Henry

How much should my puppy weigh?

My Henry is 4 months old and weighs 3.5 kg. He was underweight when we got him but seems to be eating well now and walks most nights and is very active but Im not sure if he is getting too heavy for his age?

Nobody can really answer that. You should be feeding a puppy chow now. Switching to an adult chow for the larger breeds at 4 months, slows growth and helps develop sturdier joints.

Your dog definitely should be narrower at the waist than the hips and chest. You should be able to easily feel the ribs, but not see them. Each dog is different. Standard recommendations are a good place to start, but each dog must have its food and exercise adjusted to its individual needs. Here is a link to a good illustrated guide, www.longliveyourdog.com
