Question Favorite color/patterns?

My favorite color of Standard poodle is dark red. But I just got into poodles this year so I am a newbie. All I know color wise is brown white black apricot and red. I know there are lots of other shades and patterns out there so I want to hear what your favorites are. Please include a picture along with the post.

Welcome Raiko. Good to have you here.

I don't really have a favorite color. I own two spoos, one blue and one apricot. For me, it is more about personality and form. But if I had to choose a color that I find really interesting just for color sake, I would go for the partis.

From website:
A Parti Standard Poodle is not a mismarked poodle or a Standard Poodle that likes to party poodle, although I'm sure they would enjoy a good party! They are actually Poodles that are more than one color, such a black and white, brown and white, or the rarer, lemon and white.
A mismarked Poodle is usually recognized as being mostly all one solid color with just a little color somewhere else, which is usually white. In the Parti colored Poodle, the color distribution is preferably 60% white and 40% of another color.

Aww, he is gorgeous, reminds me of Elvis.

To me it's about the total poodle, not just a color. But, all things being equal I prefer white/creams, apricots, reds, silvers. As far as parti poodles go, it's a tuxedo party, either black and white or silver and white.

As far as colors go, i prefer a nice red/apricot, then black, then silver, then cream/white.* I am not a big fan of mismarked poodles (parti, phantom, etc.), but i have seen some nice partis.*

Well I swore I was going to have a parti this year but then I decided I liked silvers better and was going to have a silver but no matter what colour it was going to have a full undocked tail.
Well life changed and I am going from 3 acres of backyard to a brand new townhouse so guess I wont have any more then the 2 spoos I have already.
Oh well I can dream and maybe some day someone will drop one in my lap. My guys are just about 2 now and are becoming really nice DOGS right now so i am not going to complain and perhaps I can convert more people to be spoo lovers in our new area and live colours through them

I like all colors but I am partial to Parti colors and Phantoms.

Levi is a superb example of a Standard Parti

I think each color has its advantages and disadvantages. I could see owning a poodle in almost any color.

Black: I don't think anything is as noble and majestic as an inky black Standard Poodle. Not so pretty if they grey out. They get hot in the sun.

Cream/White: I love the way good black pigment sets off their expression. A well groomed cream/white is the epitome of fancy and stylish. White show coat is hard to keep clean if you are an active owner.

Brown: Is anything as gorgeous as a deep mahogany brown poodle? Now the $64,000 question.... will that color hold? I personally don't care for the greyed out Cafes. Silver Beige can be stunning if they go very light. Also, as I'm finding out, brown show coat bleaches very quickly to an ugly orange if you are outside and active with your dog a lot.

Silver: Platinum is stunning with many advantages of the cream/white but in another color option. The clearing process can take a long time and I don't care for the way some silvers in show coat get brown in their coats from sun exposure.

Blue: A true blue is a lovely gun metal grey color. Beautiful! Unfortunately, too many people call their faded and grizzled bad blacks "blues". This is a disservice to the blue color.

Apricot: Wonderful color as puppies but the color rarely holds. At best they fade to a buttery, dark cream. At worst, they take on a dingy beige color that I don't care for.

Red: Stunning. Even if it fades it usually becomes a pretty apricot color. Some Reds turn a paper-bag brown color as they age, but I don't mind it too much. I saw a red Mini once who was orangoutang orange...just too much color for me.

I do not care for Partis, Phantoms, Sables or Brindles. I really dislike the cat-track ticking on many Partis and more often than not, the patterns make a dog look uneven and unbalanced. Phantom patterning just looks weird to me on a coated breed like a poodle. Sables and Brindles? They just look muddled and dirty to me.

My favourite colours are black and white. I do not like partis because they look like strange Portuguese Water Dogs to me, and phantoms...I find them very unappealing looking. But to each their own.

I honestly don't have a favorite. I think if it's a well bred Poodle, it looks great in any color. Up until the last few years, they only paris I had seen, were poorly bred toys, so I didn't think much of the color. Seeing some of the nice partis, really changed my mind though. When you look around the net and on sites like this and see all the pretty poodles in all different colors, it's impossible to pick a favorite. I guess I want one of each, LOL! If I had to choose, I'd say I want my first to be white, then I could color her/him!
