If anyone else's dobergirl gained weight after the heat cycle. I just changed her food to a lower calorie one because it's like all of a sudden she is starting to pack it on! I think she is starting to mature more and getting more curves but I just weighed her and was a little surprised.:eek2: Is this normal? She was 8 months on the 6th of March.

No need to go low-cal.
Puppies need a lot of food when they are growing, more than an adult. Something to remember is as they grow- they will require less food to keep them at that perfect weight and you might have to adjust it accordingly by how they look month to month. Activity also plays a MAJOR part. Spring and summer usually bring more activity. Sometimes dogs require more food in the winter to keep warm as well. Just varies
