The Double Coat is the natural coat of the entire biological Canid Family and is the dominant coat type of most of the world’s estimated 900 million dogs. Yet it is widely misunderstood, and there is not even agreement as to the correct use of the term “double coat” among groomers. Understanding the genetics, the dermatology, and the proper grooming of this most important of all coat types is critical for all in the pet industry. This visually compelling seminar will make it clear exactly what a double coat is, how it works (and how it does not work), the needs of the skin and coat, how the grooming rules change depending on the length of the double coat, and much more!
