Stripping Grooming Service in Reston-Herndon, VA

Mobile Hand Stripping Grooming Services

At Woofie's®, we understand that each pet is unique, and that's why we offer a wide range of grooming options tailored to suit their individual needs. From luxurious baths that leave their coats glistening to stylish haircuts that showcase their personalities, our expert groomers are dedicated to making your pets look and feel their absolute best.

Among our exclusive offerings, we take immense pride in providing our specialized hand stripping grooming service. This technique is perfect for certain breeds with wiry coats, like terriers, spaniels, and some long-haired breeds. Hand stripping not only maintains the natural texture and color of their fur but also promotes healthy hair growth, ensuring a long-lasting and beautiful coat that will turn heads everywhere they go.

What is Hand Stripping Grooming?

Hand stripping is a grooming technique specifically designed for dogs with wiry or coarse coats. It involves manually removing dead hair from the dog's coat by plucking it out using fingers or a stripping knife. This process helps maintain the coat's texture, color, and overall health.

Benefits of Hand Stripping Grooming

Hand stripping grooming offers several benefits for your furry friend. Unlike traditional clipping, hand stripping helps maintain the natural texture and color of your dog's coat. This method also promotes healthy hair growth and reduces shedding, keeping your pet's coat looking and feeling its best.

Other benefits of hand stripping grooming include:

  • Promotes Healthy Coat: Hand stripping helps remove dead hair and excess undercoat, allowing new, healthy fur to grow in.
  • Preserves Coat Quality: By manually removing dead hair, hand stripping helps maintain the natural texture and color of the dog's coat.
  • Reduces Shedding: Hand stripping can significantly reduce shedding, keeping your home cleaner and minimizing allergy issues.
  • Improves Skin Health: By removing dead hair, hand stripping allows better air circulation to the skin, reducing the risk of skin issues.

Hand Stripping Grooming FAQs

  • What are the Benefits of Hiring a Dog Walker?

    Hiring a dog walker benefits both you and your pup. These benefits include:

    • Regular walks promote health and exercise for your dog. In order to remain healthy your dog needs exercise and hiring a dog walker can help them achieve regular walks. 
    • Walking can help to eliminate destructive behavior at home. Hiring a dog walker will help to allow your dog to relieve his/her pent-up energy. In turn, your dog will be less likely to chew, bite, and bark during the day.
    • Mid-day walks with a dog walker can provide companionship. Your pet will likely be happier if they have social interaction while you're away.
    • Scheduled walks allow you to run errands after work without feeling guilty that your pup is home alone. You will have peace of mind knowing that your dog was able to get the exercise and relief they needed during their walk. 
  • Will you also take in my mail, water the plants, etc. when I am out of town?

    Yes! We can take in the mail, water plants, rotate your lights, etc. Just let us know what you need while you are gone! 

  • Do you administer medication?

    Yes, we do. Depending on the type of medication administration that is needed, there may be an additional fee.

  • How do I know that my dog was actually walked?

    Our Woofie’s app includes a GPS tracking system so you can see the route your walker took when walking your dog. 

  • How do you enter my home for service?

    Woofie’s requires two forms of entry to the home. If a key/s is one or more forms of entry, then a lockbox is required to ensure your key/s always stay on premises. A Woofie’s lockbox (which is yours to keep) is available for purchase if need be.

  • Do your sitters have background checks?

    Yes, all of our team members must undergo background checks upon hiring.
