My Daisy had a very kinky/cottony nightmare coat as a puppy. I cut her into a short puppy cut, and kept it that way for about a year or so (I can't remember exactly how long now!). Then I corded her for about 9 months, then shaved those off. In one year her coat grew out, down to the floor!! It was a much much better texture (although still a bit frizzy toward her butt) and waaaaaay easier to take care of, once she hit about 2 years old.
Here are some pics so you can see the difference in her coat~
I know that keeping her in a short puppy cut was the best thing for us, and for her! She hates to be groomed!
Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~
