Our guy is losing his fuzzy puppy fur and his back is becoming really wavy. Iím also seeing the color change starting as well. Waiting for the day he does need to kill the brush before I brush him!

My dog is 19 months and almost felt like a plush at that age. His fur is still very soft. He has coarse guard hair down his back but not as course as others I have know. He doesn't seem to blow too much loose hair on a daily basis (compared to what they are capable of) ..he gets stuck short tufts ALL OVER when he is blowing his coat (that are very fun and gratifying to pluck while watching tv on the couch lol) then he goes back to velvety. His coat seems to be stock length, He has a bit of a neck ruff thing going on though. Diet definitely plays a part. I feed raw which may make him particularly velvety. IDK, most people their dogs became much softer to the touch when switched to raw. I'm sure quality kibble makes them glossy too

Valor is super handsome! I hope my puppies coat stays like his! I donít feed purely raw, but I do feed a local kibble topped with fresh raw foods. I also have limited experience with GSDs, and am not sure how a plush coat feels but his is very soft, even on his back.

Yes as he gets older he will get his adult coat which is much more course and a better insulator thanhis current soft puppy fur
