Great job in Excel, and he's almost off the chart!

Now I'll be REALLY impressed if you can take the data from this site

http://www.nwk9.com/weight_height.htm

put a line behind your puppies on the graph, and so you can compare how well he's doing to the 'average' GSD.

I know I couldn't figure that out, so good luck! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/popcornSmiley.gif" alt="" />

Here's a new chart/spreadsheet comparing Zeus to the standards for male and female GSD's. Zeus is the blue line which is kind of hard to see...

Zeus Vs. Male and Female GSD Standards

Ok you got me. I'M IMPRESSED!!!!

That would have been a cool program for me to work on when my pups were growing.

Is it something you can post or send people with puppies that want to keep a similiar chart? Can you post it (and instructions) for us to down load? Or is it just as simple as deleting Zeus's info and adding our own?

Thanks. If anyone wants either file they can right click on the link(s) and "Save As"... Then open the file from your hard drive and change Zeus's data to their own dogs...

Wow, that's cool! Nice guide to go by. Jayda was the biggest in her litter and everyone told me she will be big, but she is right where she should be for a female. Hooray!!!

Our Vet says Zeus is going to be a big dog every time we see him too but he's actually on the lower side of the "standard" curve for males. Oh well, we'll just wait and see...

I'm not sure how much this thread gets read now but I've been updating both spread sheets regularly and putting them online. The links will download/show the latest versions. One of the things I've started to notice is how hard it is to get a good weight on Zeus. Basically I'm holding him and standing on a electronic bathroom scale. Then I deduct my weight from "our" weight etc. My problem is he's getting too darn big to do this and he hates to hold still long enough for us to get a good reading. So, to be sure the weights are fairly accurate I've included the weights we get at every vet visit too.

would be worth adding another column to record height. Seems there are a lot of weight charts but I can't seem to find a height chart. Wish I had started one with my last dog.

I thought about height but it was only a passing thought. Is height something people really keep track of? Zeus seems normal but compared to our last two GSD's he's totally different. In fact, our last male was probably an average height but he was over 5 feet long. So long he looked odd in my opinion. But, I guess I could add height...
