Default Labrador sizes needed!

Hi,

Can any Dog Forum members who own Labradors please tell me the shoulder height and weight of their dogs (in cm and kg if possible)? I'm very interested to know the sizes of Labs owned by members of Dog Forum and look forward to getting some feedback on this!

Labrador Retriever — AKC Breed Standard

Partial quote:

Quote:
Size, Proportion and Substance
Size--The height at the withers for a dog is 22½ to 24½ inches; for a bitch is 21½ to 23½ inches. Any variance greater than ½ inch above or below these heights is a disqualification. Approximate weight of dogs and bitches in working condition: dogs 65 to 80 pounds; bitches 55 to 70 pounds.

The minimum height ranges set forth in the paragraph above shall not apply to dogs or bitches under twelve months of age.

Proportion--Short-coupled; length from the point of the shoulder to the point of the rump is equal to or slightly longer than the distance from the withers to the ground. Distance from the elbow to the ground should be equal to one half of the height at the withers. The brisket should extend to the elbows, but not perceptibly deeper. The body must be of sufficient length to permit a straight, free and efficient stride; but the dog should never appear low and long or tall and leggy in outline. Substance--Substance and bone proportionate to the overall dog. Light, "weedy" individuals are definitely incorrect; equally objectionable are cloddy lumbering specimens. Labrador Retrievers shall be shown in working condition well-muscled and without excess fat.

My two wouldn't stand still but they're roughly 55-60cm. They quite small labs. They both weigh about 27-28kgs. Hope that helps!

My Labrador is on the small side, only 20 inches at the withers and weights about 48ish pounds. I am sorry but don't know how to convert inches into cetimeters
