I've heard people on this site talk about long stock coats and stock coats and i was wondering what is the differents between the two?
Quote: She's a plush coat? I would have thought long hair. It looks like she has feathering? I've always read feathering = long hair. But then I can't see all of her in the picture lol.
Um my dog is TOTAL working lines AND a long coat.Originally Posted By: shepherd11112My dog has some working line dogs in her background so it makes sense that she has a original stock coat/working coat.
What's the reason for longer coats in the show ring?
"Plush" is not a coat type - it is simply a euphemism that people use when describing a long stock coat - or sometimes it is used on a very long "normal" stock coat (no ear fringe, feathers on legs, bushy tail or bloomers!)Originally Posted By: FourDogsRuleIvy is a plush coat.
Here is a picture of her when she was 8 weeks.
I will have to find a decent one of her so I can show what she looks like now.
