Walking for Dog Weight Loss

By Ernest Ward, DVM

What type of dog walking equipment should I use?MyPetED: Walk your dog for 30 minutes every day for healthy dog weight loss.

  • Your safest choice is a head halter (Gentle Leader, etc.) or walking harness (Ultra Paws Easy Walkin' Harness, Gentle Leader Easy Walk, etc.). Look for wide, soft, padded straps and breathable materials.
  • A leash of a relatively short length is preferable to keep your dog close for a steady pace. If you use a retractable leash, make sure it’s not more than 12 feet long.
  • For long winter walks in cold climates, use protective booties and dog coats.
  • Always carry water for both you and your dog.

What pace should I set for my overweight dog?

  • Plan to walk briskly from the beginning of the walk.
  • Draw your leash close - generally within 2-4 feet of your body - and set off at a pace you feel comfortable sustaining, about a 12-15 minute per mile pace.
  • The key is to keep it up!
  • If your dog sits or refuses to walk, you may have to return home and try again another time.

How long should we walk to help reduce dog obesity?MyPetED Image: Walk your dog 7 days a week for weight loss

For most overweight dogs or obese dogs , providing they have normal heart and lung function and no other pre-existing medical conditions, we recommend starting with 30-minute walks at least five times a week, 7 days a week. Here’s a sample schedule:

Week 1:   30 minutes per day (10 minutes brisk followed by 20 minutes casual pace)

Week 2:   30 minutes per day (15 minutes brisk followed by 15 minutes casual pace)

Week 3:   30 minutes per day (20 minutes brisk followed by 10 minutes casual pace)

Week 4:   35-40 minutes per day (30 minutes brisk followed by 5-10 minutes casual pace)

Week 5+: 35-60 minutes per day (Try to do two 20-30 minute walks per day: 15-25 minutes brisk followed by 5 minutes casual pace)

See The Best Exercise for Dogs for other ideas.

How often should I weigh my dog?

  • We recommend having your dog weighed at the veterinary clinic at least once a month, ...
