What a funny story!!!! I can imagine a Basset on a treadmill!! Are you over feeding them?? If you can try to reduce their portions by a bit and supplement with fresh green beans instead. R & S's Vet told me to try that with Rusty. He is not overweight at 49 pounds but was always starving. To the point, I felt really bad. She said for a lunch time snack to give him some fresh green beans along with some carrot. Affordable treat, low calorie and nutrious. The crunching alone seems to satisfy him and fill his belly. I don't add these veggies to his food because I don't want him to associate this with his kibble and not eat if the goodies aren't in the bowl.

I give them separately at lunch time. Stickers gets pumpkin and carrot. Here's Rusty enjoying his lunch!
