|Stripping does hurt the dog in the beginning, and continues to be painful in the sensitive areas. If you're not going to show your westie, there is no need to strip the coat. Like the other poster mentioned, it will be difficult to find someone to hand strip and at a reasonable price. Here in Phx one guy who used to show westies charges 90 bux per session. Stripping is an ongoing task. The first few times, your poor little guy will be bald. If you're interested in stripping, I highly recommend contacting your local westie club for info regarding grooming seminars.
If you're having a hard time finding a groomer in your area, contact your local westie club for referrals. You can find a parent club by going to the National Westie Club website. They can offer a wealth of information on the westie breed.
