Pet Yorkies Gallery
People quite often ask if they can keep their adult pet Yorkies in long coat. Here are some Yorkie pets pictures that are being kept in long coat by their pet owners. Although it's not necessary to keep your adult Yorkshire Terrier pets in coat and in fact quite a number of pet owners do adorable cut downs, and you can see some adorable examples and get some grooming information at Grooming Yorkies if that is the way you have chosen to keep your dog. It really is a matter of personal choice.
If you want to grow your pet Yorkshire Terriers hair long then by all means do so. It doesn't hurt to give it a try and see what all is involved. I think you might be really surprised that it's a lot less work than you think, especially if you have a proper silk coated one. A lot of time people like to keep them cut short so they can keep them dressed in cute dresses or shirts and jackets. Nothing wrong with that, I've done the same with some of my champions over the years when they were finished showing to their championships. The things you need to know about keeping them dressed is that it will be necessary to keep regular haircuts maintained on your dogs. When the hair grows too long, the friction of the clothes rubbing against the hair will cause the hair to mat underneath the clothing, so you have to make sure you are watching for that so it doesn't happen or you will be dealing with a lot of itching, scratching and sore red spots caused by the mats. Otherwise it really is a matter of what you would like with your own dog. Nothing is more beautiful than a Yorkshire Terrier in full coat, but they also look adorable cut down. Let's face it, they're just cute whether they are coated or cut down. And you can't ask for a better pet.
Don't assume that show exhibitors only have show dogs in their litters. This is something I hear quite often. There are lots of reasons that a show exhibitor may place a puppy as a pet. Mostly it's just that they want a loving pet home for their baby where they will be doted on for the rest of their lives as they deserve.
