How much should my 1 year old english springer bitch weigh

My trainer says shes over weight at 16.7 kg how much should she weigh?


From Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com
A long as you can feel ome of her ribs when you stroke her (not too much) then she is slim enough. Springers come in such different build and sizes I don't think its right to assign weights to them

I have six Springers and they vary in weight from 17kg for the eldest to just about 10 for the youngest.
I have one who is very tall and lean and I thought she was a tad underweight but the vet stated she was just about right. The older one was thought to be a little padded, but she is not at all fat!!

I would say it all depends on the size of your springer. I have a one year old who's weight is always being questioned. she was 16.7kg and she was told she needed a bit of padding on her ribs, then we changed her food she eats more than the recommended guidlines and is now 15kg, I was a bit shocked when she went on the scales! But if we feed her more her stools become really "sloppy". She is healthy and happy in herself.

I think it just depends on the shape of the dog, i think you should be able to feel ribs but not see them.

Your springer should weigh between 20 - 22.5 kg.
