When someone has a Yorkshire Terrier, they may think that they only have two options when it comes to haircuts....The long show dog style or the puppy cut.
However, with clean, healthy hair there are actually many different grooming styles of various lengths and styles that an owner may wish to try out.
When you don't shave the coat short, you can experiment a lot...And if you have shaved close, the coat will grow relatively quickly, thus allowing you to try out different styles soon after.
Many choose a style based on the home environment and the normal day to day activities of the family....For example, longer styles will need more grooming...This is mainly to keep the coat tangle free. They will also need more upkeep with trimming done more often. However, no one can argue how beautiful the dog looks in a longer cut. With this said, it really is an option for those who have the time to put into it.
For those with active dogs who play outside a lot or for owners who do not have the time to devote to longer styles, a shorter Yorkie haircut may be in order. Shorter options will not develop as many tangles...and the dog will stay cleaner, in general.
One of the great things about this breed is that different styles are basically endless....You can begin with the base of an idea and then add you own personal touches, to create a truly unique look.
So, let's take a look at your top choices!
