    Hey everyone,
    I have a 8 month old pup (54.4 lbs) wondering what he will top out at weight wise? Also, I’ve heard he will grow until around the year and a half point is that accurate? We use a spring pole, flirt pole, and long walks for exercise. Any other good exercise options would be great.

    Welcome. If he has the same growth rate as mine averaged out at, he’ll top out approx 10lbs bigger than what he is now, give or take. He’ll stop when he stops.
    Exercise at this stage should always be a game for the pup, which’ll help your bond grow. There are so many exercises and variations. I personally only like a springpole when a dogs feet are on the ground. Add an a-frame when flirting him, swimming, retrieving a thrown ball, jogging, treadmill, biking, chain-tyre pulls.

    Your choice. Some use an ordinary harness, some a specialised weight pull harness and some just of a 2 inch wide collar. I don’t let mine pull tyres or chains because of my location, so when I want em to pull against something. I take em for a walk and roll a ball ahead a let em pull me along. If that makes sense.
