HAND STRIPPING

Our groomers are experienced in the art of hand stripping. This is where a wire coated dog has their fur removed by hand as opposed to using electric clippers.

It is a specialized service and only certain groomers have the skill to perform it. Hand stripping works by removing the top layer of hair known as ‘guard hairs’ to reveal a softer undercoat. It is a more natural form of grooming for these wire coated breeds of dog and in the long run, gives better condition and shine to the dogs’ coat as it opens up the hair follicles.
