Forum Rules
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.

Hard to tell with these pictures. Pictures standing up and not partially covered by someone's arms would help. From what I can currently see I would say standard coat. Maybe a bit more plush than mom but not a wooly. A good coat rake is a great all around tool for whatever the hair type. Woolys you really need to keep up with the grooming. Don't fall behind on grooming them. A good wind can turn them into a matted mess.

Groomer here, I agree with Jenn, definitely looks more standard than wooly but will have a substantial undercoat. You'll need to invest in an undercoat rake (the Paws Pamper version medium to large 13 blade), a greyhound comb, and a slicker brush to keep his coat tip top. Behavior wise huskies can be a handful so you HAVE to train them will their young or they will walk all over you. They are incredibly smart so you have to be firm so they view you as pack leader. You also need to socialize them A LOT! If this is all new to you I suggest some puppy classes to get you both started on the right paw (see what I did there). Good luck!

We're also looking for a better rake/ brush. Was going to suggest getting an undercoat rake but one with longer pins because of the denser/ deeper undercoat.

@FURgirl - the PawsPamper version was suggested to me by a groomer at a self-wash the other day. They also mentioned the longer pinned rake.

The PawsPamper blades don't seem very long (in the picture I saw). Are they long enough to get deep into a thicker undercoat? Our male has a very dense undercoat on his butt and back end. Also on his neck.

I picked up an undercoat rake when Ami's coat itself s wooly. Just a generic one Walmart. I've been very happy with it.

Ive actually found the best thing to use on the undercoat is a metal mane comb (yes as in for horses)
