Never heard of dog color run at all. Could it been that the hair of yr poodle had been dye from brown to red. Same as our hair when we dyed , the hair color is very vibrant and after many wash, it become lighter and lighter.
Well, it is just a thought..

colour fading is commonplace and inevitable as one ages -- it is the rate of colur fading that differs from dog to dog....depending on the gentic make-up n nutrition...

Your pup is oni 5 months old...wait a while longer like he is about 1 year old then try feeding omega 3 / fish oil / flaxseed oil to your poodle...it helps but u got to be patient

Seaweed would be better than fish oil in darkening the colour of the hair. It has many compounds that support the thyroid system and the blood, helping to keep the hair pigment dark and nourish the body.

But don't just take my word for it, this is my dog's hair at 1 years old and 4 years old. Almost looks like a different dog:



I've tried fish oil before, it's shiny yes but not really dark.

You know, this is quite interesting.... many red poodle owners say that their dog's colour fades... To be honest, I wonder if the petshops may have indeed dyed the hair coz red poodles are definitely popular Hmmm...lol!

For me, I rely on fish oil esp the liquid form one --- there is a time I switched to the tablet form and MT's dark gorgeous coat faded -- it faded so much that it is noticeable to people that my dark fur ST is ageing .... then I switched back to fish/flaxseed oil in liquid form namely velcote n the colour returned....

No, of course not. It will only darken the natural pigment of the hair, making the colour more rich. It won't change the colour

You can try the Velcote that Blue mentioned. For me, I'm currently using Seameal from Solid Gold. Both are available at petshops.
