Hand Strip all of the coat – no cutting the wire coat by scissors or clippers! If cut the wire hairs will permanently be lost and wont grow back. Typically it takes 3-4 trims with the cillpers to completely kill all the wire hairs. By doing this, the coat will become faded and loose all the natural protection from UV and its waterproofing.
Make sure if you have a wire coat breed – a hand strip is the only way to make sure your dog remains healthy.
After all – it does make them look smart!
