Default Puppy v Adult coat

When does the adult coat come in and how will I know? Sorry if the last bit sounds stupid but want to know what to look for.

Generally around 8 months I think. Your cute, shaggy pup is suddenly a horrible, tangled hair-monster! It's when most seem to decide that a trip to the groomers is overdue

At just over 7 months Oakley's coat was over 3 inches long .... and even though it has been trimmed now, he has his adult coat.

Honey is just over 5 months old and her coat is getting longer now, lovely thick texture but a trim will be needed in the next few months or lots of detangling!!!

Eevee is 3 months old and her coat is changing weekly, she had a very course texture straight coat but now it is growing with a wavy and is totally soft on her head but the body hair still need to get softer, lovely to see her changing so much.. her coat is changing more than the others.

The coat that has been soft and easy to care for suddenly pretty much overnight around 8-10 months will matt and become tangly and sometimes unmanagable,many cockapoos around this age get clipped right back to make it easier.All coats are different,miley my american cockapoo has by far the easiest coat out of my 4 cockapoos,pyper my merle girl from the states only arrived in may age 1 and her coat is a nightmare,very soft and almost like cottonwool,im away to get her clipped short,you ill soon get used to the adult coat though and find out what length of coat you prefer

The groomer that I took Rosie to (who I was VERY pleased with!), only scissored Rosie's body because she described the hair as like cotton wool and said that it is incredibly difficult to get a good cut with clippers when the hair is like that. She thought Rosie's hair was like it because it is her puppy hair; I keep convincing myself that it is going to stay like it - it's soooooo lovely and soft (until she jumps in lakes...).

Remember we want before and after shots if you take the plunge. Perhaps we should start a thread of "Good clip photos" for us to take to the groomers with us. I prefer the coat long but then there's practicality too.

Default Daisys coat

Hi everyone

I was wondering about Daisys coat shes 4 months now and coming on really well.

Her coat is thin and a bit wirey just down her back from her head to her tail and doesnt seem to be thickening up like the rest of her.Do you think this will improve over time or do you think she'll always be like it .

Her hair is darker nearer her skin down this area but it looks as if she has a skin condition but she hasnt of course.
