If you have a Yorkie, you will need to take care of your pet. But if you start using professional services, you will see how costly it may be. That is why it is essential to learn the affordable ways of taking care of your Yorkie. The greatest problem of any owner of Yorkie is to manage hair of your dog properly. This type of dogs needs regular grooming and care that may take a lot of time and efforts. Using professional grooming services is easy but you can save on them.

If you do not pay the needed attention to hair of your Yorkie, it can become matted and get out of control. One of the ways to keep the coat of your dog in a perfect condition is using regular bathing. You do not need to bathe your pet every day but you need to find time for that process at least once a month. To achieve the best results, you need to take some details into account.Yorkshire grooming

The water needs to be comfortably warm and you should not exceed six inches when filling a bathtube. As a result, your dog will feel rather comfortable and you will be able to spend as much time as needed for cleaning the coat of your dog. It is better to start shampooing your dog with the head and to finish with the legs. Do not use human shampoos as humans and dogs have different skin water balances.

If you start using human shampoos, you will see that the skin of your dog may become dry and you will need to treat the associated skin conditions. After bathing, you need to dry your dog with a towel. Do not use a hair dryer as it will be rather difficult to comb the dog’s hair. Using a wide-tooth metal comb is a perfect way to comb your dog. Following the recommendations above, you will see that you do not need to spend hundreds on taking care of your dog.
