I am having trouble differtiating between the american coat and the irish coat. It seems one is more fluffy/poodle like. The other is more of a scruffy/scrappy look. But which is which? Thanks

American Coats tend to be more fluffy.

American coat is thicker, coarser and mats easily, requiring frequent grooming. Irish coat, once mature, is silky with a shine and doesnt mat, requiring occasional brushing and occasional washing as the natural oils and hair require less hassle to look quite spectacular

Both coats are soft and silky, hence the name: Soft Coated Wheaten. The American coat is straighter with a slight wave. The Irish coat is curly. Both coats require extensive grooming if left long. Both tend to mat fairly easily, unless brushed very regularly. And, neither coat sheds.
