It is very important to keep your Golden 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 Golden Retriever weight distribution chart. For a typical female, the weight ranges from 28kg to 34kg and for a male from 30Kg to 35kg. That is, 62lbs to 75lbs for females and 66lbs to 77lbs for males.
The chart presents the percentage of the population that falls in a specific range. For example, the Golden Retriever weight is such that approximately 45% of the male dogs have a weight between 27kg and 33kg (between 59.5lbs and 72.8lbs) and 35% of the female dogs have a weight between 25kg and 30kg (between 55.1lbs and 66.1lbs).
