Double-Coated Coats

The most common double-coated dogs are Australia Shedherd, Labrador, Shiba Inu, Shetland sheepdogs and Pomeranians. 

A double coat on a dog refers to two layers (or types) of the coat. Australian Shepherds, for example, have a medium length outer coat that is silky and soft and sheds dirt and water. Underneath that outer coat, they have a shorter, fuzzy undercoat. This coat protects the dog in bad weather or from briars and brambles.

All double-coated dogs need regular brushing that goes through the undercoat to the skin. Without brushing, this undercoat can tangle and form mats. Most double-coated dogs also need their undercoat to be pulled out as the dog is brushed as it can get stuck and cause more tangles and mats.
