How old when fully grown?

My Bruce is about 5 and a half months old now. I was just wondering around when dobermans are usually fully grown? And about how big is your dog if fully grown?

A male doberman will not be full grown in terms of weight and height until he is at least 3 years old.

Usually they will reach their final height by the time they are 12-18 months old, and will continue to fill out until they are 3. It all depends on the growth of the lines that your dog is from.

There are a lot of different answers to your question.

Fully grown physically= can be up to 2-2.5 years.
Grown to perform vigorous activity (running)= 1.5 years
Fully grown height= The doberman standard for dogs is 26-28" and bitches are 24-26"

A lot of this depends on the genetics of your dog; the size of the sire and dam. Some lines mature very early and some closer to 2 years. If your dog is 5 mo old, he will grow rapidly in the coming months. This is prime time growing age. Good luck and have fun with your dog.

ETA: mom you write too quickly

Our oldest girl Ellie is 20 months old now and although she stopped growing upwards about 5 months ago shes still filling out. At the moment shes 27 inches tall and weighs about 33-34kg (about 75 pounds) but she is quite big for a girl dobie.

My Petey had his full height and it turns out weight by 9 months old. Although the weight was most likely more fat at 9 months old then it is now at almost 3.

Keira was at her full height by 8 months old, and has been filling out slowly since. As Lexx'smom said, it generally takes until they're about 3 years old before they're completely finished growing.

Everyone has been correct with explaining the growth information my girl is 13 months old, and last we weighed about 60 pounds. She is 26 inches at the shoulder and still very leggy. she has a lot of fill out and I suspect when she is full grown she will hit in the 70's. Height wise I think she stopped but weight wise I think she has more to go. PS- yes.. that is her tongue sticking out of her mouth. i have probably 8 pictures like this haha

Red is 2 1/2 years old now, and gained 10 lbs in the past 2-3 months! He held steady at 80 lbs for a looong time, but then suddenly he started looking more filled out in the past couple months and he's now 90 lbs. I've heard they usually don't reach their full adult weight until around 3 years old.

my girl is somewhere around 65 at 8 months 3 weeks. she was sick with coccidia for nearly 3 months (she was 4-7 months old during) and lost about 3-4 pounds during that time.

she grew pretty fast for a while now she's gaining slowly and filling out. she grew long and tall pretty quickly.

these pics were from oct 25 2009.

just curious why you say 1.5 years for running? i bike with my almost 9 month old most every day. she runs along side me and can get frustrated if i don't go fast enough for her to actually break a trot. she's pretty developed and was mostly muscle before we even started riding.

i can't walk or jog with her far/long enough to exercise her to her liking so i had to start using the bike

Forced running is not good for them until their bones are fully mature. Of course they can and are willing to do it but that doesnt mean it is ok.

i don't know how dogs ever made it the past 15,000 years made it without running daily at younger ages than 18 months. :confused2

anyways, not stressing the bones somewhat will cause the bones to be thinner and more fragile in adult life. dobermans in general aren't known for being weak-boned.

just hard to think of trying to get the exercise she needs without some running. i can't walk/jog enough to get what she needs. not sure how other owners of high energy dogs can do it without running.

just not a big believer of this '18 month - no running' thing.

There is a difference between "free" running, where the dog makes the choice whether he wants to take a break or slow down, and "forced" running, where the dog has to continue at your pace whether or not it is comfortable for him. Yes, he will run alongside your bicycle--he wants to be with you and to go along at the pace the "pack" demands--but I imagine, if you think about it, you will realize that he would normally stop, sniff a tree from time to time, or explore an interesting scent. Biking too, is often performed on a hard surface, another stress on bones and joints. Look at the experience of people who run and train for racing--they are careful to make sure they pace their training appropriately (and to wear proper footwear) so they don't damage their knees and ankles.

It's more than just bones that are being stressed--the cartilage of the joints and the ligaments and tendons are being put under stress when the dog runs, at someone else's demand and constant pace, on a hard surface, for a long period of time. You can believe it or not, but do some research--I imagine you will find most, if not all, knowledgeable people, and those who are involved in various performance sports with dogs, agree with the limiting of a dog's jumping and forced exercise when he is young.

I'm not an expert, but I believe I read somewhere it contributes to Hip Dysplasia. Some believe that what happens in the developing months contributes more to the condition than hereditary conditions that may exist.

What you are describing is a bit different than what I had pictured--but do please be careful to make sure she is able to exercise at her own free will. I do wonder how you keep her out of trouble if a strange dog approaches--sounds like she's off-leash???

she's very responsive to my commands and snaps to my side even if a cat runs by. she wears an electronic collar that i beep the 'bad' tone if she gets too far away.

The concern is continuous running as previously mentioned. As with humans, the long bones are not fully mature/capped until teenage years (epiphysis). Put it in perspective, would it be safe for a 7 year old to run a few miles everyday? As long as your dog free runs then I don't think there are any major concerns.

That is really small... My Doberman is 9months old and is 23.8 kg. I take him daily to the dog park and he runs constantly with other dogs for 3 hours. I have also a daily 15 minutes session with him on all the commands I taught him which is also a great way to get his energy out. Is there a difference between the "German Doberman" (My rocky is German) and the "American Doberman" regarding the size?

My pupp turned 9 months yesterday, I can't notice any more growing for the last month, but his face is changing slightly, less of a puppy face, but he still needs to put on weight and fill out a bit. He is on the lean side, you don't see his ribs as such but when he stretches a bit they are very clear....but his weight is around 26Kg and the vet says it's ok. We had a bath month when he lost nearly 3 Kgs (due to trying to change his food) and took over a month to get back on track.
Your boy sounds a bit underweight but maybe due to Parvo?
If you could post a pic of him standing up would be easier to see.

I'll have to make a picture of him when I get home from work. It might be the parvo. He also has had a skin condition recently, but he is really growing fast the last few weeks, with about 0.8 kg's per week.
