Hi! Im new here. Im trying to buy a labradoole puppy and I just wanted to know if a wavy fluffy coat in a puppy is more leaning to wavy or to straight. Im very confused with the types of coats. I dont know if they change eventually or not. My kids dont like the very curly coat but Idk if the one Im looking at is too straight. Thank you馃槉

Because of the nature of mixing breeds, it's going to be quite hard to predict the adult coat of a labradoodle puppy, outside the extreme ends. That is, a puppy who already has a super curly coat at 8 weeks is unlikely to lose that curl, and a puppy who has a very straight coat is really unlikely to ever develop curl. Puppy coats do change as they mature, even in purebreds, and mixed breeds just don't have the benefit of generations of consistent coat type making things very predictable.
