    DefaultDoes anyone own a dog scale?

    I saw Dr Fosters has the big one for about 150$......

    Im determined to get Dale down to 85 pounds and itd be easier if I could keep track of his weight at home.

    If you own one, where did you get it?

    I don't own one, but weigh both of them regularly. I just get on the scale, record my weight, then pick them up and get on the scale holding them (one at a time, obviously). Subtract my weight from combined weight and voila!
    It's getting harder with Baloo, but I can still do it relatively easily.

    Heck no. If I want to know how much one of the dogs weighs I take them into the vet and use theirs for free.

    We do the same. Our vet doesn't mind one bit.

    Dale urinates on himself at the vet so I wanted to minimize stress.

    I do that with Molly....shes still 53 pounds...Dale is closer to 96 pounds, so that wont work without hurting both of us heehee....but I noticed hes gotten leaner, I can see his hips, so I was looking into purchasing one and keeping a log of weight/food consumption/exercise and getting him a little healthier.

    Where I get Jes's food has a scale too. I always plop his 33lb (or 40lb depending on the food I'm buying) bag of food on the scale to see how close it is. I guess I'm operating under the assumption that a 40lb bag of food normally has 40lbs of food.
