How much weight should short legged JRT puppies gain each week. I have 2 puppies one male, one female. They are 9 weeks 4 days old and weigh 2,4 (male) and 2.1 (female) kgs respectively. They eat well and have loads of energy.


They have gained 300grams wach in the last week, is this correct or should they gaining more?

Puppy weight gain

It sounds like you are on track. It's hard to give a weekly rate of growth since it can be so variable within Jacks and it can be dependent on some many different things. And up to 11 weeks is the most rapid period of growth. As long as your pups are consistently gaining weight without looking too chunky or too skinny and are happy and playful then everything should be fine!
