Ive shared this pic on the forum many times.... but seriously, nothing but the rake has gotten me these results - at least for Tildens coat type.
Great pic. She looks pleased, like, " look what I helped make".

More hair comes off of him during grooming but the cool thing about it is that the hair pretty much stays on him until then. Where as Keystone, my stock coat, sheds all over.

So honestly the long coat is easier for me.

This has been my experience with my long haired GSD and my Collies. They rarely shed throughout the house, not like the short haired GSDs. You had to brush them to get the hair off.

Not only that they don't grow as heavy a coat as the short haired dogs. Couple that with the natural hair growth cycle which is grow, rest, and shed and this is gold as the growth stage lasts for months compared to that of a short haired dog. SOOOOO much less shedding with the really long, thick coated dogs.

Time itself is a very powerful component of learning. So learn to wait. Learn to forgive. Learn to backup. It's all necessary for learning.

Teach! Teach! Teach! Be fair to your dog!
