Wanting to know “how big a Goldendoodle will get” is a common question from visitors to our site (that’s why we created a Goldendoodle growth chart).  Often that question is mainly referring to weight, but there are lots of reasons you’d want to think about the height of your Goldendoodle as well.

A big one is obviously your dog’s crate size: it’s tough to tell how big a crate for your dog should be without knowing how tall your Goldendoodle is likely to grow to.

Thinking about puppy-proofing your home (particularly if you have a standard Goldendoodle and counter surfing is a possible issue) is another key concern when you’re thinking about bringing home a Goldendoodle (or if you have a doodle and are planning for the future).

To help with that, with the help of our veterinary advisor, Dr. Jennifer Coates, we created a puppy weight calculator and a series of growth charts (including the Goldendoodle growth chart).

In this post we’ll help you understand how tall different types of Goldendoodles get so you can plan accordingly.

What Age do Goldendoodles Stop Growing?

A Goldendoodle puppy goes through a typical puppyhood, consisting of multiple developmental stages. Those stages make up the first to second year of life.1 As she grows from a newborn pup to an adult dog, your puppy gains weight and height at relatively the same rate as other same-size breeds. For instance, a Standard Goldendoodle puppy will, on average, grow at about the same rate as other medium to large dogs like the German Shepherd and Collie.

According to the AKC, a small- to medium-size dog reaches 66 to 75 percent of their adult size by the time they’re 6 months old.2 If you have a Miniature Goldendoodle, chances are he’ll be pretty close to his full size at this point. A Medium Goldendoodle may take a couple of more months to reach most of his adult size.

A Standard Goldendoodle is a large-size dog and typically takes just over a year to become fully grown. But this is an average and some dogs can take up to 2 years to become full-grown adult dogs. The AKC estimates a large dog who weighs anywhere from 51 to 100 pounds reaches full size at around 18 months old.
