Check their ears for wax or debris. Use a dog-friendly ear cleaner and cotton wool to gently clean the inside of their ears. Be careful not to go too deep and damage the eardrums.
After cleaning their ears, it’s time to trim their nails. Use dog nail clippers or a grinder to carefully trim the tips of their nails. Be careful not to cut too close to the quick as this can cause bleeding and pain.
Once their nails are trimmed, it’s time for a bath. Use a mild dog shampoo suitable for their sensitive skin. Start by wetting their fur thoroughly and then lather the shampoo, being careful not to get it in their eyes or ears. Rinse their fur until the water runs clear and then gently towel dry.
After the bath, it’s time to cut their hair. Use thinning shears or a pair of scissors to carefully trim the hair around the face, paws and tail. Make sure you only remove any damaged or excess hair, as Yorkie’s hair tends to matt.
Finally, end the grooming session by brushing his teeth. Use a dog-friendly toothbrush and toothpaste to clean their teeth and freshen their breath.
In general, grooming a Yorkshire Terrier includes brushing their hair, cleaning their ears, clipping their nails and hair, bathing and brushing their teeth. By following these steps, you can keep your Yorkie looking clean and presentable.
