Some dog breeds' grooming needs vary from the usual groom done with clippers we are all familiar with. Instead, they could do with hand-stripping which helps to maintain the proper coat texture and colour.
Hand-striping is a grooming method done by hand in which the groomer will pluck the outer guard coat and allow new hair to grow freely.
This will help promote proper texture and colour of the breed and will also help their skin to stay healthy by keeping the follicles unobstructed for new hair to grow. The final result will be a natural look.
Contrary to common belief, hand-stripping is not harmful for your pet. It consists of gentle movements that will get rid only of dead hair which is the grooming standard for many breeds
Most terriers are perfect candidates for hand-stripping and so are some cross breeds. Feel free to pop into our shop with your pet so we can assess if this would be the right option for your dog and discuss your and your pet needs.
