Question Adult Coat?

Hello again!

Thank you to everyone as you are all so heplful! I have one more question please for your assistance. Circuit is now 6 months, and I thought I saw a articale on the inernet and now can't find it so ccorrect me if I'm wrong that I am suppose to shave him down around this time to allow for his adult coat? or due I just let him shed thorugh brushes.

Ps I promise I will be posting pics of my little guy soon.

Thank you
Humma

I wouldn't shave him unless he starts matting really badly. Miley got matts so bad that was the only choice I had. If you can stay ahead of the matts and be faithful about brushing (although the matts appear magically overnight!) then you may be able to avoid the shave-down.
Just my 2 cents....

Renee, Miley, & Copper too!

How true! Or you could get the puppy cut which is easier to maintain.

Even a teddy cut (one step longer than a puppy cut) is way managable compared to full coat. Pixie has been in a teddy clip and it's a breeze to maintain.
