    I've been really surprised by how much variation there is in puppy weights, and it just goes to show how difficult it is to set rules for 'right weight' when they are growing. I'd be interested to know what all your puppies weigh / weighed at what age..... just to see in one place how different they can be. (It might also be reassuring for new owners who are worried that their pup isn't 'the right weight'.)

    Pongo was 10kg at 10 weeks of age.
    He is now about 20kg at 22 weeks of age.

    What do your puppies weigh?

    Shea is 12 weeks old and weighs about 20 pounds (I think that's around 9kg.) She is out of American field stock so she will be lankier when she is grown. Personally I prefer English labs but she's not mine so I didn't make the choice. :)

    Well we all know who gets the award for smallest puppy.....

    Most average sized labs weigh about 5-6kg at 8 weeks old, true to form Penny was an impressive 2.6kg at 8 weeks of age!

    Oooh she's tiny just like me (a grand 5feet tall exactly haha)

    Albert weighed 7.25kg when we got him at 8 weeks. He will be 14 weeks on Friday and currently weighs (yesterday) 13.6kg. (30lbs). He is a big boy and has been from the off! But he is from show lines and his brother is identical weight.

    Maisie weighs 6kg at 10 weeks. She was 4.5kg at 8 weeks. I think she is a little underweight, and hoping that a change of food will help.

    Harvey's weight went like this:

    8 weeks - 3.5kg
    12 weeks - 8.5kg
    15 weeks - 13.5kg
    22 weeks - 21kg
    27 weeks - 24.8kg
    31 weeks - 25.5kg
    36 weeks - somewhere between 27.5kg and 31kg - Harvey seemed to think the scales were a trampoline on this day ::)

    Re: How much does your puppy weigh?

    Hi, I found it really interesting reading the variations of our dogs weight. I constantly worry that Murphy is too thin, then I worry he's too fat. Think I just worry ;)

    Murphy's weight has been as follows:
    8 weeks 5.3 kg
    10 weeks 6.4 kg
    12 weeks 7.8 kg
    14 weeks 9.6 kg
    16 weeks 11.3 kg

    He is now 18 weeks, I'll get him weighed in a couple of weeks when he gets wormed again. However he Seems to be on the lower end of the scales looking at others on here. Oh no I'll worry about that now !!!!! :(

    Try not to worry!

    They are all so different. I can see much lighter built dogs than my Charlie - Charlie is a chunky dog - he looks a lot heavier, but actually isn't when I compare the weights of other dogs that look smaller and lighter than him. It 's just odd. I think tracking a dog's weight is a good thing to do. But comparisons of weight between dogs pretty meaningless.
