Got a new Goldendoodle puppy? Congrats! Between the excitement and adventure of raising your new pup, you’re probably wondering all about what he will become. “What will he look like as a full grown Goldendoodle? How big will he get? What is he supposed to weigh at his checkups?” These are common curiosities that many-a new puppy parent have. Let’s dive in!
Before we get into it, though, I’d love to invite you to Make Doodle Parenthood Easier For Yourself by joining Whitney & Chloe’s super cute and informative mailing list!

How Can You Tell What Size a Goldendoodle is?
This is assuming you’re asking whether a Goldendoodle is Mini, Medium, or Standard. Besides what the breeder has told you about your new puppy, it’s not quite that easy to tell what size a Goldendoodle is just by looking at him. This is especially true if a puppy is still under 4 months old. But let’s discuss in detail to see if we can get a good understanding.
Goldendoodle Age Chart
Just like humans, every puppy grows at a different rate. However, there is an observed general growth curve. And between Mini, Medium, and Standard Goldendoodles, that growth curve varies slightly, as well.
Now, we’ve been collecting weight data in our Doodle Characteristics survey and Doodle Growth Calculator. The table below is a Goldendoodle age chart, showing the average weights by age (in weeks), per size of Goldendoodle. The number in parentheses indicates how many people reported that specific weight.
|Average Weight in lb.||8 Weeks||16 Weeks||24 Weeks||32 Weeks||40 Weeks||48 Weeks||One Year||Full Grown Goldendoodle|
|Mini Goldendoodle||6.4 lb. (489 Owners)||14.4 lb. (314)||20.6 lb. (80)||22.1 lb. (20)||n/a||n/a||n/a||33.8 lb. (5)|
|Medium Goldendoodle||8.2 lb. (359 Owners)||21.1 lb. (252)||31.8 lb. (84)||39.6 lb. (22)||n/a||n/a||43 lb. (5)||43.5 lb. (11)|
|Standard Goldendoodle||10.2 lb. (762 Owners)||25.8 lb. (584)||40.6 lb. (200)||53.3 lb. (73)||55.4 lb. (26)||n/a||58.4 lb. (16)||65.1 lb. (33)|
Please keep in mind that for some of the data points our sample size is still quite low, but we will continue to update this table as we get more data from real owners.
Want to contribute your Goldendoodle’s weight and temperament data? Take our survey!
To summarize the table above, you can see that the average full grown Goldendoodle weights are as follows:
- Mini Goldendoodle: 34 lb.
- Medium Goldendoodle: 44 lb.
- Standard Goldendoodle: 65 lb.
We can also verify from the table data a few things. Each Goldendoodle size starts out weighing differently, and each size also grows at a different rate.
Visit this page to see a visual growth chart for each Goldendoodle size here.
So, if you really want to be able to tell what size a Goldendoodle is, get his weight and age in weeks. Psst: check out our Doodle growth calculator!

Time for the main event – let’s see some Goldendoodle growth pictures!
Candace Jensen has graciously allowed us to feature her adorable pup Ace here in this Goldendoodle “time lapse” photo collage. (Ace is a Standard Goldendoodle.)
Just look at this Goldendoodle then and now! How freaking cute is Ace? (Be sure to give Ace and his Aussiedoodle sister Pepper a follow on Instagram!)
Candace was also kind enough to provide us with Ace’s puppy weights:
Looks like Ace is right on track with the average weights shown in the table above.
Hopefully this post helps you to envision what your full grown Goldendoodle will look like!
