As long as your doberman is healthy (worm free, not skinny) he is fine. His growth will depend on his bloodline. I have a line that can be 9-12 pounds at that age. My other line can be almost 20 pounds at the same age.

Do a little research on feeding your puppy. The amounts on feed bags are only guidelines not specific to your dog. I feed my Dob 3 times a day (daily ration div. by 3) and go day by day according to their activity and apperance. Puppies grow irratic, one day the legs seem to long, the next day the neck seem to short, etc. I agree, as long as your puppy is parasite free and you have chosen a GOOD food for growth of your puppy and vitamins, you should be good. Please don't over feed and have your puppy carry weight that would be detrimental to your puppies structure (bones, joints etc.)

When I got my two doberman puppies when they where 6weeks old and they ate non stop but did not gain a thing. took them to the vet shortly after and found out they had round worm. now that the worms are gone they eat alot less and they are 9 weeks old tomorrow and weigh 26 and 28 pounds.
