How to brush a Yorkie? Here are the best tips for brushing Yorkie’s hair

  • The perfect time duration for brushing is between 10-15 minutes but needs more if a dog’s hair is tangled.
  • Perfect time to brush your pup is right after giving him a bath; however, you may brush him whenever you feel tangled hair on his coat. For short hair pup you need to brush twice a week, and for long-hair Yorkie, you need to brush thrice a week.
