what is his normal weight? His conditioned weight is his weight when he is worked and in shape. I don't worry about conditioned weight right now but once i start getting ready for weight pull i will!

You'll also here 'chain weight' which is their unconditioned weight.

Actuall conditioned weight is determined by maximizing your dogs physical potential. Its the best weight your dog can be at without taking anything away from your dog. For example last year Rebel stayed at 55-56lbs conditioned. Right now he is at 60lbs which would be his chain weight. Now seeing that he has matured some I will have to see if he can safely get back down to 55lbs or if he is stronger at 56-57.

i know about the chain weight and everything. rico will want to eat no matter how much he has had so i can use that as a premise. im just wondering how i can determine safetly what his conditioned weight is. he is curently 80.3 and the vet said thats a good weight for him.
