Can’t cast a vote on this.
Have had wondered dogs both yellow and black.
So a breeder you have researched and settled on has a litter, with all 3 colors, and both males and females. They all look good.
Chocolate for me,all Ive ever had.
I'll add that I would pass on a "silver".
I let my boy pick me. Showed up, he and two sisters were all that were left of the litter. One of the females was black and the other was chocolate. I played with all three for a moment then walked off, the BLM came to me and stayed around my feet the rest of the time I was there. So he chose me, and he has been my shadow ever since.
Not really. When you start breeding for color, you are likely compromising other traits. For example, Fox red labs are the new rage. US breeding programs are not stringent enough (we don’t cull labs) to breed for color and all the other lab traits. How many hunting breeds have been breed strictly for confirmation and how quickly hunting traits are gone. Irish setters, Golden retrievers, cocker spaniels.....the list is long. With the popularity of labs there is so much back yard breeding that finding good lines is not easy. And most hunters do not research lines. Cost is the first question they ask. Many if not most are bought on impulse or at least short term decisions vs planning a year out on a planned litter.
I don't disagree with your summary. But blatantly stating that all
is patently false.
All other things being equal, color has nothing to do with it.
