How big will your Aussiedoodle get? The age old question. And you’re probably asking because you’ve been told that it’s nearly impossible to predict an AD’s exact adult size. Unfortunately, that’s true. But never fear! In this article, you’ll find an Aussiedoodle size chart for Toy, Medium, and Standard Aussiedoodles. You will also learn about their growth patterns, with links to our interactive Doodle puppy growth chart and calculator, which will predict how much your Aussiedoodle will weigh at full-grown!
Because Aussiedoodles are a mixed-breed between the Poodle and Australian Shepherd, each AD’s genes will dictate how small or large it will be when it reaches maturity. That is to say – its final adult size is pretty much unpredictable.
This unpredictability might be leaving you feeling worried, anxious, or simply just curious. Luckily, we can make a “guesstimate” on your pup’s final adult weight based on observed growth patterns.
Let’s have a look at the typical size predictions of Aussiedoodles:
|Toy Aussiedoodle||Medium Aussiedoodle||Standard Aussiedoodle|
|Weight||10-15 pounds||15-45 pounds||45-70 pounds|
|Height*||10 inches or less||10-15 inches||15-25 inches|
|Age at Full-Grown||7.5-11 months||11-13 months||12.5-16 months|
F1 Vs F1b Vs F2b Aussiedoodle
An Aussiedoodle’s full-grown size is also determined by their generation. What does it mean exactly? Well, as we are combining two different purebred dogs, the generations are a great guideline that show us how much of the puppy’s genetic makeup consists of either of the parent breeds.
Let’s take a quick look at the Aussiedoodle generations and what each of them means:
|1st Parent||2nd Parent||% Australian Shepherd*||% Poodle*|
|F1 Aussiedoodle (first-generation)||Australian Shepherd||Poodle||50%||50%|
|F1B Aussiedoodle (first-generation backcross)||F1 Aussiedoodle||Poodle||25%||75%|
|F1BB Aussiedoodle (first-generation backcross backcross)||F1B Aussiedoodle||Poodle||12.5%||87.5%|
|F2 Aussiedoodle (second-generation)||F1 Aussiedoodle||F1 Aussiedoodle||50%||50%|
|F2B Aussiedoodle (second-generation backcross)||F1 Aussiedoodle||F1B Aussiedoodle||37.5%||62.5%|
|F2B Aussiedoodle (alternate cross)||F2 Aussiedoodle||Poodle||25%||75%|
|F3 / Multigen Aussiedoodle||F1B Aussiedoodle or higher||F1B Aussiedoodle or higher||Varies||Varies|
With each generation, we can achieve more control over a Aussiedoodle’s size and other characteristics, such as their coat type and appearance. For instance, if a breeder’s goal is to achieve a smaller Mini Aussiedoodle, they can breed an F1b Aussiedoodle that has a Mini Aussiedoodle parent and a Miniature Poodle parent.
Aussiedoodle Size Charts & Growth Patterns
Like most dog breeds, Aussiedoodles do their fastest growing in the first 50% of their adult weight. This typically corresponds to the first six months of puppyhood.
This is why it’s particularly important that your Aussiedoodle puppy gets the correct nourishment they need to grow that adorable little body into a healthy adult one. Check out our guides on best dog food for Doodle puppies here.
Aussiedoodles generally reach their maximum height by one year old but can spend a little longer gaining girth and weight. They generally finish growing anywhere between 1-2 years of age.
Speaking of, we’ve been collecting weight data from our Doodle Weight Prediction Calculator. The below Aussiedoodle size chart / graph shows the average weights by age (in weeks), per size of Aussiedoodle.
As of December 28, 2021, we’ve received over 24,000 accurate Aussiedoodle weight submissions through our calculator.
Toy Aussiedoodles generally reach half their adult weight at approximately 3.5 months old. It will then plateau at its full adult weight between 7.5-11 months of age.
If you want to do a quick calculation, here’s the formula you would use to estimate the adult weight for a Toy Aussiedoodle:
Mini and Medium Aussiedoodles
Mini and Medium Aussiedoodles generally reach half their adult weight between 3.5 and 5 months old. It will also plateau at its full adult weight between 11-13 months of age.
If you want to do a quick calculation, here’s the formula you would use to estimate the adult weight for a Mini or Medium Aussiedoodle:
Standard Aussiedoodles generally reach half their adult weight between 4.5 and 6 months old. It will then plateau at its full adult weight between 12.5-16 months of age.
If you want to do a quick calculation, here’s the formula you would use to estimate the adult weight for Standard Aussiedoodles:
A different formula you could use for any size of Aussiedoodle is:
We hope this article gave you good insight into the different sizes of Aussiedoodles, their growth patterns, and the formulas you can use to predict their adult weights.
