They will also need more upkeep with trimming done more often. This is a good choice if you want the hobby of grooming your dog, which some people find to be rather fun; and of course, it's needed for show. Though it's time consuming, 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 consistent, long-term time to put into it.
For those with active dogs that 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. Close puppy cuts options will not develop as many tangles...and the dog will stay cleaner, in general.
Shaping via layering is one of the most popular hair style choices for this breed. And the nice thing about trimming the coat is that it really makes the Yorkie look neat and tidy.
While it doesn't last long without touch-ups, its one of the best ways to show that you put time and effort into your dog's 'style'. While shorter coats are easier to brush, comb and keep mat-free, shaping the coat with layered streamlining is also one of the most effective ways to give your Yorkie a pleasing 'put together' appearance.
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. Since the coat can grow rather long and it is safe to shave any area of the body short (just so long as skin is not showing), you may choose any area(s) to clip or grow out, which gives you unlimited styles. So, let's take a look at your top choices!
