You will only get long coats if the stock coated parent carries the long coat recessive. If not then all of the pups will be stock coats that carry the long coat recessive.
50 % of the genes come from each parent, but you will often see a greater influence from one parent or the other depending on how the genes combine, recessives and dominants, etc. Best to read up on genetics and breeding for a more complete and better understand of what is involved. The female does have a huge part in determining the temperament of the puppies since she is the first thing they imprint on for their first 7-8 weeks of life.
