What is a SABLE coat?
Sable labradoodle coats have coats represented by dark-tipped hairs on a background of any solid colour, with no particular pattern/location designated for such hairs. Sable is present through the entire body. Phantom is just presented on the face, legs and under the tail.
Puppies that start out as a darker colour but the roots are a lighter / different colour, and slowly as the puppy gets older the roots become the actual colour of the dog.
To be sable, All dogs must be:
kyky at the K locus and
only 1 copy of ay at the A locus.
AY is a dominant gene therefore ay is dominant to at and aw.
