When fully grown?

At what age would you say you Vizsla was fully grown in height?

Two years old.

Most of the growth occurs during the first year, but they continue to grow, albeit slowly, up until their second birthday.

Re: When fully grown?

According to some Vets neutered/spied dogs and casts grow a little more than intact ones. True?
Vets also would love to work on them when they reach 6 months.

According to this forum, Vs grow up to 18 months and neutering them would under develop muscle mass and chest size.

Not sure, but strong leadership is a must with intact dogs. Some can smell a potential mate from miles away and stop at nothing to get to them :P

If you want the best seat in the house ... move the dog

Re: When fully grown?

Yes, i've been told that they reach full maturity at 18 months.


Datacan - Lexie is going to be a year this month and we haven't gotten her fixed yet. Our vet said that it would slightly stunt her growth and could promit chronic UTIs (apparently this breen has a large conformation...). Anyway, we're waiting for her to go through 1 season which terrifies me but at the same time, we want her to grow as much as she's going to before messing with her hormones, etc.
