Hand Stripping:
Hand Stripping is the dead hair being pulled out, instead of cutting the hair with clippers, so a new wire can coat grow in. Stripping maintains a proper wire coat, while clipping makes it soft and ruins the texture of a show kept dog. It grows thicker and soft and often the colour will change.
To maintain the proper breed look. It is very hard to imitate that look on many wire coated breeds if you clip them. However it will do no real harm for pets if you do not care about that look.
It does not hurt, they may not like it, but it is not painful when done properly. Wire hair is not attached like our own hair or breeds with other types of coats. Many dogs like it, it must feel like having your back scratched!
Unlike some purists we at Posh Pets Spain clip the dogs’ tender spots, like bellies, instead of stripping, even for show dogs.

Expect to pay a lot more, at least double, what the clipping price would be. It is very labour intensive. We ask that dogs stay the whole day with us for this service.

Cat Grooming:

Cat Grooming & clipping:

Cats are neat freaks. In fact as you know a cat is a fastidious groomer. After all, it seems to spend most of its life either sleeping or grooming! However sometimes they need a helping hand. Grooming is about more than just keeping your cat looking good. Grooming your cat on a regular basis will also help you to keep an eye on its health. And grooming a cat can even help to prevent feline health issues such as digestive problems caused by hairballs.
Regular grooming can also help to improve the health of your cat’s skin and coat.
The cat grooming takes place here at Posh Pets Spain at a quieter period of the day.
We offer full grooms as well as half clips or styled clips such as a lion clip.
We can also give cats a pedicure, ear clean a dry shampoo or a full wet Shampoo package using only hypoallergenic ingredients.

* We never use sedatives on ANY Dog or Cat at Posh Pets Spain.
