Black Pointing Labs & Puppies

Classic. Sleek. Shiny.

Like single malt scotch and fine cigars. Or a clean black sports car.

I love pointing lab puppy pick-up day. It is on these days that folks come from all walks of life to our kennel to pick out their new pointing lab puppy. Throughout the process of selecting a dog there is a constant back and forth questioning exchange between us and the clients.

It never fails that at least one time – and possibly many times — during our conversations we will discuss your color preference.

What caused you to lean toward this color of puppy? The answers range from “black dogs blend into the background better in a duck boat” to “Its cold in Canada, and they pop in the snowy landscapes”.

NO Silver, Charcoal, Ivory, Champagne, etc. when it comes to color – stick to the original three. Your dog’s health is what is at stake here.

Points to Consider

Point #1

There are three colors of labrador retreivers

There are three main colors when it comes to retriever / pointing labs, and those colors consist of:

  • Black
  • Yellow – And all its phases.
  • Chocolate

Point #2

Black was the original

If you go way back in time, Labrador Retrievers were first recognized by the Kennel Club of England in 1903 and American Kennel Club in 1917. At that time, all were black. It was not until 1929 that the first yellow stud dog hit the AKC Books. Black is the dominant color and therefore has the most genetic variability amongst the breeding pairs.

Point #3

Color sometimes influences price

People looking for black pointing labs for sale tend to be die-hard lab people. What do I mean by that? They tend to be the guys and gals that worship at the altar of Ducks Unlimited. Hard core AKC field trial participants. The Duck Commanders and their staff.

These people, like Henry Ford tend to subscribe to the fact that labs, like cars, should be BLACK.

This however has an affect on the price. Black pointing labs – simply due to higher volume and lesser demand – tend to sell far more slowly than the other colors and sexes. It is for this reason that you will tend to see some price differences in the market place.

Here at HPK – we feel the same effort and work goes into each puppy – therefore our prices rarely fluctuate because of color.

“Hunters Point Kennel is great! They worked with me every step of the way and helped us find an amazing chocolate pointing lab that makes a great hunting companion, and a great dog my family and I love! I would highly recommend them to anyone.”

– James B.

Reasons to consider a black pointing lab

Here are some reasons why people prefer black pointing lab puppies as learned in the selection process:

  • Black Stands out in the background. I will be able to see the dog better.
  • Black blends in with the background. The dog won’t stand out.
  • I can see the black fur on the carpet, I know when to vacuum
  • I hunt ducks. I live in the Southeastern US. There is only one color of lab.
  • I have a black truck and a black motorcycle.
  • The only way my wife agreed to let me have a dog is if it was black.
  • I love the way they look.
  • They blend in better in a duck blind, or laying in corn stalks.
  • They were cheaper in price

This list can stretch for days. From the kennels perspective, there is an unending list of reasons clients select black pointing labs over yellow or chocolate. At the end of the day the important thing to remember is: our dogs hunt. Every one of them. Get what color you like best.
