Ideal Weight

Q Kelsi asks:

My male, one year old, Border Collie weighs 14.7 kilograms. Is this an ideal weight or is he too light? I am unsure of this. (The picture provided is when he was about 5 months old. It's the only one I could find in a rush).

Q Our vet says: Male Border Collies are said to weigh between 17-20kgs. However, I would not worry too much if your dog is lighter than this at the moment. He is still very young and probably extremely active. It is always better for animals to be lighter rather than heavier. If your dog has no diarrhoea or other digestive complaint, is bright and active and full of life you probably have very little to worry about. He looks as if he is playful and active from the picture you sent in! (I know its from when he was younger)
