The large PlexiDor is the right size dog door for a Labrador.
There are differences between English and American labs, but the PlexiDor large accommodates dogs up to 100 pounds, and it is rare for a Labrador to weigh more than that. The average female weighs in somewhere between 55 and 70 pounds, and the average male between 65 and 80 pounds.
It is always a good idea to measure the dog before ordering. The opening size for the large PlexiDor is 11 3/4″ x 16″ – you can cut it out in a piece of cardboard and check if your dog will go through. Remember, the opening will not be at floor height; the door is usually mounted 8-10″ from the floor. They will lift their legs to go over the threshold. The top of the opening should be just above the pet’s back.
