|I’d say it depends on the breeder and the dogs they are breeding. Show bred labs are big, very built dogs, bred to be big. Can be a dominate gene passed on to the pup. When you breed big sometimes you may get one or two pups that go over size, but there is nothing wrong with them they are just big. They are not over weight but do carry some extra pounds for the show ring (not sure why they are adding weight now). But if you look at them they do have big features, like paws, legs and tail so even when they lose what weight they have they are still very big and would still be considered fat by field breeders. But this again I believe it falls on looks and what “looks” like it would make a good working dog. Both field and bench bred labs can do their job; it’s just more of a preference thing for the owner and just what they expect of the dog. Graycroft breeds the bench lab and they still perform like field bred labs.
Still can’t work the think thing so just paste it in your search bar. It will take you to Noah’s page who is BIG and still doing his job like field bred.
