Default Puppy coat/adult coat

When does the puppy coat start changing into the adult coat? I love the fluffy puppy coat but just wondering.

My boy's coat "matured" at about four months old.

Sinister started getting his shiny slick adult coat around 13 weeks. It started as a small stripe down his back and tail. Now he is 16 weeks and has very little puppy fluff.
My other German Athena was a long coat so she got her adult coat a little later than him.

3 or 4 months. Otto started with the chevron on his tail. I wasn't expecting that and thought the kids spilled food on him. LOL I tried to clean it off.

Venus started down her back. After her face came in adult fur, she had the cutest little poof of puppy fur on the top of her head for like a month. We still call her Poofie because of it.

I first noticed the coarse strip of adult hair on Stormie's back at 11 weeks.
