Now with Chessie's it seems to me that the males are going quicker than the females. (No idea if color makes a difference.) I went through a lengthy search with a couple of litters not taking and there were always more deposits on male pups. I guess I am part of the problem as I was looking for a male. Mostly because the wife's pound puppy is a female. Better house dynamic with one of each, IMHO.
But yeah, I could really see color making a bigger difference for those not into the dog games. Lots of wife and kid input with those buyers.
I had a person contact me about a yellow female puppy. I sent him a picture per his request. The reply was that "his family" (i.e. his wife and daughter) would prefer a lighter shade of yellow!
I guess all of the time and effort taken to breed healthy talented puppies is wasted on some people.
Just a thought...it seems like there are more black lab litters out there to buy. I just bought a dog in February and when I was looking I could find a black all day long. I wanted a yellow, don't know why I just did.
So maybe they're not harder to sell, but there's just a bigger pool to choose from???? Who knows...
Black males are usually the hardest. Pet people never want them. What's the number one call for me right now? BLACK MALES. Go figure. My homes looking for competition pups could care less. Good thing. I'm doing a By to By breeding. I could end up with thousands of combos!
Quite honestly, I sell my blacks before the yellows sell. I prefer black and usually do breedings where either all the pups will be black or maybe might have a token yellow. The pups are usually sold before they are 2 weeks old.
Maybe it's the area you are in?

It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

I board dogs for a living, and I see very, very few pet labradors that are black. Almost everyone wants yellow or chocolate.
