Schapendoes Growth

Did you just get the Schapendoes puppy? And do you want to know when your Schapendoes will stop growing and how big your Schapendoes will get? Or do you want to know if your Schapendoes is of the ideal weight for its age?

In this article, we will answer all these relevant questions related to Schapendoes growth and weight.

If you do not own the Schapendoes yet, make sure you purchase your Schapendoes from an reputable Schapendoes breeder. Also, check out our Schapendoes buying guide and Schapendoes price guide here.

You can also work with a reputable rescue to adopt a puppy.

It is important for you as a caring Schapendoes owner to know if your Schapendoes is growing normally and that your Schapendoes is not overweight or underweight.

Extensive research studies have shown that most dogs are overweight because their owners spoil them with food, treats, and easy life styles. Most dogs eat way too much and do not get enough exercise. Research has also shown that one of the reasons many dogs die young is because they are overweight. However, you can extend your dog`s life by making sure your dog is of healthy weight and growth.

One final reason to keep track of your Schapendoes`s weight and growth is that your Schapendoes`s weight and growth pattern can tell you if your Schapendoes has some underlying health conditions (such as bone, heart, hormone diseases). This is what recent research has shown.

This article contains the Schapendoes growth calculator that you can use to predict your Schapendoes`s adult weight. This article also contains the Schapendoes growth chart and weight calculator that you can use to approximately tell if your Schapendoes`s weight is in the normal range.

However, the more accurate method to predict and track normal growth in your Schapendoes is by regularly weighing your Schapendoes and recording the weight of your Schapendoes with our free dog weight tracker and weight predictor. Our tool will tell you, first, a more accurate future weight of your Schapendoes and, second, if your Schapendoes is growing normally.

We designed our dog weight tracker and weight predictor based on a recent research study carried out by researchers from Banfield Pet Hospitals and the University of Liverpool. This study collected and analyzed the weight of over 6 million healthy dogs in the United States. The dogs studied included dogs in the Schapendoes weight category.

When do Schapendoess Stop Growing and How Big Do They Get?

Your Schapendoes will grow very fast in its first 41 weeks. At 41 weeks, your Schapendoes will have reached 95 percent of its adult weight. Then your Schapendoes will slowly stop adding more weight. At around 53 weeks (~12 months), your Schapendoes should be at its maximum weight. Schapendoess stop growing at 53 weeks (~12 months).

The above discussion is general, and it applies to both male and female Schapendoess. However, male dogs usually grow at a different rate compared to female dogs

A male Schapendoes will grow very fast in its first 42 weeks. At 42 weeks, a male Schapendoes will have reached 95 percent of its adult weight at 42 weeks. A male Schapendoes will then slowly stop adding more weight. At around 55 weeks (~12 months), a male Schapendoes should have reached its maximum weight. Male Schapendoess stop growing at 55 weeks (~12 months).

Similarly, a female Schapendoes will grow very fast in its first 40 weeks. At 40 weeks, a female Schapendoes will have reached 95 percent of its adult weight at 40 weeks. A female Schapendoes will then slowly stop adding more weight. At around 52 weeks (~12 months), a female Schapendoes should have reached its maximum weight. Female Schapendoess stop growing at 52 weeks (~12 months).

See the growth graph of a Schapendoes below.

As you can see in the Schapendoes growth curve below, the Schapendoes grows really fast in its early weeks, and then its growth levels off till it reaches 100 percent of the adult weight.

Is Your Schapendoes Growing Normally? This is How to Tell

Puppy growth predictors, growth charts, and growth calculators like the ones above are approximate methods for predicting growth in dogs. However, these tools have limited capabilities. This is because each dog is unique and a dog`s growth may be different from that of the overall dog population.

A more accurate and scientific way to predict a dog`s growth is to measure the dog`s weight every week and record the weight. Doing this with your Schapendoes will give you a clearer picture of how your Schapendoes is growing.

You can use our free tool to track your Schapendoes`s growth and weight over time. Our tool will also let you know if your Schapendoes is growing normally.

Tracking your Schapendoes`s weight will let you see the unique growth trajectory of your Schapendoes. You can use this growth trajectory to accurately predict how big your Schapendoes will get. The growth trajectory will also let you know very early if your Schapendoes will become overweight or underweight.

Monitoring your dog`s weight is important because pet obesity is one of the leading causes of premature death in dogs. And these days, pets gain weight very easily because their owners spoil them with lots of treats and food. Catching early abnormal weight in your dog and correcting it (through diet changes, exercise) can significantly extend your dog`s life.

Below is what a normal growth pattern and what abnormal growth patterns look like in Schapendoess. You can compare your Schapendoes growth trajectory against these references to see if your Schapendoes is growing normally or you can use our automatic tool.

How to Measure the Weight of your Schapendoes

There are two methods you can use to measure your Schapendoes`s weight.

The first method, which is the better and more accurate method to weigh your Schapendoes, is to use a dog weighing scale.

Using a dog scale is important if you would like to monitor your Schapendoes`s growth regularly to catch any abnormal growth early.

Having a scale for weighing your Schapendoes will make it easy for you to weigh your Schapendoes regularly without any trouble.

