Benefits of a Dog Muscle Builder Supplement

In a world of full of dog lovers, it is our responsibility to maintain and improve the health of our pets. What exactly are the benefits of adding a dog muscle builder to your dog’s diet? Are these types of supplements mere gimmicks to waste money or will they really improve the health of our dogs? In terms of the benefits of adding a dog muscle builder in your dog’s regimen, there are plenty.

Dog Obesity

First, additional lean muscle mass will improve your dog’s health in many ways. Lean muscle mass should out-weight the fat percentage, and will in-turn burn excess harmful fatty tissue. This helps your dog maintain optimal health as dog obesity is a growing problem these days. Keeping your dog fit with better muscle definition may improve your dog’s health by reducing bad fat cell replication. This may have a positive domino effect, helping heart function and better overall circulation.

Dog Diabetes

Second, by adding a dog muscle builder to your dog’s food, you will ensure this additional muscle mass will help to utilize glucose within muscle cells more efficiently. Why is this important? Dog diabetes is another growing health issue in canines. By improving your dog’s lean muscle mass and density, the muscle will more effectively burn off excess sugar or glucose rather than your dog storing it as fatty tissue.

Keeping your dog fit with better muscle definition may improve your dog’s health by reducing bad fat cell replication. This may have a positive domino effect, helping heart function and better overall circulation.

 Muscle and Dog Joint Health Connection

 buffk9-bully-muscle-builder-supplement-pitbull-kinglineFinally, having a dog muscle builder supplement in your dog’s health regimen may also improve joint integrity. We recently saw a veterinarian who suggested exercise and to increase the lean muscle mass of our aging dogs to possibly improve their joint health. How exactly does a dog muscle builder supplement directly improve your dog’s joint health? Well, lean, tighter, stronger muscle tissue may have the capacity to help hold joint cartilage and tendons together with a stronger bond. Imagine holding a tight grip on a rope versus a weak grip, which grip is obviously going to win? Maintaining muscle mass is a very important factor in your dog’s overall health.

Drawbacks and Solutions

Although, there are mostly benefits associated with adding a dog muscle building supplement to your dog’s food, there may be drawbacks. Choosing the right supplements with the right quality and results can be tough. BuffK-9® brand True Champion Dog® is a human-grade dog supplement developed as a safe dog muscle builder. It contains natural vitamins, minerals, protein, aminos and fatty acids. True Champion Dog® Supplement improves your dog’s health from the inside out. By providing the proper nutrients typically missing from commercial dog foods, True Champ is able to help nourish your dog.  

Overall Health

BuffK-9® General Raw Dog Food Recipe

High Quality Dog Food VS Raw Dog Food

A lot of customers email and call us asking about what type of dog food is the best dog food? There’s so many choices ranging from grain-free, gluten-free, all natural, organic dog foods or raw dog food. Thus, making it hard to choose for best results. Our recommendation is to stick with what works, if your current brand of dog food is working well with your pet, then stick with it and just simply add in a very high-quality dog vitamin supplement such as True Champion Dog® to supercharge your dog food.


If you want to maximize your dog’s true potential, you may opt to feed them a raw dog food diet. We choose to feed our dogs raw dog food as we experienced allergy problems and other issues related to poor nutrient absorption from commercial kibble. BUT it is not always convenient to feed your dogs this way, so it is nice to have a good quality dog food on hand regardless.


Ground Beef (or your meat of choice)
Brown Rice
Eggs (with shells)
Yogurt (probiotics and calcium)
BuffK-9® Dog Supplements (lots of nutrients and omega fatty acids)
Veggies of your dog’s choice

Some even opt to add in kibble to their blend just to add some hard chewable food to keep their dogs jaws and teeth strong. It really will vary depending on your dogs goal and health situation. Below is a video of Mr Freeze who developed some pretty bad allergies from his diet. So we decided to start feeding a more raw dog food. It focuses on the main staples of a healthy dog life along with an awesome dog supplement by BuffK-9® to fill in any gaps.

True Champion Dog Questions and Answers

 Welcome to our Q and A post!

