How can you tell? And at what age does the adult coat come in? My 3 month old's coat has started to change and I was wondering if her coats coming in. She's been shedding a lot lately and along her spine the fur is flatter against her back and isn't as soft as the rear of her fur.

Her adult coat is coming in, it is just starting. Her coat should be fully in between 4 months and 4 1/2 depending on your dog :)

With my dogs (both coaties), I started seeing the adult coat come in at around 4 to 4-1/2 months old - first with a stripe of longer, wavier hair along the back, and then spreading to the rest of the body over the next few months. I don't recall exactly how long that took, and it may be different with a regular stock coat, but I haven't had one in so long.
