An specialized grooming technique, Hand Stripping involves manually pulling the dog’s hair in the direction of its natural growth, with the separation of extraneous coat being done either with one’s hands, or with a small “hand stripping” knife-and-stone set.  

Typically performed for wire-haired dog breeds, the intention of Hand Stripping is to retain the wire-haired breed’s natural coat; while the Groomer may employ some hand scissoring to shape the face and/or legs, standard grooming tools such as clippers are not used at all.
