In this article, you’ll find a Labradoodle size chart for Mini, Medium, and Standard Labradoodles. 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 Labradoodle will weigh when full-grown!
How big will your Labradoodle get? The million dollar question. Unfortunately, the rumors are true – it’s nearly impossible to predict a Labradoodle’s exact adult size because they are mixed-breed dogs. That’s where we come in!
We personally know the worry and anxiety that comes with the uncertainty of how big a Doodle puppy will get. 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 Labradoodles:
|Mini/Medium Labradoodle||Standard Labradoodle|
|Weight||15-50 pounds||50-90 pounds|
|Height*||13-20 inches||20-26 inches|
|Age at Full Grown||11-13 months||12.5-16 months|
A Labradoodle’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 Labradoodle generations and what each of them means:
|1st Parent||2nd Parent||% Labrador Retriever*||% Poodle*|
|F1 Labradoodle (first-generation)||Labrador Retriever||Poodle||50%||50%|
|F1B Labradoodle (first-generation backcross)||F1 Labradoodle||Poodle||25%||75%|
|F1BB Labradoodle (first-generation backcross backcross)||F1B Labradoodle||Poodle||12.5%||87.5%|
|F2 Labradoodle (second-generation)||F1 Labradoodle||F1 Labradoodle||50%||50%|
|F2B Labradoodle (second-generation backcross)||F1 Labradoodle||F1B Labradoodle||37.5%||62.5%|
|F2B Labradoodle (alternate cross)||F2 Labradoodle||Poodle||25%||75%|
|F3 / Multigen Labradoodle||F1B Labradoodle or higher||F1B Labradoodle or higher||Varies||Varies|
With each generation, we can achieve more control over a Labradoodle’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 Labradoodle, they can breed an F1b Labradoodle that has a Mini Labradoodle parent and a Miniature Poodle parent.
Labradoodle Size Charts & Growth Patterns
Like most dog breeds, Labradoodles 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 Labradoodle 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.
Labradoodle’s 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 Labradoodle size chart / graph shows the average weights by age (in weeks), by size of Labradoodle.
As of December 27, 2021, we’ve received over 22,000 accurate Labradoodle weight submissions through our calculator.
Mini and Medium Labradoodles
Mini Labradoodles generally reach half their adult weight between 3.5 and 5 months old. It will then plateau at its full adult weight between 11-13 months of age.
Like the Mini, Medium Labradoodles generally reach half their adult weight between 3.5 and 5 months old and will plateau 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 Labradoodles:
Standard Labradoodle Size Chart
Standard Labradoodles 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 Labradoodles:
A different formula you could use for any size of Labradoodle is:
We hope this article gave you good insight into the different sizes of Labradoodles, their growth patterns, and the formulas you can use to predict their adult weights.
