Is there anything cuter than a little doodle puppy waddling its way into your heart? As a long time dog lover, doodles hold a special place in my life. Today, we’re going to explore the different types of doodle puppies and their size variations. Get ready to fall in love all over again!
By now, you’ve probably heard of the popular Labradoodle and Goldendoodle, which are Labradors and Golden Retrievers mixed with a Poodle. However, the world of doodle puppies goes far beyond these two crowd favorites.
Let’s start with the tiniest of the doodle puppies – the mini varieties. These petite pups are typically a mix of miniature Poodles with another doodle. Take the mini goldendoodle, for example, which comes from breeding a standard goldendoodle with a Mini Poodle. The weight of a mini doodle is generally small, around the 20 pound weight class. Perfect for those in search of a pint-sized furry friend!
On the other end of the size spectrum, we have standard-sized doodle puppies. These pups are bred from full-sized Poodles and the other parent breed, like the popular Bernedoodle (a cross between a Bernese Mountain Dog and a Poodle). These cuddly giants can weigh anywhere from 70 to 100 pounds or more.
Medium doodles, like the Aussiedoodle (Australian Shepherd-Poodle mix), come from breeding a medium-sized parent with a standard parent and are perfect for families or individuals who aren’t quite ready for a massive dog but still want a sizable companion that can keep up with their active lifestyle.
Considering welcoming a doodle puppy into your life? A good rule of thumb is that the size of the doodle puppy can be anticipated by the parent breeds. Note that genetics can always surprise you, but having an idea of the sizes of both parents can give you a general sense of how big (or small) your doodle will be.
In my experience, it doesn’t matter whether your doodle is tiny or gigantic; these loving pups are sure to steal your heart. Their friendly nature, coupled with an irresistible appearance of a teddy bear, makes them truly unique companions. So, whether you’re curling up on the couch with a toy doodle or taking a jog with a standard one, these versatile pups come in sizes that cater to different preferences and lifestyles. Aren’t doodles just the absolute best?
