For those that just want to keep a Yorkshire in a pet clip, what we’re going to do with this Yorkshire Terrier here is clip him off with a number four blade all over his body, scissor his legs and scissor his head and trim his ears. He’s got quite a thick wooly coat which would meet up quite easily so it’s actually better off clipped out unless someone has got the time to spend grooming him and grooming him and his coat does grow pretty fast. But if it's clipped off about every eight weeks that should be sufficient.
You could go of a larger blade like a number seven if you want but I’m going to do him with a number and I want to start at the back of the head. I’ve started at the back of the head, tipping the blade flat against the body, gently pulling the skin forward. If dogs already been bath and groomed out, some people prefer to clip off a dog that’s been bath and groomed out first. It does save on your blades but then again some people don’t see the point of bathing and grooming out a coat is going to be clipped off so it’s your preference. Right underneath the neck hair and I cut behind the ear. Get rid some of this hair, one of my pet hates to have hair everywhere when I’m working.
Here we go. Right now, we’ve got a clipped out body and we just want to trim it all into proportion now. Hopefully, this dog will stand for me. You can use a restriction on if you want to. If you have to cut a difficult dog, you can normally buy those at dog stores, from people that design a dog. I just want to go to the back now and trim so I’m trimming his back legs. You can do this with a clip if you’re not too sure. You do this to the dogs as well. Trim underneath the pads like this.
Just keep pulling the hair forward and then clipping it down maybe with the rest of it. You can cut that under his pads, his belly, around his legs and his body is being clipped and this dog got quite big ears but there’s quite lots of hair on them. And this can be taken off of the clippers. I’ll show you with the clippers. You just do at the top of the ear, triangle at the top of the ear. Being quite a fine blade, they less likely to catch the ear level adjust the cap of the front part of the ear, that’s the turning point that you can see. Go with the grind of the hair and where it grow and now with the scissors, trim off keeping your thumb and your index fingers close to the ear level as possible.
Now the head, there’s different way you can do the head. You could even go across the head with the clippers or you could go just at the back here but you have to be careful not to catch the corners of the ears here especially if you’re using a number four blade which is what I would probably use. Try not to cut the hair that comes immediately down here because that tends to go back into the eye. So, let it grow down. This still has at one point being cut by the looks of it. So, what you can do if the dog does get the hair, once the hair starts to grow down, you can just put a little bit of Vaseline just to keep the hair out of the eyes. But his hair here, it goes up between the eyes, just throw yourself apart in. Along the bridge of nose there and the hair that goes up between the eyes can be trimmed. Now for the head, some people scissor it, he’s got quite a thick coat that grows very quickly so I think I will take the number four clipper blade over the head.
Hold the blade perfectly still. I’ve got my finger underneath mustache here and my thumb on top, keeping the head perfectly still and across on top of the head, the back of the head. Just be careful of the ears here so that we don’t touch the ears in the clipper this is quite a wide blade. On a very fine coaty dog, I’d be inclined to trim the head with a scissor more than anything else. I’m going to also come down just on the side of the thigh here and I’m going to finish up with a scissor. I will start it, good boy!
Now, I’m holding his mouth and underneath his head, keep on the grip for the dog, again hold the dog all the time. Then the ear still got—she doesn’t keep his ears up so I want to try and just blend it over neatly for him. Just pull his hair forward—this is around it off then I follow this line along to the other side. His look doesn’t seem having his hair being trimmed for some reason. Just follow the line around. I just want to keep the dog’s head still as you can and then just following that line cutting it all straight across then until you get to the other side and then same on the other side.
All right, we’ve done everything that needs to be done and now we have a nice little Yorkshire Terrier and the pet trimmed ready to go out and enjoy himself.
