|Everyone has done a very good job at explaining the "red" issue. You are correct in that they are quite stunning. Sunscreen (made for dogs) can help protect the color from washing out in the sun...to some extent.
My Standard Poodle breeder is in Canada and specializes in silver, blue, and creams. She produces AKC and Canadian Champions as well as performance titled champs. Chocolate Spoodles tend to be bred specifically for hunting...rarely show.
I wish Parti Poodles were allowed to show. And I wish you could show a poodle in several different clips.
I do think it's easier to show different colors in Canada...US judges (from what I've seen) don't favor silvers, blues, or creams...just black and white...so it can force breeders to "color" their dogs hair in order to place. I hate that!
