    She looks like she put a bit more muscle on. I have dog that's like that wind forever. So harder to put more muscle mass

    You think a dog has to be tired out to put on muscle. I think not.

    IMHO RAge still looks a little dried out, and also looks a little weak. Just my opinion.

    Keep adjusting the feed. I would say more rest days, less running.

    Just speaking from my own exp. i use sprinting, running, etc, just as a supplement to the main base of the conditioning... a shit load of walking:). The walking, esp. when done right... will really tone up a dog, while also getting them nice and lean.

    So what is done right? I have been walking China hard, she's eating raw and been doing a little spring-pole with her. She finally got the hang of it. She is just not droping the weight I thought she would by now. This week we started running up and down steps. What else can I do to drop the weight and tone the tummy. ( She never tightened up from pups over two years ago.)

    Have you had her thyroid checked?




    Shady, Rage is still a bit too dry for my tastes and IMO, looks underfed (just looks, not necessarily is. I made the same mistakes- too much work, too little food and hardly enough rest. The room for improvement is there- and a dog doesn't need to "bulk up" to look healthy and powerful.

    Yes GSD. Had her thyroid checked a while back when we were having a problem with dry skin. It's fine. Maybe walk twice a day instead of one? I know she is not a gamebred dog, but I want her healthy and 68 lbs is not that. :eek: 45 - 50 would be good. I think she was about 45 in the sig pic.

    IMO that dog looks good. Maybe some minor tweaks to the diet will put her over the top.

    Looks like a Bulldog to me, and I love a Bulldog. She looks better than most, and I don't think she's under fed, I don't see any buttons on that backbone. Proper recovery and nurishment is key, when working a Bulldog and I like to mix it up according to their style. Such as, Mill work, tug-o-war with another hound, hand walking, short bursts of wt pulling, sprints and swimming just to name a few.
    Shady Ridge knows all of this and could most likely put it better. Good job Shady Ridge
