Yesterday I posted a picture of one of my past puppies in full coat on Facebook and said that taking care of a Yorkie in full coat isn’t really that hard and of course the questions came pouring in. The thing I was asked most is what grooming products I use on my adult Yorkies so here’s a quick list.
Shampoo – Chris Christensen Spectrum Ten
Conditioner – Chris Christensen Spectrum Ten
. You may have to play with this a little depending on the thickness and texture of your dog’s coat. I use it straight from the bottle for my Yorkies with thicker coats, I dilute it a lot for some and I dilute it just a little for others.
Detangling / Conditioning Spray – This is the one product I can not live without!!! Just be careful because it makes my floor super slippery if the overspray gets on it (and I have the bruises to prove it LOL) Brush – this brush comes in a few shapes and sizes. I like longer pins (22 mm) and oval shape but you can’t go wrong with any of them. Pin brushes are perfect to use for both, when blow drying and for everyday brushing.
This slicker brush is what I use for getting out tangles.
Comb – after I brush I go over my Yorkies with a comb to make sure I got all of the tangles out.
The Peanut is the perfect size buzzer to use to tip ears and clean the hair off the bottom of their feet.
I hope this answers everyone’s questions.