dog supplements and nutrition information questions and answers buffk9
The best way to give the formula to your dog is to mix it in there dog food sprinkled on top once or twice a day.
Our dog supplement formulas are free of fillers and anything artificial, we don’t add any flavor enhancers because they are known to cause all kinds of issues. The best way to give it to picky eaters is mix it in a scoop of plain regular yogurt and give it to your dog. This solves the problem 99 percent of the time.
Thanks for asking that question, it’s our favorite. The kind of muscle YOUR DOG WILL GAIN, WILL BE LEAN, DENSE MUSCLE MASS WITH MUSCLE DEFINITION this is how the formula is designed. We believe in increasing lean healthy muscle that will stay even if you stop use of our product, which will contribute to overall health of your dogs. That is why the muscle gained is dense and lean, not bulky or fat.
The reason it works is quality human-grade ingredients in the correct ratios, for dogs that workout, this can include going for regular walks to weighted vest exercises. Every company tells consumers that their products are the best, so why do very few work? The reason is simple, quality ingredients and research, it’s that simple. There are thousands of manufacturers of ingredients but the quality of each manufacturer is different to varying degrees. This is what makes the difference between what works and what doesn’t work. When you use super high quality ingredients, the results you get are superior. It’s not easy to concoct a dog supplement with proper ratios of nutrients that actually absorb. Remember quality products produce results, period. Cheaper, bad quality products don’t, period.
Our formalizations would help in terms of strengthening his muscles so that as he gets older he will maintain better muscle function. It will help reduce chances of muscle atrophy, which is what dogs suffer from a lot of these days as they age. Commercial Dog Food, no matter how high quality, usually isn’t enough to prevent this age related issue. Extra support is needed.
The simple reason why your dog is not maintaining healthy weight is because all dog foods are made with cooked meat, the reason is to avoid bacteria and food poisoning in your dog. The problem with this is that it kills the natural enzymes and the protein digestibility in your dog. Unlike people, dogs were never meant to eat cooked meat. The solution is simple add raw meat to your dogs kibble, canned food doesn’t count, plus it’s a lot more expensive then raw meat. We suggest not to completely pull your dog off of kibble because there will be days when you may not have the time to feed them raw meat. The last thing you want is a dog that only eats raw meat because it becomes very time consuming feeding your dog raw only. The breeder blaming the dogs genetics is not the real issue here and shouldn’t be a reason to get another dog. I’m sure you love your dog and refuse to replace him as you should never replace your dog just because he can’t gain weight. Just add raw meat and BuffK-9’s True Champ formula and see what happens. Also a weighted vest will speed up the process of natural muscle building. Remember you can work your dog out hard but without the proper nutrition he will not grow properly and won’t maintain healthy weight. To increase healthy muscle weight requires extra nutrients such as raw meat with a quality muscle building supplement such as BuffK-9’s True Champion Dog formula. Any person who tells you that genetics and dog food is all you need may not be completely educated on the subject.


It’s completely safe to give to your dog BuffK-9 True Champion Dog year round for ANY DOG; especially if he works out regularly because the formula protects and prevents muscle atrophy and really helps them with longevity. Just compare a person who works out, eats healthy and adds supplements to their diet on a daily basis. Their muscle tone, skin and joints are in better health compared to a person who drinks a lot, eats fast food and does not have any supplements added to their diet.
NO. There are no ingredients contained in any of our formulas that would increase aggression. True Champion Dog Supplement can increase energy and drive, however.
Our flagship formula improves lean muscle mass which helps maintain mobility. As dogs age, they lose their range of mobility. Its important to pay close attention to the mobility of your dogs’ muscles, which is also factor that’s overlooked often.
10. What kind of RAW food do you recommend?
Raw ground beef with 10 to 20  percent fat is great or raw ground chicken is also great. Give your dog raw meat at least 3 or 4 times a week, make sure to always mix it with a high quality dry dog food kibble of your choice. Never use raw meat by itself because it doesn’t contain all the necessary nutrients your dog needs. That why you always mix it with dry dog food kibble. To take it to the next level of health add BuffK-9’s True Champion Dog formula and watch the results.

Best Dog Food

What’s the Best Dog Food for my Dog?


We receive many inquiries from our customers about what the best dog food would be to feed their dogs. To address this question is not easy. We have to take into account that some dogs are sensitive to chicken, while others are sensitive to beef. Some dogs cannot digest corn while some dogs have no problem with it.

The real problem with finding the best dog food is quality! Quality becomes a major factor in determining the best dog food to feed your pet. Many dog owners know what the “Four D’s” of dog food are: Dead, Diseased, Disabled or Dying. These types of meat products are regularly added to our dog’s diet without us ever thinking about it. To give a graphic example, imagine finding a dead rotting animal in the middle of the road. Heating this dead animal up to a temperature to kill off bacteria, then feeding it to your dog. This is the concept of many mainstream commercial dog foods. It is simply disgusting. Do dog enthusiasts actually believe that their dog’s receive proper nutritional support from this type of dog food?

buff-k9-veterinarian-recommended-dog supplements best dog food



















The sad answer is yes. Many people think that simply feeding their dog the processed, dog food is enough to keep their dog healthy. This is a lie that has circulated many dog forums and dog health information sites for too long. Well then what type of food is the best dog food to feed?

