A Yorkshire terrier is a wonderful, affectionate, loving companion that provides individuals or families with many years of joy. It is an owner’s responsibility to provide their Yorkie with love and everything it needs, including proper grooming and to manage the Yorkshire terrier’s coat and keep it healthy and looking its best. Yorkies have no undercoat so are a ‘single’ coated breed with hair that is very much like humans. Their beautiful coat is a silky texture, fine, glossy, perfectly straight and moderately long. The Yorkie’s coat color is usually black and tan, black and gold, blue and tan, and blue and gold. They do not shed so a Yorkie is great for anyone that dislikes finding dog hair on their possessions or has allergies.

A Yorkshire terrier’s hair requires occasional clipping as it continuously grows and can become very long. Yorkies require regular daily combing and brushing to prevent their hair from becoming matted and to keep the dog looking its best. The best type of brush to use on your Yorkie is a pin brush, which reaches through their hair easily and has a soft rubber back. It is best to avoid nylon bristle brushes, natural bristle brushes, or ones that have a small ball on each pins end. These usually pull the dog’s fur making it uncomfortable for the puppy and often end up breaking the hair. Always mist your dog’s hair with conditioner and water before brushing as you should not brush their hair when it is completely dry.
