Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum

Our 8 month old F1B chocolate Labradoodle, Nico, is about 60 pounds and approximately 21" at the withers. How much do doodles routinely grow from this point on? I know it's tough to tell, for certain. I'm just wondering if he's topped out or if we can expect him to get even bigger (which would be FINE with us!)

He will probably gain some weight and some height, but not by a lot at this point. My Rosco is an F1 LD who gained about 10 lbs per month until 8 months...he's 3 years old now and only 80-85 lbs. I think he may have grown 1/2" from 8 months on.

So, if my boy here Thomas weighed 38 lbs. at four months-then I double this and add ten lbs. which would make him 86 lbs.!!! OMG-I really better start working on the jumping up. He is 50lbs. at six months old and can pretty much knock me over with his hellos now. I can just picture this big hulk running down the hall to greet me....the big goof.
he won't be 86 lbs--- Rosco is less than that and he was 60 pounds at six months. The addition of 10 pounds is a possibility after you double the four month weight. It's not a guarantee.
Whew, Thanks Adina- we really don't care what he will end up weighing-if he gets really big-more of him to love.
Debbie, He's so cute!!
I like the haircut Nico has in this picture. I'm trying to figure out how short to go for summer but don't want the poodle look. I'd have to go a little shorter on the face, but this is a good length for body.
Thanks.
We had to shave Nico in early January because the snow had matted his legs and belly and we had a heck of a time grooming him. It's grown back to this length in the past 2 mos.
This is a GREAT length now. He is still super curly but it's really easy to groom him. He needs a haircut around the eyes and top of the head, but other than that we LOVE his 'do'.
Dexter is a F1B labradoodle and he weighed 60 lbs at 8 months and now weighs about 62 lbs at 2.5 yrs. He finished his growing early.
