    OMG...very disturbing video, seems that man has some issues.

    I'm no hand stripping expert, but from what I've learned....I never learned THAT method....and If I did, I SURE wouldn't do it that way.

      Wow, check out his twisty-wrist. I am surprised he isn't cutting hairs. Must be using a very, very dull knife?

        I can't really blame "lucy" for not liking it. Her whole body moves with every pull.

            rofl!

            How many of the grooming video's on Youtube showing what's being portrayed as proper grooming is done by people SITTING ON THE FLOOR!!!! It really bothers me that people that don't know any better would think these types of video's are the correct way to do it.

              I think I know this guy. I haven't seen him in years, but if it's the same person I'm thinking about. He had a couple of Scotties many years ago and never could finish them.

              Started a shop and it went belly up and then worked for a local Petsoemthing.

                It is why people think handstriping is cruel. It is totally wrong but it is how many people who do not know any better handstrip.

                      I've seen this video before and it did make me cringe. If the coat is totally blown all the guards can come out, leaving the undercoat behind. This looks like he's pulling all the guard hairs and undercoat. Leaving her bald.

                      His technique is WHACK. He is rolling his wrists, the wrists should be stationary, straight.

                        If the hair doesn't pull easily, it's not ready to come out. Dead, blown hair can be pulled out very easily and the dog doesn't even notice.

                        I don't like doing full, complete strips (twice a year kinda thing). I like to work dogs far more often than that.

                          Don't flame me, because I am not an expert. I don't think this technique (taking her to the skin) is that uncommon. I've talked with a handful of terrier breeders and it sounds like that is what a lot of them do. They will figure out how long it takes for a coat to grow out and that amount of time before a show they will completely strip the dog. By the show its a perfect length. I've asked about "rolling" a coat (working on it a little bit on a set interval) and none of the ones I talked to do it that way.

                          Someone email Scott or Sarah and get their input.

                            Taking the dog down to nothing is not uncommon in show world if the dog is out of coat but it doesn't mean that he is doing it right! The proper technique is what maters.
                            There is no need to take down pet dog like this and there is no need to rip out chunks of hair like he does. Besides when you do it and pull hair out like he does, it grows sticking out not laying flat to the body. He is litterally ripping hair out of that poor dog. If he took time to card out undercoat and dead hair, stripping process would have been much easier on both him and the dog. I have seem show handlers pull dogs down but it was done very carefully and with regard to coat growth direction.

                              Breeders may take dogs down to nothing but I don't see any reason to do it to a pet dog. Not that anyone is disagreeing with that.

                              Obviously the dog in this video isn't a show dog.
