Your Furry Yorkie is Actually Hairy!

Yorkie hair needs daily grooming just like us!

A Tail of Yorkie Hair

Yorkie hair vs fur: a Yorkie’s coat is among the many things that make them a special breed. Because of the length and thickness of the strands, Yorkshire terriers’ coats are hair, not fur. Another reason to love these beautiful dogs. This means that they’re a great pet for dog-lovers who are allergic to fur, but it also means that Yorkie hair needs to have daily care and grooming, and it changes how the dogs interact with various climates.

Hypoallergenic Dogs?

Many people with sensitive airways due to asthma or allergies think that they can’t own a dog. This isn’t necessarily true, certain dogs are more hypoallergenic than others. This is because Yorkies have a single coat, and don’t shed as much as other dogs. Of course, no dog is 100 percent hypoallergenic, so it is good to know if it is dog fur you are allergic to or something else like saliva or dander.

What Kind of Coat Does Your Yorkie Have?

While Yorkies are all furless, their coats are not homogenous. To understand how best to groom your Yorkie, you should first identify the kind of coat it has. This will depend on their age and breed, as Yorkie puppies’ coats change when they grow up. This article will help you identify the type of coat your Yorkie has, as well as the best way to maintain it.

Cold Weather Challenges for Yorkies

Now because of their single coat of hair, Yorkie’s have a hard time adjusting to the cold weather. This means that when winter rolls around if you live in a cold dry place, you should prepare yourself to warm up your best friend. A Yorkie may experience higher appetite during the winter months and a decreased desire to exercise in the cold. This is perfectly normal, just make sure when your dog does want to walk, they’re well wrapped up. Besides, the snow is the perfect excuse to get your cute puppy in a sweater!
