Hand Stripping Hair Removal - 7 Days a Week

Dogs with wiry coats go through a specific growing cycle. Clipping the hair doesn’t remove the coat from the root.

Hair as it grows, it becomes thicker and darker and if you do not remove the dead hair from the top coat it will have a negative impact on the overall appearance of the coat.

To give you an idea of dogs that are good candidates for hand stripping they are, but not limited to:

  • Airedale Terrier
  • Boarder Terrier
  • Bouvier de Flanders
  • Affenpincher
  • Carin Terrier
  • Wire Fox Terrier
  • Jack Russel Terrier
  • German Wirehaired Pointer
  • Schnauzer
  • Wirehaired Pointing Griffon
  • Wirehaired Dachshund

What Is The Difference Between Clipping And Hand Stripping?

The difference between clipping and hand-stripping is that not only is hand-stripping done by hand, but it removes coat from the root so a new coat is able to grow. Each time you clip a dog’s coat instead of hand stripping, you are just taking off the top layer of dead fur rather than removing it from the roots – as a result, the coat may become duller in texture and color with each clipping.

A hand stripped dog’s coat looks absolutely amazing. Our highly groomer Nicole specializes in this technique.
