Growing stages - age&height&weight
2 Attachment(s)
Hi all,
when you get a puppy and you want to take the best cares of him/her, you will always ask yourself if I feed properly especially the first 8-10 months when the growing is fast. That is why I am trying to find sort of details what is the height/weight at certain months of CSWs. I know that it is specific for each dog, but in general there should be some common thresholds.
My male CSW is now 6 months old 60cm high and 28kg. I am feeding him mainly raw (sometimes boiled meet), giving calcium and vitamins. He eats around 1.5kg per day.
I want to be sure if I do it right and my dog develops correctly, so I would be grateful if you could share your experience about your puppies.
I will post later the exact height/weight at each month starting from month two of my dog.
The reason for asking this as you might guess is because I am feeding him raw. I read many articles that only meat is not enough, you could not balance calcium etc, so I am getting a bit worried if he develops correctly.
I am posting two photos of my dog at 6 months.
Thank you in advance!!!

here are the details for my dog:
Months Weight Height
2 6
2.5 9.3 38.5
3 11.5 41
3.5 15 45
4 19.2 50
4.5 21 52.5
5 24.5 55
5.5 27.2 58.5
6 27.2 60 (he was ill for 5 days during this period and lost a lot of weight)

if other people share similar info we could get sort of a chart for which lefteris asked in his thread here:

Similar info for females you could find here:

5months 24.5kg 55cm

For females similar details could be found here:

hi :)

personally i do not think comparing puppies will help,all dogs grow at different rates.
i always tell my clients never to go by weight(a rule i follow with my own dogs)you should always go by look,but most importantly feel ;) :)
