In this lesson, Lisa Leady shows you how to groom a pet Wire Fox Terrier. She uses a combination of hand stripping, clipping, and scissoring techniques. Her focus is on the proper breed profile as she hand strips the bulk of the body coat. By doing this, Lisa retains the correct coat texture and brilliant color. In the areas that are more sensitive, she switches to clippers for the comfort of the pet. On the legs, she uses a combination of all three techniques to shape the columned legs and round the feet.
This grooming lesson is perfect for beginners and more advanced stylists. Lisa does a fabulous job discussing hand stripping techniques in detail through the entire video. She also talks about breed profile and how to create the illusion of the proper 45° lay back in the shoulder – on a dog that doesn’t have it! We have broken this video lesson into two sections due to the extent of the content.
In this video you will learn:
• What type of coat is being removed with the hand stripping process
• How to dull a knife that is too sharp
• Which knives Lisa prefers
• Which areas are considered ‘flatwork’
• If you are new to hand stripping, how you will know if you are doing it right
