Kimba needs to lose 5-10kg but I'm really struggling to get her to budge it. She is on a strict diet for heath reasons and is not given anything outside of it. All dogs are fed separately.
She is even locked outside now whenever we go out as we caught her stealing and burying food.
I take her for a walk around the block every day and at least every second day I take her and Bear out for an off leash walk/run or swim.
I thought it was ok until I really started watching what she was doing. She will run from the car and play fight with Bear for a minute & then I usually stand where Bear is playing to supervise him and she wanders off and just sniffs and rolls in things. Bear loves to aimlessly run so he usually has my attention as I know she doesn't get into trouble.
I tried calling her over to us and she just stands with me. She hates water so has no interest in swimming and doesn't play with us 'just because' like Bear does.
She does not play with toys, balls or sticks (absolutely zero interest in them). She does have a high prey drive and used to chase rabbits on our walks but I have stopped her from doing that.
The only way I think I can get her to lose weight is to take her for long walks but I'm still recovering from a badly sprained ankle so its not an option at the moment.
I've looked into a dog walker but there is nothing suitable in the area as they are all younger kids/teens. She is a 30kg dog and I can't risk someone younger not having control over her.
Are there any ways to help her get more active and lose some weight?
