Question How do I "Beef Up" my pitbull puppy?

I have just gotten an eight week old puppy and i want to know if there is a way to beef him up or make him more muscular. Is exercising involved? Or is there a vitamin supplement to build his muscle tone? I have seen various vitamin supplements on the internet. But I do not know if that is the only secret to making the dog bigger. I visited some websites and there was some pictures of pitbulls where they are HUGE!! But I want to know how they do that and how to make my puppy more muscular. Any suggestions?

An 8 week old puppy is WAY to young to be thinking about beefing him up. He needs time to grow and socialize right now not conditioning.

Also Pitbulls are not huge and should not be huge. You are most likely seeing American Bullies as pitbulls are slender dogs not massive ones.

I suggest you do some learning on socialization and raising a good dog and leave your worry about looks for later years in life.

genetics are what gives you a beefy dog. you can condition for tone but it all depends on the dog and type of dog. you cant really decide now what you want your dog to turn out like. it all depends on genes.
heres a pretty good example of genetics. Marty's lil bit is a house dog that is all natural from hand walks.

We know what we have and we know what we have seen and we are not mistaking anything. If you go to google and type in american pitbull terrier there is a picture of a gray pitbull on a big chain. He is an american pitbull terrier. And if you keep going through the pages you will find more that look similar to him. They are not slender at all. They are thick and built to the hilt. The pictures on google of big big bif pitbulls is what i want my puppy to look like when he gets older. And that is the way pitbulls are supposed to look. I dont want my pitbull to just have a big head and bones.

You are very mistaken and no you obviously have no idea what a pitbull is. Do your research not just google things, thats not education.


AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER
UKC Breed Standard
United Kennel Club: American Pit Bull Terrier (Revised November 1, 2008)
ADBA
American Dog Breeders Association
NKC Breed Standard
apbt/astb standard
AADR Breed Standard- This registry will except the registration of non papered dogs, however they do also have legitimately registered dogs and do hold events.
ALL AMERICAN DOG REGISTRY,LLC

The APBT comes in two different "styles"
UKC Standard Show/ working dogs- Some UKC Style dogs also do well when conditioned for the ADBA


ADBA Standard Dogs- These dogs are more to the original Game style dog.




AMERICAN BULLY
This is a newer breed stemming from the APBT. You will still often find them UKC and or ADBA registered as APBTS or Amstaffs, however they do know have their own registry.This breed since it is newer often lacks consistency. You will see some very well bred and proportioned and others with serious faults and lack of body type.
They also come in 3 variations, Smaller ones referred to as Pocket Bullies, Standard size Bullies and XXL bullies.

I know exactly what big blue boy your talking about and that is an American Bully. There are a lot of Bullies that are registered as APBT so that's where all the confusion comes in.
This is my boy Dosia he is on the big side for an APBT he weighs around 65-70lbs, he will never be a big bulky dog but he is in good shape.

Cause they are registering XL bullies as APBT. No true APBT has ever been 130lbs. Sounds more like American Bulldogs at that weight. Do more research on the creation on the American Bully and you'll understand.

Holly gave you some really good sites to check them out.

The main thing is to socialize that pup of yours. Make sure you introduce him to all sorts of things. Stat working on the basic of obedience too. It is never too younge to start training your little guy.
