The discerning designer dog lover will be glad to know that the Goldendoodle comes three in sizes. Thanks to forward thinking Goldendoodle breeders, who knew very well that there’s no such thing as a one-Goldendoodle-size-fits-all solution, we can choose from a Standard (large), a Mini (medium), and a Toy (small) Goldendoodle. Keep in mind that height, not weight, determines the Goldendoodle’s size.
At 20 to 25 inches from the paw to the shoulder, the Standard Goldendoodle is the most common among the three. Weighing anywhere between 50 t0 70 pounds, Goldendoodles tend to appear much larger than their actual weight because of their thick coat of fur. Males tend be larger in terms of both weight and height than females.
Don’t be misled by the name, the Mini Goldendoodle is still considered a large dog, though it is significantly smaller than the Standard Goldendoodle. It measures 16 to 19 inches from the paw to the shoulder and weighs about 30 to 45 pounds.
The smallest of the three, the Toy Goldendoodle measures 12 to 15 inches from the paw to the shoulder and gently tips the scales at around 15 to 20 pounds.
