Has any one tried to bulk up their rottie? I very intersted in draft carting .Iam ntersted in the age as to when i should start letting my rottie pull weighted carts.I as worried about bone,cartaligeand tendon strenght at younger ages. I know Not to rush into pulling heavy right away and that it takes time to build muscles. Shoot it took me three years to bench 300 plus. Any info would be a great help.& nbsp; Tom Edited by: Arcticcat

Well...



I can tell you what i have done ...
I couldnt see him dragging any thing
around , like cinder blocks or what ever .....



I took a life vest .... ( for water
skying ) slit the padding and
replaced it with sand bags .....



Did one h&ll of a job
on his muscle tone in his front
end ....



today you can see all his
muscles defined in his leggs &
shoulders....

Yeah like arnold




I did it twice ... the first
time i did 1/2 the vest
it was about 15 pounds ....



that worked well so i slit
the rest of the vest and it
weighed 27 pounds .....



Mind you i only did
this when we were at the dog
park ... about one hour a day
..... i would throw a ball
and he would run with that
vest on...



He is very toned now ..... he
is not a big rott only stands
28 inches and weighs 115 pounds BUT
to stand back and look he is
a ROCKwieler ....



he was also 2 y/o when i did this ....



" good luck " dont
over due it !!! people get
hurt at the gym and you can
hurt your dog easly
