Looks like a long hair to me. Ear floofies make it more likely.

Breeder says he will probably be thick stick coat as none of the generations on either side have long coats. I have nothing against long coats at all but I train in ipo and would hopefully try get to ipo3/sch3 and kk1 . Bit nervous has long coat working dogs are not popular at all

Long stock coat. I'm surprised that your breeder doesn't know that, since at 16 weeks it's very clear, and should have been apparent much, much younger.

I wouldn't worry about "popularity", longcoats pop up in working line litters all the time. This is mine - Halo:



At 9 weeks old, right before we got her:



You can already see the longer hair in and around her ears, which is a dead giveaway that she's a coatie. Both her parents are stock coats, but they carry the recessive gene for coats.

Your pups coat length will have no impact on your goals. Long coats can be shown in the SV system, they have their own class and there is no reason (coat related) you can't achieve your goals.

Nice looking puppy! Good luck with everything!
