Default Questions about Labs

I have 2.5 year old female chocolate lab that will have her third cycle in late March, I'm looking for a CKC lab to breed her with. Is it better to breed her with a black, chocolate, or yellow lab.

Black is the dominant gene. If you can find a chocolate from an all chocolate litter you have more chance of chocolate pups. I had a chocolate male that always had black pups. I have a large chocolate male now if you need a sire.

Chocolate should give you the best chance if you're wanting chocolates. Ideally a chocolate from 2 chocolate parents.

this is a funny question to me. i understand dominant genes and all of everyones theories but we use to breed labs. we has a black female and she had 3 different males that we bred to over 4 breeding. we had a sire lined up the third time because all she had ever thrown off was black puppies. well this guy guaranteed a chocolate puppy. we bred to it twice and all we ever got was a black puppy. needless to say he was astounded. she had 43 black puppies over her time. then we had a ,ale chocolate that we bred to our neighbors yellow lab and every littler we had there would be almost an equal mixture of black, yellow, and chocolates. sorry, i do not have answer for you about it though.

Your black female probably had Black/Black (BB) as genotype.

That means (with haploid division) that each of her eggs already had one dominant black gene (B) that would over ride any other gene the male brought to the table.

Thanks for the replies, she is AKC not CKC. Is it better to breed her to a AKC sire vs CKC sire? I don't really know a whole lot about the dog breeding, I want to let her have a litter then get her fixed and keep another female. We lost our Rotty and was givingthe labby my cousin. They allowed their black lab to breed her on her first cycle, she had 9 puppies (4 black, 3 yellow, and 2 choc). I would like to find a lab around her size, not the big jar headed labs.

Her parents are:

Sire: Mikey's Special dark Chocolate SR34350401 03-08

Dam: Kiana & Makaio's Cocoa SN90202810 03-08

I don't know if any of this means anything

Send Big Blue a note. He's got some great stud labs and likes to live vicariously through them since he's been neutered for years.

I can't remeber if Gator is AKC or CKC...I believe AKC. I got him from a breeder in South Florida. He's a big boy and I'd be scared fer him since he's not familiar w/ the female side of his breedoke:letsdrink He turned 2 this last January. If you just do a search of Gator and my screen name you'll see some pics and all. There have been a few members that have met my monster too. I gotta look fer his paperwork, the ole lady put it somewhere...:letsdrink

I would suggest breeding with a chocolate stud. You will have a better chance of having chocolate puppies. I have 2 studs (see pics), the chocolate is an awesome dog, he is calm(always has been, even as a puppy) smart, but also active. He is about 80lbs, and the white stud is 100lbs(although they have the same daddy and their moms were sisters) If you would like to come over and check themout, that would be great, I'll hook you up with a good "Forum Dicount" on the stud fee!

CKC is the lesser of the 2 clubs, ckc will accept and akc lab but....akc will not accept ckc. ckc will let you set up a lab family with pictures/witness alone I think. Ckc was created to make it easy on "backyard breeders, puppy mills" etc.. to get documents. The best genetic labs will come with contracts that do not allow you to breed them (ever), they say you should not breed a lab unless you show/trial the dog and he is of champion blood with titles. Im sure if you have searched breeding labs you have read all this though...I tried to breed mine a few months back which did not work, and it may or may not be all that easy, plus a buddy of mine almost lost his dog a few weeks ago in a bad pregnancy...I have her fixed now. In the end ckc pups sell for much less that akc pups, and there is plenty of puppymills,backyard breeders, etc... in AKC....You need to get all the clearances certeither way before you breed (hips, eyes,cancers etc...), and don't forget the male needs it all too.
