    Hand stripping is quite a time consuming dog grooming service and not all dog groomers will offer it. As the name suggests, this grooming practice is all done by hand. In the most simplistic terms, hand stripping involves pulling the dead fur out of the coat, and so promoting the growth of new fur. This does not discomfort the dog in any way, as it is already dead...the fur that is! This type of dog grooming will also thin out the coat and improve the overall appearance of the fur quite considerably.

    One of my pet hates is seeing dogs shaved off unnecessarily. I saw a lovely Golden the other day, shaved to the skin, except for his head and large plumed tail. What are they thinking! The coat is there to protect the dog from the elements. My own breed (Cockers) frequently have their body coat clippered off when there is no need for this. In many cases it ruins the coat. A Mars Coat King will keep the body coat neat and tidy.

    I don't kknow much about grooming. I don't groom either of my dogs except a bath and occasionally we trim pippis facial hair (not her mo or beard though just round the eyes and top of head so it doesn't mat or get gunk in) and her butt hole.

    But is it really that big a deal to clip his fur? It'll grow back

    I have 2 crossbreeds.

    A big black one (possibly lab x), who I should actually correct, we do give a quick brush now and again coz he moults something chronic. And a foxy/shih mix who is the one we do trim sometimes round her face so she doesnt get all gunked up.

    But what have my dogs got to do with the price of fish?

    I know what hand stripping is I thought you meant something else.
    I do my own grooming & I am sure most poodle poeple would be horrified at my skills but dogs are all happy.

    I asked what breed your dog was to get some idea of the coat type. You did ask would it really be that big a deal if you clipped his fur. This would depend on his coat type, hence why I asked the question.
