Yorkshire terriers are fun, small-breed dogs with long black and brown hair. While the dog is small, grooming can be a big job. It's a good idea to hire a professional for full grooming a professional, but there are a few things you can do on your own.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Grooming table
  • Dog clippers
  • Clipper blade No.10 (other lengths are optional)
  • Dog brush or comb
  • Dog shampoo

  1. 1

    Place the Yorkshire terrier on a table or other sturdy surface to bring him to a comfortable working height.

  2. 2

    Use a No. 10 blade on the dog clippers to clip under the hind legs of the dog and under the tail.

  3. 3

    Comb through the dog's coat and remove any mats.

  4. 4

    Bathe and condition the Yorkshire terrier using a professional dog shampoo and conditioning treatment.

  5. 5

    Allow the dog to dry completely.

  6. 6

    Comb through the dog's coat after it's dry.

  7. 7

    Tie a top knot, the tuft of hair tied up on the top of the Yorkshire terrier's head, often tied with a ribbon or held with a barrette. Gather the hair from the base of the back of the head to the front of the ears and tie with a rubber band or hair clip.
