There are two types of coats accepted for the Australian Cobberdog. In general terms, its hair is soft and silky. It should not produce an odour or be spongy.
The Australian Cobberdog can wear its hair long or short, according to preference. The best way the dog looks is keeping its long hair, as it is soft to touch and beautiful to the eye. It is also recommended to keep its hair long, even in summer, as it protects their sking from sun rays. It is highly advisable to brush their hair every day or every other day to avoid knots or tangles, as well as going to the groomer every 30-45 days to keep the hair tidy and hydrated and shiny.
