(Brodie and Ben. Notice the size difference. Brodie is a *normal size* golden.)
Ben is now a year and 2 months old. From head to tail he is 58 inches long, stands 26 inches from the floor to the top of his back, and is 37 inches in diameter around his chest to his back.
For a golden, I think he is rather large. He's up to 115 lbs., and has a huge frame. I am concerned that his size is going to affect his joints in the future.
Should I start him on weight control food this early being that he's still a pup?
Any advice would be appreciated, especially owners of large goldens.
