HAND STRIPPING

At ‘The Brighton Pet Spa’ we offer a Hand Stripping service to our clients.
Our stylists have undergone extensive training in both Gundogs and Terriers.   Specializing in Cocker Spaniels, Schnauzers and the Long legged terriers.

The advantages to Hand stripping rather than clipping is shown in these photos. The coat texture remains coarse and waterproof keeping the colour vibrant and the coat shiny. Also when the coat is Hand stripped on a regular basis a ‘rotated coat’ can help promote a healthier skin.
Our stylists will be happy to answer all your questions on the Hand Stripping procedure.
