Mars Coat King Product Guide

Dog Coat Stripping

Stripping a dogs coat is the process of removing the dog hair that naturally dies and sheds, for most breeds this occurs around every six months. The coat of the dog comprises of two types of dog hair, the longer coarser hair that is the outer coat and the shorter softer hair found underneath. It is generally the coarser hair that sheds and needs to be removed to improve the appearance of the coat.

Stripping your dogs coat should be included in the regular grooming routine when the dog is shedding hair and in preparation for stripping the dogs coat always comb and brush the dog and carefully remove knots and tangles.

When purchasing your dog most breeders will happily advise on how to care for your puppy’s coat, so ask them about your pets coat care requirements.
