How can you tell what the adult coat is going to be like? What age before 8 weeks does it show if wavy, straight or tight curly?
Would be interesting to see if colour plays a part.I know with working bred cockers there seem to be two fairly distinct coat types, a short and silky coat, and a much denser woolly coat. So perhaps that could contribute to the coat type in a cockapoo? Maybe if you look at the parents and grandparents that *might* help give an idea.
I've only seen the denser woolly coat on pretty much solid black and liver coloured dogs, not on any roaned dogs. So I'm now pondering whether the coat *type* could be linked to colour, hmmmmmm. Might have to look into that a bit more when I have time.
Of course not. When I am at my PC I will post puppy and now pics xxIts hard to decribe and cos my picture posting is rubbish I cant help my self out with pics. Wilfs coat was wavey as a really young pup but his coat was thick, he is now really curly and got curlier with age, Mables coat was straighter a little pup it did have a wave its now fluffy and wavey but not as thick as Wilfs more like hair than fur ... if that makes sense and she does loose some of the white hairs.
