Meet your Wagsta Wellness pack
The countdown to your dog’s transformation has begun. How are you feeling? Nervous? Inspired? Itching to get started?
Put this energy to great use by completing Prep Steps 1-7 and by meeting fellow WAGSTA Wellness participants.
Let the introductions commence!
If you haven’t already, please join our coaching group (tap the facebook group button in the left menu) and introduce yourself to your fellow WAGSTA members.
Upload a selfie of you and your dog. We’d love to meet your adorable dog and discover in which part of the world you live!
If you need any help throughout your program, please reach out through your WAGSTA Facebook Support group. This way we can all benefit from each others questions and insights.
Introducing your dog to new food
Step 4 guides you in selecting a calorie restricted, high protein dog food for this program.
Introduce your dog to their new food gradually over the course of several days.
Day 1: 25% new food: 75% old food,
Day 2: 50% new food: 50% old food,
Day 3: 75% new food: 25% old food,
Day 4: 100% new food.
Aim to have your dog eating their portioned diet food in readiness for diet plan activation. If you have trouble with your dog refusing their new food, please follow our tips for food refusal.
In Step 5, you will be provided with your dog’s daily meal portions. Correct portioning is essential for your dog’s successful weight loss journey. Use this cheat sheet to get started: How to correctly portion and measure your dog’s meals.
Diet Plan Activiation
Once all 7 steps are completed, a program activation tab will appear to get your WAGSTA diet plan underway. It’s then up to you to check in on your membership page at least once a week to receive step by step advice and to provide regular weight and activity uploads.
In the meanwhile this short video will help get you off to a great start!
