Use calcium tablet's as soon as possible with high protein dog food, like Dimond all feed stores carry this brand. It's vary affordable. Use tons of   exercise, the best type of exercise is the rope to a tree this helps build upper body Muscule, trust me she will be beefy with out fat, soild wight...

I put my pits on an all meat diet. But I only give them usda grade meat, and I don't give them anything with bones. This made my pits bulk up (in a good way) and their coats are much shinier and they seem much happier.
But in order to make your pit stronger, thats exercise, not just food. Get a spring pole, they are lots of fun for your dog and it builds muscle like crazy, but in a healthy way.

Better yet, for a good dog food, look at your ingredients.... Dogs need meat NOT corn. Most dogs are allergic to it. Also look at the protein in the food. I have 10 month old pitbull that weighs in at about 80 lbs and still growing, and not an ounce of fat on him. I feed him Nutro Natural Selects. If you can afford it, and want better, go with Blue Buffalo, its even higher in protein.

Also agreeing with the harness and weights, they are a sporting kinda dog so they like a challenge and it's good exercise not 2 mention healthy for them. My dog use to love doing it and she was very muscular however, if it is for the purpose of fighting or anything like that I also highly disagree with your intentions.

Run run run run run. And also big solid chew toys made of rubber or bone will beef up his neck and chest. But running and tug of war are BY FAR the best ways. Oh and feed him food that is specifically for large breeds.

You can also tie a rope to a strong branch in your tree and tie a knot at the end of it , my dog woukd swing on it till he got the knot out which was very slim but he loved swinging on it and hi back muscles were so strong from doing it cause half the tim he wouldnt let go of it lol

Tie wights to a harness and have him/her pull them around everywhere. When it gets too easy for the dog, increase the weight...

How old is your pup? If they aren't physically mature enough, if you overwork, add to much muscle too fast or too much muscle period what you really accomplish is to hurt and cripple them. They need to be a minimum of a year and a half with skeletal growth slowing a bit to begin any slow conditioning, they aren't done growing then but have gone through most of the major spurts as far as their skeletal structure goes really fast through the first year and then begins to slow down a bit. Their adult weight and muscle spurts are mostly through the second year after the major 'up' growth spurts. They are done about 2 (when an OFA x-ray may be graded) to 3 years. Many people find by then they don't feel the need to try and put much muscle on. :-). If your pup is mature enough to begin slowly conditioning then you can check out the first link for some ways to do it safely for your pup. None of it's worth hurting or crippling your baby for life.

Make sure the weights are only in 5 pound increments..just keep in mind 5 pounds is a whole tenth of an average pit bulls weight. They make special jackets to distribute this weight evenly and never chain or put weight on the dogs neck..I have seen to many upper spinal injuries occur this way. Mostly running and a good rice,sweet potato and duck based food, like natural balance or canadae.... Running and springpoles are inexpensive and produce great results lots of praise and socializations as working out can jazz anyone or dog up with endorphin, so keep him/her under control so you don't get accused of having a "fighting" dog....we pittie owners have it hard...but with great reward!!

Well what I did and my dog loved it, I tied a large long rope on a strong tree branch and tied a knot at the end of it and my dog would jump in the air and hold on to the knot at the end of the rope and she  would swing back and fourth trying to get the knot out of it and she would hold on for a while lol about a good 10 Min's at a time and her back muscles were so strong from her swinging back and fourth

Pretty much it all depends on how the parents are, my pitbull's parents are both bulked up like you say, and the male I have is pretty bulked up, but the dad is on his 100 plus lbs, and my male is 20 months old, and weights around 75-80 lbs. But I hardly have the time to take him out and exercise, so I suggest that if you have the time, take him running, not just walking, feed him the best dog food, always look at the crude protein, buy the one with the most crude protein, and notice that puppy food, has the largest amount of it. You can also ask around at the pet food supply, they would tell you.

By giving it chicken necks and also chicken charcoses, which you can buy at the butchers, it is normal to feed them these and dogs love them :) I give them to my staffy and it has stocked him up heaps, also feed your dog up heaps but excercise it a lot, like running. You can also buy this stuff apparently that you put in your dogs food and it makes them more muscular, you should be able to get it from the pet shop, sorry but I don't know what it's called. :)

You let him grow naturally (being sure to feed a high quality diet that does not promote accelerated growth) to avoid aggravating (if things are done improperly your dog can have some major problems where there very well might not have been otherwise) bone and joint problems (like hip and elbow dysplasia) and then if you prefer you can start conditioning him properly in a way that's safe for him. There is usually no need for this once they've reached their full growth between 2 and 3 years old and they are quite strong enough without help :-). You need to be sure they are trained properly and that you are able to control them. Here's some links to some information and maybe a club or two you can get involved in to make sure you are doing everything in the proper manner.

You feed him a high quality food and let him grow naturally to help with bone and joint problems like hip dysplasia from accelerated growth and extra weight and then follow proper guidelines if you think it's still necessary which isn't usually. They are full grown in 2 or 3 years. Here's some resources and guidelines for you so you can do what's best for your doggy (and your wallet). :-)    www.dogfoodanalysis.com  www.pitbulllovers.com  www.pitbulllovers.com  www.pitbulllovers.com  www.amstaff.org  www.pbrc.net  www.wpbtca.com
