The breed standard allows spotting to some degree, but “clear white or white with minimal spotting" is preferred. The puppies' coat is often clear white, but as the puppy grows, spots may appear. If the skin is black, it indicates that spots will appear.
continental landseers, work has been done to reduce the amount of spotting.
