The new tie-in from ‘It’s Me or the Dog’, on the hottest canine subject of the day.

'You are what you eat' is as true for dogs as it is for humans. There's no wonder that so many dogs have behavioural problems when you look at what really goes into a typical can of dog food. Or why dog obesity is increasing exponentially when you look at the sedentary lifestyles so many owners lead. Here top trainer and It's Me or the Dog presenter Victoria Stilwell shows how you can have a happy, fit, healthy dog by giving them the right food and the right exercise. Along the way she deals with all sorts of related behavioural problems – from food stealing to managing exercise – in her typically feisty and highly effective way.

Includes:
DOGS' DINNERS: good food/bad food; what/how much should puppies and dogs eat? how to make simple dog food yourself; food for puppies/older dogs/particular conditions.
FAT DOG TO SLIM DOG: what is overweight? eating plans for overweight dogs; top tips for sticking to it.
PROBLEMS PROBLEMS: behavioural problems around food and Victoria's solutions to them including stealing food, constant begging etc.
WALKIES AND WORKOUTS: How exercise is crucial to well-being; how much exercise different breeds need; motivating reluctant exercisers; dealing with problems when exercising such as running off, pulling on lead etc.
