This is a Wheaton scottie puppy. The owner wants to maintain the integrity of the coat, and a handstrip it is.
Problem: i’ve never done a handstrip. It’s a very exact technique performed by very few groomers and paid for by even fewer pet owners. I’ve known groomers who charged up to $100 an hour for stripping. Most terriers and a few other breeds are traditionally stripped or plucked.
So i looked up some videos, borrowed a coworker’s stripping knife, and spent an hour or more stripping the back and plucking the face. It turned out decent, i guess.
