My westie is 15 months old and pretty much just has a wire coat. Does anyone know when the second layer will come in. Most other westies that I have met that have both are a bit older.

Our Westie was in full thick double coat by 12 months. Some do take a bit longer though. Consult the dog's breeder to see if their dogs take longer. Also check the Westie's skin ...if it looks reddish, irritated, or has browinsh flakes then it could be skin allergies are preventing the coat from growing in properly. If that's the case, consult your dog's vet.
