Standard Poodle average weight at 8 wks & 16 wks.
Hello all,

Just wondering how much does a standard poodle weigh at 8 weeks? And how much at 16 weeks?

Well since there's a lot of variation of spoo size, that's a little hard to say, but my girl was about 23 or 24 pounds when I got her at 16 weeks. Not sure what she weighed at 8, since I hadn't met her yet. Now she weighs 53 pounds at 16 months and is about 23 inches at the shoulder. The vet says she is very lean, but she is sturdy girl.

At 2 years old, Cammie is 21.5 inches and 33 pounds. I'd say that she is a small standard poodle--one of the smallest I've ever seen. But on another thread Keithsomething said that 20-23 inches was average for a standard poodle. So there is some difference of opinion about what is small and what is average.

I don't have her weight at 8 weeks, but I do have the following:

10 weeks: 7 pounds
12 weeks: 10 pounds
16 weeks: 16 pounds

From 16 weeks through 28 weeks, she gained one pound per week. So for that period (until she was just over 6 months old), her weight was always equal to her age in weeks.

my baby is 7 pounds at 8 weeks, I'd love to hear more about other poodles and their sizes

Max was 8.5 pounds at 7 weeks old and is now about 24 pounds at 14 weeks.

Our pup is 8 weeks and 8 pounds. The vet just told me she was a bit too skinny. Which I thought was strange. She is eating her weight in dog food so I am sure she will keep gaining.

Research the threads on PF this topic has been covered many times. Can't give you puppy weight only adult since I adopted mine. When I got Leif he was 30lbs & 22" tall. Over The past 2 1/2 years he is up to 37-38 lbs. He us VERY active so does not gain much weight but I love his size & don't want larger which is 1 reason I chose an adult.

Alby was 9.5 at 8 weeks 2 days (vet scale) and at almost 11 weeks now is like 12ish (our scale w and w/o me). They (breeder & vet) think he will be on the larger end of a standard.

Ok I was SO off on the 11 week. I weighed him yesterday doing the weigh myself w then wo thing and he came in at 16 lbs even!!! He turned 11 weeks Thursday. I was looking at the paperwork from our lab and at 13 weeks she was 17 lbs. I can't believe our poodle is heavier than our lab was at this age! I'm anxious to take him to the vet next week to get an official weight. The breeder warned that she breeds for large poodles so a male could be upwards of 70 which is what we wanted. Just had to share my updated findings.
