Goldendoodle Size Predictions
Now, you’ve probably heard that it’s pretty much impossible to predict exactly how each individual Goldendoodle puppy will grow. It’s true – because Goldendoodles are hybrids – a cross between the Poodle and Golden Retriever – each Goldendoodle’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.
Let’s have a look at the typical size predictions of Goldendoodles:
|15 inches or less
|Age at Full-Grown
The largest of the bunch are Standard Goldendoodles with their weight ranging between 50 and 90 pounds, and their height between 20 and 26 inches. Then we have Mini and Medium Goldendoodles. Medium Goldendoodles are slightly larger, usually weighing around 35 to 50 pounds, whereas the Mini Goldendoodle’s weight tends to be 25 to 35 pounds on average. And finally, the smallest are Toy Goldendoodles who usually weigh about 10 to 25 pounds, and they’re less than 15 inches tall.
F1 Vs F1b Vs F2b Goldendoodle
A Goldendoodle’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 Goldendoodle generations and what each of them means:
|% Golden Retriever*
|F1 Goldendoodle (first-generation)
|F1B Goldendoodle (first-generation backcross)
|F1BB Goldendoodle (first-generation backcross backcross)
|F2 Goldendoodle (second-generation)
|F2B Goldendoodle (second-generation backcross)
|F2B Goldendoodle (alternate cross)
|F3 / Multigen Goldendoodle
|F1B Goldendoodle or higher
|F1B Goldendoodle or higher
With each generation, we can achieve more control over a Goldendoodle’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 Goldendoodle, they can breed an F1b Goldendoodle that has a Mini Goldendoodle parent and a Miniature Poodle parent.
Goldendoodle Size Chart & Growth Patterns
Like most dog breeds, Goldendoodles do their fastest growing in the first 50% of their adult weight, which generally correlates to the first six months of life.
This is why it’s particularly important that your Goldendoodle 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.
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.
Speaking of, we’ve been collecting weight data from our Doodle Weight Prediction Calculator. The below Goldendoodle size chart / graph shows the average weights by age (in weeks), by size of dog.
As of October 24, 2022, we’ve received over 206,000 accurate Goldendoodle weight submissions through our calculator.
Toy Goldendoodles generally reach 50% of their adult weight around 3.5 months old. They will then plateau at their 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 Goldendoodle:
Mini and Medium Goldendoodles
Mini Goldendoodles generally reach 50% of their adult weight between 3.5 and 5 months old. They will then plateau at their 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 both Mini and Medium Goldendoodles:
Standard Goldendoodle Size Chart
Standard Goldendoodles generally reach 50% of their adult weight between 4.5 and 6 months old. They will then plateau at their 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 Goldendoodles:
A different formula you could use for any size of Goldendoodle is:
Goldendoodle Size Predictions: FAQ
In general, Goldendoodles stop growing sometime around their first birthday. However, their size does play a role here, as smaller dogs usually finish growing way sooner than larger dogs. In fact, Standard Goldendoodles can continue growing up until they’re 16 months of age. In contrast, smaller Medium, Mini, and Toy Goldendoodles will most likely finish growing earlier than that. Another thing to note is that Standard Goldendoodles will often have reached their full-grown height around 12 months old, but they will continue to gain weight to fill out over the upcoming months.
Considering the estimated Mini Goldendoodle’s weight and height at full-grown, we can expect Minis to finish growing around 11 to 13 months of age. In addition to that, the smallest Toy Goldendoodles usually reach their full-grown size even earlier – between 7.5 and 11 months of age.
We hope this article gave you good insight into the different sizes of Goldendoodles, their growth patterns, and the formulas you can use to predict their adult weights.
