Herein is a look into an Aussiedoodle’s growth pattern, what to expect of them from birth to adulthood, and what factors affect their development.

Aussiedoodle Growth Pattern


How big do Aussiedoodles get? Well, like most dogs, Aussiedoodles grow the fastest during the first half of their life. The fast-growing happens during the first six months of puppyhood.

400;”>Aussiedoodles reach 95% of their body weight at 12 months and are considered fully grown at two years when they complete the adolescence phase.

When it comes to their height, their measurements are as follows:

  • Toy Aussiedoodle: Ten to 12 inches
  • Miniature Aussiedoodle: 12 to 19 inches
  • Standard Aussiedoodle: 19 to 24 inches

The best way to tell how big your Aussiedoodle will grow is by taking your dog for a DNA test.

Apart from a DNA test, you can use the formulas below to predict growth.

Toy Aussiedoodles

Toy Aussiedoodles reach half their adult weight at three and a half months and adult weight at seven and a half to 11 months.

To estimate Toy Aussiedoodle weight in adulthood, use the below formula:

  • Adult weight = weight at 15 weeks old × 2

Mini and Medium Aussiedoodles

Mini and Medium Aussiedoodles reach half their adult weight at three and a half to five months and adult weight at 11 to 13 months.

Use this formula to estimate their weight in adulthood:

  • Adult weight = weight at 18 weeks old × 2

Standard Aussiedoodles

Standard Aussiedoodles reach half their adult weight at four and a half to six months and adult weight at 12.5 to 16 months.

Here’s how to calculate a full-grown Aussiedoodle’s weight:

  • Adult weight = weight at 23 weeks old × 2   

You can also use this next formula to calculate the adult weight for any Aussiedoodle size:

  • Growth = current weight ÷ current age in weeks
  • Adult weight = growth × 52 (no. of weeks in a year) 

The table below shows the range of weight and height in Aussiedoodles:

Standard Aussiedoodle20 – 24 inches at the shoulder35 – 70 pounds
Miniature Aussiedoodle12 – 20 inches at the shoulder15 – 35 pounds
Tiny Aussiedoodle10 – 12 inches at the shoulder6 – 15 pounds

What To Expect From Birth To Full Grown


Here is a summary of the exciting journey to expect of your Aussiedoodle from birth to full grown:

Birth to Two Weeks

At this age, Aussiedoodles are very delicate and depend on their mother for food and protection. They also need warmth, which they get from their mother, but you can also contribute by providing a warm blanket.

Their tiny muscles are still too weak to move around.

Three Weeks to 12 Weeks

Aussiedoodles’ muscles become more muscular, and teeth start developing. They are also fully weaned by 28 to 30 days.

Four Months to Six Months

Your Aussiedoodles will undergo teething at this stage. At six months, a male puppy weighs about seven pounds for a smaller dog and 70 pounds for the biggest dog. Female puppies are smaller than males at six months.

Seven Months to Nine Months

Your Aussiedoodle female enters the heat cycle, lasting four to eight weeks. They are fertile at this age, but it’s not advisable to let them get pregnant because they are still puppies even though they can get pregnant.

Smaller Aussiedoodles reach maximum growth at this age.

Ten Months to 12 Months

Your dog is now active and exploring its surroundings. They also get in trouble with their owners because they haven’t learned boundaries. This age is the best to start training your Aussiedoodle on proper habits.


At two years, both the male and female Aussiedoodle will be the full-grown size and considered adult dogs with an athletic body and a full curly coat.

Factors Affecting Growth of Aussiedoodles


Several factors affect the size of an Aussiedoodle. They include:

  • Parents
  • Nutrition
  • Medical conditions
  • Exercise
  • Good environment
  • Neutering and spaying


Purebreds have breed standards that let you know how big a dog will grow, but for a crossbreed like an Aussiedoodle, it can be hard to predict.

For the Australian Shepherd and the Poodle, males are typically larger than females of the same breed. Therefore, an Aussiedoodle will be bigger if the father is a Poodle than if the mother is a Poodle.

The rule applies when you breed an Australian Shepherd with a Toy Poodle, Miniature Poodle, or Standard Poodle. 


The choice of puppy food can contribute to an Aussiedoodle’s final size. Puppy food contains many calories and will grow your dog faster than adult dog food.

If you give them adult dog food when they are still young, they may miss out on essential nutrients and not reach their full potential size.

An Aussiedoodle eats between two and three cups of dry food daily. If your Aussiedoodle weighs 50 pounds, feed it 1,350 calories per day. 

The dry food should be a mixture of high-quality grain-free food. It should contain protein, vegetables, and meat. Avoid wheat because it can cause an allergic reaction in your dog.


Lack of exercise can cause stunted growth in your Aussiedoodle. Be careful because strenuous exercise can damage growth plates of long bones and cause your puppy to grow abnormally.

Full-size Aussiedoodles need 30 minutes to two hours of exercise daily. Since their parents are Australian Shepherds and Poodles, two very intelligent dog types, the Aussiedoodle requires mental stimulation.

They get bored fast and might become destructive. They are also excellent swimmers, so you can also take them swimming.


Always take your dog for regular checkups so that any health issues that can stunt their growth are dealt with.

An Aussiedoodle’s most prominent health problem is hip dysplasia, which causes arthritis and joint pain. This problem is manageable through diet and exercise.

Poodles are prone to hereditary cataracts, which can be passed to Aussiedoodles. If discovered early, it is treatable, but if left for too long, it becomes untreatable.

400;”>Dogs are also prone to worm infection. Common worms in puppies include hookworms and roundworms, which steal calories from the puppy and slow down its growth.

You can give your Aussiedoodle mineral and vitamin supplements to boost their growth if you notice that they’re growing too slowly.  

Good Environment

The environment your Aussiedoodle lives in determines how healthy and big they grow.

Speak to them in a firm but kind voice, groom them regularly and keep their environment clean.

Show them love, and they will live stress-free. Stress can cause stunted growth in animals.

Spaying and Neutering

The best time to neuter or spay an Aussiedoodle is after the growth plates of growing skeletons close, which happens at 18 months.

The male or female hormones are removed when a dog is spayed or neutered. However, these hormones are responsible for bone development and growth, and the puppy may end up with stunted growth if they are removed early.

What Does Grown Aussiedoodles Look Like?


Full-grown, full-size Aussiedoodles are fluffy looking. They resemble stuffed animals, and their coats are medium in length and may be wavy due to the Poodle parent or sleek due to the Australian Shepherd parent.

Though their fur is thick, a tall, slender, athletic body is underneath that coat. Their faces are alert and may even have blue eyes due to the Australian Shepherd genes.

400;”>Australian Shepherds come in more shades of color than Poodles, so there are different variations.

Aussiedoodles rarely come in a solid color, so it is rare to see a full-size black Aussiedoodle or full-grown brown Aussiedoodle. They will have at least two colors.

So, When Does Aussiedoodle Stop Growing?


Aussiedoodles reach their maximum height at one year, but they can continue growing a little more past one year as they gain girth and weight. You’ll likely have your full-grown Aussiedoodle around one to two years.

Aussiedoodles grow the fastest during the first half of their life, usually during the first six months of puppyhood. They reach 95% of their body weight at 12 months and are considered fully grown at two years. 

Toy Aussiedoodles reach full growth at seven and a half to 11 months, while Mini and Medium Aussiedoodles reach full growth at 11 to 13 months.

Factors like diet, environment, and hereditary diseases affect how big your dog turns out to be.
