Labrador Retriever Colors

Labrador Retrievers come in three colors – black, chocolate, and yellow.  It is our belief, along with the belief of our parent club – the LRC – and the opinion of respected breeders worldwide, that the presence of the dilution gene is not part of the genetic makeup of a purebred Lab.  Adding the dilute gene causes the black coat to appear charcoal, the chocolate coat to appear silver, and the yellow coat to appear yellow still, but the black pigment will be bluish, and the eye color will not be correct. Unfortunately, the dilution gene can cause CDA (Color Dilution Alopecia), a lifelong & uncomfortable skin condition that cannot be cured, and a proper Labrador temperament is absent.  Following the Labrador Retrievers Club’s Code of Conduct, we do dilute test all of our breeding stock – all our dogs have come back dilute-free!

Golden Retriever Colors

The Golden Retriever Club of America would like to emphasize to breeders and puppy buyers alike that the cream color has always been part of the full spectrum of colors found in our breed. We furthermore direct you to the following section of our Golden Retriever Club of America Breed Standard (click here to view the GRCA Breed Standard): Color — rich, lustrous golden of various shades. Feathering may be lighter than rest of coat. With the exception of graying or whitening of face or body due to age, any white marking, other than a few white hairs on the chest, should be penalized according to its extent. Allowable light shadings are not to be confused with white markings. Predominant body color which is either extremely pale or extremely dark is undesirable. Some latitude should be given to the light puppy whose coloring shows promise of deepening with maturity. Any noticeable area of black or other off-color hair is a serious fault.
