woes of growing a coat out
So I've been growing Ollie's coat out for 14 months now, he's got a slow growing coat. he's also always been an itchy pup, but it seems since his coat length is longer, he's been itchier.
also, when I come home from work everyday, b/c he's playing all day with my other dogs, he usually has an unsightly mat on him, which he didn't have in the morning.
and lastly, I noticed a couple of days ago, he's either chewed some fur off on his side, or something funky, it's pretty short in a patch of his hair one side.
so my question: should I just whack it off and keep him in a puppy coat?
he has a lot of breakage I think from playing with my other dogs (the mouth him, and what not).
all comments welcome. I know don't have a preference for his coat length I just want him to be less itchy.
