Color has nothing to do with a dogs temperament. This is "old school" Thinking. Back in the day they said white gsd had bad temperaments and where aggressive....It all depends on how the dog is bred. People have color prejudices within every bred. Most said cream or white and black because these dogs win in the ring which makes them the most popular.I am looking for some answers lol, there is another dog forum I go on but not breed specific. There are a few poodle owners on there who obviously enjoy talking poodles.
There was a thread not too long ago about someone sourcing a puppy, they were looking for a cream or white (I can't remember). One of the poodle owners on there said creams (or whites) was a good choice, along with blacks as the other colours (chocs mentioned) were a bit 'silly'.
So, I was wondering if those of you who have experience of different colours agree with this? Is there any difference between colours with regards to trainability, temperament etc... What about the phantoms and partis?
I know with labradors, in the UK certainly, you don't see many if any chocolate labs working as guide dogs or as gundogs. This (apparantly) is due to them not being as easy to train as goldens and blacks.
So poodle peeps what do you think? (I hope it's all a load of tosh as I really want a brown mini one day...)
I have a red standard poodle which is a Rare color and there is nothing wrong with his temperament. It is said that reds are hyper... After seeing other poodles in the ring he acts just like the black ones. Its all BS really when people tell you one color is better than another.
