Em - go back 2 sire & dam - then the rest of the pedigree - this is the best bench mark of where your pup should V - call your breeder - PIKE at 1yr was 60# - has stayed the same - just like his sire

My two stay pretty consistent at 63 lbs for Cash and 60 lbs for Penny. Keep in mind that mine are V mixes, so that could skew things a little - they are both pretty solid. Cash actually looks skinnier than Penny because he's longer than she is - she built like a tank! Sometimes at night when I have 120 lbs of dog fighting for my lap I wish they were pocket Vs. ;)

I wanted a pocket v and got a 65 lb boy instead! Sire under 60, dam about 50..But Wilson basically hovers around 65.

Your Dogs are beautiful!! What ever size they turn out, will be perfect. I just love the pic of Lua squeezing into her puppy bed. Some where I have the funniest pic of our 10 yr old weimaraner Greta curled up on Foxy's bed when she was a pup, the bed was completely under her, but she just had to try it out once!!
When she out grew the tiny bed, I used it for a toy box and kept all her toys there. She would drag the whole thing around the house with her and toss out the toys and play
I have the feeling Mr. Ferguson is going to hit mid 60's like Wilson, He is already in the 50's and still looks puppyish, hasn't even begun to fill out.

Our Sadie at 10 years of age is about 20 inches to top of shoulders, and weighs 46 lbs. Looking at her veterinary records, she was up to 55 lbs when she led a sedentary life with her previous elderly owner and apparently ate plenty of unhealthy snacks. Even with plenty of exercise, she gains weight easily so we have to watch portion size pretty carefully. She is in much better shape since we got her, and has traded fat for muscle as well as losing weight.

Ya know, I don't know exactly how tall our DiVinci was, but he was larger than average in overall size and weighed 72lbs.

Wife picked the largest male of the litter and he sure lived up to his birth size.

My female Vizsla - weight tracking from birth

My female Vizsla, NOLA, grew quickly, then leveled off around 45 lbs at 10-12 months old. Right where I wanted her to be. I feed her 4 cups of ProPlan Sport each day and she burns right through it while maintaining her weight and a healthy coat.

I have a GIANT Vizsla!!

Hi all,

First post for me on this forum :)

Somehow I have ended up with an oversized Vizsla puppy. My girl (Thuli) is now 10 months old and just brushed over the 80lb mark :eek and stands at 27in. She doesn't seem to have levelled off yet either, looking at the trend I think she has it in her to add another 10lb at least. I got her from a litter of 11 puppies, the parents were on the large side but not really outside of the breed specification with the dad at 64lb and mom at 58lb and they come from a very reputable breeder. All the other puppies are rather normal with the biggest male currently at 60lb. Yet somehow our lovely lady is pretending to be a Great Dane!

Has anyone ever seen something like this in a Vizsla? She is the sweetest dog and I am so happy with her but this is definitely not what I was expecting. Side note: 80lb of Vizsla at full zoomies can empty a dog park rather quickly :grin

Good morning guys based on all your posts I am a little worried, My Boy Hector is 23 weeks to the day and weighs 12.40 KG. what should he be weighing at this age? I feed him 3 times a day on dry kibble "Akela Small Paws" and feed him 105g x 3 per day as per packet instructions.

What are your thoughts?

Many thanks ~

Just had a look back at my boy Rafa's weight at different ages to compare.

12 weeks 9.4 kg (19 lbs)
16 weeks 12.5 kg (25 lbs)
20 weeks 16.9 kg (37 lbs)
24 weeks 21.0 kg (46 lbs)
28 weeks 22.5 kg (50 lbs)

Rafa is fed 3 times per day on dry kibbles for 'large breed puppies' http://www.petsathome.com/shop/en/pets/dry-dog-food/ava-veterinary-approved-large-breed-puppy-dog-food-chicken-15kg?orderBy=1# which is approximately 3 large bowls, one day this week he ate a lot more. I am feeding him slightly more than the recommended scoop and he is still showing slight ribs, but no hips.

I guess they are all different sizes, mine I think is going to be larger than the average Vizsla. The weight gain every 4 weeks seems to be a good indicator of food intake and growth, the chart earlier in this thread on the first page was very helpful to show the projected arc.

I was curious to see what weight my 'scoop' of kibble food for my boy puppy Rafa was and it is 200g, which he is getting 3 times per day, so 600g in total. When I had my food consultation with Pets at Home they were recommending about 175g three times a day for my dog based on average for his breed. He is a bit larger than average so I'm giving him slightly more.

My breeder told me that Vizslas are very good at self regulating their food i.e. they will not 'over eat' like some other breeds and that has been my experience with Rafa, sometimes he doesn't eat it all and leaves some and rarely he eats the lot so quickly I give him more.

Hope this info helps.

Olive is 15 months and she's 46 lb/ 21 kg and has been for the past 6 months. I started cutting back on her food because unlike most vizslas she's not super lean and loves to eat... I swear if I left her food out she'd eat until she was sick. Currently she eats 1c twice a day of Zignature. My last V topped out at 36lb and was really small but I've seen a male at 75 lb so there is some variability in size.

24 weeks 21.0 kg (46 lbs)
28 weeks 22.5 kg (50 lbs)
32 weeks 23.0 kg (51 lbs)

Rafa's weight gain seems to have tailed off markedly, is this normal at such a young age? He seems just as fit and healthy as ever and still eating the same quantity.

I'm looking at Bodhi's chart from the first page as a comparison, he didn't stop or level off until 12 months old.

Thanks

Rafa's weight gain has started going up again, it appears he was just growing in height instead! He is currently eating anywhere between 4-5 cups (200g) of kibbles per day, supplemented by occasional eggs and other treats.

At not even a year old, Rafa is going to be a big boy. Guessing mid 60s to 70s after he fills out.

Shine turned 1 back in February, and she weights 43 lbs. All though females, weight less than males. That's a big weight difference.

Thanks for that news :wink, even as a very new puppy he had massive front paws that everyone who saw him commented on.

I just measured his height to his shoulder blades at 25", he has no hips showing but all his ribs are there to see so still thin I guess.

Rafa has a real gentle but mischievous character, his brother Cairo when we went to see the breeder and the litter was over twice Rafa's size as a new puppy!! Dread to think how big he might be now.

Love this Vizsla of mine to bits, so pleased we went with this breed as our very first dog. :grin

Hi there,
i'm writing from italy...
8 it's our first V it's an amazing good boy.
we are just a little bit worried because it is growing little.

his parents are pure Hungarians and have all the features, they are not great. the father is 60 cm tall.

8 has completed 8 months yesterday and weighs 21kg and is 55cm tall.

do you believe it will grow again?

up to which month a V could grow in height?

thanks to all
