Question How long for full coat?

How long does it usually take for a full coat to grow out? And whats the average lenght of hair once it has reached fullness?

Thanks!
Ryan

Kodi's hair never looks long. I think because it is so wavy, it looks shorter and he is tall. Shelby has straight hair and is a little shorter, so it looks longer, but it is not to her feet.

I didn't know Gucci was so close to age as Capote..I thought you'd had her longer than that!

Kara.., how long is Guc's hair now??
Beamer is 6.5 months old and his longest hair is just over 5 inches. That would be the hair on his back and sides....

Her hair is about 7 inches long.

Her chest hair is shorter? I'm not sure why. I think I might add a supplement for hair/skin.

Nope, she was 8 months old on the 19th

I don't think there is any pat answer. I have two girls that are two years old, and one has a full-length coat in front, and it is pretty long in the back, but her mid-body is still not full length. The other one is still a young adult look. I'd say that by three years old, you're probably going to get all the length the dog will get in the hair.

Various lines (genetics) seem to have varying length & fullness of coat too. If you've seen Hildago (or is it spelled Hidalgo?), he and all of the puppies of his that I've seen have floor-length coats, even dogs a year or younger. And then again, I've seen a few dogs that seem to have a perpetual puppy cut look to them. Their hair just doesn't get down to the floor.

So, that answer was probably no help at all, was it?

That is interesting info, because I've decided to try growing Biscuit's coat out, at least over the winter.

Kara, Gucci is breathtaking. What beautiful pix!



HAV A GREAT DAY ! ~~AMY & BISCUIT~~

Kimberly, that was a good explanation. That is what I see in my two.
Shelby has some of the Starkette line in her, and that is what she resembles.
Kodi has some Los Perritos and Kimbriels in his lines. I'll have to see if he resembles any of those dogs.
