I have a 10 year old Bichon. Gosh, its hard to remember that long ago, but her adult coat came in around 9 months, I think. If your puppy is 5 months, I think you'll have a few more months. I do recall that the matting really started when that coat started to change, so be sure that you are grooming regularly.
