    14 weeks old, wavy hair?

    rocky's hair along the top of his back is growing in very wavy, do you think that will straighten out as he gets bigger?

    It could, but wavy hair on his back is a flaw. Who did you buy him from?

    I would not necessarily say it was a fault. Will the fur comb out flat? I know of many CH that have a few waves. 14 wks he is starting to shed for spring and starting to get big dog fur. Keep combing (furmanator) and train it to lay flat.

    I too use the furminator. I didn't over the winter but I am starting to use it now along with brushing more frequently so he starts letting go of his thick winter coat.

    When King was young, (about 3 or 4 mo. old) his fur was starting to get wavy and long too. Right before a year old, it went straight without combing or anything. I didnt but him from a breeder either. I think its probobly just something he'll grow out of, like King did.

    I had the same in my guy, Waves, but he's all straightened out now. Almost like the hair was too long for his body, or he had too much, it had to go somewhere. Nature took care of that in the first 6 months!!!

    Capp, I am using the furminator almost everyday right now. My boy is letting go of his winter coat. Be careful when going over any bones since it could hurt the dog. I pull his neck skin softly and stretch it so I don't hurt him. It works great on the neck back and by the tail. I brush his underside with just a stiff bristled brush. The furminator really pulls out the undercoat.
