How do I get my dog that muscular look??

My dog has plenty of lean muscle. If I wanted to beef him up a little bit at the same time minimize joint problems later what should I do? Before you guys ask... I don't want to fight my dog. I just like the muscular look. I feed him 2 cups of Iams puppy food a day. Is that enough?

If he is a puppy the best thing you can do is let him mature on his own. When he is a year you can start to work him out and build muscle.

As said above. Right now just let him mature. Proper training and basic manners is what you wanna work on right now. Well of course with letting him enjoy being a pup

It is hard to say how much to feed your dog I think 2 cups a day is fine or maybe a little more. Each dog is different you just need to look at them, if they look good then your feeding enough, too fat too much, skinny too little. You just have to adjust it to your dog. It is important to feed 2 times a day IMO and don't worry about bulking up a male till he starts to mature. Around a year then you can do conditioning.

Tiva is Three months and is ripped.
and we just let her play non stop and a lot of walks.
and as for the food.
we do three cups a day but that's because she tends to get really gangley and skinny from all the running and playing that she does.
I would suggest though maybe using a different food,
if you can afford it.
I just know on Iams dogs I've had tend to get sick.
If you look in health and nutrition they have a food rating link with the foods that are healthiest.
all you can do for the next sixth months is play with it and keep it healthy,
good luck!

Totally agree. Bjb, I'd forget about any kind of conditioning right now as it would be a great way to ruin your pup. Even when he's matured enough to start, bear in mind that genetics play an important role in how he will look.

As for looking after his joints, quality feed and being sensible with his training are a good start. My dogs also get glucosamine and fish oil supplements daily.

Genetics will tell if your dog will be bulky and muscular not the food or supplements.

Change that food... Iams is some pretty crummy stuff.. But like David says genetics will be his limit.. Good food and exercise just make it easier.

And let a pup be a pup... He's 4 months old!!!

It'd be a good idea to get your pup on a better food. I start my pups out on 2 cups a day, but that's usually Solid Gold or Nature's Variety. I like Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble for an independent food rating resource. As was said by others, how he is bred will set genetic limits on how he will develop. When he gets to be a year or so, you can start doing some light resistance work (like drag work) with him and that will encourage a thicker muscle versus lean muscle.

Hmm, I feed riley 4 cups a day 2 in the morning 2 at night (She is 9 months) and she drops her weight fast. I'd say the energy level plays a huge roll in how much you feed awell

Change that food for sure. We feed them nothing but meat products witch is the first ingredient and no corn or corn products. A

He's a puppy and you need to work on manners and let him be a puppy.
