As I suggest to my customers, It is up to you if you want to comb and brush your pup very often, each and every day, you can keep it long. To make it much easier on you and your dog, keep it clean cut and short, much easier to manage, eliminating most chances of mats. Hope this helps.
I just signed up to hubpages and right off the bat i looked to see if any one has wrote about Yorkies. Im a very small yorkie breeder and my babies are just the love of my like. They do take a lot of care. But i don't mind.
