COAT & GROOM TIPS

The soft coat of this breed requires regular grooming to keep it from matting. The coat should be shiny, fine, soft and silky. Over the body it should be long. There are some trimming touches applied to this breed, like the tips of ears and evening feet hair for a neat appearance. Banding hair keeping from laying in the face of the dog is common.

To prevent water from entering ears be sure to place cotton balls in the ears. If the pet has white areas using a whitening shampoo or rinse on those areas.

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

Wash the haircoat with a light touch to maintain optimum silkiness. Allow the shampoo to dissolve dirt and grime.
