1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi there,
Would anyone know if it is normal that our pups are not blowing their coats? Our four year old has started blowing his but neither of our pups (7 & 9) are showing any signs. We brush the pups very regularly would that be the reason maybe? Our older one was a rescue and he was very matted so we were unable to groom him properly so his undercoat is pretty thick.

I don't think they blow their coats until they get their adult coat in, at 7 and 9 months they still have mostly a puppy coat as far as i know. Rusty has just started blowing his for the first time and he's 15 months old.

They'll typically miss the first one, maybe two, in their first year before a full on coat blow.

Mishka blew his coat early. He was almost 10 months when he started blowing his coat. We also live in a hotter climate so that may be a contributing factor.
