Abstract

HOW WE PREDICT PUPPY COLOURS

  • Through DNA testing, a breeder is able to determine a dog's genetic colour code (genotype).  The genotype is noted on our Moms and Dads pages in their colour trait reports.

  • When you know a dog's genotype you can use the linked chart to determine the possible phenotypes (colours to be expected) for each litter.

  • There are 9 genotypes, 3 phenotypes (cream, brown, black) and 2 nose colours (brown, black).
