Height Growth Chart
6 Attachment(s)
In more than one thread we had complained for the lack of a Height chart. We have a very good weight one, but actually the standard doesn't talk of weight, but height.

So... with so many pups on this board we can make a more than decent database to make an average scale in the future.

So lets start. Put:

- Name of the pup
- Age (months and weeks)
- Height (inches or centimeters, if both, better) I'll make the chart for both systems.
- Gender (male or female)

Update every time the pup celebrates a new month of life.

I know Diabla is below average, so she doesn't serve as much for averages, but I'll use her as example.


- Diabla
- 4 months, 2 weeks
- 18,5 inches

- Diabla
- 5 months, 2 weeks
- 55 cm, 20,1 inches
Unfortunately, I didn't keep records before, but I'll start from now.

And of course if you have previous records from current puppies or now adult dogs... Post them!!

More ideas are welcomed too.

Re: Height chart
Thanks for starting this thread. I will start recording on Saturday when my little guy will be 3 months.

So we are all on the same page with this here is a diagram of how to measure the height of your GSD.

Top of Yellow line is where to take the height measurement. The white line is to measure length.

Thanks,I forgot something... can you add the gender of your pup?

That's important...

Re: Height chart
If you forgot the gender of you pup, JUST PM ME with this link and I'll add it to your previous post. I can get in and edit all the old stuff.

That way we don't have to add on new posts to make this longer, and more confusing. I'll just put the sex in the post with the rest of your info.
