|Hey fellow DFW Shiba!
Koji's coat is thinner than a lot of other Shibas' coats. Could have something to do with Dallas being warmer than other places, and it definitely has something to do with genetics. I wouldn't worry about it. I do know around winter, when it's much colder outside (even though we don't get lots of snow) I make Koji sit outside on his favorite spot on the balcony to soak in the cold and encourage a fluffier coat, but remember, it'll all have to shed out later! Generally his coat is fluffiest during colder months, but it still only as big as some of my friends' Shibas' summer coats! He's just not as fluffy, which is fine.
I know coats improve on a raw diet, or at least a grain free kibble and salmon oil helps, but again, most of it has to do with genetics. Just sit back and be thankful you don't have to deal with a REAL Shiba coat! I know I am.
