actually, GSDs don't even begin filling out until 18 months. They finish at 3-4 years old.

If you look at original GSDs from the past, you'll see that they weren't huge like many of the dogs you see today. I love her look, she looks very agile like the KNPV dogs. By the way, I love the "do not pet" vest.

I feed her one cup two times a day and about 1/2 cup for lunch. Oh wow those are much smaller. Her parents were both about 80lbs and her sister is already 5-10lbs bigger than her already

53 lbs at 6 months old is bigger than some adult females. Remember, the standard calls for a female GSD to weigh between 48 1/2 to 70 1/2 lbs.

Many of the dogs that you see that have those high numbers are actually just overweight. The rest are simply oversized, which can happen in any litter.

Each pup grows at their own rate. You really can't compare one to another. All that matters is that they are gaining weight on a steady basis.

She weighed the exact same two weeks ago. Her ribs and stomach were really starting to fill out and then for the past week she had the runs and now she looks super thin again. I would have guessed we got to about 35 but now back down to 32.6.

Is it ok to feed bland (chicken rice pumpkin) for 10 days? Seems long

May I ask where you got the "in training, do not pet" harness? Looks great and is exactly what I've been searching for.

I guess I don't see the need to do the bland diet for ten days to switch foods. My vet told me when I was feeding Rosko blue Buffalo as a pup that since he already has diarrhea to just switch him to Fromm. After a 24 hour fast. He will adjust and settle down. We did add a probiotic with it. And we cut out all but freeze dried liver for treats. After a couple days he was fine.
