In a book on professional handling, a technique was mentioned in passing for getting dogs in good coat for showing. Basically, the handler's staff wet the dog down in the evening with cold water then put them in kennels in a dark, air conditioned room straight out of the tub for a few weeks. Soaking dog, dark cold room... the theory is it forces them to build their coat.
Would I do that? NOPE. But sending my dog north sounds like a great idea instead! :P
