dh has always had black and yellow ones and doesnt have any experience with choc ones. We have been to see one but he is worried that a lot of peeps have said they are scatty. This one is only 13 weeks old and tbh I was expecting lunacy which is not what we found. She was of course excitable but not excessively and she did sit and wait and she didnt bark. Can someone reassure us?
lol they say the black ones are the most intelligent followed by the yellow then the chocolate. we even rang the vet to ask opinions there. Thanks ladies for your input. DH would like her as a gun dog ideally
we have a choc and a black. i've heard that old chestnut too - in fact a woman stopped me walking them a month or two ago and asked me if there was a difference in temperament (are you she?!) no difference save the usual - bitches harder to toilet train. choc was a bit chewier (people) but black was whinier and ate my kitchen cupboard. choc got detention at puppy class for refusing to 'stay' but weirdly, if you use 'wait' instead of 'stay' she has no issues... we looove them both. i just need a yellow to complete the trio but dh says no <sulk> very jealous.
actually we have decided not to go with her as dh really wants a black lab gundog and has been put off by friends and dog trainer he works with. Boo. We are going to wait for a black dog lab to come along me thinks
aw. hope she finds a home soon. (my black dog is my fave, i do admit don't tell the dcs, i've spent a year telling them they aren't allowed to have favourites as it's not fair on the dogs...) rofl at put off by the dog trainer - hope it wasn't after brown dog went to the class!
lol fossa - she has run to fat very quickly despite getting as much exercise as the black dog and less grub as she's smaller... i had put it down to general lab hoovering tendency and being slightly older than him (or just being a fat lass), but she's on a rigid diet and exercise routine at the mo! i love looking for puppies
