Stripping the beard?

Grooming is an important part of looking after your Schnauzer. Regular grooming will help keep your Schnauzer healthy and comfortable and you will spot potential problems early. Whether you decide to clip or strip your Schnauzer, help is on hand. Schnauzers are generally a non-shedding breed and will require a fair amount of grooming to get rid of dead hair.

Stripping the beard?

Post by Schnauzerluv »

I was watching a video demonstrating how to hand strip, it was a Brussel Griffin as a model who gets his whole body hand stripped with very minimal scissoring. The groomer hand stripped a bit of the beard.

I have noticed Ozzy has a bushy full beard. I have recently taken off a bit more the back/under the top jaw of the beard and it helped, but i'm wondering if I hand stripped some hairs there instead (like under the mask) if it would help it lie flatter?

Anyone ever hand strip in the beard?
