Default Dont seem to growing anymore

I dont know if this is just me, but has anybody else felt like their dog isnt growing anymore? it seems to me that ares is around the same size when she was 4 months and what she is now (5 months). So when do these dogs usually stop growing

Yeah, Kaiju has been the same 60 pounds since 7 months. He's a year old now. I was expecting some more growth, but it seems to have settled in. There might be a bit more in the next year. Most of my large dogs have finally stopped growing at abut two.

Dude is still steadily growing at almost 8 months. Last month he weighed about 52 lbs. I haven't weighed him this month but I bet he is probably at least 55llbs.

I think in height maybe a year but for mass about 2 years. But every dogs are different. I think 4 months is way too early for a puppy to stop growing .

You see him every day and probably don't notice the changes. But yeah, a scale would help

Most dogs grow at a somewhat predictable rate....however many make up the exceptions.

Is your pup done teething and have all her adult teeth....might be going through that stage now....might require the pup's "growth" to be focused on other non-obvious development.....lots of things growing/developing in a pup that age...especially bones and growth plates.
