Also at least an hours walking a day to help build up muscle tone. he is now 11.6 at last weigh in a couple of weeks ago and he is a big cav.
At 30 gms brian you should be seeing weight fly off. Its hard work and painful to watch what i do if harley is being a pest and begging for food is give him a lovely treat of a bath or a nice long walk usually followed by a bath and hopefully its nearly time for his next meal by then.
He also used to refuse things like pigs ears and really hard hide chews, now he loves them because basically he knows there is nothing else. Be careful with treats, you know those gravy bones, will if you follow the feeding guide 5 of those is the total of harley daily allowance, he used to get that on top of his food and any leftovers so he gets maybe a gravey bone a week now until the packet is gone then ill not be buying anymore. di
