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.

Hi,
I watched some dog show clips and their dogs' wools are shiny and very nice... and they said they feed good food for them to make nice hairs...

I feed Taste of the wild to my puppy which has pretty good amount of Omega 3 and 6.

What else I should do for my puppy's nice wool or hair?

Coat comes from many different factors... Breeding, maintenance, and nutrition are all key.

Some dogs just have very flat or thinner coats. Melissa's Kody has a very flat coat compared to my Mishka who has a fuller plushier coat. My Aussie, Ewe, also lacks coat. There are supplements to add which supposedly help to aid coat growth (I'm trying one now, inflight, for my Aussie) but in the end they can only get as "nice" of a coat as they're genetically able to.

Puppies go through a lot of changes with their coats and usually you won't see what they're real potential is until after their first blow.

Healthy coat does come from within, and TOTW is a very good food it's what I feed my kennel. But as mentioned, breeding does play a pretty significant factor as well. Puppy coat is very different than adult coat, and will feel softer to the touch. The adult coat should have a coarseness to it.

My female is silky and incredibly soft, which is unnatural for our breed, but it has always been this way. My male has course guard hairs, to protect his coat and full undercoat.

Two different dogs and two different coats...and they eat the same things. Genetics! Smile
