Ear cropping is entirely a personal choice. The decision to crop your XL Bully puppy’s ears rests solely with you.

Ear cropping is a debated topic in the dog community. Some see it as enhancing the breed’s look; others view it as unnecessary. Additionally, there are some opinions on this surgery being for reasons other than aesthetic. Many feel it assists with ear health of the Bully. This article covers the process, ideal age, choosing a vet, and aftercare for American Bullies. It is important to mention that over 20 breeds have a breed standard where ear cropping is performed. These breeds rarely face negativity in regards to this surgery. Bully breeds discriminatorily get more criticism and misinformation regarding ear cropping.

What is American Bully Ear Cropping?

Ear cropping is a surgery performed by a vet where part of the dog’s ear is removed to achieve a certain look. The style can vary: short, medium, or long crops. XL American Bullies typically have short or medium crops. Long crops are performed on other breeds such as the Doberman Pinscher or Great Dane, so this style of crop won’t be discussed. Some believe it enhances the breed’s appearance and meets breed standards. Others argue it’s unnecessary and injurious. Regulations vary; some countries have banned this surgery altogether. Like all the other misinformation surrounding American Bullies and Pit Bulls, it is a myth that ear cropping is performed for dog fighting purposes, historically and now. Ear cropping actually originated from practices related to show dogs and hunting dogs.

Ideal Age for Ear Cropping

According to many vets and XL Bully breeders, the best age for cropping is 8 to 12 weeks. Puppies at this age have soft cartilage, making the surgery easier and less traumatic. Younger puppies also recover faster. However, some vets will only perform the surgery when a puppy reaches both a specific age and weight. Depending on how the puppy grows, this could mean the puppy’s age may exceed the 8-to-12-week average at the time it reaches the required weight. Additionally. Some vets may require the puppy to be vaccinated for some illnesses, including rabies, before they will perform any surgery. Rabies immunizations are given at 12 to 16 weeks of age. If a rabies vaccine is required, this means your XL Bully puppy may not be able to have the surgery until 12 to 16 weeks of age. It is best to call many vets and ask these types of questions before scheduling an ear cropping surgery. 

Different Ear Crop Styles

Short Crop

This style involves cropping the ears to a shorter length, typically leaving them standing erect. The ears are usually straight and close to the head, giving the dog a sleek and alert appearance.

Show Crop

A longer crop that is often seen in show dogs. The ears are trimmed to a medium length and may have a slight curve or taper towards the tip. This style accentuates the dog’s head structure and can give a more elegant and refined look.

Battle Crop

This is one of the popular American Bully ear crop styles that is more aggressive and intimidating. The battle crop involves cropping the ears very short, almost to the base of the head. This style can give the dog a distinctive and powerful appearance.

Medium Crop

This style falls between the short and show crops in terms of length. The ears are cropped to a moderate length, standing erect but slightly longer than the short crop. This style offers a balanced and proportional look for the American Bully.

Choosing a Vet for Ear Cropping

When choosing a vet for ear cropping, it’s crucial to find one with experience in ear cropping, particularly on American Bullies. Start by asking for recommendations from other owners and breeders in your area, as they can often point you to skilled professionals. Some breeders may offer ear cropping as part of their services, but be aware that this might require them to keep your XL Bully puppy onsite longer. It’s important to select a vet who is familiar with the breed’s standard and knows how the crop should look. During your consultation, discuss all aspects of the procedure, including pain management, post-operative care, and potential risks. Remember, any surgery or use of anesthesia carries significant risks, whether it’s for ear cropping, spaying, neutering, or even routine teeth cleaning. Ensuring you have a knowledgeable vet can help mitigate these risks and ensure the best outcome for your puppy

Aftercare Tips

Follow Veterinary Instructions

Stick to the vet’s post-op care instructions, including medications, cleaning, and bandage changes.

Keep the Ears Clean and Dry

Prevent infection by keeping ears clean and dry. Use mild antiseptic as directed.

Monitor for Signs of Infection

Watch for redness, swelling, discharge, or odor. Contact the vet if these occur.

