Hand-stripping is a technique that retains the proper texture of a dog’s coat. This is done by hand only using a plucking motion. Certain breeds with wiry coats are hand-stripped so that dirt and water don’t penetrate through to the skin. A hand-stripped coat must never be clipped. Jean offers this service also and has hand-stripped Border Terriers, Cairn Terriers, Norfolk Terriers, miniature schnauzers and small terriers.
