Just out of interest, what is the size & weight of your Doodle? Is there a known range that they go by at all?

I'd like to take some measurements of Dulcie & see how she compares to other doodles. She is a first gen with a brown poodle mum & a blonde lab dad, and wondered how this might also effects size/coat etc. [/img]

Uma will be 2 in April and has tapped out at 50 lbs. She looks a lot bigger than she is because of all the fluff, but when she gets wet, she's still pretty skinny. (She's also a 1st generation pup)

Marley weighs in at about 50 lbs at 8 months. Not sure on height but he is tall for his age I am guessing..I would say between 26 and 27 inches. I am curious...I will check it tonight. That is head height. Not sure if you are supposed to measure to shoulders or head but I go head..that is the highest part, and if ya wanna know height you go to the top. :D

well guys, I have tried to measure her - but it was tricky!

To top of shoulder - 60cm/24in (not sure what 'withers' are)
To top of head - 80cm/32in

She is now 2 years & 3 months and she weighs a whopping 88lbs - The vet wants her to lose at least 10lbs. I want her to get back her lovely waist shape instead of the barrel belly she has now.

It seems looking at everyones answers that they do vary greatly, so I don't feel qiute as bad about Dulcie's size, she was alwys gonna be a big girl, but I think if we manage to get off that extra 10lbs, she'll be happier & healthier.

Thanks

Ok i remember correctly....Max was 35 lbs at 17-18 weeks old
around 54lbs at 8-9mos ....then at 12 mos till now (18mos) his average weight is 83-83lbs

the chart Linda posts from the web if not i'll repost if anyone wants really is a fairly accurate and good guide to use

Max grew 1 inch between 9-10mos and peanut grew a 1/2
which is the 'growth spurt" i talked about.

NOTE: if you feed a real high protein diet you can cause rapid growth in a dog which is why Large breed dogs are fed a different formula/diet so they grow properly at the right rate
lastly this is why jumping alot, stairs, frisbees, jogging etc is emphasized
to be real lowkey on this for the 1st year
otherwise damage can be done to bones, tendons and ligaments that are growing and stretching naturally.

sorry for the "lesson" hahhahaaa
