    Another reason why electronic collars now dominate retriever training. I'll stick with dogs that obey when I raise my voice and don't require electro-shock therapy for routine obedience.

    Thanks a ton guys. Really good feedback. I am not too worried about hiding the dog. I think the silver color will be fine. I could always use a blind if it's an issue.

    Does anyone have a reputable breader they are familiar with? I am willing to travel so location won't be an issue.

    i challenge the notion that labs blend in at all.

    That’s not your typical chessie color and most of the yellow labs with fox red in them are hat color as well.

    You know damn well a dark chessie is far more common.Since when is a yellow lab not within breed standards? Lol

    Limits? Of course!

    The straw wasn’t supposed to be part of the pic, it just happened to be there. The point is that color will blend in better than any black dog ever could.

    point not well taken, if it werent for the straw that dog would stick out like a sore thumb, not sure what youre looking at.

    Black dogs dont blend in to shadows? Lol

    A dog who is a marsh grass colored would stick out like a sore thumb as opposed to a black dog? Interesting logic you have there. If we are talking about flooded woods and what not, then sure. However, flooded corn, cattails, marsh grass and fields? He blends in perfectly.

    Not saying that at all, i was just saying that picture shows a yellow dog strongly contrasting brown dirt and saying that it blends in way better than any black dog could. Just thought that was a strange statement.

    Sure, id prefer a yellow dog in cat tails and corn, but in timber I'd prefer a black or brown dog. Thats all.

    I realize the picture wasn’t great. It’s just the last two pics I had of him. Like I said. The straw had nothing to do with the pic. The pic was about his color.

    If I hunted timber predominantly I would have a black dog...maybe. I in general like the look of a dark yellow dog better though.
