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. Despite the need for more care, long hair is the most enjoyable, as it feels pleasant and looks majestic. Long hair requires a weekly brushing to avoid knots, and a visit to the canine stylist every month and a half to be hydrated.
