Puppy weight??

Postby Max4Holly » Mon Feb 24, 2014 5:52 pm

11 week old lab pup weighed in at 18.25lbs today at the vet, is that along the lines if average?

Have based adult weight on the weight at 16 weeks and then double it. It should give you a rough estimate of the pups adult weight.

Normal relative to what? Each pup is going to be a different weight at that age depending upon feeding/exercise habits and what size it's parents were. A dog that is going to reach 65lbs at maturity will be smaller at that age than a dog that is going to reach 90lbs at maturity.
