    Hello, in this video I explain Coat color inheritance in Labrador Retriever.
    Labrador retrievers have coats of three basic colors: yellow, black, and chocolate. These colors are determined genetically, just like almost all of the traits that offspring get from their parents. The modes of inheritance of these coat colors are autosomal (not related to the sex of the dog).

    You can actually register the brown variety as liver, entirely the choice of the breeder. And, unlike yellows, where there is a description of the range of shades in the breed standard, there hasn't been the same sort of description for liver/chocolate, although there will be (if not already) soon as the breed standard is due to be amended.
