How big will my puppy be? If you’ve adopted your dog at a young age, then it’s guaranteed that you’ve asked a vet, breeder, or both this question. While it’s good to know for curiosity’s sake, it’s also extremely helpful for planning ahead. You’ll need to know how big of a dog crate to get, the size of their collar, as well as if you have the room for the eventual size your full-grown pup will grow into. Of course, if you have a purebred dog, you’ll be able to easily obtain an estimate on the average size of that fully-grown breed. However, there are plenty of cases where the dog doesn’t grow anywhere near that size for one reason or another, or they grow well beyond the average.

We’re going to look at factors that influence your puppy’s growth, so you can know how big your puppy should get if they grow to their full potential. We’ve also supplied you with some crafty calculations, so you can obtain measurements that are personalized to your particular pup!
