  • Shampoo: the shampoo used is a good quality brand, a shampoo will be selected that is complementary to the coat type and skin

  • Hand stripping is a grooming process that involves removing the dead hairs from the coat by hand instead of clipping to keep the coat tidy and healthy. This is usually completed twice a year in spring and autumn, it speeds up natural process of growth and shedding. The groomer plucks the outer guard hairs from the coat entirely by hand when the coat is blown. It is common practice to use tools such as stripping knives and stones to help with the process. Please note that when dogs/bitches have been neutered the coat may change in texture and therefor hand stripping may not be possible as the coat can become soft.
