Hello.... I'm new to K9Mania. I'm looking for advice on our Bernese Mountain Dog's wavey hair on his back. He's 5 months old. Should we be concerned about this? I've never seen wavey hair like this on a Bernese Mountain dog and I can't find any research on this strange condition. We have all the papers on the bloodline and there is no reference to this. Could someone please direct me on what causes this.

Thank you!

What are you referring to, BerneyGirl? I own a 1-year old female Berner, and I believe that's just the normal adult hair growing in :) I don't think this is a strange condition - our girl had that hair on her tail at three months old.

Most young Bernes I have seen tend to have waves - many adults do to. Do you have any pics?
Also hes not neutered yet is he?

From what i see, they do have wavy hair. What's to be concerned about?
