When you hold your hand flat, and rub your other hand accross your knuckles that is how you should be able to feel your dogs ribs. When you close our hand and feel your knuckles, that is how your dogs ribs would feel when they are to to thin. And when you flip your had over and keep it open and try to feel your knuckles through your palm, that is when your dog is to fat. This is what I would tell people who came into the clinic, it was kinda a hands on, visual way to explain it to people. Another way to check weight, is check his waist. You whould be able to tell where he has a waist without looking for it. When his sides are straight without and indentation then he a pudgy. I hope this helps a little bit...
