Best Ways to Fatten up a dog

Wait Until the Dog’s Hungry

When your dog has been running or playing and hasn’t eaten in a while, she will be ready to eat like a beast. Waiting for the right time to eat when she’s actually hungry will develop her appetite. If you feed the dog all the time even when she’s not hungry skipping the food will become a habit. So, present the food at the right time when she indirectly asks for it. She’ll probably eat more when she eats at once and gain weight.

An overfed dog is not a healthy dog. Feeding your dog too many calories at once will make the dog gain a lot of weight in a short while which can be very dangerous for the dog. Start feeding the dog, calorie-dense foods slowly. Make a healthy weight gain goal and plan to increase the dog’s weight by 0.25-2 pounds each month depending on your dog’s age, size, and breed.
