Are there any health issues with charcoal labs?

In addition to follicular dysplasia, charcoal Labs can be susceptible to all other known health issues associated with the purebred Labrador retriever breed lines. The Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) recommends that breeders test all parent dogs for hip and elbow dysplasia, eye issues, exercise-induced collapse and D Locus (dilute) DNA.

Why does my yellow lab have a charcoal coat?

This gene is a recessive gene, which means that both parent dogs must contribute a copy in order for a puppy to pop out with the charcoal coat color. Experienced breeders of show (yellow, black, chocolate) Labs that are well-versed in dog breed genetics can control against the dilute gene in future litters of puppies.

What kind of brush do you need to train a charcoal lab?

You will want to invest in a slicker brush as well as a pin and bristle brush for frequent de-shedding and brushing sessions. This will help keep coat shedding cleanup duties manageable. The biggest determinant of how easy your charcoal Lab is to train is which line (working or show) your dog has been bred from.
