I have some questions regarding English labs. My lab is "AKC" certified full English and he doesn't seem to have a huge blocky head like most English dogs have. My dog weighed in at 71lbs yesterday but I believe he has some filling out to do yet. When do their heads stop growing? I'll post a couple pics from when he brought him home and today. His dad is 100 lbs not sure how much his mom weighs. Can my dog still add 10-15lbs or is he going to stay around his current weight? Thanks
I'm not sure what an akc certified full english lab means.... are his parents show dogs? Do both mom and dad have nice heads? If so, he'll probably follow suit. Has he been neutered yet? Boys will definitely continue to fill out until their 2yrs or so... especially if still intact.
He isn't neutered yet. I was looking at pictures of his parents and his dad has a big blocky head and built, his mom is pretty good sized but head isn't blocky like his father. He's 30 lbs lighter than his dad and the breeder said he should be a 90 lb dog full grown but at this rate I don't see it.
Also I may of misspoke about AKC certified. I meant he comes from AKC parents if that means anything.
Welcome to the forum! I know nothing about breeding standards XD
