Healthy Pet, Healthy Life: The 5 Things We Do Everyday #PerfectWeight

This post is sponsored by Hill’s. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Hill’s® Science Diet® Perfect Weight 10 Week Turn Around, but To Dog With Love only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.


Creating a routine (and sticking with it!) is one of those things you hear all the experts talking about -- whether it's an exercise and nutrition routine to help you lose or maintain weight, a bedtime routine for optimal rest or a beauty routine for the perfect complexion!

And when it comes to a routine for health and well being, it turns out what's good for you is also good for your pet. 


I jotted down these five things that we try to incorporate into our everyday routine for a healthy, happy lifestyle. Take a look and see how many you do everyday!

I know that sticking to a healthy routine is easier said than done! Sometimes the hardest thing is to just get started.

Did you know that 50 percent of pets are overweight? Seems like they might need some help in getting started on a healthy routine. Hill's has come up with a way to help pet parents get started with its 10 Week Turnaround plan, a routine of healthy eating with Hill’s Science Diet Adult Perfect Weight Formulas, containing real chicken as the No. 1 ingredient and a breakthrough blend of natural ingredients.


























As a small dog owner (and a smallish person myself!) I know how easy it is to have those calories add up in a hurry. Small and toy breeds make up 40 percent of the dog population.  So Hill's has also come out with a Perfect Weight formula especially for small dogs

Hill's Science Diet Perfect Weight is available at your vet or favorite pet specialty store. It's also available at Pet360 with an additional discount on autoship.

When you're starting any kind of routine, it can be helpful to write things down! Download this 10 Week Turnaround calendar to help you keep track of your dog's weight and activity level. 


Looking for some ideas on healthy activities you can do with your pet? These tips and tools from Hill's can help provide some inspiration.

Here are a few things we love to do!

Running with friends

Exercise is always more fun when you have an activity partner. Rocco loves his playmates and we also like planning walks with our neighbors and their dogs.


Playing agility

Agility is great exercise for both you and your pup, and loads of fun, too.  One thing we always try to do is warm up and cool down and stretch so we can stay healthy for the long haul.



We also love to hike, train tricks and play with interactive toys. And, of course, we make sure we have time for the all important snuggle time! Rocco loves to wedge himself behind me or drape himself across my lap.

What activities are part of your regular healthy living routine?
