Many terriers coats will consist of 2 types of hair, a soft undercoat and a top wirey coat. Stripping is when the dead hair is taken out either by hand or a stripping knife depending on the breed type. This allows for a new wire coat to come in. many people wonder what the difference is and why do it, but when a coat is clipped the dead top coat doesn't get removed from the roots, this prevents a new top coat to come in, it then loses its texture and colour with every clip. Handstripped dogs also only need their coat stripped about every 3 to 4 months where as a clipped dog will need doing every 6 to 8 weeks
Many people think of grooming parlours and conjour up thoughts of pamperred poodles etc but all dogs need to be groomed and some more than others. Big dogs also need to be groomed for many reason:
- To maintain health as experienced groomers pick up early signs of disease, ear, eye infections, impacted anal glands and also any sensitivity to pain
- Big dogs with big coats can get matts close to the skin that can go un-noticed this can then develop skin infections and sometimes nasty bacterial infections
- Big coats also make it very difficult to see bumps and lumps that can be life threatening to a dog
- Imagine not showering or brushing your own hair on a daily basis. It's the same for your dog, it makes him feel good as his coat can be very annoying and itchy if not maintained properly
We love big dogs and would never turn them away just because of their size. Why would we? Most of our staff own them!
It is highly recomended that you bring in your puppy/kitten from a very young age. We offer cheaper puppy/kitten grooming packages to introduce your pet to handling and grooming.
