Puppy Growth Chart
The chart above will also give you an idea of what you might expect your puppy to weigh at different stages in his development. Again, this is closely linked to the size of the breed he belongs to.
The example given here is based on the growth rate of a Toy Poodle. Dogs of this kind of size and weight typically stop growing somewhere between 6 and 8 months of age,
Small and Medium Dogs
The example given of a small dog is based on a Miniature Schnauzer. The medium dog is an English Springer Spaniel. Small to medium sized dogs tend to have completed their growth by around the end of the first year.
In this example the growth rate of the large dog is based on the growth rate of a moderate sized German Shepherd Dog. Most larger breeds will finally complete their growth somewhere between 18 and 24 months, though they may be close to their adult height by their first birthday.
Our Giant Dog is a Great Dane. Some giant breeds reach even greater weights than this and grow for even longer. Some giant breeds will continue growing for up to three years.
