It is very important to keep you Australian Shepherd at an adequate weight. Unless your vet advises otherwise, you should try and keep your dog in the weight-range typical for his or her breed and gender.
By analyzing thousands of data points, we created the real-life Australian Shepherd weight distribution chart. For a typical female, the weight ranges from 18.2kg to 23.8kg and for a male from 20.4kg to 27.5kg. That is, 40.1 lbs to 50.5 lbs for females and 45 lbs to 60.8 lbs for males.
The chart presents the percentage of the population that falls in a specific range. For example, the Australian Shepherd weight is such that approximately 10% of the male dogs have a weight between 15kg and 20kg (between 33.1lbs and 44.1lbs) and 12% of the female dogs have a weight between 15kg and 17kg (between 33.1lbs and 37.47lbs).
