Part 1 of 2:

Pam will discuss Handstripping Basic, Advanced and Practical Techniques and Methods, with each part building upon the previous.  Handstripping is not just for Terriers, but is an essential pet styling technique that can be used to remove clipper tracks, combat folliculitis, control matting and help to improve the lay, texture, luster and color of coats.  Learn how to choose the right tools, how to remove excess undercoat as well as to sculpt and design.

Part 2 of 2:

Pam will demonstrate how to card, strip, pluck and razor a coat, plus learn how to “rotate” and “stage” a coat. Pam will focus upon helping participants develop the technical and artistic skills needed to learn and/or perfect their handstripping techniques and methods. As a bonus, she will discuss and demonstrate shed control tools and combination trims.
