Can someone help me tell coat length

Hello! I am looking to get a puppy and want to make sure I can trust my breeder when he tells me that this puppy will be long haired. He is currently 6 weeks here and didn’t know if someone could help me confirm or deny? Thanks so much!

I’d say that’s a long coat puppy. Any particular reason you think your breeder would lie to you?

If you don't trust your breeder, why are you buying from them?

I would say that is a coatie.

Do realize that a coatie can be silky with just a little feathering ranging to a full Collie like coat and anything in between as an adult.

If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand you’re hanging on to your dog’s body because you’ve lost his mind!

Aww, what a cutie. Can't tell you for sure but I think does look long haired(non-educated opinion). What do the parents look like? That should give you an idea. As others said. If you think the breeder is lying to you, it may be best to reconsider and look for another breeder.

I trust this one. I had a previous litter that took all the wrong turns and just made me skeptical. Have loved this one ever since I met him and just being a first time owner, didn’t have anything to go off of in comparison and due to history, just wanted second opinion also mom is short coat

That by itself doesn't mean anything. We're on coatie #4 and all of them have been from two stock coated parents. As long as both parents carry the recessive gene they're capable of producing long coats.
