I think you'll find growth for 18 to 24 months. Even when they reach full height they fill out body wise. Yours still has some growing to do.

Most breeds will be full size by the time they reach a year. Some breeds however will continue to grow until they are 18 months to 2 years old. You may try to use a harness w/ him and it may keep down on how often you have to buy new ones until he quits growing. Normally they have more adjustabily than a collar.
