    Waw, 42 years! I hope that I can groom for another 10 years, and I will have 42 years of grooming experience too! You can have a look at my films ( among others the rolling coat on the cairn terrier), by typing ‘toilettagemarilles’ on google, and you will find my website with the videos.

    Thank you.  It bothers me when people assert that professional groomers do not have the best interests of the pet in mind. I have spent 42 years of my life grooming, always advocating for the welfare of the pets in my care. Not all dogs/coats are good candidates for hand stripping. Yesterday I recommended that we abandon stripping of a young Mini Schnauzer I groom. The dog has poor tolerance and the coat is very hard to pull nicely. The dog in the video clearly tolerates the procedure.

    I agree with Barbara. If you know what you’re doing, hand stripping is the best way to groom a wire haired dog, and is not painfull at all, when done at the right moment. Clipping or scissoring will not make the dog happier, because his coat will tangle more quickly, and encourage skin problems.
    I try to groom cairn terriers in ‘a rolling coat’.

  • Barbara Bird

    I sincerely appreciate your concern for the welfare of the pets in our care, but the assumption that hand stripping is inhumane or not good for the pet is untrue. Dogs that do not tolerate hand stripping should not endure the process, but most terriers are not bothered. In those tender areas where a dog is more sensitive, underbelly, under the tail, etc, we always compromise with the pet and use scissors. In all grooming, the tolerance of the dog should be a prime consideration.

  • Barbara Bird

    I can tell you that clipping and scissoring is easier on both the dog and the groomer and takes much less time. But that does not necessarily mean that clipping the coat is “better” for the dog. The hand stripped coat is healthier. What we are removing by stripping is old hair that is accumulating and clogging the hair folliicle, preventing fat new healthy hair to develop. For the most part, hand stripped dogs have fewer skin problems than clippered pets. Fresh coat is less porous.

    in the end whats best for the dog is the clipper…not the stripping. but, people rarely care whats best for the dog.

  • DeliusJM

    great video…but. can you tell me should a pet just be groomed with scissors etc? it’s probably easier on the dog in the end.
