Hand Stripping

For Terriers with Coarse Coats and Gundogs

    Service Description

    Suitable for terriers and some terrier mixes. The dead or blown coat is removed by hand to enable the hair follicle to regrow a new harsh or wire coat. This specialised method of grooming helps to retain the vibrant colour and harsh texture that terrier breeds are known for. A harsh coat is waterproof and repels the dirt more easily than a clipped coat. After clipping, a terrier coat becomes soft, attracts dirt and can lose a considerable amount of colour. As this service is more specialised and more labour intensive than clipping, it is priced differently. An assessment of the coat may be required prior to booking, as not all coats are suitable, particularly if your pet has been neutered. Hand stripping is a process that needs regular work.
