Coat

With long and silky hair that can reach approximately 15 cm in length, the Australian silky terrier is usually found in gray and gold colors and can be quite confused with a Yorkshire by those who do not know the breed. The tips of its fur, however, are not smooth like those of its closest relative, presenting a more curly touch. Daily brushing is recommended, as they can develop knots very easily. Grooming with scissors can be performed two to three times a year to remove excess and to facilitate maintenance.

Taking Care of a Silky Terrier Australiano

Aside from grooming their coat and expending their energy, the Australian Silky Terrier doesn't require much special attention. Offering quality food, keeping vaccinations and deworming up to date, taking daily walks and having annual consultations with a veterinarian usually ensures their longevity.
