doesn't sound too out of sync for a standard sized LD. My Pacha (female) was about 40 pounds at 5 months. The growing will slow down from about 6 months. She's now 11 months and about 65 pounds. I don't think she'll become much taller, just fill out a little bit more.
I'd say your Toby may grow to between 65 and 70 pounds adult weight, which is within "normal range" for Standard Size.
Phantom was 38 pounds at 4 months, and i expected him to be 85 punds, and at just over a year he is now 87 pounds. If you know the weight at 4 months, you can double that and add 5-10 pounds. Now that rule does not always apply, so it is just kind of a guessing tool.
Exactly the way Phantom is. He is just a big guy. My mom always commented on how heavy he was even at 10 weeks. She could no believe a puppy could be that heavy. He is tall, and thin and just big bones, I guess.
If the vet says he'll be 40 lbs as an adult, he will indeed be somewhere between a miniature and medium LD (see the weight chart at: http://labradoodle-dogs.net/labradoodle-information.php) Are you sure his parents were standard size? (can't imagine two standards producing a miniature LD?)
Actually, I know of ones just as big.. LOL I know one that is 80 pounds, and another that is huge at 110 pounds. This one place that breeds them breeds them big!!!! You are right about them being big. I just thought that was normal, but I guess not. LOL I like em big. The bigger the better..
Holy cow!!! I better teach this man to heal or he's gonna kill me. He's very sweet but loose leash walking is not his specialty. Molly is really more what I expected. Toby's mom was the lab and she wasn't a whole lot bigger than he is right now. No Michael----size doesn't matter.
Our UK Bella's been ill so much it's difficult to say what size she'll turn out. At nearly 8 months, she's 16.5 kilos - roughly 33lbs. Now that she has had a diagnosis, and is on food that she likes, I wonder if she'll make up the ground?
Her parents were relatively small - but I still think she's behind on her growth...
You're in for an adventure! I wouldn't place any bets on predictions
either! :lol: These Doodles can fool you. My Doodle[Reagan] turned
one on August 19th, and at the vet last week - weighed in at a dainty
I pray she's done growing - but who knows? She was a 'normal' size
puppy, no clues [paws] to her future weight. She has always been a fussy
eater, so food issues have not contributed to her size.[ She just stoled my
Egg McMuffin while I typed] Reagan is just a big girl - with a big Doodle
heart :!: :!:
108 lbs!! wow!! That's big for a Lab or Golden female, not to mention a doodle!
I'm a complete failure at predicting size/weights. With the poodles being so much more slightly-built, I think the heights are a tad easier, in that with 2 parents you can sort of figure that's the range. But I've been wrong before, with one of our F1b males being a full 2" taller than his mom or dad. But he is slightly built, or all legs, :wink: so his weight is on the poodle side of things.
Seems like a breeders' forum I visit had a formula at 2mos. or at 4mos. <?> Sorry can't remember. Jac? Do you remember that one?
