    Hey does testosterone boosters actually boost testosterone in neutered dogs... My vet tech friend says it would but I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried... Because honestly I never wanted my dog neutered my friend gave me him without telling me he was neutered lol

    Can ask why you didnt want a dog that was neutered ? (Neutering prevents many health conditions as well as helps with behaviour issues
    Not sure how your boy look like but bulldogs are not naturally as muscular as pits anyway-so your dog will be "as big" as his genes .
    Also lack of testosterone (or small quantities ) in neutered males cribs their behaviour ;-)
    Not sure why you were thinking of testosterone boosters -i can only think of one reason -muscle growth .
    it is something people think will work quickly
    I suggest engaging is some sporting activities like weight pulling instead to build muscle -we kept ours lean and they loved weight pulling (both of my males were neutered -with decent muscle weight)
    Ps i would love to see pic of your boy

    They're bred to be independent thinkers due to the nature of the work that they were bred for - both English Bulldogs and Pitbulls. So, to find a pure bred EB or Pit that doesn't have that independent streak is rare. You just need to outsmart your dog to avoid stubborness - usually by finding his motivator - that is, looking for that one thing that your dog will do anything for. In my case, Bullie will do anything for a piece of sliced bread. Angus will do anything for a scratch behind his ears.

    I'd stay away from testosterone boosters.

    Yes, If you have ever read about the "original" bulldogs, they were very tenacious, and bred to "bull bait". Get a bull by the nose-and hang on!! Got to be fearless and pretty darn STUBBORN to hang on to a 2,000 lb. bull. So fear of us? NOT! Over the years, the dispositions have been greatly improved-but one trait pretty much remained-guess which one! Also-how could someone NOT noticed that the dog was neutered? Unless he had "Neuticles?" Giving testosterone would probably flip the poor dog out! Me thinks only a MAN would come up with an idea like that!! Just sayin.....Please don't hate me, couldn't help it.....................
