Color Me Chocolate Labrador

Jun 6, 2008
Labrador Retrievers are considered the world's most loved. Many pet owners will tell you not a single day passes that their labs don't make them happy. Unfortunately the popularity has become a draw back. Because of the fact that most people own Labradors, having one is sort of less of a thrill for some people.

Chocolate Labradors are a breed apart from their Yellow and Black relatives. In an era gone by, Chocolate Labradors were considered as genetic anomalies. If a Labrador puppy is born with a Chocolate coating, then it is considered to tainted or abnormal. Black Labradors were revered, Yellow ones were acceptable but Chocolate Labradors were persecuted.

In the past, they would drown Chocolate Labradors to sort of expunge them from the Labrador genes. What happened was that the genes that made Chocolate Labradors became almost non-existent. Today only a small number of Labradors produce puppies that are colored chocolate.

Breeders looking for a quick buck found a way of getting Chocolate Labradors the easy way. They would breed purebred Labradors with any Chocolate colored dog, that nearly looks like a Labrador and the result is fake Chocolate Labradors.

Sadly, because of genetic incompatibility, and other breed mixing the so-called Chocolate Labradors produced from this kind of practice, usually have health problems and unstable temperaments. Common problems from these phony Labradors are rowdiness, being neurotic, anxiety, chewing incessantly and on occasion aggressiveness. Because of this dilution, some Chocolate Labradors are really dumb and difficult to train.

Instead, let me tell you that a breeder can actually be advised of whether a certain Labrador will produce Chocolate Labradors when bred with another. Knowing the statistics of colors that will be produced by a Labrador with a single breeding is important so that breeders can determine the stud pool, and the possibilities of producing a wide array of colors that the breeder wants.

Kids are fascinated with Chocolate Labradors due to their coloring. Feel safe and secured, it is safe to leave children with Labradors because they are very gentle and kind. You can see their gentleness because if they hold an egg in their mouth it won't even get a single crack. Do not mistake their fun loving ways for hyperactivity. Chocolate Labradors are fond of vigorous exercise.

Play with your Chocolate Labrador, it shows them that you care and love them. They are dependable and even tempered which makes them for a great companion. A Chocolate Labrador is a unique choice of color that will set you apart from other Labrador owners. So, go ahead and get yourself a Chocolate Labrador. But remember, be aware and be informed when purchasing Chocolate Labradors.
