How Tall

I was just wondering how tall an average 4month Vizsla should be. We keep being told that we have a bog dog and some people don't believe me when i say he is only 4 month (4 month birthday today)

I have just measured him and he is 20.5niches or 52cm at his whiters. This seems big for a 4 moth puppy when the average full grown male vizsla is 23-25inches.

Just wondering if this is normal, do they all grow this fast? We did meet another Viz that was only 8 days younger than Digby, but was about 3 inches shorter and much skinner (Digby is by no means fat, but is getting bulky!) and the owner thought that hers was quite big!

We're feeding him puppy food for large athletic breeds as recommended. I love him what ever - just interested, I have no problems if he's big it would be kinda funny in a way - as I'm 6'6"

Re: How Tall

Kian is 23" at 11 months. He weighs just under 50lbs.

He shot up like a weed at 4 months of age and then another at about 7 months.
Personally I hope he stays at this size as he is within the breed standard.

We have met a Vizsla that was 75 lbs....way too big for this breed. He was the size of Doberman or Weimaraner.

Vinnie is 9 months and kind of stopped growing in height now, he is now starting to fill out. He is about 22.5" and 22Kg.

Re: How Tall

Dexter just turned 1 last week. He's 24 1/2 inches and weighs 62 lbs. Scarlet is almost 4 months. She is 18 1/2 inches and weighs 29 lbs.

I think you're guy is probably a little tall at that age but you can't really tell. Sizes vary tremendously as you can see in some other threads on this forum.

Having two Vizslas means having two heartbeats in your lap!

Re: How Tall

Hi BenAS, breed standards are fine if you want to show but if you've got him as a pet then I wouldn't worry if people say he doesn't 'fit the norm' if he's healthy, happy and loved does it really matter what size he is. Scooby's 14 mths and he's about 25'' (hard to measure cause every time I go near him he thinks it's play time) when last weighed he was 27Kg ( approx 60lbs) and he was always tall as a puppy. Alot obviously depends on the parents size but on a personal note I love his size and build and that's all that matters to me.
Enjoy your BIG boy !!!

Re: How Tall

Miss Ziva is 7 1/2 months old, 43 pounds and approx. 21 inches at the shoulders (moving V's are very hard to measure!) She is solid as a rock and I would give anything at age 55 to have a nicely defined back side like her!!!! HA!

And as a previous poster noted... if you are not going to show in conformation and your pup is happy, healthy and bonded to you then it really doesn't matter what size it is. Just love your V and be ready to receive oodles of love in return.

Re: How Tall

Thanks everyone, we're not going to show him, so it does not really matter how big he is, I was just interested really.

We just weighed him and he came in at 17kg (37lbs). People keep telling us "he big" but i was not sure how much bigger, sounds like a bit but not massively so.

Re: How Tall

In addtion to all the info already on this post I was wondering how long does it take for a vizsla to become full grown height wise? The reason I ask is that I have a 1 year old male and he measures about 20 inches and weighs about 45lb.. That is on the small side and am hopeing he will still grow some in height. Any help on how long it takes a Vizsla to become fully grown?
Sorry to intrude on this post but I just thought it would be better to respond and ask a question on this post rather than posting the same topic again in a new post.

Re: How Tall

I had the same question a while back and asked the breeder.
She told me that height wise could be up to 18 months and they usually stop growing at 24 months.
