What are your dog's measurements?

I would love to know the height and length of your male GSD, but also the measurement around your dog's neck and chest.

Looking to purchase some gear and would like to know what size I need to look at.
We are getting a male who will grow to about 85 pounds, according to his breeder.

Also, what are the measurements of a little landshark 10-week-old puppy?

What measurements do you need? An adult GSD's measurements or one for a pup? What kind of gear are you looking to purchase? What line is your GSD? American/German Showline/Working?

I don't know all the measurements your asking for. My 2 yr old male is 25" around 72 pounds.

When we brought him home at 8 weeks, he was 10 pounds.

Are you trying to buy gear for him as an adult?

Packs and things like that, go Medium. Large is usually meant for the really big boys. Even 100 lb GSDs fit into medium sized packs/vests. The large ones are way too big for our breed.

GSDs come in vastly different sizes and shapes, so I don't see how the measurements of other people's dogs are going to help you buy what you need for your own. Would make more sense to measure your dog for equipment you might need now (keeping in mind that most things are somewhat adjustible) and then wait until close to adulthood to get an accurate idea of what his own adult size will be before buying anything you'd need as an adult.

OK, thank you, that makes sense. I thought I could get an idea if I said he would end up being 85 lbs, as the breeder said he would grow to be, but given that there are so many lines, measurements would vary.

I'm learning

Going to curb my enthusiasm and wait until he gets here to purchase anything, except for a leash and collar. Thank you.

That was what I wanted to know, thanks. I am trying to educate myself and am looking to see what is out there and what the costs would be.
