There is nothing more glorious than a thick, fluffy, clean, shiny coat. The coarse double coat has a long outer coat that is harsh and stiff. Underneath is a soft, downy undercoat that is shed annually. The outer coat protects the dog's skin from sunburn, cuts and scrapes. The undercoat is for warmth during the cold winter months. A thick undercoat means a fluffier coat. Show dogs need a thick undercoat and harsh, coarse outer coat to be competitive. Cindra products are uniquely designed to enhance this difficult coat no matter what stage it is in.
