It seems to depend which breed standard you read as to whether Labs are double coated. The CKC says nothing about it. The AKC says they have an undercoat and the UKC says they are double coated. http://www.canadasguidetodogs.com/la...abarticle6.htm
My Lab's breeder is enthusiastic about the furminator but I'm reading this thread in hopes of learning more about them before I shell out big bucks. The idea of cutting does scare me off.
