What's the difference between clipping and stripping?

Posted in Grooming

Clipping is done by using electric clippers and stripping is done by “plucking” the hair out with finger and thumb technique. Stripping can only be done on dogs with a wire texture coat. Unfortunately sometimes even if your dog is a breed known for having a wire coat he/she will still need clipping because if the hair is too soft it is just like pulling out fluff and this will hurt your pet. Stripping is also a much longer process and takes around 3 hours to complete, but the finish look is very natural and leaves your dog with the desired wire texture to the coat.
