Bella is 15 months old  We've just moved from Devon to Norfolk, and were so proud when her new vet said "She's perfect! And so beautiful! Bella's going to be spayed on Tuesday (she has a little hernia) and we're concerned about the collar she'll have to wear. We've bought a comfy collar, but

Springer Spaniel Weight
« on: February 02, 2011, 09:13:19 PM »
Hi, I'm new to the forum, but I was wondering how people's springers vary in size and weight. My springer, Zach, is 9 months old and weighs 16kg and is 18 inches in height up to shoulder. He was the runt of the litter. My ex's female springer, Bailey, who was 6 years old was 15kg and was approx 16 to 17 inches tall, also the runt of the litter. Both are working springers.

I was wondering,

a) should I expect Zach to grow in size or has his growth seized now?

b) how large are other people's spaniels?

First of all, welcome  to you and your Springer.

Springers get to be full grown around 15 months and for a working line male about 20-22Kg. But lots of inidvidual variations.
My bitch Jodie weighs in at around 19 Kg and around 20 inches tall so for a working line she is a big girl.
My stud dog (who is not small) is about 2Kg more than Jodie but a fraction less in the legs.  When Jodie went to a different stud (again a big dog) she was longer in the leg and the stud needed a lift. ( just a bit of extra height, I think it was a pallet).

Cheers

it entirely depends on the natural size of the dog - some are big some small, or athlectic or more barrel. 9 months though i think is average at 16kg .. typically they are between 16 - 21kg but some are petite as 13kg and as big as 24 and neither be under or over weight ;) glad hes keeping you on the go  ;D ;D

My big lad is 16 inches to the shoulder and weighs about 14kg. He's working type and stocky.



The pups are leaner but taller and weighed about 19kg at Christmas.

I would think at 9 months he has some growing still to do anyway.  There also seems to be a huge variance in weight amongst springers.

My Harvey is 24kg and he's just turned 2! He is tall but slim! Jessie is 18kg and 16 months of age. Harvey is slim and tall & Jessie is small and more dumpy looking!

My 11 year old bitch weighs 15.4kg and is 17inches at the withers. I also thought she was very small for a springer but by the looks of this thread she's not *that* small :)

Zach is upto 16.7kg at 13 months. He plays with 3 other female spaniels on the field and standing beside them he is slightly smaller, but in terms of frame, is considerably smaller.

How much loose skin do other people's springers have on the back of the neck. Zach is quite a solid build, but he still has the puppy fat on the back of the neck. I fear I demasculated him too soon, as although solid, he isn't muscular, although we run around 4 mile a day and he plays fetch for about an hour a day. He also never humps and I've never seen hsi lipstick. Is this normal? As my ex's lhasa apso used to hump constantly and he was demasculated

Hi :wave:
I shouldn't worry too terribly much about those aspects of things hon...Hendrix was around almost 3 when he came to us & 1 month later we had him neutered...he was pretty much fully grown, full of hormones and he's not a big fellow...'round 19.5 Kg right now, with a large scruff on the neck even now at 5! He's never been much of a humper, but did occasionally do it prior to being neutered. It was a dominance issue with him, plain & simple.

The show variety of springers tend to be heavier/sturdier framed dogs, but the 'field' bred tend to be much smaller & lighter framed. (I'm not entirely sure what this is called in UK, but here it's "bench-bred" & "Field-bred"). Sgurr/other mods would most likely be able to answer it more clearly, but to me your handsome fellow appears to me to be of the "field" variety and is not going to be as big as a "bench".

As to the "humping" behavior of your ex's little dog, in my experience they can tend to be like that no matter when they're neutered & both male and females do it. Sometimes it's a dominance issue, sometimes it's just...well...um...???! I've seen it in my small breed fosters quite often...one of them (Teddy) was neutered at just 4 months & promptly continued humping everything in sight as soon as he was healed from the surgery. And still does it today, according to his new forever mum! Be glad your fellow is not doing it & count your blessings, lol.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.  Be pleased that you have a dog that does not hump!
He will carry on filling out until about 18 months, but if you are doing 4 miles a day (and he is doing more!) then he will be a lean lad not a couch potato.

Cheers

I have 2 working springers Holly is 19" and weighs 17kg and Willow is 15" and weighs only 12 kg so I think it can vary quite alot.
