I would start walking him twice a day. Morning and night. Exercise is definatley the missing ingrediant here. You have small dog syndrome. Who cares if he doesn't like exercise! Make him do it. I guarantee he will fall in love with his walks and he will feel better and behave better. Not mention he will lose a few pounds.


He's 8yrs. old...he's a grandpa in dog years!! :oops:

OK so along with exercise...which we've resolved to do, we'll add some veggies! I think he'll like that, because he might think he's getting people food!
Part of the no-walk mentality is we have a huge yard in the country and nobody really needs a walk because they play their hearts out, in the huge yard outside. Except he hates being outside...!
