOTW and ration his portions more.
