3/14/05 Usually a breeder will know the coat type by approximately 3 weeks of age. When a long coat is bred to a long coat they generally produce all long coats. You would surely know without a doubt the coat type at 6 weeks of age. Sometimes when you breed a long to a short, the coat can appear to be a little longer on the smooth coat especially around the neck area. Many people refer to this as a rough coat, but are still techinally a smooth coat. I hope this helps... Vicky
