Mr. N is a Yorkie/Maltese mix and has hair instead of fur so he gets frequent baths and he goes through this grief process every bath time. To meet his high maintenance grooming needs, we turned to a company that specifically makes grooming products for Yorkies. Yorkie Splash and Shine sent us their shampoo, conditioner and detangling spray to try out.
They also did a Q & A for us about their products.
Q: How would you describe the specific needs of Yorkies (grooming-wise)?
A: Yorkies need special attention paid to their skin and coats for a number of reasons, the most important of which, in my opinion, is that their hair is much like a human’s. They have one hair per follicle and their hair continues to grow throughout life. Most dog breeds only grow their fur to a terminating length, at which point the fur will not get any longer. Yorkies, on the other hand, will continue to gain length in the hairs forever. This means regular brushing and washing, even conditioning, is extremely important.
Q: What makes your shampoo so suitable for Yorkies?
A: Our shampoo is a natural soap, and it has a high pH, making it perfect for the higher pH skin of dogs.
Q: Does it work for other breeds as well?
A: Absolutely! Our products work well on all breeds of dogs, even cats. We have many customers who use our products on other breeds of dogs.
Q: Do you have other new products you’re planning on adding?
A: We are always adding limited edition detangler fragrances. We are also always on the lookout for products our customers would love. Generally, we add products after our customers ask for them.
