Yorkshire Terriers are cute and funny dogs. But they naturally have very long hair, which must be trimmed regularly. Otherwise, it will drag along the ground, the dog will collect all the dirt while walking, it will look untidy. If you are going to exhibit your pet, you cannot do without a haircut from the master at the pet salon. If you plan to go online, you can cut your Yorkie yourself.
It is necessary
Scissors, comb, hair clipper, chalk
First, comb the dog's coat thoroughly and gently. Remove all tangles, stuck together hairs. If it is difficult to do this, use crushed chalk: apply it to the coat and then comb it. Then dry the fur, make a straight parting on the back.
Now you can start cutting. Using scissors, carefully trim the cut ends to the desired length. Work the area from the forehead to the nose. It should be an even triangle. Trim the hair under the ponytail, groin and armpits, and leave 5 mm around the paw pads. Cut the hair on the chest and neck down to the lower jaw. The ponytail can be cut the way you like - look at the photo, get creative.
Now you can take care of the ears - the fur on them also needs to be trimmed. Use tweezers to remove excess hairs from the ear canal. Then trim the hair on the ears in the form of an inverted Latin V. On the ears it is better to use a clipper. Trim the hairs shorter from the upper third of the ear, trim in the direction of hair growth. Treat both the outside and the inside of the ear. When finished, trim the edges with scissors, forming a sharp corner.
