“Nahla” the Airedale came in for a hand stripping ..she was sweet girl …The purpose of hand-stripping is to maintain the natural texture and color of the dog’s coat while promoting healthy hair growth. By removing the dead outer coat, the new hair can grow in thicker and healthier, which can result in a more vibrant and lustrous coat.

“Bagel”. .. unfortunately isn’t a big fan of grooming and has been passed on by other groomers (to their defense handling difficult dogs isn’t always the easiest and bites can be career ending)I personally like working with difficult dogs to get them used to the grooming process …. Bagel is on the road to also enjoying the grooming process 🥰🐶💜🥰 🐾❤️🐶🛁
