    His weight sounds about right. Hard to tell because puppies all grow so differently. You should check out the puppy weight page here.

    This thread should give you an idea Doberman puppy owners - track your weight gain here

    Puppies grow in such weird spurts, they can look fat one day and skinny the next. Your pup sounds about right right. He may hit a stage where he looks lanky and skinny for what seems like forever. It can take a loooong time for those boys to mature.

    Welcome from Louisiana!!!

    Good looking Doberman you have there. Have fun with them now. They grow very big, very fast. You won’t recognize him at 8 months.

    As far as his weight goes, I believe the golden rule from the experts is there is no set amount to feed. It all depends on how your pup is holding his weight. Generally, at puppy age, I fed 3 to 3-1/2 cups of kibble a day give or take extra food/treats given during training.

    I always made/make sure I can see a glimmer shape of his last rib to tell if I was feeding too much. If it got to the point that I could not see this glimmer of his last rib, I just cut his food back by 1/2 cup or increased his training to work it off.

    I never really had an issue of him holding too much weight, Ragnar is an ever moving machine that never stops. He is always on the go and always looking for something to eat.
