    as horrid as it sounds if you only offer him dry food he will eventually eat it!

    25 x 30 + 70 = 820

    I certainly wouldn't advocate changing your dog from a natural one to a commercial dry dog biscuit or anything like that, BG, as I prefer a dog to eat meat, bones etc.

    Obviously he is being exercised well each day, and can I assume you are both walking at a good pace?

    My question would be to ask what type of meat you are feeding him, please? What ratio of fat is on/in the meat? And also what type of bones?

    BTW, that is grams Judge, but it is a guide only, as you will see noted on the back of commercial dry dog food bags. That amount will differ from dog to dog depending on their metabolism, their level of exercise, age, needs etc etc...

    Spot on.

    Ok here we go. The average Staffy is about 17kg, according to you, your dog is about 10 kgs overweight.
    Buy a good quality kibble(like Pedigree). Don't do this suddenly, slowly introduce it. Judging by the weight you say your dog is, he should be eating about 880 calories a day. I'd say 1-2 cups(250-500 mls) of kibble would be enough. If he is hungry, he will eat. Otherwise one raw egg mixed through it should be enough to entice him. Eggs are good for their coat so thats an added bonus.
    If he gobbles his food, thats fine. It doesnt mean he's starving, it means he isn't being over fed! Don't keep feeding till he wont eat anymore!
    Keep up with you're daily walking and keep treats on the lower end of the scale. Give it about 3 weeks then get back to us and let us know how he's going!

    PS. PLLEEEAAAASSSSSEEEEEE DE-SEX HIM!

    I just read your introduction and you said one dog is fit and the other is fat.
    Are they eating the same amounts and getting the same amount of exercise?
