Just look at him. He should have the hourglass figure of a swimsuit model. When you look down at him, you should see a waist, not a block of dog. Put your hands on him. You should be able to feel the ribs easily beneath a layer of muscle and fat. No ribs? He’s too fat.

    My little Gandolf was weighing in at 205, but with lots of swimming he is now 192. He is such a great dog, I had never thought about having one until I fostered then adopted him.

    weight will depend on skeletal structure, muscle (which is hormonal and genetic factors) and fat %

    your dog should have easily felt ribs, good muscle coverage and no protruding spine/hips. Weight can be deceptive, go by touch before pounds

  3. Peter Griffin says

    100-160 depending on the type. not sure about Gorban variant, but probably 130lbs. 25-29inches at the withers as well.

    (Good job, most people dont know what a Caucasian Ovcharka is!)
