The Results Bark for Themselves

WAGSTA Wellness weight support is available to any dog, at anytime, anywhere!

"Overall Gyp has lost about 13 pounds which is fabulous! Because my husband and I are very active and take our dogs on hikes and runs almost daily, we always thought he could burn off the extra weight through exercise - but after having done WAGSTAs weight plan we have learned that it is not the case."

"We rescued overweight 6-year-old Labrador, Summer who suffered from arthritis, over-heating and general poor health. The most helpful advice for us was pet food nutritional contents (an eye-opener!) Summer lost 10.4kg on the program is now a happy, healthy and active 7-year-old dog.""

"Delta has dropped from 68 to 56 lbs. She has also rediscovered that she can jump on the bed again! This program has been the one thing I've been able to put my hands on that has finally given me the incentive to manage Delta's weight. I feel so much better at night knowing Delta is a healthy weight."

Frequently Asked Questions

After sign up you will be guided through 7 Prep Steps. These include filling out your dog’s profile, completing feeding and activity questionnaires, and setting goals and milestones.

During your preparation, you will be guided in how to portion and select a suitable diet food for your dog. You will need to factor in time to source and introduce your dog to their diet food (recommended 4 – 7 days).

Once prep steps are completed, you are all set to follow your weekly diet plan. We recommend starting your dog’s diet within a week of diet plan purchase.

During the program aim to set aside a minimum of 15 minutes per day to visit and update your member area, view coaching materials and to converse with coaches and community via the private members’ group. If you have longer to spare, great!

Activity – at program commencement we start with 2 x 10 minute dog activity sessions per day. By the end of 12 weeks this will have grown to 2 x 30 minute activity sessions per day (comprised of dog walking, play and off-leash activity.) forming your dog’s maintenance activity baseline. Activity sessions may be condensed into single daily walks.

WAGSTA Wellness plans are suitable for all breeds of dog and all levels of mobility.

(Dog diet plans are not suitable for pregnant or lactating dogs or for dogs aged less than 1 year, or less than 18 months if a giant breed).

We recommend all canine participants receive a general health check by a veterinarian prior to commencing their weight management program. This can help confirm your dog’s idea weight and rule out any health factors contributing to your dog’s weight gain.

WAGSTA Wellness weight management plans and calorie restricted diet programs have been developed in accordance with professional veterinary research principles: AAHA Weight Management Guidelines for Dogs and Cats.

For best rates of success, we encourage dogs be fed a commercialized “diet dog food” or “weight loss” formulation for their entire weight loss program. Selection of a suitable diet food for your dog is addressed as part of your program induction.

The WAGSTA Wellness diet plan also provides access to pet nutritionist-formulated diet food recipes. These recipes are suitable for those who are experienced in home-cooking for their dog.

The WAGSTA Wellness program aims for dogs to achieve 1-3 % body weight loss per week, in line with professional veterinary weight loss guidelines.

Your dog’s starting body condition score (BCS) will determine the length of their weight loss period. Most pet parents with dogs who are 10-20% above their ideal weight (BCS 6-7), take an average of 3- 6 months to achieve their dog’s healthy weight. While dogs in the upper obese range (BCS 8-9) will take a little longer.

With strict adherence to our dog weight loss program the follow weight loss figures are achievable over the course of 16 weeks:

  • Starting weight of 50 kg (110 lb) – lose 5.7-15 kg (12.6-33 lb)
  • Starting weight of 40 kg (88 lb) – lose 4.1-12.3 kg (9-27 lb)
  • Starting weight of 30 kg (66 lb) – lose 3.5-9.2 kg (7.7-20 lb)
  • Starting weight of 20 kg (44 lb) – lose 2.4-5.3 kg (5.3-11.7 lb)
  • Starting weight of 10 kg (22 lb) – lose 1.3-4.4 kg (2.9-9.7 lb)
  • Starting weight of 5 kg (11 lb) – lose 600 g-1.5 kg (1.3-3.3 lb)

Our programs are suitable for all levels of mobility. If your dog is unable to participate in regular activity, our diet plan will guide you in achieving your dog’s weight loss through caloric restriction alone. This is relevant for morbidly obese dogs, disabled dogs and those requiring pre-surgical weight loss.

We have three activity programs available, suitable for varying breeds and levels of mobility and fitness.
