Show Off Your Dog's Waistline: Pavlov

Fluffy fur can still have a waistline underneath!

Name: Pavlov
Sex: female
Breed: Australian Labradoodle
Age: 1

Pavlov is an Australian Labradoodle who celebrated her first birthday March 22. 

She comes from a long line of therapy dogs. She recently obtained her Canadian Good Neighbour designation from the Canadian Kennel Club (the Canine Good Citizen Test in the US by the AKC).  She graduated from Therapy Dog school and I am hoping that she will be able to take the Therapy Dog registration exam in the near future.

"My people are quite strict: no food from the table- EVER! I eat the food my vet recommends, as there is a lot of research to demonstrate it's effectiveness, and I get freeze dried liver when I am going to school, learning new tricks, or practicing for my Therapy Dog registration exam."

Dr. Alexandra Segal has a practice in Clinical Neuropsychology and Clinical Psychology and has recently completed training in Animal Assisted Therapy.  Her hope is to integrate Pavlov in her Clinical Practice. You can find Pavlov on Twitter.

It's your turn!

Take a photo of your dog's waistline (and dig up some old "before" photos for comparison, if you have any!), and share your story about how you're keeping them fit. If you have a blog, blog it, if not, email me and get your story featured on Dawg Business.
