    Inspired by this great webinar to put fear to the side and start stripping. I had a preconceived notion that stripping was tough for a dog to handle. Manessa shows us how the dog is really relaxed and doesn’t mind when stripping is done the right way. By using the right techniques and tools you can have your wire coat dog look beautiful. Looking forward to her next webinar.
