Question How fast is too fast in weight gain?

My boy rider went from barely 22 pounds 10 days ago (10 wks) to 26.5 pounds today at his vet check. The vet didn't say anything negative about his weight gain, but I wanted to ask, how fast is too fast for a puppy to gain weight?

my boys have gained an average of 3 lbs a week. It will vary a bit by individuals. You want consistent gains. Nothing really drastic, just steady

I feel so much better about his gains! I was concerned he was eating too much, and maybe growing too fast..if that makes sense?
