Default Bergamasco Sheepdog

Now I know which breed must have been the inspiration for Dougal in The Magic Roundabout. Apparently highly intelligent and gentle and with a truly unusual coat. http://www.bergamascousa.org/breedinfo.html

Reminds me a lot of the Komondor: http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/komondor.htm


I wonder if those coats require a lot of upkeep, or none at all to get them to look like that.

From what I understand, once the coats are corded, the only upkeep that needs to be done is separating the cords from each other every once in a while so they don't matt to each other.

I wonder what they are like when they get wet - and how long they take to dry
