Styling & shearing


for a damn-hot look...


Stripping is used on coarse-haired dogs (e.g. West Highland White Terriers, Schnauzers, Fox Terriers etc..) and consists in using a trimming-specific knife that allows the groomer to get rid of a dog's dead hair. This enables our friend to breathe better and makes new hair grow back. By performing stripping regularly hair colour will improve and its hue will get glossy and lively again. This technique requires some time to execute because the locks of hair have to be removed one by one. Stripping sessions should be repeated regularly every 3 months, during which the dog's hair should be treated with the trimming technique.


Trimming is used as a hair maintenance technique between one stripping session and the other, it helps keep hair tidy and should be done once a month. As for the stripping technique, its practice takes some time and patience in order to do an accurate job.


It is recommended that you have your dog shorn twice to three times per year in case of long-haired dogs or specific necessities. Thorough brushing should be done at least twice a week, but its frequency should increase during molt months.


Cutting a dog's hair using scissors, which requires a good skill, enhances the peculiarities of every kind of dog (such as Barbets, Malteses, Yorkshire Terriers, Shih Tzus, Bichon Frisé).
