Silkshire Terrier Breed Maintenance
Both the Yorkshire Terrier and Silky Terrier are hypoallergenic, resulting is a hybrid that is also ideal for allergy sufferers. Because Silkshire Terriers have hair as opposed to the typical dog fur, they shed very little. Their long hair does require significant maintenance. This breed needs to be brushed daily to prevent tangling. Because their coat is more similar to human hair than the coats of most other breeds, these dogs also require more frequent bathing. The coat should be kept at approximately 6 inches long, and it should not touch the floor. Some Silkshire Terriers need to be trimmed about twice each year. Their hair should be kept out of their eyes, either by putting it in a top-knot or by having it trimmed. Their ears must be cleaned regularly to remove excess was and other debris. Their teeth should also be brushed regularly, and their nails should be kept neatly trimmed.
