    DefaultField or Show bred?

    Hi

    Does my lab look field bred, show bred, or pet bred?

    Thanks

    Your labby is a cutie pie, and is what is called a Dudley. It is a yellow lab with chocolate genes.

    He looks very cute. He looks like a field bred dog to me, but I am not an expert. I just have my two English labs (from the show side of the fence). They are built for comfort not for speed. hee hee.

    He looks like a pet quality, field bred lab to me and a very happy one also! (I am not an expert by any strech of the imagination, that is just my opinion! )

    If you have to ask, it's more than likely pet bred. NOT a dudley at all. A dudley has chocolate (or pink) eye rims and lips besides their nose.... this dog has snow nose, but normal black pigment on it's lips and eye rims.

    Well, I figured that he's probably not show bred since he doesn't have the signature blocky shaped head and humungous paws. Plus I read somewhere that the show kind are more mellow. Mine NEVER gets tired and I live in an apartment. YIKES!

    A dudley can also have brown around the eyes, and brownish light colored noses. Snow noses usually happen in cold weather and in aging dogs.

    Honestly, it's hard to say from those pictures. The main thing is that he's happy and healthy.
    As an aside, a yellow with the chocolate gene won't have any black pigment anywhere. The one on the left in my signature is one (he is from field lines)

    He looks pet bred to me. He's a good looking boy!

    How much exercise are you giving him? Labs are fine in apartments if you commit to getting him out for regular exercise.

    This dog is black around the eyes, so again nothing to due with Dudley. Snow nose is actually a horrible name as its the lack of daylight that triggers it, not temperature. Intensity of pigment is genetic....some lines have noses that lighten early on and stay that way while some lines have jet black noses well into their later years.
