German Shepherd Growth Chart

 

Since dog growth can be affected by genetics and environment, the chart data in the German Shepherd growth chart are approximated.

German Shepherd Growth ChartA German Shepherd dam will normally whelp (give birth to) between six and eight puppies. While there are exceptions, at this litter size, the puppies will normally be about 1% of the mother's pre-pregnancy weight.


Puppy Growth Chart

A healthy large breed puppy will normally double her birth weight during the first week. This is followed by a consistent weight gain of 5-10%. And moderates to an ultimate weight of around 70 times the puppy's birth weight. Check the puppy growth chart for an explanation of the different puppy development stages and puppy growth rate.

German Shepherds normally reach physical maturity at 18-24 months. Curiously, some Eastern European lines mature more slowly and do not reach full maturity until 36 months of age. Their growth rate slows noticeably at 6 months and continues minimally after 12.

Again, these are approximations and your own puppy growth chart may not absolutely reflect these numbers. If you have any doubt that your puppy is not changing according to the above German Shepherd growth chart, the best thing to do would be to contact your trusted vet.

If you are providing adequate exercise and quality dog food, your German Shepherd's dog growth should be normal and she will have no trouble reaching her full potential.

Not sure if you're feeding your GSD enough? Check out the breed specific dog food calculator to make sure.

Is your GSD growing by the numbers?

Not all German Shepherds will follow the FCI growth chart exactly. How is your pup progressing?
