Short vs Long Fur

All Aussies are "double-coated" meaning they have a thick fur coat that comes in fully between the ages of 12-18 months of age.  Know for a full chest & "butt fluff" regardless of fur length.

Short or short-medium fur is between 1"-2" in length. These dogs still have a full coat but are not as poofy as the long coats.

Long coats are over 2" and quite full bodied coat all over.
