How To Bathe A Yorkie

How do I prevent my Yorkie’s hair from tangling in the bath?

One big mistake that Yorkie owners make is using circular, rubbing motions while applying shampoo to their dogs’ hair. These motions create lots of tangles that can be hard to remove. To avoid these tangles, apply shampoo to your Yorkshire terrier’s body using directional strokes, following the length of the hair.

Do I need to use a conditioner?

Most Yorkshire terriers benefit from the application of conditioners. Conditioners make Yorkies hair smooth and less prone to tangling. Leave the conditioner in your Yorkie’s hair for at least a couple of minutes before rinsing it away to help the hair more readily accept the conditioning benefits.

How should I dry my Yorkie?


To conclude, it is important that you bathe your Yorkie when required or at least once every two to four weeks to ensure that their coat is healthy, using a good quality shampoo and conditioner. However, be cautious not to over bathe them as this will cause their skin to dry out, resulting in skin conditions such as flaking or worse, a rash.
