Re: Pup Growth Log/Chart

I have been keeping track using the chart. I know all dogs are different but it is interesting to see where Shayla fits. Last month - 4 months - she was spot on at 36.8 lbs. Now at 5 months she is just passed - 47.7 lbs.

Re: Pup Growth Log/Chart

I wonder how many people have downloaded this spreadsheet? Would it be worth the time to write a small program to do the same thing? Something easier to use and not require a program like Excel to use it? A couple of lines where you can enter your dogs name, birth date, weights and the date etc.

Re: Pup Growth Log/Chart

I have the spreadsheet and will use it with my next pup. I like Excel.

Re: Pup Growth Log/Chart

Just wanted to say thank you we've downloaded this and have started using it on Clouseau. Since he's our first shepherd this is a really useful guide. He's a little under the average at the moment, but as long he he stays on a similar curve we know he'll be fine.

Re: Pup Growth Log/Chart

How are you all counting months? 4 weeks=1 month or an actual month (as in May 11 to June 11=1 month)? Flash is 12 weeks and now 20.4 pounds which puts him considerably below the curve. That's fine by me, I like slow and steady, but I know if I waited until the 11th (3 months old by actual months) he would be closer to the standard.

Re: Pup Growth Log/Chart

jesusica, too funny... when I was tracking my puppies growth I was confused about the same 'what is a month?'.

I used whatever way made my puppy more normal .

Re: Pup Growth Log/Chart

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking I'll do too. In ten days he gained exactly 3 pounds so I know in eight more days he will have gained quite a bit more weight but will still be pretty far below the growth chart (chart says 31.3 and like I said he's only 20.4). He's growing like a weed, though, and I can't imagine him being 10 pounds heavier than he is at this age!

Re: Pup Growth Log/Chart

Jesusica, the spreadsheet is using the default Microsoft formula to calculate the year, month and days. A month is a "calendar" month. For example, Zeus was born on 9/6/2006. He was one month old on 10/6/2006 etc. The formula does not actually count the days and weeks that pass.

You know, don't worry about that. My pup has always been a little on the small side... was always about 10 lbs. under what the chart said. And slowly she's caught up. At 11 months she weighs 59 lbs, which is 4 lbs. under what the chart says. I expect her to be about 65 lbs by the time she's full grown, which is about what her breeder and I had discussed.

The important thing is that he is growing and developing steadily, and that he isn't heavier than he's supposed to, for orthopedic reasons. Trying to 'match' the chart is not worth stressing over
