Labradoodles weight.

Post by willow&kobi » 27 Feb 2014, 13:53

Im just a little worried about my willows weight after reading some posts, as their puppies seem to weigh a lot more than my willow..she is a kimberlene pup and she is 18weeks and weighs just over 9kgs..is this weight ok..im just in the process of changing her food to one i have researched called Millies Wolgheart. Please can anyone advise. I found this website below to be very useful as its all about star rakings for all the dog foods available.

if you click on the dog food then click on the dog food directory.

Hi
Our dog Sam is 17 weeks. He's a labradoodle with standard labradoodle mum and miniature poodle dad and expected to be medium sized. At 16 weeks he's was 8.2kg though think he's now around 9 if that helps any. What colour is yours?

Hiya, I think doodles weights vary widely. Pluto is 5mths old and weighs approx 16kg maybe a bit more. But the vet and the puppy trainer and just about everyone else we meet all say he's going to be a big boy. We recently changed his food from JWB to Lily's Kitchen and he is thriving on it. I think as long as they are eating, drinking, playing and in general good health I wouldn't worry too much about weight

At 18 weeks Beamish was 17.5 kg, and Poppy was 11 kg. Poppy is a very slightly built slim labradoodle - she is a very small standard weighing between 16 and 18 kg as an adult. I wouldn't have thought a standard doodle would be much smaller than her. Is Willow a standard or a miniature?

Multigen means that her parents were both labradoodles. If at some point one or more miniature poodle appears in her ancestry she could then be a miniature, or a medium labradoodle, so you can have multigen miniatures as well as multigen standards (or anything inbetween! :lol: :lol: ). Since Willow sounds similar to Sam I was wondering if she could be a miniature. If not then she does sound as though she will be a petite girl. It can be hard to tell at that age, but once grown up some doodles definitely have the build of a poodle and they tend to be lighter. I am sure she will be adorable whatever size she ends up! :D

Hi, not sure if this helps but Millie is an F1B mini and weighs 10.15kg at 10 months. She probably weighed around 3kg or 4kg at 18 weeks, I can't really remember. Oh and she's 16"/27" tall(I need to measure her again, I keep forgetting :lol:)

hmmm well although willow is just over 9kgs, she does measure nearly 17 inches now so she still could be pretty biggish? do you mean 16/17 inches and not 27? shes lovely.

Hi, I feed Millies Wolfheart and am very pleased with the product. I notice they say you can feed this food at any age but I would be tempted to call them and discuss this further as your dog is still very young. :)

Is Willow 17" to the shoulder? If so I would have expected her to weigh a fair bit more than 9kg - that does sound a bit light to me :?

Yeah, I'm with Bid. 9 kg isn't a lot for 17". Sams about 17 weeks, 9kg and 14 to 15 inches. Did you maybe measure to head or shoulder .
