How old is your dog?




What is your dog’s activity level?

Total couch potato.

Loves a daily walk, but nothing too fast.

She’s a runner but she loves a good nap, too.

If she could fetch all day, she would.

How often is your pup at the vet?

Only for checkups, and she passes with flying colors.

Every 6 months or so, when she swallows something weird.

Fairly often. She’s a sensitive one.

We’re in and out of the vet’s office. There always seems to be something wrong.

Does your dog have bad breath?

Yes! Help!

Nope. Dodged that bullet.

Every once in a while.

Is your pup a picky eater?

Yes! She’d rather go hungry than eat food she doesn’t like.

She’s got a sophisticated palate but she won’t go hungry.

Not at all. If it’s food, she’ll eat it (and sometimes even if it’s not).

What’s your pup’s idea of a perfect day?

Running around at the park with her doggie pals.

Relaxing under a tree or cuddling on the couch.

A trip to the doggie day spa.

On a trail, in the pool or at the park — wherever she can jump, chase or swim.
