Hand stripping

At The Dog Yard we offer a hand stripping service, this is a grooming method used by dog groomers to remove dead hair from wire haired and some silky dog’s coats; hand stripping is the proper grooming procedure for most terriers, spaniels, and many other breeds.

Some dog breeds have a particular type of coat that requires hand stripping. A coat that needs hand stripping produces two types of hair, the under coat which is soft and dense and a longer top coat with a wire texture which has a cycle where it starts growing and then sheds as it reaches maximum length.

Hand-stripping and clipping are very different, the process of hand-stripping involves removing the dead hairs from the top coat by pulling them out from the roots either using a stripping knife, stripping stone or your fingers rather than trimming them. With the top coat removed to reveal the dense, soft undercoat this then enables a new coat to grow through. Clipping will only remove the top layer, if a wire hair or silky coat is clipped this can result in the fur becoming duller, changing colour and losing its correct texture.

If done correctly, the procedure is painless and many dogs enjoy having their hair stripped, especially if they are introduced to it as puppies.

If you would like any more information or would like to book your dog in for hand stripping please give me a call. Prices will be based on the individual dog once they have been assessed.
