    Which is it? You have always shaved every terrier in the garden? Or your latest post you have stripped and clipped dogs for years? Which is it? If clipping is the answer why have you persisted in stripping dogs as we’ll? Your full of shite and I for one wouldn’t believe anything you say on this forum.

    If you have only ever shaved them you will see no improvement the coat will just stay the same as you have found, if you stripped the coat for the first time you would see an improvement, how do I know that ? Because I’ve done it many times to many dogs and not once has someone said to me the coat is just the same as before, rabbit hunter all I can say to you is try it and you will be converted, it takes 2-3 hours to do one dog.

    I’ve had a good look round today for a moisture trap and you can get in line ones but they are only good for 10 psi which is miles away from what I need, the hydraulic shop I’ve been today said they don’t know of any 200 psi in line filters .

    Well it will do cos you have only ever clipped it!! Stripping is for both working and showing as it’s the best coat for both, what amazes me is the ones who have only ever clipped there dogs know best,I strip my dogs because it’s whats best for them regards protection, I put the same effort into keeping them fit,feeding, housing, obedience and hunting every day it’s all part of looking after your dogs correctly no half measures for me.

    Stripping is for showing and clipping for workers !! You have that the wrong way round, how long have you owned working dogs 18 months.

    There’s two types of hair the outer hard coat and a softer under coat. Advice, wise men don’t need it and fools won’t take it.

    I didn’t say the coat wouldn’t grow back.the reason why the dogs coat changes direction is because clipping damages the outer guard hairs but the under coat is not damaged so grows as normal ,with the guard hairs damaged and the under coat growing as normal the coat grows out .when stripping the dogs coat your pulling dead coat out so there’s no damage to the follicle.you may have always clipped your dogs and that’s upto you but there is a better way .

    No it’s not it’s just called that by folks who don’t or can’t hand strip there dogs, when I do mine I’ll put some before and after pics up, if you don’t fancy hand stripping your dogs rather than clipp buy a mars comb £30 ish it pulls and cuts the coat rather than just clip the coat, it’s not as good as hand stripping but much better than clipping.

    It’s because with hand stripping you are pulling the dead hair out which promotes new hair growth which thickens the coat with clipping you are just shortening the hair that’s there.

    There’s better ways, dogs coats should be hand stripped not clipped there are exceptions like Bedlingtons and Wheatons but most rough coated terriers should be hand stripped, hand stripped dogs coats grow flat to their backs keeping muck & weather out ideal for an earth dog or one that’s out all day in rain, plus in the summer a stripped coat keeps the dog cool. Clipped coats grow out and not flat to the dogs back which offers less protection against the weather and let’s muck reach the skin, continues clipping also softens the coat the only plus point is it’s easy to do.