In my opinion and experience as a nutritionist, no commercially processed dog food is acceptable when you really analyze the ingredients. Ask yourself this question, is eating McDonald’s cheeseburgers everyday an acceptable diet to you? No offense to those that do eat cheeseburgers everyday, but it is not acceptable to maintain optimal health.

Finally, what do I recommend for the absolute best dog food? The best dog food is the raw dog food diet. Dogs have been in existence today by eating raw meat in the wild like their relative, the wolf. Feed your dog raw food with a super high quality supplement like True Champion Dog and watch the benefits within 30 days. You won’t believe the transformation and health benefits.

Raw Dog Food, Dog Weight Gain Supplements

Dog Weight Gain Tips from an Actual Customer

All of us have had this problem at one time or another with our dogs but may have not noticed it.  Problems with dog weight gain, no matter how much dog food you feed your dog they don’t gain healthy muscle weight. This is what used to happen to my dog and it took a very long time figuring it out and thousands of dollars later we finally found the answer and the problem was the choice of dog food and choosing the right supplement to for dog weight gainer, muscle weight. My dog Jack is a pitbull who I purchased from a reputable breeder who is known for producing massive dogs. When I got my dog you could tell he was going to be a massive thick muscular pitbull just by looking at his frame but as he grew it seemed that his potential had vanished. I took him to the vet and they ran several tests to determine why he wasn’t gaining weight correctly and the results came back that everything was functioning correctly in his body and he was perfectly healthy. The vet assumed he wasn’t being fed enough. That was not the case I would feed him as much as he wanted so I started looking at other potential problems such as worms. I had been regularly de-worming him as needed but still wouldn’t help with my dogs weight gain problem. I had tried 90 percent of the different quality dog foods on the market with no success.


dog weight gain supplements pitbulls buffk9When I finally broke down and was willing to try anything I talked to a friend whose dog looked like Arnold Schwarzenegger and his recommendation was simple he said feed him a reasonably priced quality dog food, some raw meat and give him BuffK-9 True Champion Dog formula and you will see what happens in 4 weeks. I thought sure buddy your advice will not work because I was so disappointed from all dog foods and dog supplements for dog weight gain I had tried for my dog in the past that failed miserably. Something told me to just try the combo he recommended so I did, and holy Jesus is all I have to say, after a whole year and half of searching for a solution to my dogs not gaining healthy muscle weight I had finally found the combo. Quality dog food, raw meat and BuffK-9 True Champion Dog, thank god companies like these actually do exist. I hope other companies can learn and also start producing real quality products instead of lying to consumers. Well I hope this helps everyone out who has the same problem with their dogs. Rest assured if you try this combo it will work, guaranteed.

Agility Dog Training And Pit Bull Terriers

Agility Dog Training for your Pitbulls

Spending time training your Pit Bull can be very rewarding and fun for you both. It helps build a stronger bond between dog and owner that is important for the happiness of both parties. There are many different types of training that you can choose to do with your Pit Bull, one such is agility dog training.

Agility dog training is the process of teaching your dog to successfully navigate an obstacle course. If the training is successful, your pet should be able to do it by only listening to and obeying your commands. During an event, the dogs are timed and to win must not make any mistakes and must have the fastest time. It takes a lot of practice for a dog to be successful at this, but can be quite fun for both dog and trainer. This activity is especially good for Pit Bulls because it gives them a good outlet for all the extra energy they seem to have.

agility dog training supplements supplies

Most experts recommend not starting agility training until your dog is at least one year old, at least not to enter in a competition before that age. Many owners who train their dogs to participate in these events will purchase their own equipment to have at home, so that they can begin training the dog at an earlier age. Agility dog training equipment can be quite expensive, so some trainers prefer to build their own equipment. Instructions can be found online and in books that should be available either in your local library or bookstore. Owners should be careful to watch the dog for any signs of injury, because occasionally working on agility training while the puppy is still growing will put a lot of strain on joints and bones that are not fully conditioned yet. It is recommended to have your dog cleared by a veterinarian before beginning any type of agility dog training.

The dog should also understand and obey basic commands before beginning any other type of training. Any type of training helps dog and owner to build a better relationship with each other, allowing them to work better and better together as time goes on. You should also work through any behavior or aggression issues your Pit Bull may have before considering agility training. The results will be less satisfactory and take longer to achieve if the dog is also working through other issues.

Most Pit Bull owners that are serious about their dog competing in agility competitions will enroll him in a training class, at least to help teach him the basics, then work with the dog on their own to enhance what he has learned. Being in a class will also help your dog work on his socialization, which will make him behave better around other dogs. Pit Bulls tend to want to fight when around other dogs, especially those of the same gender.

