Australian Labradoodle Colors

on April 18, 2012

Here I am giving you the different Labradoodle Colors that Breeders have developed. There are 5 main colors in the Australian Labradoodle bloodline: Black, Silver, Chocolate, Cream, and Red.

With the black labradoodle color, the dog is Jet Black all over.

Silver LabradoodlesSilver Labradoodle

Silver Labradoodles are born Black. Some Silver Labradoodles can be born with silver between their foot pads and an experienced breeder will spot this when the puppies are quite young.

Others may not develop any silver until around 8 or 9 weeks old, in the form of spectacles around their eyes.

The Silvers go through stages of brown, through to grey charcoal, with the silver coming up their legs, spreading to their hocks and tails and eventually their whole body.

The really good Silvers will go through a blueish stage and end up pure platinum.

Chocolate Labradoodles

All browns are born Chocolate. Cafes develop golden coat around their muzzles at between 6 and 12 weeks of age.

Most Chocolates end up Cafe, although some true Chocolates can appear to be Cafe due to sun burning which produces beautiful golden highlights through their coats.

If the coat is parted, the true Chocolate color can still be seen at the roots, whereas the Cafe will pale in color right through to the roots.

Creams vary from pale milky cream right through to rich Apricot Creams who are cream on body but have dark apricot ears.

Some will have reddish tinges through the coat as well. Some pale with age, and others deepen. First signs of deepening occur along the backline of the dog, on the muzzle and on the hocks and top of tail.

Highly prized, Reds are not easy to breed and are still comparatively rare (even in the Poodle). Some breeders will mistake Apricots for Red, but the true Red is the color of an Irish Red Setter.

Extremely beautiful, difficult to breed, and highly sought after. Most Reds will fade to some extent over time, so should be a very rich color when young.

As you can see Labradoodle Colors are available in a very wide selection.

Just go ahead and pick, all are adorable, loving companions that are hypo-allergenic and non-shedding.
