Sneak Peak:

Module 1: Getting Started
Before we jump into grooming I’ll give you a quick lesson on dog skin, hair anatomy, and some important terminology.

This will be our foundation so that you have a deep understanding on “how” and “why” we handstrip.

Module 2: Introduction To Your Tools
Next, I’ll give you a checklist of everything you’ll need to get started.

This Includes my selection of the best stripping stones, carding knives, stripping knives, rakes, combs, and chalk.

I’ll then introduce you to each tool and how to use them for safety and efficiency.

Module 3: Safety
Finally, we need to tackle the “Do’s and Dont’s” of hand stripping. We’ll go through a quick safety checklist along with some basic technique.

I’ll show you how to properly and safely bathe your dogs after hand stripping (and why this is such a hot topic of debate).

Module 3: Let’s Learn to Handstrip
Now we’re ready to start hand stripping! First we learn all the basic techniques and where to use each tool.

I’ll talk you through the entire hand strip. We’ll also learn more about carding, how to roll the coat, and plucking.

You’ll then watch me do a full demonstration on a Wirehaired Dachshund and a Wirefox Terrier.

Module 4: More Advanced Techniques
We’ve tackled the basics – now we can start learning more about stripping the furnishings, beard, and face. I include a workbook that goes through some of the basic patterns for different breeds.

I’ll also include information on hand stripping puppies, mixed breeds, and plucking double coated breeds.

Lastly, I’ll explain how to improve your speed and efficiency.

Most frequent questions and answers

Most Terrier Breeds and Wirecoated breeds are required to be hand stripped. If you are unsure you can see the full list of breeds here, or join the handstrip facebook group and post a picture of your dog to receive grooming advice.

Absolutely. We start at the very beginning and get you up to speed with the basics, and then walk you through full hand strips.

Not at all, I’ll take you step-by-step through the entire process, and I always assume you are starting from the very beginning.

We’ll walk you through the best practices for safety and comfort first before teaching you how to handstrip.

To get started with hand stripping you’ll need a few essential tools.

It’s possible to handstrip with just using your hands, but I highly recommend beginner and intermediate groomers make use of specific tools.

I recommend a set of stripping knives, carding knife, chalk, and a rake. We go over these in detail in the course.

Think of these as a valuable investment for saving time and providing the best possible results.

If you’re just grooming your pet at home you can handstrip on the couch, floor, bed, or wherever is comfortable. It will leave behind some hair so I recommend laying down a blanket or towel first. Or try hand stripping outdoors if it’s nice out.
