What’s the thinking behind shaving a working dog like this?.

Probably Summer time , if dog has thick coat helps clip them out , same as clipping a Wheaton out or Wheaton lurcher

certain families of hairy patts have extremely thick coats and the poor sods suffer when it's warm,stripping them out helps 👍

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.

Each to there own, it’s his dog mate he can clip or strip , me personal I clip because it’s easer and coat normally back to exactly the same as befor they were clipped ,

I’ve heard that before STR but is it true or an old wives tale? I can’t understand how the cutting of the hair could alter how it grows?

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.

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.
