It is very important to keep your Labrador Retriever at an adequate weight. Unless your vet advises otherwise, you should try and keep your dog in the weight-range typical for his or her breed and gender.
By analyzing thousands of data points, we created the real-life Labrador Retriever weight distribution chart. For a typical female, the weight ranges from 22.4kg to 34.8kg and for a male from 28.7Kg to 38.7kg. That is, 49.4lbs to 76.7lbs for females and 63.3lbs to 85.3lbs for males.
The chart presents the percentage of the population that falls in a specific range. For example, the Labrador Retriever weight is such that approximately 15% of the male dogs have a weight between 30kg and 40kg (between 66.1lbs and 88.2lbs) and 15% of the female dogs have a weight between 25kg and 35kg (between 55.1lbs and 77.2lbs).
