Question by Niki: How do you give an energetic one year old Yorkie a haircut?
My yorkie is one year old and I need to trim his hair, but he gets extremely hyper or energetic when I try to cut his hair. Is there some sedative that I could give to him? Someone told me that Benadryl could be used and when I looked it up I could not find anything. His hair is getting tangled and mangled because he acts the same way when I try to brush his hair so it is hard to just brush his hair. Please help me–how can I brush his hair and trim it to keep his coat in a good condition?

With a little dog, you can brush their hair easier if you pick him up and hold him in one hand, on your hip. It’s hard for dogs to struggle in that position, and they’re high up so they usually don’t want to.
