Size & Health
Height & Weight
The size of a Goldendoodle depends largely on its parentage. A general rule of thumb is to add both the parents weights together and divide by 2 to get an average adult weight on the puppies. Within any litter there may be puppies that fall above or below the projected adult weights.
Standard – A Goldendoodle that is predicted to be 45 lbs or more at adulthood. (Some standard Goldendoodles have grown to more than 100 pounds.)
Medium – A Goldendoodle that is predicted to be 30-45 lbs at adulthood.
Miniature/Petite – A Goldendoodle that is predicted to be 15-30 lbs at adulthood.
As a hybrid cross they grow healthier and live longer than either parent line. The only genetic diseases they can be prone to would be those shared by both the Golden Retriever and the Standard Poodle.
Life expectancy – 15 years