Prevent Trauma

Stop your dog from scratching or rubbing ears. Use an Elizabethan collar (ecollar) if needed.

Limit Activity

Restrict movement to avoid strain on ears. Avoid activities that could cause trauma.

Patience and Time

Healing can take weeks. Be patient as ears may droop before standing erect.

Diet and Nutrition

Provide a balanced diet and ensure access to fresh water to support healing.

If You Don’t Like the Crop, Let ‘Em Flop

Ear cropping is entirely a personal choice. Unless specified in a breeder’s contract, the decision to crop your XL Bully puppy’s ears rests solely with you. Some breeders and handlers believe that uncropped ears may make it more challenging to present a dog in the show ring, but it is neither a fault nor a penalty. Additionally, leaving the ears natural avoids the risks and aftercare associated with the cropping procedure. Natural ears can also add a unique charm and character to your dog’s appearance. Ultimately, whether you choose to crop or not, the health and well-being of your puppy should always come first.

Making an Informed Decision

Understanding ear cropping is vital for making informed decisions about this surgery. Consider the impact on the dog’s health and quality of life. Whether you support or oppose cropping, prioritize the health and happiness of your XL American Bully.

How To Put Muscle on Your XL Bully Sun, 02 Jun 2024 20:38:36 +0000 Kingdom Bully Kennels

Learn how to bulk up your XL Bully to its fullest genetic potential.

The post How To Put Muscle on Your XL Bully appeared first on Kingdom Bullies.

Kingdom Bully Kennels

Much of the muscle tone and bulkiness in XL American Bullies is genetic. However, you can bulk up your Bully to its fullest potential. If you want to learn how to add serious muscle to your American Bully, we’ll cover a few effective methods. Just like people, dogs can bulk up with increased muscle mass and strength. And just like in humans, fat weight is not muscle. Too much fat weight can actually harm your Bully’s organs. These are healthy ways to add muscle mass (not fat) to your dog’s frame. Ready to help your XL Bully bulk up?

Resistance Workouts for Your XL Bully

Just as you might hit the gym to gain muscle, your dog needs resistance workouts to build muscle. But since your American Bully can’t exactly join Planet Fitness, what kind of exercises should they do? There are lots of exercises a Bully can do, with running and swimming probably being the most popular forms of exercise. And while running and swimming are great, they are typically more of a cardiovascular workout and not ideal for adding muscle mass. But cardio is great for defining muscle on the Bully (for the chiseled look). So, you definitely want some kind of cardio in your dog’s exercise routine. To build muscle, you need to find a way to add resistance to your Bully’s exercise routine. Note that although swimming is cardio, it is also subtle resistance.

Here are some effective resistance workouts that can help your XL American Bully build more muscle:

Weight Pull

Attach a harness to your Bully and get them to pull a weight. Weight is often in the form of bricks, concrete, or a weight from your free weights. The added weight increases the resistance, helping to build stronger leg and chest muscles in your American Bully. Start with a small weight and gradually increase it over an appropriate timeframe. Note that heavy weight pull exercises should not be added to a Bully puppy’s regimen (although you can get them used to wearing the harness with nominal weight added while they are still puppies). Wait until about 18 to 24 months of age, when your Bully is finished growing.

Weighted Vest

Just like to weight pulling, a weighted vest adds resistance and makes it more challenging for your dog to run. A weight vest turns any movement into a resistance workout. You could do something as simple as a throwing a ball with your Bully to help them build stronger muscles. Again, this is something you don’t want to do until your dog is 18 to 24 months of age. Doing so can cause a lot of harm to your Bully puppy’s bones, joints, growth plates, and tendons.

Flirt Pole

A flirt pole is simple to construct. Move the pole and encourage your dog to chase and leap for the toy attached to the string. The aim is to get your Bully to run and jump higher each time. It’s like playing a game of keep away, enticing them to reach for the prize. This jumping action helps build strong rear leg muscles.

