When do they stop growing

Discussion in 'Dog Chat' started by cinnamontoast, Jan 12, 2011.


  1. My post were based on the upward movement SL! I do not think there are many of our breed size at least that show much upward growth after 12 month!

    No DT, but as you know, growth isn't limited to height. They can look gangly for ages, and you think they've suddenly gained in stature, only to find out, no, they've just filled out, finally ;)
     
  3. My replies have ONLY been based with response to the height! which I took it as to what the OP were asking! Never had I said in any post I have ever made that they do not continue to 'fill out' improve muscle tone' whatever!

    Full height is usually achieved somewhere between 9 - 12 months. Dogs continue to grow for a bit and bulk out, but don't usually get any taller after this age.

    no no, wasnt stating it as fact. just from my own experience. kody got weighed today, and he has put on another 0.2kg. he is pretty much spot on with the breed standard for a beagle (not that thats gospel).
    i know of a lot of beagles who continue gaining weight well after 18months...just usually a bit too much :p


    every dog is different :)
