when will my boy stop growing
 
i know they are still growing until like 2 years but my boy is at 65 lbs and turned 1 on Saturday and was wondering if he will have anymore growth spurts and typically when do they occur if any specific time thanks!! (any stories)

If he just turned a year he is done growing upwards his height is more then likely done. But he will fill out now for another 1-2 years. So you will see his chest fill out, possibly the head will get larger and depending on the work outs he gets and genetics you may see some nice muscle definition.

In my experience, most people seriously over feed their dog at this stage, hoping to help them 'fill out' At one year, the growth of the dog slows dramatically, they aren't growing 'up' anymore. As the dog matures, changes occur , but these are subtle and everyone is always in such a hurry that they often continue to feed in the same manner of a puppy or even up food allowance to 'bulk them up'. The task you have is to watch the ratio between between muscle and plain 'bulk' (read fat) and allow your dog to mature to his or her potential without letting him/her get fat. Most dogs are fat, plain and simple.

yea i agree with you my dog is not fat and i dont want him to get any bigger he is big enough but he has a very nice curve where his ribs end and gets a ton of exercise im not worried at all of him getting fat, but i know what you are saying people make em fat just to say their dog is heavier.
