Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I am just wondering what age setters' coat becomes long and feathery. My last setter I had had a georgeous coat but I can't remember what age he was when he developed the featherness. I know every dog will be different but can anyone tell me what the average age for setters' is for their coat to become longer and feathery? My puppy is 8 months old now and I can see his hair growing on his tail and along his spine. Also, is there a time when their coat darkens in colour? I can see dark hair showing from his neck to the middle of his spine. Is there an average age where his coat darkens in colour?
