Scale?

I was wondering if anyone could give me a good recommendation for a scale for a golden retriever?

Thanks!

Debbie

Just use the scales at the vet.

Most PetSmart have a scale in front of their clinic entrance. It's available for anyone to use. I also use the one at the vet, he is much closer and it's located in his lobby.

You could go old school and stand on your personal scales alone then pick up the dog and compare the difference... only problem with this method is it requires someone else to read the scales.

Thanks both of you! Vet is 45 minutes away so not an option except when we are there for something else. I didn't know about PetSmart. I'll check into them.

We've been doing it the old school way but Seamus is now 70# or so and a bit much for my 60+ year old husband to pick up!!!
