    . In this study, the body sizes of dogs between 1 and 6 aged were used. According to the results of analysis, it was determined that the relationships between all body sizes effecting live weight of dog were positive and significant (P<0.05 and P<0.01). The highest correlations at 5 aged dogs were determined between live weight and respectively rump height and withers height (r=0.799 and r=0.796). The direct effects of withers height, rump height, body length, chest peripheral, head length and leg length on live weight at 6 aged dogs were determined, respectively as 51.250, 17.748, 34.823, 15.197, 16.934% and 24.155%. The indirect effects of withers height, rump height, body length, chest peripheral, head length and leg on live weight were determined respectively as 14.333, 8.875%, 8.400, 6.833 and 10.275%.
