Oh she would only do it for 1 month after the season since she didn't want to give the dog a cholesterol attack. I don't know if it would work with males, this just helped the coat grow in fuller and faster.

Genetics dictate how much coat a dog is capable of growing. I would NOT feed lard as this is putting the dog at high risk for pancreatitis.

As PG,has said, it is genetic. Feeding lard is asking for so many things... Diarrhea, pancreatitis,etc. Fat will not thicken nor lengthen a coat...
