|Problem is that clipping will need to be done more often, like every 6 to 8 weeks so cost might not be that beneficial.
However, it will definitely be easier on him, and much faster!!! A Brussels griffon has a softer coat naturally, so I really don't think you will notice much difference there, AND keeping him regularly clipped will also remove those loose hairs so I doubt you will notice any shedding either.
As a groomer I DON'T hand strip... I know how but I have groomed so long that I have lots of arthritis in my fingers so it hurts me and is too time consuming to make it worthwhile around here in our rural area.
If you absolutely hate it, you CAN let it all grow out and start your stripping again. In about three strippings the coat will be back to what it is now.
