Weight




Greyhound weights can vary very widely (especially between males and females) so it can seem difficult to estimate the correct weight for your dog.
Generally speaking, most greyhounds weigh somewhere between 20kg (small females) and 40kg (large males). When you adopt your greyhound, it's a good idea to ensure you retain weight records provided to you as these often list racing weight and racing weight is usually a good way to estimate correct pet weight.
A healthy greyhound should not weigh more than five kilograms more than its racing weight.
If racing weight is unknown, use to chart below to access correct weight.



A - You should be able to feel but not see three vertebrae.
B - You should be able to feel the dog's hip bones but not see them.
C - You should be able to feel ribs, with only two being (barely) visible at the end.
