Re: long stock coat and stock coat

The term stock coat refers to having a double coat, the undercoat and longer outer coat. The normal stock coat is what the majority of shepherds are. Long stock coat refers to a long haired, or coated, german shepherd that still has the undercoat. Some long haired german shepherds lack the undercoat. Inbetween these two is the plush coat.

Re: long stock coat and stock coat

You know how the GSD has longer/thicker fur around the neck? The plush coat is sorta like that, all over. This dog is said to be a plush coat:


But I know some people on the board have plush coat dogs that would be better examples. I'm not entirely sure the above dog is, but it definitely has a longer thicker coat than the common short stock coat.

Re: long stock coat and stock coat

Ivy is a plush coat.

Here is a picture of her when she was 8 weeks.
I will have to find a decent one of her so I can show what she looks like now.

Re: long stock coat and stock coat

She's a plush coat? I would have thought long hair. It looks like she has feathering? I've always read feathering = long hair. But then I can't see all of her in the picture lol.

Re: long stock coat and stock coat

Normal stock coat. If you look at the example I posted, you can see the longer thicker hair around the belly for one. Since its a small picture thats the easiest to see and use to explain. To make things even more confusing, some breeders refer to a working stock coat or show coat. A show coat being longer than the working stock coat, but not as thicker as a plush coat.. The example I posted actually looks more like a "show coat" than a plush coat. The lines between coats are fuzzy and not clear lol. With both type of coat and pattern of coat. What one person calls an extended saddle the next may call a blanket back, or what one calls a blanket back another might call a bi-colour. So with the picture I posted, it was labeled a plush coat but it may be what one calls a regular stock coat.