The most important thing to remember is no matter what type of training you do with your Pit Bull, you both should enjoy it. Spending time together will help build a better bond, leading to a lasting relationship. Whether you want your dog to compete or not, the benefits for both you and the dog are many.

Agility Builds Confidence in Your Dog

Is your dog timid around people or other dogs?  Is your dog sensitive to sounds?  Agility training can provide the environment and structure to build confidence in your dog.  Agility classes are a great place for people to learn about the sport and learn how to train, but the timid dog may take a long time before he is ready to venture from under your chair or off your lap.

A timid or shy dog can only learn inside their comfort zone.  So, training must begin where they feel safe and behaviors must be taught in very small increments. Home will probably be the best place to train and have learning take place for your dog.

So, how do you train at home?  You will need guidelines and equipment. There is a multitude of websites that can give you information on agility training.  There are also books and videos that will give details and visual aids and lesson plans for beginners thru expert levels.


There is a variety of equipment that is useful and helpful to have at home.  Equipment recommendations are based on your available space and location of training.  Do you have a large yard that will hold 10 obstacles? Do you have a small yard where you will need setup equipment and then tear down before you can setup again?  Will you be training in your garage or basement, or as some agility addicts, in your living room.

For the timid dogs make sure your equipment is safe and sturdy.  The pause table is a good place to begin your agility training.   A 12” high pause table, with adjustable legs for later use, is a good starting place for all size dogs. Remember with your shy dog, setup your table in an area that is very familiar to your dog.  If your dog barks at anything new, just leave your pause table in your house or yard for several days, let your dog inspect and smell it on his own or with a little coaxing, but don’t push to fast, remember baby steps with the insecure dog.   With treats in a dish or his favorite toy placed on the table encourage your dog to get up on the table.  This may take more than one lesson, be patient.  If your timid dog looses interest in food or toys when you attempt something new, trying holding him and you sit on the table.  If your dog is too big to hold, have him on leash and you sit on the table.  If he backs away coax him, only treat or reward him when he comes to you, never when he’s pulling back away from you or the table.

Eventually, you want your dog to be able to jump on the table with your cue word, “Table”, “Box”, “Kennel”, whatever word you use, Stay on the table as you back away and then Come when you call. Build your distance slowly so that your dog is not pushed to soon.

From Pause Table to Contact Trainer is a nice transition for shy dog.  A Contact Trainer comes in different designs.  We recommend a 3-Piece Contact Trainer that has one mini A-frame side, a Pause Table, and then a mini Dog-walk side.  Your dog can Sit on the table and then be coaxed down the A-frame side or the Dog-walk side.  Just remember with the shy dog, training is done in increments, slowly and comfortably, with a little push to stretch him, but not enough to overwhelm him to cause a shutdown.

You can follow the above techniques introducing new obstacles as your dog is able to succeed.  As your dog succeeds on each new piece of equipment you will see his confidence grow.

Aggression When Another Dog Invades Her Space

Dear Adam,

Hi, I have a 3 year-old Australian Cattle Dog. She is a wonderfully obedient dog, canine good citizen certified and everything. She is very obedient and good natured to people, however she is very dominant when it comes to other dogs. Recently I have been having problems with her snapping at other dogs if they come up to her while she is on a leash. This is not a problem if I tell her to sit and the other dog stays a normal distance away. She doesn’t like dogs invading her space and standing over her (she is only 35 pounds, so most dogs tower over her). I call it her “Napoleon Complex”. I tried to work on the problem by putting a muzzle on her and setting up situations so I can correct her, but she realizes that she is in no position to show the other dog who is boss while muzzled and refrains. We have recently started therapy dog training classes, which she is doing very well in.

dog joints

Like I said she is a perfect angel around people. In a therapy situation she is unlikely to encourage other dogs on or off leash who will be allowed to be in a position close enough to upset her, however, if some instance did occur, I would feel uncomfortable with her snapping at another dog. In most instances, I can prevent a situation where she would be tempted to snap from occurring, however, there are some instances that can’t be avoided. Do you have any suggestions? I’m debating whether I should discontinue her therapy dog classes.

Thank You,

Dear Katie,

This is really more of a handler sigue. It’s your responsibility to NOT LET other dogs invade her space. Now, you can correct her for the aggression – but at the same time, you must show her that she can trust you, and that you will not let strange dogs from another pack wonder up and get in her face. This is the job of the pack leader – to protect the pack. And you’re not doing your job by letting strangers off the street walk up and get too close. I would recommend a walking stick or a stun gun.

As for the therapy dog training – I would recommend that you continue, but without seeing the dog in person, this will ultimately be a judgement call which you must make for yourself and your dog.

That’s all for now, folks!
