Doodle weight

Post by clairelbrooke » 16 Jun 2014, 11:03

I know this has been discussed many times but was just wondering what other peoples doodles weigh and what size they are?

Buzz the "mini" but more like a medium is a portly 23.5kg and around 19" At 15 months so presume is now his adult size
Ruby the "giant" is 30 kg and 24" at 9 months!

Think I may have to allow for more calories burnt walking 8 stones worth of dogs :o

Dex is 7 months, medium, around 22ins to shoulder, and 15 kg at his last vet check a couple of weeks ago. I'm no expert but I think it depends on their frame. Dex has a slim poodle type frame under his hairy coat, and others have a stockier lab type frame. I find regular weigh ins at the vet really reassuring.

Roker has just turned 8 months and will apparently be a medium. He is probably about 17" tall currently and weighed in at 16.4kg when we went for his pet passport a couple of weeks ago.

claire,
Ianto is a 'mini' who is more of a medium... he has been neutered and weighs in at around 19kg. He's 20/21" at the shoulder and has 'broadened out' at 20 months old. I get my workout lifting him in and out of the boot! :?

Thanks guys, buzz is an f1 and basically a stocky hairy lab with stubby legs, Ruby is f1b and practically all poodle, long legs slim body. I presume she will get a bit bigger yet, she was clipped a couple of weeks ago so can imagine she'd have been a bit more with her big shaggy coat lol. I can lift buzz but no chance with her, she's a big girl

Lizzie is similar in size to Rigby as she is about 17-18" tall and weighs 11 kg. She looks reasonably well-proportioned when dry as her coat is quite fluffy, but when wet she looks like a rabbit carcass on long legs! Although she is a little smaller than expected, I like her size as she is big enough to look like a real dog, but light enough to manhandle when the need arises. Long legs and a lean frame mean she is extremely agile though, so I smile when I read about people pushing food to the back of the worktops, out of their doodles' reach, as Lizzie just leaps up onto the worktop or kitchen table should she "need" to look at anything, or jumps up onto the hob and down the other side if I close the baby-gate to keep her in one half of the kitchen! I did try putting a lot of tins on there to deter her, but she thought it was an assault course and knocked them all down, so now I just have a lot of dented tins.

Daisy is pretty average for a standard - she is 23" and weighs 27kg.

Poppy is very petite, and although she is 21" she only weighs 17 kg

Beamish is a chunky monkey - at 26" he weighs 36 kg.

I was always expecting her to be a big one, her brother from a previous litter is massive! And she was always a big pup <3 my doodle. There's no point moving stuff to the back of the work top either as she can reach to the top of the microwave haha

Scooby is 7 months old today and weighs in at 23kg. She was putting on 1kg a week until a couple of weeks ago now she is stabilising out. She is an F1b, her mam is a labradoodle and dad is a standard poodle, so we wait and see how bib she grows!

Lawks, I hope Ianto doesn't see this - the back of the work top is my last bastion of safety!!! :shock:

Ursa is probably about 20" and was 20kg last week. She's a very poodly shape, with long legs, quite a deep chest but a narrow pelvis and shoulders. I think she'll probably fill out a little bit, but I'm not sure how much taller she'll get - her legs are already very long compared to her body!
