Is My Australian Shepherd Overweight?
My Aussie Bella is 3.5 years old and weighs between 19 and 20kg, she is a bit short for her breed but very broad. We do agility and frisbee comps with her and she seems to be exhausted quickly.
Someone said today that she was too fat and I was so shocked to hear that. We feed her one cup of kibble a day mixed with some chicken hearts or other chicken meat.
What is your opinion and what can I do to help? Is this just how she is built?
When I bathe her she looks so much thinner, so I don't know if its just her coat...
Please help :(
