How Often to Bathe Your Yorkie
Updated: May 4, 2021
Bathing should be done no more than weekly if possible, they need the oils from their skin to keep a healthy coat & skin. Use a PH balanced moisturizing shampoo, (with no sulphates) using a quality shampoo will prevent the hair being stripped. Cheap shampoos are high in detergent leaving a rough cuticle layer of the hair shaft, conditioner is necessary in this case.
If you use a quality shampoo you shouldn’t need conditioner, conditioner is often too heavy for the soft silky yorkie coat. If you feel need something just a lightweight spray detangler.
Only brush their hair when it is dry with a soft bore bristle brush this gives them a nice scratch but isn't too rough for their skin, this should be done daily.
