If you want to get more grip on your dog’s coat while hand stripping, the Show Tech Rubber Stripping Thimbles are a godsend!
Bye bye damaged hairs and sore hands
They have small studs all over, allowing you to easily grab and hold the hairs while you pull. Your dog’s hairs will be pulled out entirely and won’t be damaged. Another plus is that your hands won’t tingle or get sore from hand stripping. Blisters will also be prevented.
It’s all in the details
First, choose the correct thimble size. Then, slide your thumb and index finger in the thimble and make a tweezer with the point of your index finger and thumb. With your other hand and the help of your fingers or a brush, lift a few hairs from the coat. You can now clearly see the hair tips standing up. Firmly grip the tips between your thumb and finger and pull with the hair growth. Only hand strip a few hairs at a time.
Note: Stripping should not hurt your dog. If the hairs are ripe and ready to come out, you’re basically just pulling out dead hair, which should go easily.
