    How short are you thinking?

    When I had people who wanted a Yorkie 'short', usually I used a 5\8ths blade on them, which left a decent amount of coat on them; a 3 3\4 blade left a nice amount too.

    If you want really short I would ask for a 5 or 7 blade.

    Just make sure you specify to leave the head or just to shorten it to match the cut...some groomers are daft enough to take the head right off!

    At the salons I work at I have a scrapbook of breeds and their clips/grooms. It means if people aren't sure of what they want (or have trouble describing it in words) they can have a look through the pictures. Its a great idea and people love looking through it. I do have a picture of a few Yorkie clips but it depends on how short is short? There are some Yorkies I do on a comb, that leaves the coat about 2.5+ inches long, some I take off with the clippers on a #4. I don't know how to post an image on a reply thread that isn't a 'http' but I'm sure I can work it out :P

    If you can tell me how short you want it I can prob get a picture for you..
    Cheers

    Look thru the before and after threads in this forum. There are a few cute yorkie styles in there. You can also opt for a short body, and a schnauzer face...I think yorkies look really cute and stylish with schnauzer faces..

    Hi! I groom a lot of Yorkshire Terriers at my shop. This is a "Scnorkie" trim I like to do. This a picture from when I was in grooming school, but it's a style that I do on most Yorkshires. It's a schnauzer trim body, and a round Yorkie head. I ussually do the back with a #3 3/4 to a #7 blade. I hand scissor the legs and leave a skirt. Same pattern as a Schnauzer. The head is round, and I shave the tips of the ears with a #10-#15 depending on the coat and what looks good. I think it really complements Yorkshire Terriers.
