Professional Parson Russell Terrier Hand Stripping £15.00 per hour
We breed and show Parson Russell Terriers to Championship Show standard and specialise in hand stripping techniques. It is important that you treat your terriers coat in the correct way to avoid it changing structure and appearance.
The Parson Russell Terriers "Jacket" should NEVER be clipped.
This will cause the coat to become soft, fluffy and it will matt easily. It can also cause problems for the skin if the coat is not stripped. Terrier coats are designed to come out when "snagged" in bushes, hunting down holes etc. Therefore if the dead hair is not "plucked" or "stripped" so that new hairs can grow your dogs coat will never be at its best.
Talk to us about how we can help you keep your terriers coat in outstanding natural condition from puppy hood to old age! I only groom to championship breed standard, so you can be sure that if you ever fancy trying to qualify for Crufts...your dog will definitely look the part!!
Discounts available to PRT owners who own Pacolito and Bramarno bred dogs!
Coat Rescue and Re-Start Appointment
£20.00 per hour
If you have just read the above and thought "OH NO! we have always clipped our Parson, his coat is ruined!" Fear not. It IS possible to regain your PRT's natural coat structure and texture by starting to hand strip instead of clipping.
However, how fluffy/soft the hair has become will determine how long it will take to regain the perfect coat. I am happy to take your dogs coat right back to its "Pajamas" in order to encourage the new coat to grow and help develop the true structure and texture. Once the coat is "re-set" you would then only need the regular stripping appointments.
This may take a number of hours or appointments to get the clipped coat out and for the new coat to begin to grow. I have to give the dog lots of little breaks and lots of love and cuddles, as stripping out a previously clipped coat is difficult and very time consuming. My first priority is ALWAYS the comfort of the dog, therefore I always go at their pace. Some will stand and let me just get on with the job, others require more reassurance and time - especially if they have never been stripped before.
If your thinking "is it worth it? shall I just carry on clipping? its cheaper and he looks fine...."
Take a look at two of my clients case studies below.
Please note that Hand Stripping does not automatically include a bath and blow dry. Please see further down the page for treatments you can add on to your stripping appointment.
Client Number 1: Fynn
This is one of my clients pet PRT's before his very first Rescue and Re-Start appointment.
He suffered from sore skin problems that no one could find a remedy for, not even his vet. He had always been previously clipped... I suspected that having his coat stripped out and starting again would help his skin condition....
Here he is 3 hours later, after his initial full Rescue and Re-Start appointment and I am happy to say that 6 months on, his skin and coat are now much healthier and his true coat structure is returning! He even has undercoat and top coat now!
This was done
COMPLETELY BY HAND and finished by trimming and scissoring the face, feet undercarriage and tail.
Client Number 2: Mr Wilson!
Here is another of my lovely clients! This was also his first restart appointment, however in this case he had had a mixture of stripping and clipping previously. This made regaining his natural structure a little easier as he had some undercoat as well as the fully top coat....
Here he is 2 hours later! Taken "right down to his pyjamas" by hand and having had his face, feet, undercarriage and tail trimmed and scissored.
Here he is after his first maintenance appointment 3 months later. You can already see how his coat is now returning to its natural structure and texture. Lovely boy! I love grooming Wilson!
