Yorkies need to be brushed at least weekly. Grooming topics include best appearance and health, bathing, clearing hair mats, nail
clippping, soothing your puppy, gaining his trust
Your teacup Yorkie’s nails should be clipped weekly. Your Yorkie (teacup or standard) puppy will have already had it’s nails trimmed several times prior to delivery to you. If done weekly, it is only necessary to clip the very tip of the yorkie’s nails, thus avoiding getting into the “quick,” which of course hurts the yorkie. If the Yorkie is never hurt by nail clipping, he won’t be afraid and struggle, which makes the job very difficult to do. If you do clip into the quick, it may be necessary to use a product to stop bleeding. I like the gel formula by “Quick Stop,” available through Revival Animal Health.
