Wire-haired breeds will often require a technique called hand stripping to remove the dead, outer coat. This will allow a new harsh wire coat to grow back. Hand stripping maintains the colour and texture of the coat compared to clipping which dulls the colour and softens the hair. The hair is removed by hand or using a stripping knife. Before each hand strip, we bath your pup in shampoo tailored to the coat type and then fluff dry. We finish with a nail trim, ear cleaning and full body styling.
