Is there any online site that tells me how heavy my dobie puppy SHOULD be (month by month would be nice!)? My pup and I went to see his vet yesterday, who told us that he needed to put on a little bit of weight. Hes almost 6 months old, eats 3 times a day, and seems average to me. However, I've been trying to feed him more to help "fatten" him up. Does anyone know how heavy a 5 1/2 month Doberman pup should be?
A Doberman that is 6 months should NOT weigh only 18 – 20 lbs..
A Doberman that is approx 10 weeks old would weigh approx 20 lbs.. Your 5 1/2 mos old Doberman should be approx 45-50 lbs.
You don't want him to be heavy, you want him to grow up first, then worry about him filling out.. He is better off to stay on the thin side rather than to fatten him up. If the vet thinks that he should put on a bit of weight.. You should make sure you are feeding a good quality food.. feed what the bag suggests.. Don't get him fat tho.. People think it's cute, but it's not, it's hard on them when they are growing that quickly at that age..
