In this article, you’ll learn about growth patterns for each type of Doodle. You’ll also find our interactive Doodle puppy growth chart and calculator, which will predict how much your Doodle will weigh at full-grown!
Our Doodle weight calculator is below, but you can also check out our Puppy Weight Calculator for over 450 other dog breeds!
Now, you’ve probably heard that it’s pretty much impossible to predict exactly how each individual Doodle puppy will grow. It’s true – because Doodles are hybrids, each Doodle’s genes will dictate how large or small it will be when full-grown.
This unpredictability might be leaving you feeling worried, anxious, or simply just curious. Luckily, we can take a “guesstimate” on your pup’s final adult weight based on observed growth patterns.
Before we get into it, though, I’d love to share with you Whitney and Chloe’s

Puppy Growth Chart Patterns
Like most dog breeds, Doodles do their fastest growing in the first 50% of their adult weight, which generally correlates to the first six months of life. They 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.
Due to this rapid growth, it is extremely important for your Doodle to get the nourishment he needs through specially formulated food for puppies.
In the study, “small” dogs weighed between 5-15 lb. This weight range is typically associated with Toy Doodles.
Based on the study’s data averages, we estimate that Toy Doodles generally reach half their adult weight at approximately 3.5 months old. A Toy Doodle 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 Doodle:
In the study, “medium” dogs weighed between 15-55 lb. This weight range is typically associated with both Mini and Medium Doodles.
Based on the study’s data averages, we estimate that Mini/Medium Doodles generally reach half their adult weight between 3.5 and 5 months old. A Mini/Medium Doodle will then 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/Medium Doodle:
In the study, “large” dogs weighed between 55-85 lbs. This weight range is typically associated with Standard size Doodles.
Based on the study’s data averages, we estimate that Standard Doodles generally reach half their adult weight between 4.5 and 6 months old. A Standard Doodle will then plateau at its full adult weight between 12.5-16 months of age.
Since Standard Saint Berdoodles become much larger than 85 lbs., they reach half their adult weight later than 4.5-6 months.
If you want to do a quick calculation, here’s the formula you would use to estimate the adult weight for a Standard Doodle:
We hope this article gave you good insight into the different growth patterns for each size of Doodle and which formulas you can use to predict their adult weights.
