I've been supplementing Flax Seed and Flax Seed Oil in my dogs food for years. It great for their coats and overall heath. It will not add or increase lean muscle mass. There is only two natural ways to add lean muscle mass. First and foremost it’s your dogs own genetics and second plain old fashion exercise.

Those are perfect activity for a 10 month old pup. I not sure what you mean by too much cardio hindering a lean look. Most activities you'll do with your pup will be cardio.

I use it once a week, a tablespoon in their food on the weekends.
If you use too much it will make them fat! lol So go easy on it, but its great to bring out a sheen in their coat and brightens their eyes up.

You can get it at any grocery store.
