Dog size

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anybody has an idea how big or small my dog might be from past dogs. The parents were both around 60 pounds, but my dog looks small, compared to other dogs. At 17 weeks old she was 19 pounds. Do you think she will get to the 60 pound range?

Thanks- Jakeboy

My guess would be she won't reach 60lbs, but its just a guess. I have heard doubling a dogs weight at 4 months(16 weeks) Is a good estimate of its adult weight. That would put her at only 38 lbs, so I doubt she will reach 60.

I think that might be somewhat breed-dependant. My dog was about 60lbs at 4 months, is 140lbs at 10 months, and still has some growing to do smile

Sounds close, but just keep the dog on good quality food and as much as it needs and don't skip on worming. It may not get as big but probably close. Some have huge growth spirts at diferent stages too. If you kennel or crate the dog during the day make sure it is quite big for room, I have been told that crampt 1/4's for a pup can stunt growth too, not sure if that is true but why take the risk. Good luck.

    •   Really, how deep?  Head scratch?    Oh, I think I'm smelling river.

    • that worked today    friend was throwing jerk bait and 4 nice eyes slammed it. funny!   
    • Cooler than normal temperatures, clouds and rain dominated the last week and slowed down the spring progression, including bird migrations and fish spawning. However, a warm-up in the next couple of weeks could change that quickly.River systems across the entire state are running very high, and while the Memorial Day weekend has traditionally been a popular paddling weekend, recreational safety specialists are cautioning that only experienced and properly outfitted paddlers should be on rivers when they are running this high. The Lower Wisconsin River set a flow rate record this week of 42,000 cubic feet per second at Muscoda and there are no sandbars available for camping. The river is running fast and deep, with some boat launches under water.Fewer anglers were out this week due to the rain and cooler weather and those that were reported mixed success. Along Green Bay one hot spot has been out of the mouth of the Pensaukee River where anglers have been catching limits of walleye. White bass anglers had a great deal of success, with some harvesting more than 20 fish from a few hours of fishing. .
    • I believe they use the same blades so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.   
    • So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill?  Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick!
