How often should Yorkies be bathed?

Yorkies need regular baths to remove dirt and natural oils from their hair. The easiest way to bathe your Yorkie is filling the tub so it’s about armpit-deep first; some Yorkies are scared of the sound of running water.

How often should you bathe a Yorkie?
As a general rule, you should bathe your Yorkie around every 2-3 weeks. It’s okay to bathe your Yorkie weekly but this usually isn’t necessary. Yorkies with long hair may need to be bathed more often than pups with short hair.

How often do you bathe a Yorkie puppy?
Yorkie puppies can be bathed every couple of weeks, just like adults. It’s a good idea to get your pup used to take regular baths while they’re young so they can get accustomed to the water and noise.
