If a pup that shows promise for the sport and it is a good match for the owner and happens to be the color you want that is great. When I was looking at the litter I got my pup from there were two that were the best match for me, one was black and one sable. I LOVE the sables and because I had the two to choose from I picked the sable but if the black was the only match for me he would have been my choice. Color is the least of your worries when buying a pup for schutzhund.

But I will only place dogs that are appropriate for the person, drive and personality wise.
I tell them what I have available that fits them and if the color/markings isn't what they prefer I understand.

The good and the bad: He is strongminded, loving, impatient, kissy, intense, funny, powerful, pushy, smart, reactive, social, and settles well in the house. Medium energy, medium drives. Happy upbeat guy to live with, deeply intuitive (really), who however can be overenthusiastic/impatient/reactive.
