he is 4 months old... too young for real excerice... wait till his fully grown then you can decide if he need to lose some.

Simba's a baby; he should be chubby. That is part of the puppy charm! :inlove:

He's also way too young to be lean, or muscular or to engage in hard exercise...he's still growing; and he could hurt himself through overexertion or by doing exercises his body isn't ready for.

Let him play and be a puppy goofball. He's too young to take life seriously! :))

Puppies can get an easy walk. Generally, when I feel my dogs are getting too heavy, I adjust how much I'm feeding. I've got a mature female here who only gets around 1-1.25 cups a day, because that's all she needs. My other dogs get 2-2.5 cups a day, and I vary that when I feel they're getting too heavy or light.

i usually just give him 600 grams of dog food in the morning and 600 at night and in the day like a few bones with some meat on them

yeah, you dont need to over exercise a growing puppy. could damage the growth of bones and joints. just walk with him everyday and you'll be good to go!
