You have two hair-coated breeds. They're notable for the fact that their fur does NOT quit growing- it has to be trimmed.

Your puppy robably has a softer puppy coat than he will have as an adult coat; coat change (when his puppy coat is replaced by adult coat) can happen anywhere between 6-18 months; during this time, dogs mat more easily and need more coat care.

Your puppy will almost certainly need to be clipped regularly (4-6 weeks) as an adult. Get him into a groomer regularly starting NOW so he can get used to the routine, or practice daily at home with him.

thanks, i knew they were both double coat breeds and he would need a lot of grooming but was just wondering length. Im going to make him a groomers appointment this week and im brushing him daily with a baby brush. He has a very soft puppy coat which is fairly wavy the breeder said she thought it was going to be more like the bichons coat but they seem to be a lot more curly. His hair is creamy white from the roots for the 1st 3/4 the has grey with apricot tips so if i clip him he will be white!!
Also what kind of cut would you ask for a puppy cut (short all over?) or more of a schnauzer cut?
