Take your puppy outside as soon as he wakes up, after food, and during play when he starts circling and sniffing and getting ready to squat, remember to stay with the puppy and give lots of praise.

A light diet may be needed for a day or two, and you can give your puppy boiled chicken breast (skin and bone removed), boiled long grain rice, natural yoghurt and scrambled egg.

Obesity is not doing the older dog any favors because it can add stress to already weakened bones and joints.
