If your pup does not have a great coat, it will probably not improve with the coat change. If he is a year old and has a cottony coat, that's what you've got. The easiest thing is to keep him trimmed every 6-8 weeks in a shorter teddy or puppy trim (an inch or so all over). Otherwise you can try a variety of products, but it will still be a ton of work.

Have you asked your breeder? There is always a chance that your grooming technique is making a poor coat worse. Your breeder could mentor you in correct grooming techniques that might help and the breeder will also know what products work best on their coats.
