Normal Coat?

Hello there,
I have an 11 month old Goldie named Boomer... It may sound crazy but I am concerned his coat is just not what it should be. My sweet Chopper boy had FUZZY hair, from puppy on through his life. Boomer has much more slick hair and I feel like for almost a year old it should be much longer. Am I overanalyzing this?

Boomer actually has the exact same kind of coat that my Jasper has and he is nearly a year old. Im not worried about it particularly, maybe it just takes a bit longer for some dogs, im not sure? Either way Boomer is gorgeous! :-)

Thank you very much. I would find it less concerning except that my mother has Boomer's sister and she has that fuzzy wuzzy goldie coat... in a different color of course. It just seems like he is behind with this coat. Unless he is just going to have the slicker coat!

Bonnie and Clyde are 12, they are from different litters, but have the same Dad. Clyde's coat has alway been slicker than Bonnie's fuzzy butt! It is much easier to maintain, and he sheds far less. Calvin is 3, and Skyler is 1, they both have slicker coats.....I, for one, am very happy about that!

My yorkies are all related and have totally different coats.

He looks great to me. Stop worrying over nothing.

Hank's coat is straighter, silkier and two toned, his brother's coat is thicker, curlier and one shade. Both are beautiful, just different.

It looks a lot like Ben's coat. It's very soft and silky. The best part is he doesn't shed much at all.
