Well I looking for something to make him big cause he's doesn't like to fight and I don't want to loose that but if someone try's something he's there by my side and barkin and growling and I want it to hurt when he hits someone. And he's no guard dog don't get me wrong cause he loves everyone but me and my cousin were playn tap out in the yard and he try'd to attack my cousin and I like the way he try's to be protective but I want him to be strong if he ever does it again cause it didn't take nothin to throw him off and I called him off the second I got up and he was fine but I don't want it to be as easy for someone to throw him like my cousin did.

I agree with Goudasmom. My girls would just lay down and refuse to get up I'm sure, until the chain was removed.

He's probably stronger than you think, maybe you should start with regular exercise every day, how old is he? If he is under (I forgot the exact month) about 15-17 months then running or jogging especially on concrete or hard surfaces should be prohibited bc it causes joint damage. Raw and kibble mix sounds good to me. I don't know too much about proteins though. Also, he might have taken it easy on your ol' cousin bc he probably knew y'all were messin around but he definitely wanted cousin and you to stop it. However, if you feel he isn't going to defend you then maybe you should look into working out yourself, maybe take some self defense classes, or something like that. But if you insist on canine bodybuilding, I highly recommend an obedience class first and working with your dog with positive reinforcement methods only, I can't stress it enough. Our dogs really really respond to positive reinforcement training!

Well he was a year old December 2 and I need him to protect me I just want it to be alittle harder to get him off when he does but he is fine around children and adult and that was the only time I've ever seen him show any real aggression but he is about 70 lbs and a male fawn. He is getting pretty big and I put him on a chain but he would lay down until I would go to leave him and then he wanted to yank it out the ground but I think I will just keep him on a chain till he gets older cause I don't want him to have any problems and he already looks so pretty but I think he would look a lot better if he had alittle more muscle mass.

Yeah I found out today that there should be no jogging or running until after 18 months, so after June. Uhhh, yep, mine would just lay down too. When I was in FFA I had goats, we would put a harness on them and let them pull a tire, it was a small truck tire with the rim still on it. And they got strong!!! The grand champion goat lol, he RAN from the end of the street, 5 houses down all the way back to our house and he took out our water to the house and made it look like a geyser haha. Water was shooting up and I didn't know how to turn the water to the house off so It leaked for a long time haha. Don't know if a dog would do the same, I doubt it but hey u never know, he might find it really fun! I would just start with regular amount of exercise each day, walks, hikes etc.

I ordered a harness for Baron and he'll be pulling a wagon come spring. Not to make him strong but he is a working dog and shud do some thing besides look pretty. Fiirst I'll have his hip X-rayed so that he can pull fair sized weights.

Good idea! I agree, they are a working breed after all. I've chosen agility for Rosco. So far so good. I think it would be fun to pull a cart or little wagon. Especially for my little cousin, she could sit inside and we could go on little walks together

ive been working with sugar on building muscle lately. i learned alot on pullfoggies.com, its important to have them xhavked by a vet to make sure any dog is healthy enough for vigorous exercise. she has a weightnpull harness and tugs my daughter around the back yard on a plastic sled. sugar is about 55 pounds and my daughter is almost 30 dead weight. but thats just exercise, not "maxing out". we also walk close to a mile a day. she wears a backpack with 4 water bottles a total of just over 4 pounds. usually if i walk her she would try and run or pull untill we bought the back pack. no she stays by my side without a lead. i guess she feels like shes working. but basic training is always a bonus, also our day includes fetch for sprinting, and tug a war to build strong neck muscles. i read alot on pits cause i love their builds and have chose a kibble adding egg and natural meat source. shes just about to turn 2 and has been doing very well. our first boxer was a huge male that was built up and could get over our 6 foot privacy fence.
