Is there a specific age in which the breeder can determine if a puppy will have a long coat? Both the sire and dame are long coated German Shepards. Is 2.5 weeks old too early?

My Sting's breeder tells her clients that when the puppies are 4 weeks old, she can determine for sure which ones will have a long coat. She does not breed a sire and dam that are both long coated.

I have heard the same from breeder regarding 4 weeks old. The picture I have of Rocco at 4 - 5 weeks you could tell he was going to be a long coat.
