Dog Fancy magazine’s Dog Channel has an article on terrier stripping, which warns:
Don’t try this at home until you learn how from a knowledgeable groomer or breeder. Beyond the stripping technique, you also need to know the “lines” of your breed to groom your terrier properly. For the Border or Parson Russell, styling is easy because their coats are stripped short all over their bodies. For others, like the West Highland White, Cairn, Lakeland, Wire Fox, Australian, or Norfolk, you need to blend the back, chest, and legs, so there won’t be a sharp demarcation line between short and longer areas. Each terrier head has its own look as well, from the angled eyebrows and distinctive beard of the Scottie to the face-framing “ruff” of the Westie and Cairn.
