Lab Weight Scale


So many people e-mail me asking what the proper weight is for a Labrador Retriever or how big their pup will get. Lab owners must realize that each Lab is different plus there are two distinct types of Labs: American (Field) Labs and English (Show) Labs. Our Lab Brats are the English breed and therefore are larger than the leaner American Labs. However, with Cheyenne & Dakota’s help, we have put together this age weight scale based on the Lab Brats themselves. Now, remember, the Lab Brats are full blood sisters from the same dame and sire but from two separate litters.

Dakota
7w – 10.5 lbs
7m – 50.6 lbs
12m – 83.4 lbs
14m – 83.4 lbs
15m – 82.9 lbs
16m – 82.9 lbs
19m – 85.2 lbs
20m – 88.3 lbs
21m – 85.4 lbs
2yr – 80.6 lbs
2yr – 82.7 lbs
Today (~3yr) – 80.6 lbs

Cheyenne
5w – 8.5 lbs
9w – 11.4 lbs
11w – 16.6 lbs
12w – 16.6 lbs
13w – 16.6 lbs
15w – 27.2 lbs
19w – 34.8 lbs
6m – 45.1 lbs
7m – 56.0 lbs
8m – 63.4 lbs
9m – 63.4 lbs
10m – 66.4 lbs
11m – 66.4 lbs
12m – 66.4 lbs
13m – 71.8 lbs
15m – 71.3 lbs
16m – 71.3 lbs
18m – 66.1 lbs
19m – 66.1 lbs
21m – 74.2 lbs
23m – 72.3 lbs
Today (2yr) – 70.8 lbs

Luckily for us, Dakota and Cheyenne are now full grown and won’t be getting any bigger. Due to Dakota’s hip dysplasia, we cut off 8 lbs of her weight to help decrease the weight her hips need to bare. Although both dogs are very big, they are very muscular and lean. This is the proper weight for a dog; healthy. You should be able to see the ribs but not be able to count them by looking at them. As Labrador’s are a large breed dog, the right amount of high quality food and exercise is crucial.

So, I hope this answers many of the questions new Lab owners have. Since there is no specific growth chart or weight scale for dog breeds, it is difficult to say exactly how much your dog should weigh. However, I hope this will help give some new Lab owners an idea of how to maintain a healthy and happy Lab.
