    How old is he? He looks far too young to be worrying about that yet.

    As said above, You shouldn't really worry about working out a dog at a young age. Wait for his body to mature so that you can work with your dog safely.

    Work on mental training. Far to young for strength training but not to young to let the dog be a dog, tug and light work is fine imho, nothing that causes any strain though. I can tell you now, genetics play a big role in a dogs build right down to the muscles, sure you can build on whats there and refine it but it's hard to add to something that simply isn't there.. My girl Trin is starting to pop out everywhere, it's genetics though, she didn't do much over this winter, in fact she was a couch potato for the most part but she still has muscles everywhere (she is 15 months)..

    I would wait and see how the dog turns out first and then go from there. How are you going to know what to do if you don't wait? Do you need to add weight and then muscle? Are you going to need to trim him down and lean out some? just wait and see, i know it can be tough at first as you want that iron body look as soon as possible lol.. but its nothing but problems if you start to fast.

    Again, maybe work on some metal training also.

    Five months.....I would be playing a little fetch with a tennis ball and very short, low key (if possible) sessions with a flirt pole. Nothing too demanding.

    "low key" im in stitches over here lol..

    Sometimes you can't help but flirt with em, they want to do it lol.. Should be very light though..

    And yes, fetch is the kind of the thing i was talking about above, just dog stuff. Fetch, light tugging ect. Or "Low Key" flirting :lol:

    They will build muscle by themselves, if it's in the genes. If it is I recommend free feeding.

    Since when does free feeding help build muscle? Or have anything to do with genetics?

    Is that weight supposed to mean something? 94 lbs in an APBT or AmStaff would mean the dog is grossly overweight.

    Lol I don't thinks but he's not a purebred dog but all I see is muscle and pretty fast for its weight. The vet said nothing about him being overweight I'm pretty sure they know more then us....

    The vet said my Dane was perfect at 156lbs. He's currently 130lbs and in perfect shape. A different vet told a customer that their newly adopted dog (pointer) was emaciated and needed to gain 15-20lbs, dog was in amazing shape. Dog is now so fat that it waddles in the store but that's fine because the vet said she's finally "filled out". Don't hold your breath on your vet being right about weight.

    Sounds good the what are the tattletale think of the dog is overweight. The reason I don't think he's over weight is because I run with him almost always but, when I it is raining hard I don't.
