When do they stop growing?

17 posts in this topic

Just wondering when I can expect my lab pup to stop growing - not weight but leg and body length. Thanks.

my dog was done growing height wise around 14 months, and then filled out until about 2 years old.

Cooter,

Our great dane was 38lbs at 11.5 weeks, 49lbs at 13.5 weeks. He's 15 weeks now--we'll see what he weighs Thursday when he gets his rabies shot. 7 cups of food a day cry I've already got a monster on my hands grin

Kind of in disagreement here. With a lab, you'll have a pretty good size guide by 6 months. May see an inch or so in height and couple inches of length. Always tell our customers to look at their 6 month old and add 15-20 pounds and that will be your dog. Obviously, there are anomalies but you should be safe with my estimate. Have an 65 pound 11 year old right now. Just let her free feed for the next couple months and she would probably bump up against the century mark. Show me a lab that doesn't love to eat and I'll direct you to the nearest vet.

I agree with that especially with females. My females were usuually about done growing height wise by six months. they put a few pounds on in the next couple months so I'd say by 8-12 months my females were close to max working size that they were going to get. My males seem to grow height wise up to about 8-9 months but put on a bit a of weight up to 2 years. Bit of weight meaning maybe 10-15 lbs or so.

My female pup is closing on 6 months, and height wise she seems like a shrimp to me. She's 42 pounds and seems miniature height wise. Should we open up the pantry and see if we can grow her out? We've been going with about 4 cups a day, and she is in good condition, not too skinny and not overweight.

An anomaly to the 6 month comments perhaps?

6 months seems awful early. I would think shes got a bit of growing left to do.

6 1/2 months and not even close to done yet. 12 cups a day. I'm guessing he weighs about 110-120 right now. For reference, I'm 6'2" 230.

12 cups (of food) per day?

Yup! And you can still see his ribs. He should slow down and ease up on the food consumption in the next 6 months.

He's a Great Dane. I'm guessing he'll be 36"-38" at the withers and probably 170-190 pounds when all is said and done.

That is awesome. From your avatar, he really looked like a bloodhound. And to quote from Jaws..."You're gonna need a bigger boat" laugh

Yes, he has grown into his ears a bit since I took that photo smile And I now have a bigger boat, although that just gives him more room to make trouble. He broke my bilge pump switch on Saturday frown

    • I see that the morans are still falling for the fake shiat.......   WASHINGTON — D.C. police have identified the man who was arrested after firing a gun inside of a restaurant Sunday afternoon in Northwest D.C. Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, of Salisbury, North Carolina, told police he went to Comet Ping Pong, a popular pizza place in the 5000 block of Connecticut Avenue Northwest, to “self-investigate” the conspiracy theory generated by a fake online news story, D.C. police said in a news release Sunday night. Comet Ping Pong was the target of the conspiracy theory that went viral before the election. The fake story claimed the pizza shop was home to child-trafficking, and that there was a connection between the pizzeria and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Initially, D.C. officials had said that while the motive for the incident was unclear, it wasn’t likely tied to the fake news story. At around 3 p.m., police responded to reports of a man with a firearm at Comet Ping Pong. The suspect entered the restaurant and pointed his firearm in the direction of an employee, police said. The employee was able to escape and call police. The suspect had ordered everyone out of the restaurant then fired his assault rifle inside before he was taken into custody. Two firearms were found inside the restaurant and an additional weapon was found inside Welch’s vehicle. Welch was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon (gun), police said. There were no reports of injuries. Police said the area was safe and that the incident had not been a terrorist situation. Comet Ping Pong’s owner, James Alefantis, made a statement late Sunday night after the shooting, denying what he called “malicious and utterly false accusations.” He said that employees were getting the day off Monday, but hoped that operations would resume in a few days. Alefantis added, “I hope that those involved in fanning these flames will take a moment to contemplate what happened here today and to stop right away.”
    • 5 dollar bubbler, 5 dollar cooler and the theft of my wifes hot glue gun for 5 minutes and I have a minnow bucket that keeps them cool in the summer and wont freeze in the winter.  toss in a 94 cent scoop that hangs from a string and that's a price that's hard to beat at the store.
    • It's neat and I love looking at stuff like the Geniejar but it seems they are solving a problem I never had.
    • I've used the cheap vinyl fly line too but always get the coil effect unless you weight it fairly heavily.That can make you a lot further off the bottom than you think when you use the weight to set them. It coil even changes the depth if you set them with a flasher. I tried the new Suffix tip up line, they have braided and vinyl, and the vinyl was limper than my usual stuff but the braided was a real hook magnet. It's so thin if you break a strand or two you've lost 1/2 your strength it would seem. Is this all we have to think about? Come on Ice! 
    • How about "Minions Cheer for Crony Capitalism"?.....  
    • You should be able to find a way better price than that.  We had a 21' done for under $1k, and a 24' done for $1100.  
    • I'm a huge fan of fly line.  Remarkable hard to tangle or knot.  
    • I think the money is front loaded but the cap hit lives with us forever. The NHL also penalized these kinds of contracts in the last CBA so we are likely stuck with it no matter what happens, not sure on the details but I'm sure we will hear all about them if things get bad. We should get some cap relief when we lose a guy to Vegas this off season so sort term we aren't too bad. Koivu off the books after next season, Pommers the season after next unless we buy him out which is possible. The Suter and Parise contracts are going to hurt us in the long run no matter what we do, it's just something we 100% had to do at the time to become a competitive team.

      It's just too bad that Pommers and an injured Parise had their production tail off because some of the younger guys are having nice seasons and for us to have any kind of a chance at a cup we needed everyone clicking at once. Not that it can't still happen but it just makes it harder for us.
    • Excuse me, I meant fly fishing line, not backing.  I use a level taper (uniform diameter throughout entire line length).  I don't know what the coating is but it is fairly intermediate sinking rate.  Just don't get floating line.
