A medium coat is generally longer than one inch, but still looks quite short. The following are some common medium-coated breeds:
- Australian Shepherd
- Border Collie
- Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
- German Shepherd Dog
- Golden Retriever
- Great Pyrenees
- Pembroke Welsh Corgi
- Saint Bernard
- Siberian Husky
Medium-coated breeds are also relatively easy to groom, as their coats generally don't get extremely dirty or develop mats. Some medium-coated breeds may require an occasional trim on the neck, ears, face, or feet, but generally, a good weekly brushing and a monthly grooming session will suffice.
As part of your dog's monthly grooming session, give him a bath, and then, make sure he is completely dry. You can let him air dry, towel dry him, or even use a blow dryer on a low heat. Once he's dry, use a clipper or scissors to neaten the outline of his coat. Never clip for too long without stepping back and taking a look at your work! Medium coats don't require much trimming, so it's easy to over trim.
