Coat

With long, fine and silky hair, the Yorkshire has a steel-blue and brown (golden) coat that varies from darkest at the root to lighter at the tips. The puppies of the breed, however, are born with black and brown fur that lighten as the animal grows. It needs regular brushing, but the Yorkshire Terrier doesn't shed a lot. Knots, however, can be a problem for tutors, who often end up preferring to keep their pets with the "baby grooming", where the hair is shorter and easier to maintain.

Taking Care of a Yorkshire Terrier

They need regular weekly baths and daily brushing. You should also pay close attention to your teeth, brushing them daily to avoid problems such as gingivitis and plaque buildup (tartar). Because it has a very delicate stomach, the Yorkshire Terrier can have gastrointestinal problems more easily, so it is important to maintain a balanced diet using quality products. The right food will also ensure that the animal is always shiny and silky, as it should be. The Yorkshire does not tolerate too much cold or too much heat and is a breed that should not be left outside, in the yard, for example. They are puppies to be kept indoors, which does not exclude the fact that they need outdoor exercise, with stimulating play and whenever possible interaction with other people and animals.
