What age for first hand strip?
« on: November 14, 2021, 11:12:43 AM »
Henry is 5 months now. Just wondered at what age should he get his first proper groom? I think I will get him handstripped as this is supposed to be better for their coats.

When the fluffy puppy coat starts to comb out and can pulled easily without hurting. Puppies vary age wise as to when coat is ready. Don't be over hasty as trying to strip coat too early will be a) painful and b) spoil the adult coat.
