Dog Grooming/Clippered Not Stripped


Hello Elizabeth,
My Min Schnauzer is almost 2 years old. He has been stripped all his life with the exception of about a week ago. Will he ever be able to be strip again (I am praying so)? What do I need to do as his new coat comes in?

If he has really been stripped as you say, then all you need to do is let it grow out completely 5 to 6 months. If however you have it done again it won't be so easy. Just make sure that it doesn't happen again or it will be more difficult next time.
Good luck
