Also known as Wheatendoodles, Wheatenpoos, Sweatendoodles, and Sweatenpoos, Whoodles are a teddy bear-like cross between a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier and a Poodle. These enthusiastic and headstrong dogs are perfect for outdoor-loving people. However, it might be useful for potential owners of these fluffy pups to know just how big they might expect their Whoodle to get. In this article, we’ll include a Whoodle size chart so you can get a better idea of their sizing.

Whoodles are a pretty new type of Doodle. This means that breeders are only just beginning to understand the various physical and behavioral attributes of these dogs. For that reason, breed standards might be a little hazy. However, keeping a close eye on your pup’s growth patterns could tell you all you need to know about their adult size with the help of our excellent interactive puppy growth calculator.

The Different Types of Whoodles

Playful, friendly, and active, Whoodles resemble perfect cuddle bunnies, but that isn’t exactly what you would be getting if you adopted one… As affectionate as they are, they also have a ton of energy. So you are going to have to work hard in the exercise department to earn those hugs.

The Whoodle’s intelligence and curiosity make them natural adventurers. These guys will demand some seriously long walks. However, after a day of exploring, their sociable nature means they will be more than happy to snuggle up with you on the couch so you can enjoy smoothing their plush-soft fur.

When it comes to size, there are a few factors to consider, the first of which, naturally, is the Poodle used in breeding (Standard, Miniature, or Toy). As Whoodles are new, many of them will be first generation – so parent sizes should be easy information to get. However, a few other kinds are starting to appear.

These are all the various types that are likely to be seen in the future:

Alhough Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers don’t shed much themselves, typically the more desirable Whoodles are the ones with more Poodle genes. These ones are more likely to inherit a low-shed, more hypoallergenic coat.

Whoodle Size Predictions

So why is it so important to know how big your Whoodle will be? Well, anticipating your pup’s future size lets you know how easily they will fit into your life – both literally and figuratively.

Little and large dogs have extremely different requirements in terms of food and exercise. They also grow at different rates, have different lifespans, and face varying health issues.

With that in mind, let’s delve a little deeper into the size standards… Just be aware that these are only guidelines and won’t account for every dog out there.

Whoodle Size Charts and Growth Patterns

The information is broken down by the three different types of Whoodle depending on the Poodle used in the breeding. 

Mini WhoodleMedium WhoodleStandard Whoodle
Weight15-25 pounds25-35 pounds35-50 pounds
Height10-12 inches tall at the shoulder14-16 inches tall at the shoulder18-20 inches tall at the shoulder
Age at Full-Grown7-8 months9-10 Months12-18 Months

As is the case with most dogs, Whoodles, no matter their size, do the most significant portion of their growing in the first 6 months of their lives. Although, of course, larger dogs will take longer to reach their full height and weight than smaller ones.

Speaking of, we’ve been collecting weight data from our Doodle Weight Prediction Calculator. The below Whoodle size chart / graph shows the average weights by age (in weeks), per size of dog.

As of October 24, 2022, we’ve received over 1,800 accurate Whoodle weight submissions through our calculator.

This is why it’s particularly important that your Whoodle puppy gets the correct nourishment he needs to grow that adorable little body into a healthy adult one. Check out our guides on best dog food for Doodle puppies here.

Miniature, Medium, and Standard Whoodles

Miniature, Medium, and Standard Whoodles will likely get to half their full weight around 3.5-5 months and their adult weight between 11-13 months.

At What Age Are Whoodles Considered Fully Grown?

The age at which a Whoodle is considered to be full-grown will depend on what type of Whoodle they are as well as the sizes of the parent dogs. So, for instance, if a Standard Poodle was used, but it was a particularly large one, this will impact the subsequent size of the Doodle as well as how long it takes them to get to that size.

Most Whoodles will have reached their maximum height by their first birthday. However, they may continue to increase in weight long after this as their muscles further develop. This is especially the case for larger Whoodles who may not get to their full size until 18 months.

While details on Whoodles are not quite as specific as for more established Doodles such as Labradoodles and Goldendoodles, you can still make a reasonable prediction about your pup’s potential size based on observed information and details we have on the parent breeds. Make use of our handy interactive calculator to ensure your expectations are on track and you can’t really go far wrong.
