Chocolate Pointing Labs & Puppies
Rare. Different. Unique.
Quite possibly one of the most fascinating things we get to do as breeders is pointing lab puppy pick-up day.
On these days, families from all over the country travel to our kennel to select their new pointing lab puppy.
During the selection process, many questions are asked both by the clients of us, and us of the clients. At some point during the conversation, the discussion of color will ultimately pup up. Why did you select the color of dog you did? The answers range from “My dad had yellow pointing lab puppies growing up” to “Its hot in Texas, who would own black”.
So – with all these answers it appears necessary to outline some of the basic facts about yellow pointing Labrador retriever puppies and then list several of the many reason folks pick out yellow pointing lab puppies…(some of them are really quite funny).
The intent here is to help you sort through the junk out there and get to the facts about the different colors.
Points to Consider
There are three colors of labrador retreivers
There are three main colors when it comes to retriever / pointing labs, and those colors consist of:
- Yellow – And all its phases.
If you have a chocolate lab with any sort of American Field Champion blood lines you can likely trace one of the pedigree lines to Buccleuch Avon – a dog born in 1855 that sired “liver colored pups”.
Avon had a long history that I won’t detail here, but suffice it to say – chocolate colored lab puppies have been around a long time.
Despite being around for a LONG period of time chocolate lab puppies were not accepted for registry for almost 100 years after Avon whelping.
Chocolate female pointing labs are more popular
Chocolate female pointing lab pups are simply THE most popular color and sex we sell. They have been for the last several years running. Why? Not really sure. But I can tell you that the number of calls we get for chocolate pointing lab female puppies is about 20 for every chocolate female pups we make.
Now that being said– Hunters Point Kennel WILL NOT breed exclusively for color. Our puppies need to be able to perform in the field.
Just like a vehicle – color to me is a paint job. Its icing on the cake. We need to focus on multiple factors in building great pointing labs. Moral of the story: If a chocolate pointing lab female puppy is what you desire:
Get on the list early. 6-7 months in advance helps us a great deal.
Shoot for a take home date of January or July. The slow times in our business tend to be in these two months. It definitely can increase the chances of available puppies.
Wish our momma dogs luck! Hope that they produce the color and sex that we are after.
“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.”
