A little over a month ago I had a new client bring in a 6 month old yorkie for her first groom. The groom went ok- but I had to shave the dog down with a 5 blade because of matting.
In another breed I would have called the source of the matting 'undercoat'. It was a different texture and density than the hair undreneath the layer of matting, which was about 1/2" away from the skin. It looked like this coat had been blown, but had not dropped out. (I did discuss proper brushing with the owner when she came for her dog.)
I'd like to know; what was that stuff? Puppy coat? It looked exactly like a double coated dog (such as a Keeshound) has dropped their winter coat, is not brushed out, and comes in with a layer of matted fur sandwitched between layers of unmatted fur. Thanks

Yep, puppycoat. I have had to strip numerous yorkies with this type of matting. Don't you love it when you get a call for a first groom on a 6 month old Yorkie? All I can think of is "snap snap snap screeeeeeeaaaaaam snap snap wiggle snap snap spin spin spin screeeeeeaaaaam"

I always expect that kind of matting on any new Yorkie puppy. It's just something with their coats....

BOY NOTHING HARDER THAN A YORKIE PUPPY. THEY HAVE SUCH ATTITUDE AND SO MANY HAVE AWFUL COATS. THEY ARE SO POPULAR THAT THEY ARE NOT BEING BRED WITH THE TEMPERMENTS AND COAT THEY USED TO HAVE. ONE OF MY LEAST FAVORITE PUPPYS TO WORK ON!
