Yorkies have sensitive skin and long hair that requires special care when bathing. Using a gentle dog shampoo formulated for sensitive skin is important to avoid irritation. Yorkies’ long hair can easily become tangled and matted when wet, making post-bath grooming a challenge. Owners need to be extra careful when brushing and drying their Yorkie’s hair to avoid discomfort. In addition, Yorkies do not like water and may resist getting wet during bath time. This can make the bathing process stressful for both dog and owner. Owners should be patient and gentle, as Yorkies may squirm and try to escape during the bath.
