silhouettestable Posted July 24, 2007 Report Share Posted July 24, 2007 How many people have both rough collies and rough-coat BC's and which one do you find harder to groom? How similar are their coat types? The more smoother coated dogs I get the more I'm enjoying not having as much grooming to do. I just spent hours grooming out the loose undercoat on my collie Noah. He didn't seem to shed properly last year and even though I brushed him the undercoat never really got cleaned right out. It's falling out easily now though and I think I just thinned out 2 years worth of undercoat Now he only looks about half as wide as he did before. With my 2 new BC puppies Rain and Storm, judging by their puppy fur I thought I was going to have one smooth coat and one either medium or long. Storm was really fluffy but now that fluff is thinning out and he seems to be getting in a very fine silky hair but still fluffy around the ears. Their mom had a medium coat, and I was told their dad did too, so I'm hoping that Storm won't end up too hairy. I like the look of the longer coat, it's just more work.