Spring Pole

A spring pole is a muscle-building exercise tool for dogs that consists of a spring attached to a pole with a rope or toy hanging from it. Bullies engage with the spring pole by tugging and pulling, which mimics natural prey behavior. This activity helps build muscles in the neck, chest, and jaws, and also strengthens the legs as your Bully pulls and jumps. Additionally, using a spring pole can burn off excess energy, improve obedience, and enhance impulse control in dogs. It should be mentioned that some state or local ordinances consider a spring pole dog fighting paraphernalia (I wish you could see my eye roll when I typed that). So just be aware of your local regulations regarding having a spring pole on your property.

Be mindful to take it easy and not over-exert your dog during workouts. Allow their bodies time to recuperate by offering lots of water and sufficient rest between workouts.

Muscle Building Food Regime

Exercise is important to gaining muscle for that chiseled muscular XL Bully look, but it’s not enough. Your XL American Bully will still need the ingredients necessary for building new muscle. They need calories, nutrients, and protein. Begin by selecting the right food. Opt for a high-calorie, high-protein dog kibble. Protein aids in muscle repair and growth for your Bully. Calories provide the energy needed to recover from exercise, keeping your dog active. Additionally, think about incorporating a full raw or partial raw diet. For more feeding tips, check out our YouTube channel.

Be cautious not to overfeed your Bully. Carrying extra fat is hard on your dog and frankly, it’s not appealing. Chubby Bully puppies might be cute, but an overweight adult Bully looks disproportionate (the large body makes their head appear incredibly small). The extra weight drains their energy and stresses their heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver.

Use Muscle-Building Supplements

High-grade, nutrient-rich supplements can play a crucial role in your dog’s muscle growth. Nuvet Supplements provide essential nutrients that can enhance your dog’s capacity to build new muscle.

Rest is Key for Your Bully

Remember, muscles grow when your Bully rests, not while they’re working out. Avoid pushing them too hard and ensure they get plenty of sleep. Allow recovery time between training sessions to help them stay energized and reap the maximum benefits from their exercise.

These methods have helped our dogs build healthy muscles over the years. However, they reflect our personal experiences and are not a substitute for professional advice. Always consult your vet before starting any strenuous exercise program with your dog.

Basic Tips For Training Your XL Bully Puppy Fri, 31 May 2024 04:42:05 +0000 Kingdom Bully Kennels

Proper training is crucial to ensure a happy, well-adjusted XL Bully companion.

The post Basic Tips For Training Your XL Bully Puppy appeared first on Kingdom Bullies.

Kingdom Bully Kennels

Bringing an American Bully puppy into your home is a rewarding experience. These dogs, despite their tough looks, are affectionate and intelligent. Proper training is crucial to ensure a happy, well-adjusted companion. Here’s a straightforward guide to training your American Bully.

Training Your XL Bully Puppy

Start early. Begin training as soon as you bring your XL Bully home. Bully puppies are more receptive to learning than adult dogs. Early training sets the stage for good behavior and helps with socialization. Focus on simple commands like sit, stay, and come. Be consistent with commands and rewards. Use positive reinforcement to encourage good behavior. Early socialization with people and other dogs is important. It builds confidence and reduces fear. Training early helps avoid bad habits and creates a strong bond between you and your Bully.

Positive Reinforcement

Reward your Bully puppy for good behavior with treats, praise, or affection. This method encourages them to repeat positive actions and builds a trusting relationship. Consistency is key. Use short, clear commands and reward immediately. Avoid negative reinforcement; it can create fear and anxiety. Positive reinforcement builds confidence and strengthens your bond with your dog. Always focus on what you want your Bully to do, not what you don’t want. This approach helps create a happy, well-behaved dog.


Expose your Bully to different people, environments, and other animals early on. This helps them become well-adjusted and reduces fear-based behaviors. Start with short, positive experiences. Reward calm and friendly behavior with treats and praise. Gradually introduce new situations to build confidence. Consistent socialization helps prevent aggression and anxiety. Early exposure to various stimuli ensures your Bully grows into a stable and confident dog. Proper socialization is key to a balanced and well-behaved companion.

