The aim is to help Aussie pets and their owners to lose weight and improve their fitness, health and wellbeing.

With 41% of Australian dogs estimated to be overweight, this challenge is a move to shed light on pet obesity and will see ten shortlisted pets and their owners go on a 12-week fitness journey with Greencross Vets and celebrity trainer, former Bachelor and current heart-throb, Sam Wood.

Rockhampton Petbarn Store Manager, Jeff Hickson said people spoiling their pets could do more harm than good.

"With our expertise in pet care, together with Sam's '28' training and nutrition program for people, we believe that this is a great way to help both pets and humans go on the journey of health together,” Jeff said.

The winning 'Petbarn's Biggest Pet Loser' will be judged based on the percentage loss of their overall weight with major prizes to be won.
