What Age Do They Stop Growing Height Wise?

I know they fill out around 2 years old.

Around what age do they stop growing height wise?

Malice is 7 months old and is 22' at the shoulder.

Raven grew heigth wise until almost 2. Not much in the last year but a bit.

Kaiser hasn't grown in height at all in the last year.

Malice is just too small for me, I really want her to grow to 24', the height difference between her and Sinister is too much. He looks like a giant next to her, I dont want to hear "is she his puppy" for the rest of her life.

Why is she too small for you? She is within standard for a female. Kaiser is only 24" and Raven is 27". I've never measured Holly but she's probably around 22". I love the smaller size. They are quicker, more agile and easier for traveling.

She either will grow or she won't and neither one of you can change. Who cares what others say. Love your pretty girl regardless.

She looks like a little baby right now, the difference between them is so huge. Sin is 28' and Mal is 22', they almost look like 2 different breeds to me. I know 22' is within standard for a female but I want her to be at the top of the standard, she'll still be small, alot smaller than Sin but it wont be as big of a difference as it is now.

I'll love her regardless of what size she ends up at but they just look silly to me right now.

LOL I am hoping Beau does NOT grow too BIG. Shouldn't based on parents but I would sure rather one have too small than too big. Nothing I can worry about though. A lot more comfortable for a smaller dog in a 38 Inch dobgo box than a bigger one. -- wouild be hard to fit a bigger one in my truck. If there was a 40lb dog that was everything GSD I would be first in line.

Well Malice is still a baby..... she still has alot of grown to do. I heard from my breeder they top out height wise about 10-12 months.

Otto looks huge next to Circe. Otto is way above standard on height at 31 1/2 inches Circe is about 24 inches at the shoulder.

Dont they look funny next to each other?

Do you ever get comments about their size difference?

Kopper had a big growth spurt after 7 months. I don't think she's done yet.

Rocky's 25" and 75-80lb. We had a friend who had a GSD that was over 30 inches and 110lb. They were more or less the same color. When we would go places together people constantly ask if her dog was the male and mine was the female (they're both males) or if hers was the daddy and mine was the baby. Made me crazy.
