    DefaultIs my Labrador too fat?

    Lexi is a 2 year old fixed female lab. I'm wondering if she's too fat? She's around 70 lbs. I have taken several pictures. Any advice would be appreciated. I tried to feel the side of her ribs but I couldn't feel it so I'm not sure if I'm doing it right....

    Not horribly fat but probably would look better and be healthier if 5-7# lighter.

    She doesn't look fat as much as "soft" and lacking muscle. Up her exercise and it should sort itself out.

    I think she looks great! Sure, she could lose 3-5 pounds, but couldn't we all!

    I don't think he's gotten to that place where you should beat yourself over his size. However, just keep exercising him. You could also get him to participate in competition. I think some dog's agility equipment and program help.