The scale that we recommend for weighing the Schapendoes is this high durability and affordable W.C Redmon Precision Digital Pet Scale. Click here to check out this scale on Amazon.

Pet Scale for Accurately Weighing Your Schapendoes

The second method is to use a bathroom scale to weigh yourself while holding your Schapendoes. Then use the same scale to weigh yourself without your Schapendoes. Then calculate your weight when holding your dog minus your weight when not holding your Schapendoes. This method is illustrated in the picture below.

However, note that this method of holding your dog on a scale is not very accurate, and it may be difficult for you to use this method to weigh your Schapendoes if your Schapendoes is very heavy or if your Schapendoes is the type that would not stay still while being held.

Schapendoes Growth Stages

Your Schapendoes will go through a number of developmental stages on its journey to adulthood. Your Schapendoes`s growth pattern can be categorized into 6 distinct stages: Neonatal, Transitional, Socialization Period, Juvenile Period, Adolescent Period, and Maturity.

You can know the developmental stage of your Schapendoes based on how old your Schapendoes is.

1. Schapendoes Neonatal Period

Schapendoes Neonatal Period is from Birth to 2 weeks. During this stage, the Schapendoes puppy will be totally dependent on its mother. The Schapendoes puppy`s eyes will still be unopened with no sense of vision. The Schapendoes puppy will only have the senses of taste and touch

2. Schapendoes Transitional Period

Schapendoes Transitional Period is from 2 weeks to 3 weeks. During this stage, the Schapendoes puppy will continue to develop a better sense of hearing and taste. The puppy`s teeth will start coming through and its eyes will begin to open.

During this stage, the Schapendoes puppy begins to crawl forward and backward, begins to stand, begins to wag its tail. This is also the age where your puppy’s personality begins to develop.

3. Schapendoes Socialization Period

Schapendoes Socialization Period is from 3 weeks to 14 weeks. During this stage, the Schapendoes puppy will be able to fully use all of its senses (vision, smell, touch, hearing, taste), and the puppy will learn to survive without its mother.

Also during this stage, the Schapendoes puppy learns how to act like a dog (biting, chasing, barking, etc). The rapid learning and socialization of the puppy occur at this stage, and what the Schapendoes puppy learns in this stage will have a long-term effect on the puppy`s behavior as an adult.

4. Schapendoes Juvenile Period

Schapendoes Juvenile Period is from 3-4 Months to 5-14 months. During this stage, the Schapendoes puppies will attempt to clarify and resolve their boundaries. Their baby teeth start getting replaced by adult teeth.

5. Schapendoes Adolescent Period

Schapendoes Adolescent Period is from 5-14 Months to 2-3 Years. Schapendoess go through social and sexual maturity during this stage.

6. Schapendoes Maturity Period

Schapendoes Maturity Period is from 1 year to 4 years. At this age, your Schapendoes will transition to full adulthood.

How to Tell If Your Schapendoes is Overweight

As mentioned earlier in this article, a very accurate way to know if your Schapendoes puppy is on its way to becoming overweight is by weighing your dog every week and recording its weight. This will show you the growth trajectory of your Schapendoes puppy. And a close look at your puppy`s growth trajectory will tell you if your Schapendoes puppy will be overweight or underweight. This method is relatively easy to use.

You can use our free online tool to track your Schapendoes puppy`s growth curve.

However, if you do not have a record of the weekly weights of your Schapendoes, and you want to tell if your dog is overweight, underweight, or of normal weight, then you can use a chart called the body condition chart shown below. This method requires some expertise to use, and it is further discussed below.

Overweight, Underweight and Ideal Weight Body Condition Chart for Dogs

To tell your dog`s body condition, first, look at your dog closely and observe which of its bones and structures are sticking out or not sticking out from under its skin. Next, use your hands to feel for fat and bones over your dog. To know which bones to look and feel for, check out the body condition tool guide from the World Small Animal Veterinary Association and this guide. This exercise will tell you the body condition score for your dog.

Body condition scores are from a scale of 1 to 9. A score of 1, 2 or 3 means that a dog is too skinny. A score of 4 or 5 means that a dog is of ideal weight, and a score above 5 means that a dog is overweight.

Talk to your vet if your Schapendoes appears to be overweight. The vet might recommend reducing how much food to feed your Schapendoes.

Conclusion on Schapendoes Weight and Growth

In this article, we have provided you with the information, growth charts and growth calculators to help you tell how big your Schapendoes will get. These tools will also help tell if your Schapendoes is growing normally.

However, the best way to monitor and predict the growth of your Schapendoes is to measure and record your puppy Schapendoes`s weight every week.

Use our free Schapendoes weight tracker and calculator tool available here to track and predict your Schapendoes`s weight.

It is important that every Schapendoes owner monitors the growth of their Schapendoes for normal growth by checking the weight of their Schapendoes regularly. Regular weight monitoring will let you detect any abnormal growth very early before it is too late. We discussed how you can tell if your Schapendoes is growing normally from your Schapendoes`s weight history earlier in this article.

Abnormal growth in Schapendoes can be because of underlying disease (such are heart, hormonal, or bone problems) or because of overfeeding or underfeeding. All of the aforementioned reduce the Schapendoes lifespan and quality of life.
