Hand strip
  • Breed standard technique, most suitable for Terriers and some Gun dogs and alike to meet the characteristics of your dog and breed standards.
  • This is an important technique to keep the coat texture and colour.
Hand Strip

From £55

Hand-stripping should be done on a 4-12 weekly basis but will depend on the individual coat, temperament and condition of the dog.

We reserve the right to refuse to carry out this technique on some dogs who do not have a suitable coat, temperament or condition as we adhere to the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

Hand-stripping is more costly and time consuming as it is done by hand and is a very labour intensive technique. If we feel it is too uncomfortable for the dog to carry out this technique we will suggest a different technique.

Please note we do not bath handstrip areas as this technique leaves open pores after the hair has been removed and can sometimes cause an inflammation of the skin.

We recommend a bath 3 days or later after hand-stripping has been carried out. (This will be based on a minimum price for the size of dog)

Terms and conditions

Terms and conditions:

When you leave your pet for an appointment you are subject to our terms and conditions.

  • For the safety of the staff and your pet Absolutely Animals requires that you disclose when booking if your dog exhibits any difficult or aggressive behaviour.
  • No liability will be accepted by Absolutely Animals in injury caused by difficult or aggressive behaviour
  • No liability will be accepted by Absolutely Animals when any health problem is uncovered, exacerbated or reaction to, by any part of the grooming process.
  • An additional cost will be incurred for any dogs that require de-matting or removing a matted coat. This is a time consuming and high risk process which incurs additional costs through dulling equipment and additional products used in de-matting.
  • Flea baths incur an additional cost as not only do the dogs have to sit in the flea shampoo for 10-15 minutes to kill them but we also have to fumigate the whole salon to prevent infestations.
  • We no longer pluck ears for dogs and clip the hairs shorter instead.
  • We do not express anal glands
  • All clients must fill out, sign and date a record card and agree to the disclaimer.
  • Please make sure all dogs are toileted and walked before coming for grooming. Additional fees can be incurred for defecating and urinating where this has obviously not happened.
  • Any big dogs or dogs booked in two or more at a time will be required to pay a £20 deposit. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable on bookings cancelled 24 hours prior to the appointment.
