Some dog breeds have double coats which means the undercoat is short and soft but the top coat on some breeds is made up of wirey or coarse longer hair. The longer hair is what falls out also known as malting and as you konw this covers your house clothes and the carpet! For these breeds, stripping dog hair by hand is the best way to look after them. If this type of coat does get clipped then it becomes fluffy and can alter the colour, making it dull. Hand stripping helps the coat colour to remain stronger and brighter.
Hand stripping dog hair is a time consuming method so for this reason you may find not all pet grooming companies will not offer it. As the name says hand stripping involves stripping by hand. In the most basic terms we remove the dead fur out of the coat. This method does not discomfort the dog in any way as the fur is already dead. This also thins the coat so a new coat is able to grow in and improves the overall appearance of the your dogs fur.
Dogs what are handstripped are often dogs with a wirey coat. Here are a list of common breeds to be hand stripped.
