How to weigh your fluffy dog at home
There are different ways to measure dog body weight.
Many owners weigh their dogs before and after they’ve been fed. This approach is less effective, particularly with smaller fluffy breeds because their weight at the time of being weighed can be influenced by whether they’ve just eaten or taken in a large drink of water.
The best time to weigh your fluffy dog yourself is first thing in a morning.
How much should your dog weigh?
