Breeders...Question on Puppy Coats

Quick question.... I'm getting really worried & stressed out that people are going to be disappointed in the coats of Daisy's F1 pups. Everyone wants a fluffy fleece coat and I am extremely honest and upfront with every little thing. I've even told some people that I think they should get an F1B or a multi gen instead of an F1. I would rather they be totally happy with a dog from another breeder than unhappy with one of mine. On some of these pups, you can see a slight wave or ripple of hair, and even the "stripe" down the back that has been mentioned before. Is that a sign that it will be more of a fleece coat or is there no way to tell at this point? At 4 weeks are you able to tell the coat type better? That is when I'm having people come and pick out their specific puppy so I'm hoping they will be able to tell. Help! A stressed out breeder!! :?

maureen well said!!

i am not a breeder but help other breeders socialize puppies. mostly doodles but other kinds too. It seems the older the puppy gets the more developed a coat is.For me though, i may have wanted a certain coat, i just wish more prospective doodle parents would base solely on Temperament first then coat and/or color.

Max has a hair coat and looked mostly labby witha wavy ridge down his back. Now he has the scruffy benji look and barely sheds.

Peanut we'll see as she is a goldendoodle that had wavy fur and now is turning a shaggy look.

we have bad allergies but so far as long as i sweep daily we are fine. The son with asthma is a OK with both doodles!
