Handstripping – what you need to know.
It is a matter of my terrier affection to teach owners, grooming apprentices, beginners and also seasoned groomers why and how to care for a handstripped coat.
No, it isn’t “just for showdogs”, yes, it is work, yes, it will take time and yes it also takes a bit of theoretical foundation to know what exactly you are doing.
Give it a go – your dog needs it and s/he deserves it, too.
This is Connie – we adopted her December 2016 at the age of nearly 9 years old with the help of The Parson Russell Terrier Welfare (prtwelfare @ outlook.com). After short but rapid decline of her health we needed to let her go on the 17th February 2023, shortly after her 16th birthday. This fundraiser is in memory of this wonderful little dog.
I have written articles for the Yearbooks of Parson Russell Terrier Club in UK (2019 and 2021). The last one about handstripping was also taken on by the Parson Russell Terrier Association of America (Nook July 2022). It has been translated into German and will be published there as well.
