Want to learn more about Coat Colors?

You’ve come to the right place!

You’ll find an introduction to color genetics and of course lots of facts and details all the different coat colors, markings and patterns.

Want to know something about me? I’m a biologist and an absolute dog nerd that adores Border Collie.

So naturally, I developed a fascination for dog coat color genetics. Here I try to build a resource that makes color genetics and all the science stuff that goes with it interesting and easy to understand for everyone.

Although I have a degree in biology I’m actually not a research scientist. I just do my best to keep up with all the exciting news in the world of color genetics and try to make it available for everyone. If you spot anything that’s out of date or want to provide information or image submissions you’ll find me at hello@coatsandcolors.com.
