A coat that is to soft to hand strip

Post  Sivok on Tue Mar 16, 2010 2:07 am

Are there Schnauzer's that are born that there coats are to soft to hand strip? If so why is this and is there anything that can be done to help this? If not is there anyway to harden a soft "puppy coat"

Thanks a million!!!!

I have seen at least one coat that was way too soft. The only "cure" is to keep stripping and stripping. I would NOT attempt rolling a too-soft coat; it should be stripped down to skin. I also would not make the determination of "too soft" when looking at a young puppy. I thought Cruise's coat was going to be too soft, too (after comparing to one of his brothers), yet once Cruise matured, his coat was beautiful. Still not as hard as his brother's, whose coat was exceptional, but it is still a very good coat.
