    I wish my 80-pounder had gotten the memo that he was supposed to be slower. It would sure help out his slow-on-the-whistle trainer.

Nothing worse than joint problems

    My 10 month old is around 70-75lbs
    and is in the Ideal range shown in Picture #2.

    I feed him the exact recommended amount of food.

    Love the chart by Dustin. Have a hard time believing that the 7 month old 88lbs Female is not at least 10lbs overweight or more. Heck I have a hard time believing that a female lab of any age is not overweight at 90lbs. I wonder what the % of body weight is fat for that lab and labs in general....

    Tried to get my dog to stand on a bathroom scale that also reads body fat and it was pretty funny trying to get all 4 legs on the scale, then I thought to myself this is such a gooser thing to do......so I stopped haha

    I agree Tank is over weight, told him to cut down the food and more exercise.
    He feeds adult food not puppy. This dog drinks water like there is no tomorrow.
    Sticks his face in and gobbles, >
