Swimming and running in deep show has brought out the 'best' muscle in our dogs.
Have you tried a higher grade food than Eukanuba?

I don't think alot of people know that it dropped in quality.
Does any-one have any cheap successful exercises for muscle definition?

No offense, but are there any cheap & lazy successful ways for people to lose weight & get fit? No. So of course there is no cheating with an animal.
First of all, just running is going to trim the dog up, but it will also build up lean muscle tissue....meaning the dog will be cardiovascularly fit & definitely lean with nice muscle tone, but bulky will NOT be in it's description. Look at track athletes & cross country athletes. They are slim n trim.
To build up muscle volume, just as in people, one would need to incorporate weight resistant exercises for their dog as well. Weight pulls are the most popular method.
However, I do want to make one thing clear. In order for the dog to be in all around physical shape, a HUGE contribution must come from you, the owner. It's not an overnight process, it's not a week long process, & it's even not a month long process. Reggie Bush didn't get into shape in a month......it took years & years of carefully thought out training consisting of various types of exercises & drills & a proper diet. Don't cheat your dog & whatever you do, don't expect him to ever fulfill the glorious byb version of a "pit"....the Gotti look. APBTs are not muscle bound monsters.....they are sleek & trim athletes.

I would have lost it if I didn't run him, especially early on. He would have driven me absolutely totally insane completely bonkers
