At Dogs Delight we specialise in Hand-stripping. We own and groom terriers for show and understand the more complex methods involved in achieving the correct coat appearance.
This method of grooming is carried out less and less in pet grooming salons as a result of time restrictions or a lack of good training.
Should you have your dog handstripped?
Is the dog Neutered?
How old is the dog?
Has the dog been clipped in the past?
Does hand stripping suit the client and dog’s lifestyle?
The technique involves pulling out the dead top coat to leave a more natural look then clipping. It should be carried out on breeds with wire coats to maintain the correct coat texture and colour. Dogs should be stripped every 4-12 weeks.
Prices for Hand Stripping start from £65 (may be less if the dog is on a frequent schedule).
