Hi and welcome. Our Luna is 6 months now. Her father was a standard poodle and Mum a labradoodle - so she is quite big! She was 3.4 kg at 9 weeks and now at 24 weeks is 19.5 kg. Her biggest growth spurt was between 3-5 months - it has now slowed a bit. You will have endless fun with Diego - Luna is a comical character - however they are invariably very mischievious and will keep you busy!

Welcome to the crazy world of The Doodle !!! I can't remember growth sputs etc but make the most of the puppy days - they seem to fly by. With regards what to expect, like Forrest Gump said "like a box of chocolates you never know what you're gonna git". :lol: :lol:
Enjoy the madness.

Hello and welcome! Our Dude is 5years old. Both of his parents and both sets of grandparents are Labradoodles. I hunted out the vets weight chart and can tell you: at birth he was 420g At 12weeks he was 8kg.
At 16 weeks he was 12.5kg. At 6 months he was20.95kg At 1 year he was 25.30 kg. And now he's 27.5kg.
In this pic he's saying " ok , I've been a good boy at the groomers, now GIMME THE BUSCUITS!!" :lol:

I don't suppose Diego was born in Manchester? If so I have his brother George with me.

He's full of energy and such a character.

He's great. Catches on so fast with things, let's us know when he needs to go outside and just have to tell him it's bed time and he goes in his crate until 6:30.

He's been such hard work but he's come on so much in the past few weeks. He's really good on his lead now too.

Can't remember life without him now!

Oh happy days to you Diego and George and a great big slurp of Prosecco and Valium to your mums. Holly went to sleep every night as a pup and woke up 2 sizes bigger in the morning!! So enjoy they grow sooo fast. They are really hard work at times but I have never known such a biddable loving humorous breed, plenty of entertainment needed, a bored doodle is going to find their own entertainment. Plenty of time out if over excited a lot like rearing children really most rules apply the same.