Consistent Commands

Use the same commands for actions like sit, stay, come, and down. Consistency helps your Bully understand what you expect from them. Always use the same words and tone. Repetition is key. Make sure everyone in the household uses the same commands. This avoids confusion and speeds up learning. Reinforce commands with rewards. Clear, consistent commands build a strong foundation for obedience. It helps your Bully become well-behaved and reliable.

Obedience Training

Teach essential commands to instill discipline. Obedience training makes your Bully safer and easier to manage. Start with basic commands like sit, stay, and come. Use short, clear commands and be consistent. Reward good behavior with treats and praise. Avoid using punishment or negative reinforcement; it can cause fear and confusion. Obedience training builds trust and respect between you and your Bully. It helps prevent unwanted behaviors and ensures your dog listens in different situations.

Leash Training

Given their strength, leash training is important. Teach your XL American Bully to walk on a leash without pulling to ensure safe and enjoyable walks. Start with a short, sturdy leash and a comfortable collar. Use consistent commands like “heel” and “stop.” Reward your dog for walking calmly beside you. Avoid yanking or harsh corrections. Practice in a quiet area before moving to busier places. Consistent training helps build good leash manners and makes walks more pleasant for both of you.

Behavioral Boundaries

Set clear rules for acceptable behavior. Consistent boundaries help your Bully understand what is allowed and what isn’t. Be firm and clear when correcting bad behavior. Use simple commands and be consistent. Reward good behavior immediately. Avoid mixed signals; they confuse your dog. Establishing boundaries early helps prevent bad habits. Reinforce the rules every day. This approach ensures your Bully knows the limits and respects them. Boundaries create a stable environment for your dog to thrive.

Avoid Harsh Punishments

Use gentle corrections instead of harsh punishments. Positive reinforcement is more effective and builds trust. Focus on redirecting bad behavior with clear commands. Reward good behavior immediately. Harsh punishments can lead to fear and anxiety, damaging your relationship with your dog. Consistency and patience are key. Create a positive environment where your Bully feels safe and understood. This approach fosters a strong bond and encourages better behavior over time.

Regular Exercise for Your Bully Puppy

American Bullies need regular exercise to stay healthy and prevent boredom. Daily walks and play sessions are essential. Aim for at least 60 minutes of exercise each day. Activities like fetch, running, and interactive games help burn energy and keep your Bully engaged. Consistent exercise routines also improve their physical and mental health. Avoid overexertion, especially in hot weather. Balanced exercise ensures your Bully remains fit, happy, and well-behaved.

Patience and Consistency

Be patient and consistent. Your Bully needs time to learn. Consistency helps reinforce good behavior. Stick to a routine with regular training sessions. Use the same commands and rewards every time. Avoid frustration; dogs sense your mood. Keep training sessions short but frequent. Celebrate small victories and progress. Consistent training builds trust and helps your Bully understand what’s expected. Over time, your patience and consistency will pay off, resulting in a well-behaved dog.

Professional Training Classes

Consider professional dog training classes. Trainers can provide valuable insights and help with specific behavioral issues. These classes also offer a structured environment for socialization. Your dog learns to interact with other dogs and people safely. Training classes build a solid foundation of obedience and discipline. They also strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Consistent training from professionals ensures your dog learns good habits that last a lifetime.

Build Trust

Trust is key to effective training. Show consistency, reliability, and patience to build a strong bond with your Bully puppy. Always be clear and firm with commands. Reward good behavior promptly. Avoid harsh corrections; they can damage trust. Spend quality time together outside of training sessions. Consistent routines and fair treatment help your Bully feel secure. Trust takes time to build but is essential for a well-behaved dog.

In a Nutshell

Training your American Bully is a journey. Use positive reinforcement, be consistent, and show patience. Celebrate progress and enjoy the companionship of a well-trained Bully. Set clear rules and stick to them. Keep training sessions short and focused. Use simple commands and reward good behavior right away. Be firm but fair, and avoid harsh corrections. Building trust and respect takes time, but it’s worth the effort. Enjoy the bond you create with your Bully through consistent and patient training. At Kingdom Bullies, we are more than just an American Bully breeder with XL Bully puppies for sale.
