Hi I have a 10 month old wirehaired vizsla who has a shaggy/woolly coat we strip her with a stripping comb when she starts to malt but I was wonder when is the right age to hand strip her or is there any other way/tools of grooming that would take out the dead hair?
I’ve attached a photo of her coat!

Pretty pup! You can definitely start hand stripping now. My dog's coat got really woolly around 9 months and while it's still definitely not show-worthy the texture improved a great deal once I started grooming.



I use a variety of tools which I find helpful with a softer coat where hand stripping doesn't always work out painlessly.







  • A medium toothed stripping knife for body, "Medium Slant Tooth" same link as above




  • Lastly, a grooming stone (mine was actually sold as a sweater pill remover). This can be used in smaller pieces same way you would use a stripping knife or in larger pieces brushing over the body to catch stray hairs. second from the bottom at the link https://www.groomersmall.com/acc_knives.htm


There are tons of other brands out there with loyal followings, but I can personally speak to the quality of Mars' products.

Every time I see a WHV I just smile, it's just so...them.

The thought bubble over her shaggy little head must read something like "I'm in here, really I am!"'

Thank you for this I’ve heard mars coat king is good! I would take her some where and get her done but the bread isn’t that well know where I am from so I’m worried they will do it wrong!!
