I have a full-blooded red nose pitbull. He is 15 weeks old. I don't want him to be aggressive but I do want him to be big. I need some advice on things to do to make him bigger.

Feed your dog muscle-up with a half cup of milk twice a day for a whole week maybe two weeks.

Raw chicken…. raw chicken…. more chicken… hemp protein…. and not for nothing you can’t be a fat ass you’re going to have to work harder than your dog does. This is like going to the gym for an increased amount of time every day until you reach about 4 hours. So you should mix in some obedience training and also some tricks.
It’s always better if they do tricks.
And you’re going to need a never-ending water supply because damn it they are thirsty.

when he is a year old get a pull harness and put a tire on the end of it and get him to run up small slopes he will get ripped up and look tank.. fuck all the negative opinions on here as long as you treat your dog with love and respect your all good :)

Genetics will determine how big he gets. Forced exercise can cause permanent damage to a young pup's joints. Extra vitamins or supplements can cause growth issues too. For the record, a well-bred Pit Bull should not be a large dog. Huge Pits with giant heads and freakishly thick necks are the result of poor breeding.
Answer by Jocelynn
Original American PitBulls – Purebred are lean and muscular. Probably not much more than 40-50 lbs. If you are looking for a massive body& head look for a cross between a mastiff & bully breed, those dogs will be easy to put the weight on that you’re looking for without a problem.
There are so many breeders out there that claim the APB, be careful because you may end with a mutt of some sort. Research the lineage on the parents' line just to make sure. APB’s are not massive dogs.

Helium. Seriously, if you wanted a large breed dog, you should have gotten one. Pit bulls should be lean and muscular, not big. Those pittipotamus 'american bully' pits are nothing more than mutts and are an insult to true APBTs
Answer by Nekkid Truth!
he will only get as big as genetics determine he will be.
feed a good diet, and provide proper exercise (nothing too strenuous.. you don't want to injure growing joints!)

Answer by Kevin Brooks!
Genetics is the key your dog will b as big as the bloodline it comes from. Every now and then u will have a pup or two every few litters that will be bigger or smaller than way its genetics are set up. An as for bullies or other so-called pit bulls being mutts.
All dogs are mutts. Original pit bulls never got over 40 or 50 pounds. American pit bulls are the foundation. The bully breed has more bulldog blood mixed with the American pitbull giving it a short low wide look. The bigger pit bulls 100+ pounds have more mastiff or bullmastiff blood. It all really went for a certain look or so-called quality.
They all have the same blood and in my opinion, are all good dogs from the APBT to the heavyweights and the Bullies. Red nose to the blue nose and all colors and coat patterns.

Answer by Frankie!
a 'full blooded red nose' pit bull is probably NOT a pure breed. He's a street-pitbull…a dog with generic traits shared by several bully-breed dogs.
Having said this, you shouldn't even be considering making your 15-week-old dog bigger! He needs to grow into his body. Don't even think about giving him any kind of
supplements until he's AT LEAST a year and a half, if not two years old. By then, his bones have finished growing.
giving supplements to a dog that young will make him grow to fast and cause joint problems much earlier in life than they should.
the size of a dog is also determined by his parents. If his parents were big and muscular, then he will look that way when he is mature, not before then.
If his parents are wide and deep-chested with huge heads and squat legs, they ARE NOT PIT BULLS. Those are AmBullies and I really wish idiots would stop calling them pit bulls.

Hi please can someone help me out I have a purebred pitbull his now 11 weeks old.. I give him vitagen dog food is that a good quality for my dog and will it provide the nutrients he needs? I’m also a bit worried as he doesn’t always eat the dog food from when I got him so I’ve started putting a bowl with rice and chicken out for him too, some days I give him mealie meal and he enjoys it his a very picky eater.. Is this sort of food okay for his over all health as well as growth as a pup?
Vitagen is not well known in the US. Anyway, when you chose dry dog food for your puppy please keep in mind that good kibbles can’t cost less than 3.50 – 4.00 US dollars per 1 kg (2.2 lb) of a large bag (12 – 20 kg).
If you feed your puppy good dry food he won’t need any supplements because good dry food contains all necessary nutrients. There are specially composed dry foods for medium and large puppies.
Please try to avoid grains, including the mealie meal. It’s definitely not good for the puppy. As for rice with chicken, it is usually given to dogs if they have diarrhea. You shouldn’t do it often. Good luck with your pup. There’s a number of useful posts about pit bulls on our website, maybe you would like to take a look.

Same with me but he wants rice. Yeah a picky eater, try different food and put some probiotics. Mine is turning 16 weeks old.
