Advice on bulking

Hey everyone,

I would like to get some advice on how to get my pup and little bigger/broader. I know their size comes a lot from bloodline, but any tips that could help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! (He's four months old now) and currently sleeping

I'd just let him be a pup and enjoy him being small genetics will determine how big the dog will be and you can add muscle mass by good diet and exercise but I think he's a little to young to be concerned with any of that.

At this age, you just want to let him be a pup. No strenuous exercise, or extreme dieting. Let him mature a bit and see where he's at around 18 months and then you can see if you "need" to bulk him up. As KG stated, a good diet and exercise routine at an appropriate age will cover what genetics doesn't.

Thank you both for the advice! What would be considered a good diet? Right now I just have him on purina puppy food, should I switch or stay on this? Name:  ImageUploadedByPG Free1376345805.438640.jpg

switch FAST!! that is the McDonald's of dog food NOT GOOD. Anytime corn or by products are in the ingredients near the top its not a good food. Plus most people have a fat dog, they don't realize dogs are supposed to have a tuck to be a healthy weight.

I would look into other options out there. Blue Buffalo is good, I feed Acana, which I believe they have a puppy formula. Might cost more but the benefits and the less food you feed will save you money in the long run.

How old is your dog? Typically you double the weight of a 4 month old puppy to find their adult weight. Dogs grow in height until about a year and then fill out and grow out until about 2.

like ames said, that food is crap.
if you are really interested in a healthy dog... genetics and nutrition are the foundation for a good lookin pup. get rid of the junk food and put him on a better diet.
then you can start exercising him when he's old enough.

I feed my bully (Kash Money @ 8 1/2 wks old) raw/dry...my routine is this.......

2 x times daily

1 cup of Puppies Blue Buffalo (Dry)
1/2 lb of Blue Ridge Beef puppie mix (Raw)
10 tsp of Ultra 24 (it is like a filler)
1 tablet (BullyMax) <<<< only one time a day >>>>
Mix all that together real good and just let him/her eat it. Once he is done I wait couple minutes and see if he wants to finish what he has left. If he does not want anymore, I will (refrigerate it (since it has raw meat in it) save it for a snack for him later in between his dinner time.... At dinner time I do the same mix, but with out Bully Max....

I also have a Boston Terrier, but I just feed her the Blue Buffalo,Her coat is real shinny...

Thank you all for the advice! I went and purchased the blue buffalo puppy food and have started mixing it in with his old food to slowly get him off of it! Currently at the vet for his ear cropping and he weighed in at 26 pounds at four months old! Ill post a picture after! Name:  ImageUploadedByPG Free1376667922.935032.jpg

Blue buffalo is ok, but it gave my pup loose stool. Im guessing you shop at petsmart. Look for other pet/feed stores in your area, they usually have a better selection of holistic foods. If blue doesnt work out, I'd recommend trying "Chicken soup for dog lovers soul puppy". My pup and my other dogs all eat Acana which is all life stages.

BB is better. some people have success with that. some don't. hopefully your pup does well on it. but keep researching food brands. you may have to try a few things before you find the right one.
