Questions about weight and growth cycles

Discussion in 'Cane Corso' started by Like dog like owner, May 1, 2021.

  1. This is my first post here and I just wanted to say thank you for the forum and all the good information as well for all beautiful pictures of cane corsi.

    We have a 10 month old CC that weighs 95 lbs (43,5 kilos). We are curious about how big he will be when he is fully grown, we are perfectly aware that that is determined by a combination of genetics, nutrition and overall health.

    According to some weight charts we have found online, if he weighs 95 lbs at 10 months, he will probably land somewhere around 110 lbs (50 kilos). For us, that sounds low, his father weighs 143 lbs (65 kilos) and he was really slim- It would also mean that even his mother would weigh more (she was 114 lbs (52 kilos).

    Recently, he has becoming more muscular but not much higher. Is it likely that he will hit another growth spurt?

    Thanks in advance!

    My Cane Corso is 6.5 months and he’s 92lbs… I weigh him every week and he now is gaining 1-3 pounds per week.

    I remember when he was a couple months younger he was gaining 5-8pounds per week.

    I do not think you will see some big growth spurt now but corsos fill out until 18-24 months. I’ve even read somewhere they actually can fill out till 3 years old

    like I said my Cane Corso is only 6.5 months and is my first one. Just giving you my opinion from personal experience and what I’ve researched.

    He is done with growth spurts, but you might still get some extra height. My BM grew about an inch after 10 months. Actually he evened out. His was walking downhill at 10 months but his shoulders are now level with his rear. I'm guessing your Corso might get to about 120 lean weight, which to me is ideal. If I wanted a gigantic dog I would have gotten a Great Dane or English Mastiff.

    Hes a stunning boy, i have 3, they grow steady after around 12 months, my middle one was around 2 1/2 when he gained more height, so every dog is different, hes a lot bigger that his mum, dad and his elder brother. Keep him lean to help his joints, hes stunning now but i can see a very handsome big boy at the end of growth.

  6. I am telling you bro, do not get worried....My last dog did not quit growing and reach final weight until he was almost three.

  7. All that bullshit about what they will weigh when they are puppies is just that, bullshit!!!! No one, no computer, no vet, no breeder, can tell you how much your pup will be.

  8. Thank you for your input!

    Yes, one cannot stress enough the importance to keep them lean in order to protect their joints. They only live around 9 years (from what I read) and I want him to have so few health issues as possible to make the most of his time here on earth.
     
  9. Thank you!

    I think you are absolutely right! They seem to grow at different pace at different time and even a lot between 2 and 3 years.
