Labrador Weight Chart – How Much Should My Labrador Weigh?
The average weight of a dog varies from breed to breed. Some are smaller than others. There are some breeds which have an average weight around 30 pounds while other breeds have weights ranging between 40 and 50 pounds. A large variety of sizes exist within each breed. Labradors fall into the larger size category with a mean weight of 37 lbs (17 kg). The most common size for a Labrador is between 14 and 17 lbs (6-8 kg) and there are many different colors available.
It is very difficult to determine what the ideal weight of your dog should be based on its breed or any other factor. However, it’s always good to make sure that your pet isn’t suffering from health problems related to being overweight. If your dog is overweight, then it could cause him to develop obesity and other medical conditions. Obesity can lead to increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and arthritis.
