Hand Stripping the Irish Terrier - Part 2
The Irish Terrier is one of the oldest Terrier breeds. He is an all purpose dog, a loyal protector of the family, as well as an all-around farm dog or hunting companion. This breed is unique in its outline compared to others in his group. In this lesson, Lisa Leady grooms a retired show dog. She shows you the basic elements of hand stripping combined with proper breed profile trimming.
Lisa Leady continues to groom the Irish Terrier to breed profile. This dog has not been groomed in quite a while. The long coat prompts Lisa to talk about what it DOES take to get a dog back into condition. In the second half, she works on creating the 'brick shaped' head, so classic of many of the long legged Terriers. .
