A Super Simple Way to Weigh Your Dog

Share

Have you ever tried to get your dog to sit still on a bathroom scale long enough to measure her weight?

Not much fun — is it?

Nevertheless, to calculate a suitable dog food serving size, you must know your dog’s current weight.

Thankfully, there’s an easier way.

You can find out your dog’s weight using just three simple steps:

  • Step 1 — Weigh yourself
  • Step 2 — Weigh yourself while holding your dog
  • Step 3 — Subtract the two numbers

And voila! You’ve got your dog’s weight.

By the way, if your dog is too heavy for you to comfortably hold in your arms, most vets will gladly weigh your dog for you. So, don’t be afraid to ask.

Use our Dog Food Calculator to estimate your pet’s recommended portion size.
