Yorkshire Terriers rarely wash with joy. But if the owner will show patience and ingenuity, bathing of a puppy can become a pleasant procedure. Bathing is the best to be performed in the bathroom. Bathing in a basin supplied, for example, on a chair, is undesirable because, as a puppy might, gasp, turn it over and hurt itself.
Any prophylactic line of cosmetics contains a super cleaning shampoo for the first wash and a vegetable and protein shampoo for the second wash. All preventive shampoos are quite concentrated so should be diluted in a ratio which depends on the particular dog’s fur.
In order to dillute a useful regular shampoo a bottle with a pump dispenser can be useful and for a conditioner you may apply spray.
The water should be diluted so that it is warm, about 36-37°C. The shampoo is better to be diluted with water. It is best to pour it on hands, apply it in gentle moves on the dog’s coat in the direction of hair growth for it to avoid messing.
How Often to Bathe

Now you need to dry the hair. To dry it is necessary, because the puppy might catch cold, it may develop otitis media. For drying you need use two warm towels – drying must not injure the skin of the puppy.
After the washing was made, York can be dried in the dryer, just with warm air but not hot and cold one. To dry hair, you need pull it a little by scratching on the back down from the parting – just as neatly as your own hair, smoothing the curls.
Before drying the eyes should be dripped and the ears cleaned. It’s better to start drying with the problem areas: belly, paws, behind ears, neck. So as for the strands not to interfere they can be fixed with clamps.
