Default Poodle weight

How much should a standard poodle weight or how do you know your poodle is at a healthy weight? Jenna has been last weighed at the vet in April , they didn't say much about her weight just that she should loose .8 pounds so she can have the flea treatment for 55 pound dogs but I still find her a bit chunky I cut down her feeding to 2 cups a day at this point you can feel her ribs and you can start to feel her hip bones she's also 24 and a half inches tallPoodle weight-imageuploadedbypg-free1372888423.738755.jpgPoodle weight-imageuploadedbypg-free1372888450.476853.jpgPoodle weight-imageuploadedbypg-free1372888464.693797.jpg

Im not an expert in these things but I can tell you what mine weighs just so you have a comparison and like an average. For me, shelton is around 26 inches and he weighs 48 pounds. His ribs has a nice coverage, but I can still feel them slightly.

Katie is about 23-24" (I think - can't seem to get an accurate height) and is just under 40lbs. Her ribs are fairly easily palpable and her hips are prominent - her vet thinks she could easily gain 4-6lbs. I've attached the best picture I could find to show her shape.

Body condition is another (better?) way to assess weight since dogs are built differently. This chart, Body Condition Scoring Chart, provides a decent overview.

Ok all sizes chiming in... Max is about 26 inches tall and he was just weighed this week, 65 pounds. He is not overweight and is actually perfect. I can still feel his ribs easily

From the pictures posted, your dog doesn't look severely overweight, but may be able to lose a few pounds to be at top condition. The best picture to judge weight is taken from above the dog. I don't have a standard poodle, but I have an alaskan husky who stands 24". She has a very thin athletic body and weighs 46 lbs with ribs easily felt and hips visible.

Here's a pic of Ralph's body. I've been told hes a great weight(46lb). I can feel his ribs under a thin layer of poodle meat. I can also easily feel his spine and hip bones, which I think is gross, but apparently poodley (?)

You guys have beautiful poodles , Love Ralph's Mohawk ! With Jenna you can feel her ribs with light pressure but you have to find her hips and or spine and i find the bottom of her chest is very flabby so I'm thinking it's more fat then extra skin because she also has allot of extra "skin" that hangs on her belly. I figured the problem that's making Jenna gain a few pounds is the treats we give her because i figured my mom give Jenna treats my brother does then i do so that can add up pretty quickly especially since their mentality is to give her a handful instead of one.. so maddening Thanks to everyone for the replies !
