When is a cockapoo full grown?
As I discussed on my sizes page, there is not a definitive answer to when a Cockapoo will be full grown. This is because the smaller the dog, the less skeletal development is needed to reach optimum size. As there are four sizes: Standard, Miniature and Toy & Teacup Cockapoo, in theory, the Standard or Maxi Cockapoo will take the longest to reach full maturity.
But when considering a Cockapoo or any dog breed, rightly people think; how big is this animal going to be when it’s fully grown?
A full grown ‘Standard’ Cockapoo can grow as large as 18 inches from pad to shoulder.
When does a Cockapoo reach full size?
Small dogs reach the full grown size more quickly than large dogs. The miniature Cockapoo at six months is probably not going to grow any bigger. A standard Cockapoo bred from a Standard size Poodle parent will probably see their full growth at about 9 months.
Does the colour make any difference?
It may sound like a silly questions, but many people wonder if black Cockapoos grow bigger than crème Cockapoos. But it’s not true. Cockapoos of all colours grow at the same rate and reach maturity at the same age. Their final weight and height will depend on a number of factors like:
- A well reared and nourished dam
- The size of the Cocker Parent
- Nutrition and diet from puppy into adolescence
What weight is a Cockapoo when full grown?
A healthy, lean, Standard Cockapoo can weigh up to 19lbs if achieving 18inches in height.
Fully grown Miniature Cockapoos weigh anywhere between 13-18 lbs depending on the size of the parents and Toy or Toy-Teacup Cockapoos can still weigh up to 12 lbs.
