Hand Stripping

Hand stripping is a technique used to remove dead hair on either silky breeds such as cocker spaniels and wirey breeds such as border terriers. 

It’s a method of grooming which rather than using clippers, the hair is stripped out by hand or using stripping tools. 

Handstripping can only be done correctly when the hair is ‘ready’ to be stripped, and if the dogs coat is suitable for stripping, for more in depth information on this, please ask.
