It doesn't take a lot for you to make your pit bull muscular. Having a defined muscle structure on your pit bull not only displays the dog's beauty and physical capabilities, but it reveals the responsibility the owner takes to maintain their pit bull's over all health. To make your pit bull muscular, is to make him strong of course, so the owner should also be physically fit enough to remain control over the strong, energetic pit bull. Obedience training should be heavily applied daily as part of caring for a well balanced pit bull. Prior to taking these steps, a responsible dog owner of any breed should research the appropriate nutritional guidelines on what types of dog food your particular breed needs to live a healthy life. Pit bulls are allergic to many ingredients in the majority of cheap and expensive feed out on the market. My pit bull breaks out in hives if I feed him dog food that contains corn byproduct. Every dog is different, so make sure you do your homework and pay close attention to how your dog reacts to certain foods and supplement. This is the way I got my pit bull to its optimum physical physique. I'm sure it will work for you also.
First thing to keep in mind is to start at the right time. Giving puppies supplements and treadmill runs could likely injure your young pup. It is also inadvisable to apply a tedious exercise program to a dog under a year, so be patient. After about a year would be a great time to extensively train and make your pit bull muscular. Remember females don't get as thick as males so don't have high expectations with female pit bulls. They still do get quite defined but not as massive as males.
To make your pit bull muscular, you should purchase quality dog feed at your local market or pet store. I feed my pit "Nutro" adult dog food lamb and rice formula, with no corn or wheat byproduct. Good dog food promotes a healthy coat and good eating habits. Because many pit bulls are genetically prone to hip and joint problems such as hip dysplasia, pit bull's need to eat right with proper exercise to avoid injury. One supplement called, "K-9 Show Stopper" helped my pit bull get thicker especially around the hip area. My pit bull was lacking the extra meat around the butt and hips so I went out to seek advice and I was told about this supplement by a pit bull breeder. So I tried it, and after about a month I began to notice a big difference in the width of my pit bull especially around the hips. This supplement not only helps a skinny pit gain mass, but it also promotes a nice, show room coat, and helps build stronger joints, from what the label on the product says.
All dogs are different. I read some reviews about owner's purchasing this product and it didn't do too much. On the other hand there are plenty reviews by owner's claiming it works in their testimonials and pit bull forums. For my pit, the product lived up to its claims, and is worth the $17 I pay every month. If you do decide to add supplement's to your pit bull's feed, monitor the effects and results to help decide if spending a little extra money is worth it. Make sure your dog eats at least 3 meals a day, but like I said do your homework on the amount of food intake your dog needs for its breed, age, and weight.
Make sure to provide the appropriate amounts of exercise your pit bull needs. Activities such as playing fetch or hiking help build your pit bull's muscles and defined muscular structure along with higher prey drive and quick reflexes. Riding a bike up hill or just riding steady with your pit bull is a great routine to help make your pit bull muscular. Treadmills are a good idea if you live in apartments or too busy to walk your dog, but be advised there are certain steps to take when training your dog to walk or run on a treadmill. They have to gradually learn to adapt to the exercise slowly to avoid injury and strain on the dog. Running and walking at least 45 minutes a day is good for you and your dog. It helps reduces stress and heart disease for us owner's and helps fight high blood pressure.
I really encourage obedience training because a strong, fit dog needs to be obedient to make going out in public and day to day handling a breeze. Pit bull's have a bad rap. It is fueled by bad pit bull owners and the media. You don't need weights or heavy chain link collars to ad muscles. It only strains the dog's neck muscles and if applied at young pup age, it could possibly hold back the dog's natural growth expectancy and potential. All I did to get my pit big is good food, a little supplement and daily walking, running and bike rides. In closure, please be a responsible pit bull owner, do your homework on what it takes to raise a well balanced dog, and try to erase the negative image placed on pit bulls and other powerful breeds by being a loving leader to your dog.
