How to get a 13 year old Westie in shape (diet, exercise, etc)?
He's generally very energetic (although because he's getting older and has more weight, he gets tired easier, but he loves running around the house/zoomies, playing fetch like a mad man, etc), and we've gotten a bit more lax on his snacks/treats over the past few years so that won't have helped.
Currently, we only walk him a few times a week - mainly because we live in the UK and it rains about 4/7 days a week, and he can't stand being out in the rain (he hates water lmao), and when we do walk him, he runs/jogs and barks constantly for the first 5-10 minutes and then by the time we've been out for 20 minutes, we literally have to drag him home he's walking that slowly.
Usually taking him out once a day will knock him out for the rest of the day (lol) so we can't really take him out in short bursts a few times a day yet.
We also keep a small bowl of biscuits out all day (he doesn't eat biscuits all at once, he'll have a few every hour or so), and at 6pm he'll have 1/4 a can of tripe (or any other meat we have left over, just for a change).
He has a dental stick chew every night at 9pm (mainly for his gums and as a snack) and we've been trying to cut out giving him any human food in between meals.
Anything else we can do? Any ideas?
