The Yorkie has a single layer of hair instead of layers of fur like other dogs. This makes conditioning the Yorkie’s coat a necessity. However, a conditioner that is too heavy may weigh the coat down and make it look thin. Therefore, consider making your own natural rosemary conditioner that is safe and has a nice aroma.

Step 1

Pour 4 cups of water in a medium pot and bring it to a boil over high heat.

Step 2

Add 2 teaspoons of fresh rosemary to the boiling water. Remove the pot from the heat and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. The steeping creates a rosemary tea. The tea provides a nice aroma and conditioning for the Yorkie's thin, fine coat.

Step 3

Strain the rosemary from the mixture using a towel draped over a colander. Catch the water and rosemary mixture in a clean bowl.

Step 4

Pour the mixture into a spray bottle after it cools. After washing your Yorkie, spay the rosemary conditioner over her coat.
