What Size is a Goldendoodle?
Goldendoodles come in three sizes, typically referred to as Standard (large), Mini (medium), and Toy (small). Within each size group, Goldendoodle height and weight will vary depending on parental lineage.
This is the most common Goldendoodle size. A standard size Goldendoodle is strong and lean with an overall athletic appearance. They have long legs compared to their body size, which makes them tall for their weight. Standard size Goldendoodles are typically taller than a Golden Retriever and have a normal height range of 20″ – 25″ (measured from the shoulder to the paw). Weight will range between 50 – 70 pounds. Females tend to be smaller in terms of both weight and height than males. Note that Goldendoodles often appear to be much larger than their actual weight due to their thick coat of fur (more on Goldendoodle coat types).
Mini Goldendoodles are noticeably smaller than Standard Goldendoodles, but are still considered large dogs. The normal size for a Mini Goldendoodle is 16″ – 19″ (measured from the shoulder to the paw). Weight will range between 30 – 45 lbs. Males and females tend to be of similar in size.
Toy Goldendoodles are the smallest Goldendoodle size and can be considered small dogs. The normal size for a Toy Goldendoodle is 12″ -15″ (measured from the shoulder to the paw). Weight will range between 15 – 20 pounds. Males and females tend to be of similar size.
