How big do Goldendoodle Lab mix get?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

Goldendoodle Lab mixes, also known as Labradoodles, can vary in size depending on the size of their Labrador Retriever and Poodle parents. Labs are typically larger than Poodles, so Labs tend to have a stronger influence on the size of the offspring.

Labradoodle puppies from Lab and Poodle parents can grow up to be quite large. Labs are known to be a large breed, with males typically weighing between 65 to 80 pounds and females weighing between 55 to 70 pounds. Poodles, on the other hand, are generally smaller, with males weighing between 45 to 70 pounds and females weighing between 45 to 60 pounds.

Considering the Labradoodle is a mix of these two breeds, their size can vary significantly. On average, Labradoodles may weigh anywhere from 50 to 65 pounds for females and 60 to 80 pounds for males. However, it is important to note that there can be outliers in the litter, influenced by the genetics of their Labrador and Poodle ancestors.

In some cases, Labradoodles may inherit the smaller size of their Poodle parent and weigh less than the average. This means that female Labradoodles could potentially weigh as little as 40 pounds, while males could weigh around 50 pounds. These smaller Labradoodles are more likely to have Poodle-dominant traits and characteristics.

It is important to keep in mind that genetics play a significant role in determining the size of a Labradoodle. To have a better idea of how big a specific Labradoodle puppy will get, it can be helpful to look at the sizes of its parents and even grandparents. This can give you a general indication of the potential size range for the puppy.

Additionally, factors such as nutrition, exercise, and overall health can also impact the size and weight of a Labradoodle. Providing a balanced diet, regular exercise, and proper veterinary care can help ensure your Labradoodle grows to be a healthy and appropriate size for their breed mix.

Labradoodles can grow to be quite large, with males typically weighing between 60 to 80 pounds and females weighing between 50 to 65 pounds. However, outliers influenced by smaller Poodle ancestors could weigh as little as 40 pounds for females. It is essential to consider the genetics of both the Labrador and Poodle parents to have a better understanding of the potential size of a Labradoodle puppy.
