The big majority of Glen of Imaal Terrier breeders all agree the breed should be stripped. Some like to do it once a year and some twice. Some prefer to tip the coat and others to take it all out “to the pink”. Hairy monster or sleeker look; it’s horses for courses and owner preferred choice. The thing to remember though is to tell any new owners that Glens most certainly do require coat work as this heap of hair from one Glen (thanks Tiina) ably demonstrates.
