Australian Labradoodle Sizes

At Good Day Doodles, we understand that canine companionship is not a “one size fits all” venture. No two families are the same, and their needs for their four legged members differ. We breed three different sizes of Australian Labradoodles so you can find the perfect pup to complete your family. The height of each breed size is measured from the wither, or the shoulder blades to the ground, because this gives the most accurate and reliable measurement for dog height. Weight is based on a healthy range for a full grown Australian Labradoodle of each size. Read more about the sizes below to help you determine which Doodle is right for you!

Miniature
Height: 14 to 16 inches from the wither
Weight: 15 to 25 Lbs
Miniature Australian Labradoodles are ideal for families who live in apartments or rental homes with breed and pet weight restrictions. At less than thirty pounds, they can easily accompany you and your family to pet-friendly hotels when you travel (most have policies that restrict pets to thirty pounds or less), and they are just the right size for kiddie cuddles!

Medium
Height: 17 to 20 inches from the wither
Weight: 30 to 40 Lbs
Medium Australian Labradoodles are slightly larger than Miniatures, and can weigh up to forty pounds. For families who have limited space, but a property without “small dog only” policies, a Medium Labradoodle can be the perfect pet solution. Mediums are still small enough to be lap dogs, but big enough to have a good game of tug of war or accompany you on your morning jog.

Standard
Height: 21 to 24 inches from the wither
Weight: 45 to 65 Lbs
Standard Australian Labradoodles are the largest size available. At twenty-two to twenty-four inches from the wither and up to sixty-five pounds, these pups bring the happy, huggable breed to the big dog table. Standards are ideal for active people with a lot of space, as they make good running partners and love to play.

The Australian Labradoodle is a very active breed, and needs adequate space and exercise. It’s important to keep the size of your home and yard, and your ability to exercise your pup in mind when choosing a size. For example, Miniature Australian Labradoodles would fare better in an apartment than a Medium Doodle. Likewise, a Medium Labradoodle would be better suited to a small house than a Standard. All three sizes are easy to train and very smart. They get along well with other dogs, so they make great additions to pre-started menageries, and are protective and loyal but not aggressive, so they are great with kids.
Australian Labradoodles come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s a perfect pet waiting for you to bring them home. These family friendly, sociable dogs are ideal for anyone seeking companionship and unconditional canine love, from singles to couples, kid-free homes and big families alike.
