BoTaBe My 1yo is 59lbs, I'd also say 65lbs is perfectly fine.

Sp00ks And just for comparison. We free fed our last female and she was 65lbs her entire life.

marksteven My male is only 67lbs. Granted he's not a huge dog. I have had 90lb.+
GSD's and i have the mindset now that lean and thin is better. I learned the hard way with a dog that developed hip/back issues. The weight didnt help. If your doesnt look sickly you may just have a lean built dog.weight isnt everything.

Cassidy's Mom Whenever I'm switching between foods I do a kcal per cup comparison like GrammaD shows above, and adjust the quantity accordingly.

Harry and Lola Best to grow her slowly and she is only 1, so she is yet to fill out, which they usually do by 3yo, but I would only allow her to gain an extra 2 to 4 pounds by 3yo. 65 to 70 pounds is an excellent weight for a fully grown GSD bitch.

Yes, great weight but I'm so used to the size of my other two that I have to constantly remind myself she's not as big as them and to not over feed her with food and treats!

GrammaD Kcals per cup for Fromm LBP = 389

Kcals per cup for Fromm LBA = 378

Not much difference there.

She is maintaining on her current amount (not gaining, not losing) so I think you are safe to keep feeding the same amount. Just keep watching body condition and adjust accordingly.

David Winners Try it out and see what her weight does. Just watch her body composition and adjust.
