I have a white toy and a black standard. When I first started looking for a standard puppy I wanted white or cream but my husband suggested black because of how hard it was to keep Toby 'white' in the face and feet after he's played. I have to say that the black is way easier a quick brush and just picking eye gunk out of his eyes insted of getting the cotton ball buying the eye wash and working on the white ones face for 5 minutes. Toby (the toys) face really only looks great for about a week after the groomer grooms him, BUT to me whites are very regal looking and so pretty I'm not going to say they are prettier because I have really fallen in love with my black...so hard choice good luck!

Where I live, I would say black is the most popular colour for standards.

I would say here in my area Black standards are the norm. In fact I only have two spo clients out of all my others that are not black. You see the occasional brown (only one that I know of in the area) and the cream sometimes. We've had one red spoo in but they were tourists and don't live here.

For some reason in mini's and toys apricot seems to be the most common???

Personaly I think every poodle should be silver or maybe white so it can be any color you wish... Hahaha... Thats just me though, lol, gues it's obvious what my favorite is.

I believe that blacks and whites are the most common also. Especially if you are a show home.

Although, in my search for spoos on the net, I have seen every color of the rainbow from several breeders and they are all finding homes but it just seems that you never actually see these dogs. I am sure that nearly all of them are sold to pet homes and the likelihood that you would see them is slim.

Black is my favorite color because it is easier to keep their face clean looking. It's a personal preference. I heard that some show circles prefer a clean crisp white. There are several whites, parti colors, and abstracts on the forum that are absolutely gorgeous!

One thing to keep in mind about poodles is that their color tends to change as they lose their puppy hair. If you are planning to show and color is going to be particularly important, research your breeder and the genetic testing they do for several generations. Even dominant colors can produce several variations.

I am getting a companion puppy, so I'm more concerned about health and temperament. I do think a qualified breeder will help you get the whole package.
