Nail its head to a door or table, cut around the head, then with two pairs of pliers pull the skin from head to tail. Sounds a bit drastic but thats the easiest way I know.

the easiest way to skin doggies af ter you havae gutted them is to pull of the fins and place them under the hot water tap for1-2 mins then get a blunt knife and scrape lightly.the skin will just fall off.hope this helps bingey :D ;) :)

Ahem ....

After a little while overseas, I've found the best way to skin dogs is to make a small incision just above the groin, then push one's hand in to separate the pelt from the visceral flesh. This is far neater than attempting to flense with a sharp knife, and one needs only cut the pelt as you progress toward the throat. At the top of each limb, go as far as you can then slice to the foot with the knife. Beginners may find it easiest to take off each foot neatly above the fetlock, remembering it is the quality of the body of the pelt, not the legs, which makes for a decent jacket or winter stole for the wives. Peg out and scrape/salt depending on intended use.

It's also a jolly good idea to ensure they really are dead before starting this process.

Does this help?

I have cooking tips on avoiding trichinosis, but they're mainly the same as for pork.

seen them being skinned in newlyn fishmarket buy the boat load in the eighties. A big nail was driven into a post at an upward facing angle. The dogfish was hung off the nail on the underside of the fish. a small cut was made around the fish behind and around the sides and the skins simply pulled off in one swift action. They did make it look easy but then again they did it for a living.

After reading all that I don't think I'll bother! (I'll stick to Whiteys, Flatties & Cod)
