Groomer List By State


All our "show Wires" are hand stripped but some of our AfterAll families want to have their pets stripped to maintain the bright color and wire texture too. Most choose a modified stripping. That can be done by just stripping the color, clipping the white and scissoring the furnishings. It's not only much easier on the dogs but is less expensive than having the dogs completely stripped. It can be hard to find groomers experienced with either stripping or clipping Wires. Too many Wires end up looking like Schnauzers so it's worth the search to have your WFT looking the way it should.
 

The following is a listing of groomers who hand strip terriers that has been posted on some Terrier lists and websites. I have no idea of when this list was created, so it may or may not be current. However, it will give you a start in finding someone to groom your Wire.

It is only a listing, not an endorsement.
