    Default Does Anyone Have a Labrador with a coat this curly

    Our young dog (almost 1 year now) has the hardest and curlist wavy coat of any lab I have ever seen or bred,he is from field trial stock, and I know one line that he has in his pedigree that do have some wavy hair, but most of it on the back near to the tail, we had one some years ago with this type of wavy coat. but this dog is a bit special for coat condition, (he is more like a duck.) when he comes out of our river or the ponds after chasing the geese, he just gives one shake and he is dry, the water runs off of him in beads.. its like he has been waxed.I am putting the photo up of his back so you can see for your self..

    Wow, that's curly! Cute.

    Lady (our neighbor's lab) has very wavy hair, but not as wavy as yours!

    Holy smokes! That IS curly!

    Murphy (our chocolate) has a slight wave down his back. 'Tho, not nearly as pronounced as your boy does. His is also much more visible when he first comes out of the water.

    Mitzi's coat is very wavy/curly, but the curly part is concentrated above her shoulders and half way down her back, with waves on the rump. It gets very curly after she has been wet.

    would love to know how your dog was bred (have you the full pedigree both sides back to 5 generations or more)
    I can probally go back to 20 generations with this dog
    As I said I have had these dogs for 50 years now and have never had one like this lad, so would be very interested to see pics of yours
    another pick of the dog just got out of the water not a drop on it.

    Thanks for the pic she looks a lovely dog
    and I can see the wave at the tail end ,but maybe its the photo that I cannot see any along the back that is as pronounced as this other dog, I looked at the pedigree and thier was of course nothing connecting the two dogs, this one is field trial bred and with no overseas line to it, and I see yours has no English line, which is disappointing as I was hoping to find a connection.

    My dogs all go back to Blaircourt, Ballyduff, Follytower, Sandylands all of which were/are very well known kennels in the UK.

    This dog's whole back was waved. I wish I could take a picture of it for you, but alas I cannot.

    Thank you for the reply
    Of course I know the Sandyland line and some of the others but the only one I can find in our pedigree is Sandylands Royal Escort 7 generations back. and that is the only one in the whole line with a show line, so maybe its the Sandylands, the lady who had the Sandylands line is now sadly no longer with us, she did some great work with her dogs.the line has passed onto some one else who may be able to throw some light on it for me
    I will have to trace it back
