    I am assuming by fill out more you mean see more muscle popping out, you can tone what is there with exercise/work and that will help with definition. The dog will likely continue to fill out over the next couple of years, after about the age of 2 it's a slow process but it's not uncommon for them to keep filling out up to the age of 3.
  2. What work do you suggest beside walking and running around

    Lots of different things, tug, spring pole, flirt pole, fetch, swimming, sprints, weight pulling, dock diving ect.. It really is limitless, just find what he enjoys doing and work with it, also work on things that challenge him mentally, i try and work on both at the same time but my guys are a little drivey so i have to pick and choose which ones to work on.

    Btw Slow growth is good, dogs on a proper healthy diet grow slower than dogs on sugary kibble that has too much protien. Large breed dogs can have joint issues as well as poor muscle development when they grow too fast. this is why so many brands have kibble specific to large breed puppies. I personally use puppy food until 1.5/2ish years (when I fed kibble, doing raw right now). Just be sure to check the ingredients and protien levels, a large breed puppy specific food isn't always necessary.

    I would suggest Fromm, it's one of the more affordable options for a good quality food from a reputable company.
