Hand Stripping

First, it’s good to understand exactly what Hand Stripping is and what it involves. Wire coated breeds should have a double coat consisting of a coarse wiry topcoat known as the guard coat and a soft undercoat. Hand Stripping involves plucking out the coarse guard coat by hand and some suitable tools. Removing the dead guard coat allows new growth to come through which keeps the rich colour and texture of the wiry coat. If this coat is clipped or scissored you will lose the deep colours of the coat, as mainly the pale undercoat will remain and the texture will soften, destroying the protection of the coat. Not all wiry coated dogs can be hand stripped for a variety of reasons such as suitability of the coat, health issues or if the coat has been previously clipped. A show standard hand stripped coat is time consuming and an ongoing process as your groomer would need to be ‘rolling’ the coat on a weekly basis allowing the harsh texture to remain constant. However, we understand this is not suitable for most owners so we will usually completely hand strip the coat in one session. Some dogs are more sensitive than others while being hand stripped and it is something that they need to get used to over time which is why it may need to be done over a few sessions at first. We also like to provide regular water and toilet breaks during the sessions (for both the dog and groomer!) as the appointment will be longer than an average session. However, over time the dog will get used to it and most dogs enjoy the quiet time to relax and be pampered.

Clipping is done by using electric clippers and stripping is done by “plucking” the hair out with fingers and using tools to pull out the dead or blown coat from the roots. Stripping can only be done on dogs with a wire texture coat. Stripping allows the coat to become harder and brilliant in colour. Colour change is more likely to happen in a dog that is clipped. Unfortunately, sometimes even if your dog is a breed known for having a wire coat, he / she will still need clipping because if the hair is too soft, it may hurt the dog. Stripping is also a much lengthier process which requires time an experience to do it properly.
