Affordable, Friendly Advice
Starting from just $10, WAGSTA Wellness has a program to suit you. Our monthly subscription model provides weight management support according to your budget and dog diet needs.
Individualized Calorie and Portion Plans
Membership will provide your dog with individualized calorie and portion plans. Choose to use either imperial or metric measurements. Access our international dog diet food index to find the best diet food for your dog!
Your dog's calorie plan is monitored to ensure safe, sustainable rates of weight loss. Choose to feed your dog either commercial low-calorie dog food or homemade meals. And yes treats are allowed!
Enjoyable, Achievable Activity Plans
We have three activity levels to choose from based on your dog's current mobility and weight. We also provide for dogs (and owners) who are restricted by physical disability. All of our plans introduce activity in a safe, steady manner. Activity plans include a combination of walking, off leash activity and play.
Our safety-first approach means this is not a boot camp style program. We will never push you or your dog beyond your limit.
WAGSTA Wellness Weight Loss Coaching
Besides diet and exercise, this program navigates to the root cause of an overweight dog. Our video and email series delve into the management of household factors and feeding habits that impact on your dog's weight gain.
By recognizing the human-dog bond and the importance of mindset, we create habit change. We can show love for our dog in ways that promote dog health and vitality.
"Friends comment that Gyp looks like a new dog!"
"Overall Gyp has lost about 13 pounds which is fabulous. We’ve had comments that Gyp does not even look like the same dog as he did before we put him on his diet. I really do not think we could have accomplished his weight loss without this program. Gyp is now much more active and gets very excited about his walks. He is also more heat tolerant and just the other day accompanied my husband on a 5 mile jog with ease! I have been very happy with this program and with Gyp's results." Sarah Oates and Gyp, Colorado, USA

"Thank you so much for giving me more time with my beautiful girl!"
"I would wholeheartedly recommend this program to anyone with shall we say 'ample' over loved doggy. My Roxy is like a different dog since starting her diet, she has so much more energy, looks 5 years younger (she is a spritely 13 years young!) and moves so much easier. Roxy is losing her extra weight in a safe and managed manner. Dr. Charlotte, who is offering this assistance, is a wonderfully friendly and helpful professional vet and I could not recommend her and this program any more highly. She is always available to help Roxy with her needs and help me with the weight challenge. I cannot thank her enough for giving me more years with my beloved dog. With Roxy's weight loss I believe our time together will be a lot longer and with a much better quality of life for my girl. Thank you Dr. Charlotte, for this wonderful program and so much more time with my beautiful girl.”Jan Polaris with Roxy 13 year old Labrador x Staffordshire Terrier
"A highly recommended and user-friendly dog weight loss solution!"
“This course is very user friendly and I have recommended it my family and friends. Thanks to this program I now understand how to count calories for my dog and I have cut back on my Charlie’s snacking. I found Dr Charlotte very approachable and her passion and knowledge about dog weight management reassuring.”Sheryl McKenzie and Charlie (4 year old Labrador retriever)
"Your best friend will thank you!"
“Our Fur Baby, Saltie, has just successfully finished his 12 week doggy weight challenge. Saltie was about 15% overweight which was contributing to Patella luxation (dislocated kneecap). Our options for treatment included surgery which would cost approximately $2000 or weight loss. We obviously opted for the weight loss option. Through Dr Charlotte Williamson’s amazing and highly professional program, Saltie is now back to his healthy weight and his lameness has disappeared. Thanks to this program we’ve identified and overcome some of our not-so-healthy feeding habits and we can confidently say Saltie is set to stay in peak condition. I highly recommend WAGSTA Wellness if you have a fur baby that is carrying a bit of extra weight.”Teresa Howard and Saltie (2 year old King Charlies Cavalier X Spaniel)

"This program really works!"
"This program really works. Sophie looks and feels so much slimmer! We highly recommend WAGSTA Wellness to all dog lovers. We found this program highly informative with Charlotte available to us throughout the program providing plenty of helpful advice. We now understand about proper portion control and suitable foods to feed Sophie. And as a household we've also learnt to communicate better regarding Sophie's feeding and treats. We have no hesitations in recommending this program to others."Trish and Peter Mowett with Sophie-Margaret (9 year old Maremma X Sheepdog)
