What Size Is My Puppy?

Why weighing your puppy is so important!

At Burns we go by the weight of the dog to determine feeding amounts. This is crucial to avoid overfeeding and the issues that come with it such as digestive upset, itchy skin, full anal glands and weight problems.


If your pup is a rescue, or the breeder has not given you an idea of what sort of size your dog will be when it is fully grown, contact our nutrition team and they should be able to help you.


If you have some bathroom scales at home you can weigh yourself, take a note of that, and then hop on while holding your puppy. Subtract your weight from the weight of you plus your puppy and that’s how much they weigh!

Alternatively you can pop into your local vets as most vets will have scales in their reception.


No, if you are not sure it is most likely to fall in the standard category. Or if you are still unsure get in touch with one of our nutritionists.
