How Much Should My Cocker Spaniel Puppy Weigh?

How much should a cocker spaniel weigh at 16 weeks old?

Reply from Pauline (Web Owner)

Jacko's right - the recommended weight for a 16 week old puppy will also depend on its size.

As a guide, your puppy should weigh somewhere between 6.75-8 kgs (14.9-17.6 lbs) at 16 weeks.

If your puppy is on the smaller side, he should weigh in at around 7 kgs but, if he's a lot bigger, he should be around 8 kgs at that age.

Also, as your puppy gets older, you'll find that there are several other factors to bear in mind when determining the ideal adult Cocker Spaniel weight, such as the breed (English or American), the dog's sex, size, age, and its state of health.

Puppy Weight
by: Jacko

All puppies can weigh different at different ages - it depends upon the size of them. My puppy was much larger than normal so he weighed heavier than most puppies.

My vet told me what he should have weighed for his age but advised me to feed him a little more because the 'average' weight for a puppy of his age would have made him underweight because he was such a big puppy.

I guess the opposite applies if you've a small puppy.
