    Hmmmm, well judging by the photos he doesn't seem particulaly big...

    Any photos of him standing up?




    Sorry to go on about the weight, I just see soooo many overweight dogs everyday at work and it makes me sad that the owners don't realise the health issues and decreased life expectancy associated with extra fat.
    Im sure it annoys the rest of the forum

    Oh, and they are soooo cute. The one of them sleeping in the first one is gorgeous

    That's ok, I wouldn't have said he was overweight but I never really thought about what we were told becaue he doesn't look overweight, but I haven't seen an overweight amstaff so don't exactly have anything to compare to.

    This is not the best but I ducked outside and got one.....

    Oh and thanks for the cute comment, we certainly think they are but may be just a little biased, LOL

    Your dogs are gorgeous. I love black dogs with a bit of white.
    I wouldn't leave bones or high value treats around unsupervised.
    When home you can give a cold carrot for him to munch on or there are teething type chews that you can freeze which will help sooth the gums.
    You could always practice some training in the backyard to stimulate their minds.
    And like others have said, if you don't want it chewed put it away.
    These dogs love their people more than anything.

    I noticed in one or 2 pics that they have correction chains on.
    Incase you don't know you should never leave them on.

    Well I did think that and I got regular collars, when I put them on they both scruffed at them really bad, I loosened them but that didn't seem to help, put them back on and they were happy again.... so I figured it couldn't hurt. I guess it can?

    I also can't get him to wear a halti leader.... he goes absolutely mental.

    He is just under 33kg. We had a trip to the vet for some midgee bites. Also purchased a treat ball and a kong. Oh and some mossie repellant.

    That makes a lot more sense! He looks a good weight!

    Thanks Aussie, he certainly didn't look overweight to us, but like I said, I had nothing to compare to (other than pictures on the net, hadn't seen another grown one in real life).

    She loves the Kong.... the treat ball intrigued him for 10 minutes, LOL. I'm sure when bored though it will do it's job. Also bought a different treat ball that lets the bikkies drop out when rolled, so now I can rotate to stop them getting complacent.

    Thanks so much for your tips guys.

    Oh and on the collars, someone showed me today, the same chain kind of collar but it's fixed, not a check chain, so in those we invested as well.
