    I have actually seen dogs where people put alot of weight on them before they were done growing and there front ends were shorter than there backends.. I would suggest not even doing this on a young dog and on a grown dog not going over three pounds.. I think there are alot better ways to tone your dog than the weighted collars.. but to each their own

    :eek: Are you serious? So now pit bulls are immune to cervical disc problems as well? Unfortunately not. Using too much weight (especially on a young growing dog....& well, an old dog too) can cause serious problems such from arthritis to herniated discs, to compression fractures. These injuries occur more commonly than you think. And to have a dog who has very limited mobility in his neck is very painful for the dog & for the owner to have to watch. Worst case scenario is paralysis. I'm with txheadhunter on this one, I think there are better ways to tone your dog other than weighted collars.
