The right weight

Good nutrition is important. You can see very clearly whether an adult dog gets too much, too little or just enough to eat.


Underweight (uitgemergeld - mager)

If you see his ribs, vertebrae and pelvic bones, and you feel no fat on his bones, a dog gets too little to eat.


Overweight (overgewicht - vetzucht)

Can you not feel his ribs, do you see greasy ridges over his back and the base of his tail? Can you not distinguish a waist behind the ribs when you look from above and do not have a tummy tuck in the profile?


Ideal weight (optimaal)

You can easily feel his ribs. The waist can easily be seen behind the ribs, when looking from above. A belly fold can clearly be seen from the side.
