Do you own a rough-coated breed of dog? If your dog has wiry hair then they need grooming by hand, rather than with clippers, to ensure their coat maintains its colour and strength.

Hand stripping involves pulling out the dead hair from the outer coat, encouraging a new wiry coat to grow through.

Clipping will ruin the texture and structure of the dog’s coat in the long-term.

It doesn’t hurt and most dogs actually enjoy the hands-on treatment.

If you’re not sure whether your dog needs clipping or hand stripping, call in and see us at sty-leash groomers and we can advise you.
