What a hansome chap.

Tia's coat looks very simular to Hoolie's coat in the first pic.

At what age did you first put him in a puppy pants trim?

Also, certain color poodles (I think reds and whites) have a tendency to have softer coats (again, groomers/white/red poodle owners please correct me).

I would say coat change (which is when the puppy loses its puppy coat) generally occurs around a year of age (give or take a few months older or younger). You may notice adult hair beginning to come in much sooner. When my puppy was around 6 - 7 months I started noticing patches of much coarser, curlier hair. Right now she is about 50/50 soft-wavy puppy coat and coarse,curly adult coat. You will know your puppy is in coat change when her coat begins to mat practically overnight.

ETA: Like PaddleAddict, my puppy also was born with a very coarse puppy coat (which I have heard is typical in browns??). But still, compared to her even coarser adult coat, it was relatively soft and wavy.
My new Puppy is a brown and he has a very soft, starting to curl at the base coat. His Doggy Daycare lady calls him Monkey-fur. My last Spoo was black and had tight, tight curls from the day I brought him home. He was a Therapy dog, and the elderly ladies LOVED running their fingers through his curls! Don't get me wrong, I love the Brown Monkey-fur, but I'm really hoping it changes to curls eventually

You will miss the puppy fluff when it's gone, I promise. As much as I love the wooly sheep feel of a poodle coat, there's just something about puppy fluff that makes me all googly eyed. (and wait til you go through coat change....)

Beau is almost 20 months old now, and still no sign of curls. I'm starting to wonder if he will always be a fluffster.

Really? Beau still doesn't have curls?! I have heard that whites do tend to have softer coat.

Millie is 14 months and she has lots of adult coat now. Her ears are still straight puppy fluff and it drives me bonkers because it is hard to keep them looking nice.

I think I missed out on the puppy fluff with Elphie, hers never really dried completely straight, so it always seemed to be in a state of dishevel XD

But my new girl Heaven, oh man she has puppy fluff galore! I absolutely love it, lol. I know it's not ideal for a show dog, but I hope I have this puppy hair forever
