Just wondering, do puppies hit a growth spurt around 6 months again. I feel from 4 months to now (5 months) she hasn't grown at all. She has started getting more feathers on her tail and chest but overall size hasn't changed.

Wanted to see if we should expect her to hit another growth spurt soon.

Thanks guys!!

She will grow. Be thankful that she's growing slowly. Puppies that grow too quickly are more prone to joint problems. She is still very young. Most goldens will have reached their full height by the time they are around 12 months old and will continue to full out until they are between 2 and 3. She has a quite a way to go.

Thanks guys! I am perfectly fine with her staying little I just wanted to make sure it was normal for them to go a little while without growing and it wasn't something we were doing wrong! I will continue to enjoy her littleness now (if 45lbs is little lol).

Oscar gained about 7 lbs and 2'' in height between 4 and 5 month. And 45lbs for a 5 months girl is not a littleness:) Maybe she just grew up a little too fast in a previous month and now slow down a bit?

We are almost identical to Claire's Mommy & Jordan. Kye will be 6 mo on the 23rd and weighed 40 lbs last weekend, but she has grown and gained more between 4 - 5.5 mo. a total of 8 lbs. Not seeing her get a lot taller, but broader chest, more coat.
