COAT & GROOM TIPS

Silky Terriers have a single (as opposed to double) coat which is by its breed name, "silky," straight and shiny. There is only a moderate tendency to tangle and matt, especially if the dog gets wet or even damp. If your Silky Terrier should have more of a soft coat as opposed to the breed standard silky coat, be aware that your pet's coat is subject to increased opportunity for tangling and matting.

Don't overly scrub the haircoat during the bath to protect its silky nature, and allow the shampoo instead to dissolve dirt and grime.

MORE GROOMING TIPS FOR PROFESSIONALS

Be sure to fluff-dry the Silky Terrier. It's important to to groom the ears afterward to improve their neat appearance.

These books contain little or no breed specific grooming information. They do provide very good to excellent general breed information. Of course, having pictures of the breed is a great help when grooming the breed compared to having nothing else.
