Whimsy will be 1 yr. old next month. At what age will they be considered to have their full adult coat?

not sure if she has blown her coat yet or not. I brush and comb her everyday and bathe her every 2 weeks. I am getting a lot of loose hair in the brush, but have avoided matts thus far.

Yogi was between coats until 2, now his coat is a little more course (not puppy fluff) and a whole different colour, it is still very soft. I have heard that it can take up to 3 yrs for some of the more slower growing coats.

I think it varies by dog & line. Mimi's coat was thin & stringy for the longest time. It wasn't until she was 3 that it had finally filled out. Then there are some that have always had a profuse coat like Starla. She just turned a year on Tuesday. She's blowing coat. I'm praying her coat doesn't get any thicker as it already takes 2 hours to blow dry her with a HV dryer! I also think it varies by texture too. I don't think Dulce's coat will be anywhere near as thick as Starla's as hers is more silky and Starla's cottony.
