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.
