Ive got Sawyer down to 52 pounds. But I would like to get him down to 48 as he still a touch over weight. But I feel like im having a hard time getting him to loose those last 4 pounds. He's been at 52-51 for awhile now and but we haven't gotten past that.
Currently he's getting 1 1/3 cups of food a day (1/2 in the morning and 1/2+1/3 in the evening). Currently im trying him on Canidae Pure Sky. I try not to give him to many treats, he gets zukes mini's and milk bones. Though he has been getting more milk bones then normal since ive started college (this week) since I give him one before I leave and as a bed time cookie. But it hast seemed to affect his weight to much.

Is my best bet to cut down on treats a bit and try and get more exercise in? He mostly runs in the yard and plays with toys for exercise, since the weathers been to hot to go out during the day and doesn't cool off until its to dark to go out. Normally when we do have the chance or its not to hot to walk we go for about 2 miles. I also have his backpack that im working to condition him with, would that help carrying stuff on walks to loose weight?
