How large are adult goldendoodles?
Goldendoodles are a mix between a poodle and a golden retriever. Their size will usually be the average of their parents' sizes. Golden retrievers are usually 20-24 inches in height and can weigh from 55-80 pounds. Poodles are about the same height but generally lighter; from 45-70 pounds.

Goldendoodles are great dogs that people like to get if they have allergies because goldendoodles are not…

They may start chewing up shoes, furniture, or clothing, or start running around and being very obnoxious towards their masters if they don't get exercise. Good ways to give them this exercise is to take them for long walks, runs, or go play fetch with them in a large, open place.
Petite Goldendoodles were first bred, and named by, TIMSHELL FARM, Steve and Linda Rogers. Other breeders were raising Miniature Goldendoodles, crossing a purebred Golden Retriever with a Miniature Poodle, by way of artificial insemination or surgical insemination. This produces puppies of unpredictable size. Some may be 55 lbs. when grown and some puppies in the same litter might be 20 lbs. when grown. In order to raise Goldendoodle puppies that will be predictably smaller when…
