Dolly

I chew therefore- I am

Dolly is 8 months old and 40 lbs. She's pretty much lost her long legged gawky teenage look. I expect she'll fill out a bit between 8 mos and 2 years, but thought I'd ask experienced Aussie owners what they think.

Yea Dolly should start filling out soon. It will take a little bit of time but she will. Baron was about full grown at a year old. I did have to work a little hard to put some extra weight on him tho. Hes a bit taller than the average Aussie so it took a little bit of extra work there. But anyway back to Dolly. Well all the dogs are different but I would say she should be right at her ideal body size anywhere from now to a year and a half. Hope that gives you an idea although I know its kinda vague.

I'd guess she'll gain about 5 lbs, but that's only an educated guess. Thanks for your feedback. She seems so huge all of a sudden!!!

I'm a year and a half and about 36#, ~19" at the shoulder. My mom expects I'll gain a few more pounds, but figures I'm pro'lly done growin'. Most of the Aussies at our park are about the same size - a couple are bigger.

Mia is 36 right now & 8 months old. Not sure about Dot, she's only 9 weeks and probably about 9lbs, but she's a mini.

Wow well, based on Sugar Magnolia and Mia's reports, I guess I've got an Aussie heading towards being larger. Funny because Dolly's mom was small, and I half expected Doll to be on the small side too.

Now when she jumps up, paws on the couch, she seems to stretch out forever!!! I once read, take the puppy's weight at 4 mos and just about double that should be close to adult weight. Must admit, I hope she doesn't hit over 50 lbs.

That said, of course if she exceeded that ideal limit I would love her dearly for who she is. I'm just surprised.

I only have a guess here... at 8 months, I weigh 36#. mommy hasn't measured my height, yet. My breeder-mom told my mommy that I'd get to be about 55# at full size. But when I was a few months old, my veterinarian said I might grow to be closer to 45#.
I guess only time is going to tell.

Grady

Disc Dogs rock!

When you talk size there are alot of factors involved. Auzzie's are generally around the 18 to 25 in in the hithers and I do stress the "generally". Weight is controlled mostly by you the handler. What I mean is, my dog Grady will eat as much food as we put in front of him so we have to limit his intake based on what we are doing with him. Grady is into Disc Dogging his competition wight is around 40-44 lbs, but his off season weight is 45-50 lbs. We live in Minnesota so it hard to get him our runnning when it's -15 outside. When spring get here and were outside training the winter weight comes off him fairly quick ( I wish I could say the same about me). We found that his basic size has not changed much after he reached one year of age.
