How do I help my Dachshund lose some weight?


  1. RoseTea says:

    WOA! dont starve your Dachie! Cut the ammount of food you feed her little by little (until you get to half her normal ammount and give her the weight management dog food). Make her excersize! even if she is not much of a runner(because of spinal problems that run in Dachie blood), still find something to do for excersize. Any little thing will help. when she returns to her normal weight, start to feed her more and more every day, but not abrubtly, keep her excersize habits up and dont let her gain weight again,it puts too much strain on her back and can result in serious injuries that can only be treated (not cured) with vetrinary help (thats going to be expensive).
    Good Luck

    Stop feeding him. Starvation is key.

  3. Tea says:

    Cut out all treats and put her on a reduced calorie food such as a food that says "weight management". Try letting her swim because that will be great exercise but have very low impact on her joints.

    she needs more exercise. take her on a 15-30 min walk once a day and see if that helps

    There are a thousand different ways and just as many reasons to lose weight and all of them would do no good for you if you didn’t have the mindset to actually lose the weight. I can’t count how many times I asked myself how I could lose my weight, just wasting my time talking and never acting on anything. Then last New Year’s came by and I promised myself that I was going to lose all the weight it took to see my abs. I started out weighing 298 pounds. A few weeks passed and I tried a lot of crappy diets and fake fat loss pills that did nothing for me but empty my wallet and made me ask myself if I was stupid. I eventually came across a program at and I watched their video on weight loss and decided to try it out and see what it could offer me since nothing else was working. Now, it didn’t shave off 60 pounds the first week like everything else guarantees but those things didn’t either. They promised me to lose weight fast BUT only if I worked hard for it. So I followed it and had amazing results but it was far from being easy and I remember when I first started to lose weight I was looking for easy fixes like diet pills and let me tell you from experience that they do not work. I bought the best and most expensive diet pills and they did make me lose weight but like 1 pound every 2 months. That means it would take 1 year to lose 6 pounds and that was just something I didn’t enjoy. 8 months later after following I now weigh in at 170 pounds. I had lost 128 pounds in 8 months through my hard work and dedication. I’m now looking at my abs for the first time in my life and I’m very proud of it. That hasn’t changed today either, I’m still proud and I keep it that way. The most important thing to remember is you can never give up and gather the resolve to finally do what you want. I wish you the best of luck in your journey to lose weight and hope you stick with it.
