Coat: Silky to the bit, the coat is soft and light-weight in texture in each outer and undercoat, though the outer coat carries slightly additional weight. The coat is long, lush and wavy. It stands off the body slightly, however, flows with movement. a perfect coat can allow the natural lines of the dog to be seen. Puppy coat could also be shorter and have a softer texture than an adult coat. A single, flat, kinky or curly coat ought to be faulted. A coarse, thin coat could be a disqualification. A short, sleek coat with or while not furnishings could be a disqualification. The coat could also be unsmooth. unsmooth coats can naturally separate into wavy sections in young dogs and can in time turn into cords. Adult unsmooth dogs are fully lined with a full coat of tassle-like cords.
