How Much Should a 13 Week Old Golden Retriever Puppy Weigh?

Save

Ideal for Males

  • Male golden retriever puppies weigh between 12 and 22 pounds at the 12-week mark, with ideal weights closer to 15 or 16 pounds. Between 12 and 16 weeks, golden puppies gain about 10 pounds, which means they gain about 2 1/2 pounds each week. At week 13, your male golden retriever puppy should ideally weigh in at about 17 1/2 pounds.

Females Weigh Less

  • Female golden retriever puppies weigh slightly less by fewer than a 1/2 pound; adjust your calculations accordingly. Overall, puppy weights vary. To check whether your puppy weighs enough, feel for her spine or ribs; your puppy's bones shouldn't be easily felt, but instead covered with a small fat layer.

Bottom Line

  • Your golden retriever puppy, whether male or female, should weigh in the mid-teen ranges in pounds. Expect a rate of about 2 1/2 pounds of weight increase each week.
