I was wondering if you guys had a preference from short Haired to Long Haired.
I really dont know what i Like I have all Short hair but am thinking Long because they are all so beautiful :)

Long coat!!!! They are prettier to me and poops don't get stuck if you feed a good enough diet :) just waiting for their coats to come in is annoying

I like SC because I think you have a better idea what they will look like as an adult earlier. LC take soooooo long to grow into themselves, but are 100% more gorgeous IMO once grown! I am in love with the LC now but never used to like them.

Not that you're impatient about coat growth??!

I only liked short coats until I got my long coat, now I don't think I would buy another short coat again.
It's been the opposite for me. I've always had really long coated dogs, (not chi's, mind) but now after having short coats, I really prefer them. While both are lovely, I like the way short coats look better. I think it's so cute seeing their defined little shapes. :D I've noticed too that of the long coats, I always prefer the ones that aren't double coated, I definitely prefer the single layer LC.

LC all the way! :D

I'm impatient about coat growth, too. Tucker has an amazing coat at 2 (and has since he was under a year), but Emma's coat is growing in much slower. I can't wait to see what she looks like with a full coat.

I do love the look of the SCs as well... but I think the LCs are prettier. I always want at least one of each!

Definitely long-coats for me, they look so beautiful. And Alfie never gets any poo stuck in his furry knickers lol.

Same here, I've had a Poodle for eons and those coats are work!
The long coat Chi to me is very minimal work, I don't even brush Bijou.. :lol:
His fur never gets tangly.
I do think he is single coat though he is not as dense fur wise as many long coated Chi's I see on here.

I just love how silky soft his fur is! it's like snuggling a cotton ball :D
