What is “hand stripping”?

Hand stripping involves plucking the dead hair by hand or with use of a tool rather than clipping or cutting the coat. This results in a coarser hair texture, which is the “correct” method of grooming for most terriers. The process takes more time, the cost is somewhat higher, and the dog will need to come in regularly every 4-5 weeks for ongoing maintenance.

When making your appointment, please inform us that your dog requires hand stripping, so we can book them in an appropriate time slot and with the correct stylist.
