    Default Appropriate Weight

    My Rottie has just turned one and has also just been de-sexed. I am always very careful to keep her lean especially as a puppy. I also have not over exercised her while a puppy. She has 2 30 minute walks a day. We do half an hour of training and playing a day. On the weekends her walks are 10 minutes longer and we do over an hour of training.

    Before we had her de-sexed she weighed 33kg and was on 2 feeds a day. A bowl of dry and a bowl of wet plus training treats. The bowls are large stainless steel.
    Now 2 months later she now weighs 32kg and is getting the same amount of food. Her walks are slightly longer.
    My hubby loves big, bulky rotties but I think because she is a bitch she will be a petite girl.

    Any advise????

    Yes she does have a beautiful chest like her mother!!!! LOL Her waist is tiny - very unlike her mother. We both have buns of steel from the hill from hell that we do every morning! But in all seriousness is there anything I can do to bulk her up! I only want to bulk her up if she will enjoy the extra or different exercise. I love her just the way she is!

    Some blood lines can take up to 3 years to mature

    Her bottom line should drop making her waist seem different in shape, my female rotti is only 42 kilos at 6 yo.

    How high is she at the shoulders?? does she have covering over her ribs and hips

    There's plenty of solid female rottweilers. My friend has a few. 32kg is small in my opinion.

    Prowler would depend on her height, if she is short she may not weigh much.

    But she can still look substantial in build even if at the bottom of the height range

    Is she a Registered rott or a BYB

    Who said anything about 55 - 60kg ?

    I never said a female should be as bulky as a male.

    I made a comment that if an owner wants a solid female rottweiler, they can have one. All a potential owner has to do is check out a breeders line's and do some research before buying.

    Friend of mine has several female's that our quite solid.

    I believe most aren't desexed.

    Valkyrie has excellent German bloodlines and we researched her parents very well. We could not see her father as he was in German competing but her mother was 46kg and a very solid girl. We have all her predigree papers. We got her from a very reputable breeder who has shown rotties all over Australia for over 20 years.
    The vet is very happy with Valkyrie's weight and body form. Her stomach tucks in at her bottom rib. She is 60cm at the shoulders. I will try and get some photos up when I can. Thanks for all your help so far.
